Pink Floyd biography
PINK FLOYD can be considered as one of the leading bands in progressive rock from the seventies, together with YES and GENESIS. Their first line-up consisted of guitarist Syd BARRETT, bassist-singer Roger WATERS (who left the band in 1983), drummer Nick MASON and keyboardist Rick WRIGHT. Their early material was mostly written and sung by BARRETT, at that time the central figure of the group. The first album "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" of 1967 contains come catchy pop songs, together with more experimental and longer instrumental pieces. They even reached the Top-20 in England with the song "Arnold LAYNE". In the beginning of 1968, guitarist David GILMOUR joined the band to replace BARRETT in live performances. But BARRETT had to leave the group because of mental instability. In 1970 the band recorded some songs for the cult movie Zabriskie Point including an alternative version of 'Careful With That Axe, Eugene'.

PINK FLOYD became even more successful, whilst playing psychedelic progressive rock with a touch of classical music. 1971 saw the release of "Meddle" (a clever mix of short mellow jazzy tunes and lengthy experimentaltracks) and the soundtrack for the film "La Valle" ("Obscured By Clouds") was released in 1972. But their most successful album was definitely "Dark Side Of The Moon" (1973), cosmic rock produced by an excellent sound engineer Alan PARSONS. This album is a milestone in progressive rock, great songwriting with lots of special effects and including saxophone and great female vocals. The successor "Wish You Were Here" included the well-known epic song "Shine On You Crazy Diamond". "Animals" is a dark and underrated gem, featuring scathing lyrical accounts on humanity.

End 70's, Roger WATERS influenced both musical and lyrical the albums of the band. In 1979, they released "The Wall", a double album rock opera. After the release of "The Final Cut" in 1983 the band split up for a while. PINK FLOYD released a few albums afterwards without Roger WATERS, but they never reached their previous status. "Echoes", The Best of Pink Floyd, was released in 2001. To celebrate this 30th anniversary a new version of "Dark Side Of The Moon" has been released. This release is a must have for all music lovers young and old. Highly Recommended!

Review by VianaProghead

2 stars Review N 49

Pink Floyd were formed in 1965, and originally consisted of four university students Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason. In 1963 Mason and Waters initially met each other while they were studying architecture at the Regent Street Polytechnic, in London. The pair first played together on a band with some other band members, and later, another fellow also a student, Wright, joined to them. The name of the band was Sigma 6. In the late of 1963, with the age of 17, Barrett arrived at London to study at the Camberwell College of Art. Waters and Barrett were childhood friends. Waters often visited Barrett when he played guitar at his mother's house in Cambridge. Meanwhile, the original name of Sigma 6 changed to others on several occasions. In 1964, some band members left the group to form another band. So, one year later in 1965, the four students joined together and form the new band, The Pink Floyd Sound. The Pink Floyd Sound was created by Barrett and the name was derived from the names of two blues musicians Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, whose records Barrett had in his personal musical collection. The band's name was simplified, ending just as Pink Floyd.

When Barrett began to write his own musical compositions, strongly influenced by the British and the American psychedelic rock, soon Pink Floyd became as one of the favourite groups in the underground movement. So, the band was playing regularly at some places like the UFO Club, The Marquee Club and The Roundhouse.

At the end of 1966, Pink Floyd were invited to contribute with some songs to the film who was to be called 'Tonight Let's All Make Love In London' of Peter Whitehead. Whitehead began working on a project for the British Film Institute, a documentary which had the finality to transmit the essence of the live, in that authentic kaleidoscopic period, of the London's cultural history. In 11 January 1967, Pink Floyd went into the Sound Techniques Studio, in London, for a two days demo sessions, and they were filmed while the band played two long instrumental pieces 'Interstellar Overdrive' and 'Nick's Boogie'. Only a few excerpts of the Pink Floyd's music, made the final cut of 'Tonight Let's All Make Love In London', which eventually screened in December 1967. Nevertheless, these two songs were released on a kind of a live EP called 'London 66-67' and on a DVD, with the same name, both released in 1999.

