Pink Floyd… What else can you say? I don’t think there is an album, B-side, bootleg that I don’t own (including Syd’s, Rogers’, Richard’s and David’s solo stuff)

I’m a Floyd nerd if there ever was one. Especially old Floyd like Piper at the Gates of dawn and Saucer Full of Secrets. In 1969 Pink Floyd released one of my favorite Albums (Double Album to be exact) called Ummagamma. With songs like “Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict” and “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” I could, uh, “zone out” so to speak and truly fall into the music. One of the best tracks in my opinion is…

Careful with that Axe, Eugene.

It was originaly the B-side to the single “Point me at the Sky” but the live version was tossed on to Ummagumma. Maybe they just needed more screaming :-)

The song that actually got me hooked on them. “Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves…”

Echoes (part 2) from Meddle

It’s so hard to pick tracks for this post without making it 10 pages long…

Pigs – from Animals)

Gotta throw a track from the Wall too…

Mother – The Wall

Wow… where has all the GOOD music gone? will we have to suffer through all this Brit-Brit crap and Hannah Montana BS for much longer?

Thank god for the 60’s. At least you Boomers did SOMETHING right. :-)
