I remember the day a friend borrowed me that VHS tape. He knew how much I like Pink Floyd. The Delicate Sound of Thunder instantly became part of the
soundtrack in the movie of my memories played in my mind.
One thing I can't forget through all these years is the backing vocals. Those sensational 3 girls : Rachel Fury, Durga McBroom and Machan Taylor. All
three amazing singers and hot.
The way they sing "The Great Gig in the Sky" was spiritual and sensual. But Machan, the last one in the song, left me without words. She's been
compared with the legendary Yma Sumac but I think they are totally different.
Searching on the web, I finally could learn more about these girls and what they were doing after that experience with Pink Floyd. According to IMD,
the back singer names are Durga McBroom, Rachel Fury and Margaret Taylor. A quick Bing search gave me references to Rachel and Durga, but when
searched for Margaret it comes out the bio of a former first lady (Lived: Sep 21, 1788 - Aug 14, 1852) , wife of Zachary Taylor. Later I found that
seems like Margaret Taylor prefer now to be known as Machan Taylor.
Believe it or not, I couldn't find a youtube video of "The Great Gig in the Sky", performed by Machan, Rachel and Durga. I found it on Dailymotion. www.dailymotion.com...
This thread is for you Rachel, Durga and specially for you Machan, you deserve a thread on ATS.