This live album, with only two tracks, contains the first known live recordings of Pink Floyd. The Barrett's musical era of Pink Floyd is a strange audio experience indeed, and those who are familiar only with the band's music from the 70's and 80's musical material, might be a little bit surprised and even shocked with some lack of cohesion, melody and musical arrangements of their earlier musical period. This was only pure psychedelic music, added with an avant-garde attitude and experimentation, jazz, classical and a kind of an earlier progressive rock.

So and as I wrote before, the group performed two pieces of music in the Sound Techniques Studio. 'Interstellar Overdrive' was originally a psychedelic musical composition written in 1966, which appears for the first time on their debut studio album 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn' released in 1967 and with almost ten minutes length. At the time it was a staple for the band. However, the live version on this live album, as I said before, is an earlier version with almost seventeen minutes and which was recorded for the documentary film of Whitehead. This live version is, in my humble opinion, a superior version of its studio version, and is also more representative of the Pink Floyd's psychedelic sound of their earlier musical career. 'Nick's Boogie' was originally a song which was never recorded on any Pink Floyd studio albums. It's a live improvisation of an experimental piece of music based on Mason's drum work. This track has some interesting drum work, but is definitely much less interesting than the previous one.

Conclusion: This live album, is without any doubt an undeniable and historical very interesting live document, especially because it represents the first and rare live document by this indispensable and historical band, and also because it has a very rare participation, on live, of their founding guitarist band member, Barrett. Sincerely, this was the only real reason that made me buy this live album. For some who enjoy the groovy 60's musical aura, this live album probably will be a great album, but for the others, it might be a little bit boring and a disappointing thing. 'Live 66-67' is a very special Pink Floyd's album. If you are a fanatic fan of the earlier Pink Floyd's musical career, especially with Barrett as a band member, this is definitely a compulsory purchase. However, if you are only a fan of their more elaborated musical stage of the 70's and 80's, beware of it. For me, this is a nice album with some musical and historical interest, but that I don't play usually, and that I sincerely don't recommend to anyone, unless you are a real fanatic Pink Floyd's fan. So, I sincerely think that this is definitely an album only for collectors and fans, like me.

A Collection Of Great Dance Songs
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

3 stars "A Collection of Great Dance Songs". A funny title for a compilation album from a band which obviously didn't record dance songs, and with also a funny cover design from Hipgnosis. Released in November 1981. A strange compilation, I think. I don't know the real reasons why this compilation was released then. Maybe it was to make time between the release of "The Wall" (which was released in November 1979), the release of "The Wall" movie (in 1982), and the release of their next album, titled "The Final Cut" (a thing which happened until March 1983). (Bands in those years were expected to release new albums every year or at least every two years). Anyway, by late 1981 maybe Rick Wright's status in the band was still of an ex-member who was recruited to play in "The Wall" shows in 1980-81, or maybe by the time this compilation album was released he really was not associated with the band in any role anymore. At the time this wasn't known yet for the general public. It was until the release of "The Final Cut" that it was known that he wasn't in the band anymore.

So, the band released this compilation album in late 1981. The selection of the songs for this compilation is not bad, but it has a bias, at least in that of the six songs which were included, three of them ("Money", "Another Brick in the Wall Part Two" and "Sheep") were composed alone by Roger Waters, who since 1977 became the main songwriter in the band. And it was later known that those times were not very happy times for the band, with increasingly strained personal relationships between the rest of the members of the band which in late 1985 led to Waters to leave the band and to the legal battles for the name of the band in later years.

This album has the next songs:

"One of These Days" (from the album "Meddle", 1971): it sounds like being the same version from that album.

"Money": a then new version of this song which was originally recorded and released in their "The Dark Side of the Moon" album from 1973. This new version was recorded in 1981, by David Gilmour playing all the instruments. The reason given for this new recording was for copyright reasons in the U.S. Apparently Capitol Records didn't want to license the track to Columbia Records. But "One of These Days" also was originally released by Capitol in the U.S....so? Maybe the real reason was to give to the fans a new "rare" track to buy this compilation album (a marketing trick, maybe), and with Wright being out of the band by then and with the internal tensions between the rest of the musicians Gilmour took the task to record a new version of the song alone, with only Dick Parry appearing again on sax solos.This new version has the same sound effects from the original version. But it is clear for me that Gilmour, while still being a very good guitarist and lead singer, couldn't play the drums as well as Nick Mason or the keyboards as well as Rick Wright. So, this new version is not as good as the original version, in my opinion.

"Sheep" (from the album "Animals", 1977): it sounds like being the same version from that album.

"Shine on You Crazy Diamond" (from the "Wish You Were Here" album, 1975): shows several edits which are very clear for the listener. It sounds well, anyway, for a compilation album like this.

"Wish You Were Here", from the album of the same title, 1975: with also some edits done for this compilation album, it also sounds well.

"Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2": it also sounds like being the same version from "The Wall" album from 1979, but also with some different edits.

Maybe with the passing of time this compilation now could be considered as not as relevant as it maybe was in 1981. But the selection of songs is not bad, and if some of the most dedicated fans of the band still want to listen to some different edits of these songs or to the then new version of "Money", it maybe could work very well for them. It is maybe a good "sampler" of some songs of the band from the seventies. The album as a whole sounds well despite the songs were taken out of context from the original albums. It was done in a good way, and it is a good compilation from that period of the band.

It Would Be So Nice

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

3 stars This is the first single that the band recorded after Syd Barrett left the band. It was released in April 1968.

In Side One, there is "It Would Be So Nice", composed and sung by Rick Wright. A song that almost nobody liked in the band, with Roger Waters and Nick Mason saying very bad things about it years later. A very Pop song with some Psychedelic influences, similar in style to some of the songs that Barrett wrote for the band like "See Emily Play". Not bad as I expected it to be after reading Waters' and Mason's commentaries about it. It sounds like the band was trying too hard to sound like some of the songs that they released while Barrett was still in the band. Wright sang it well, and it also shows some influences from other bands like THE MOVE. If the band as a whole didn't like "It Would Be So Nice", why they decided to record the song to release it on the Side One of a single? I don't know if the band was trying to please their record label trying to sound as they previously sounded with Barrett.

In the Side Two, there is "Julia Dream", composed by Waters. A good Psychedelic song with good sound effects and a mellotron, and sung by David Gilmour (the first song that he recorded as lead singer with the band). I first listened to this song in 1976 in their "Relics" compilation album.

A Nice Pair
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

4 stars A 2- LP compilation with PINK FLOYD's first two studio albums. It was released in December 1973, the same year on which the band (In March) also released their most successful album (until then) titled "The Dark Side of the Moon". Like the "Yesterdays" compilation from YES from 1975, this 2-LP set compilation album from PINK FLOYD was maybe released to try to have more new fans of the music of the band, trying to attract the new listeners to their early albums. I never bought this "A Nice Pair" 2- LP set, but I have listened to both albums with their individual original cover designs. But I like a lot the gatefold cover design of this "A Nice Pair" compilation, which was designed by Hipgnosis. I think that it was one of the best cover designs that they did for the band and also one of their best cover designs overall.

The first LP in this 2 LP set is "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn", their first album, which was originally released in August 1967, with the original line-up (Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright). An album dominated by Syd Barrett's songwriting and singing (with only two tracks being composed by all the members of the band, "Pow R. Toc H." and "Interstellar Overdrive"), very Psychedelic. It also sounds a bit "primitive", with not a very good production and recording. It seems that producer Noman Smith still had some problems then to try to understand better the music and the ideas of the band in their first album. But the best songs in this album for my taste are "Astronomy Domine" and "Bike". But this first album as a whole is not one of my favorites from the band.

The second LP in this compilation is their second album titled "A Saucerful of Secrets", which was originally released in June 1968. It is better than their first album, in my opinion. With the personal and mental health problems from Syd Barrett, this album was recorded during a problematic time for the band, with them trying to survive as a band without their main songwriter and leader. So, they invited David Gilmour to first assist them to play the guitar in some concerts, with Barrett still in the band, and later to finally replace him on guitar and vocals in concerts and in their singles and albums. First, the band wanted to keep Barrett in the band, still hoping for him to recover. But finally it didn't happen, and Barrett had to leave the band, with him still appearing in three songs in this second album ("Remember a Day", "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun", and in his own song, "Jugband Blues"). The band had a five musicians' line-up for a very brief time in early 1968 (with some photos from this period in existence) before they realized that Barrett could not function as musician, songwriter, lead singer and leader in the band anymore. Wright and Waters tried to replace him as songwriters and lead singers, and they had success, in my opinion. This album is still very Psychedelic, but much better recorded and produced by Norman Smith. My favorite songs from this album are "Remember a Day" (originally recorded for their first album) and "See-Saw", with both songs being composed and sung by Wright.

A good compilation album which never was released on CD (as long as I know). With both albums being individually available on CD with their original covers since a long time ago, maybe "A Nice Pair" is now more remembered for the cover design than for anyhing else, I think. A very collectable gatefold cover. But maybe it is also remembered as an historical item for the most dedicated fans of the band.

Meddle
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Magnum Vaeltaja

2 stars The first of the generally-regarded Pink Floyd classics, "Meddle" is an album that will undoubtedly entice Pink Floyd's fanbase. But like its successor, Dark Side of The Moon, it leaves little of interest to other demographics.

Unlike about 99.999% of reviewers here, I firmly believe that side one is superior to side two. The album's first side starts with "One of These Days", an exhilarating but compositionally-lacking uptempo number. The next few selections are all slower, more mellow songs. "Pillow of Winds" is the album highlight, with its beautiful lyrics and instrumental harmonies. Side two contains little more than the endless, noodling "Echoes", a low-tier prog epic at best. There are few songs out there that match "Echoes'" sheer low density of musical ideas. The song is perfectly fine if you just want to zone out for half an hour but if you want more than just background music, look elsewhere.

I will give this album 2 stars, not because I think it's bad, but because it really is a fans-only album. For Pink Floyd fan's, this is a must-have as it is an archetypal, representative piece of their discography. For the broader prog fan base, however, this is one that wouldn't be missed.

Review by Quinino

5 stars My ALL-TIME Greatest #20

Everything has already been said about this iconic album, one of the most revered in the world, not only among us progheads. What the world doesn't know is that this was the first album I ever bought, with my pocket money at the age of fifteen, the LP that came with the posters and two stickers, what a luxury in those days.
How can anyone escape the powerful memories of young age, original soundtrack included ? (Who wants to?)

Global Appraisal

This record sounded extremely modern and innovative in 1973 and still today hasn't aged a bit; The production is credited to PF but is generally accepted the important role of Alan Parsons as engineer and not forgetting the less known intervention of the producer Chris Thomas in mixing duties and more.

Essential, influential, stupendous... I spare you the duplication of all the adjectives that have been applied, and sincerely, don't feel able to add anything new, just to share my appreciation.

Goodies

The most advanced recording techniques of the time, the sonic experimentation by all members of the band, the extensive use of synthesizers (VCS3 and Synthi A) and tape loops, all contributed to the final result of what can be heard as an adventurous and nearly perfect album - Outstanding !

Pink Floyd 1965 - Their First Recordings

Review by Glubluk

3 stars Well, well, it's not often that you actually get to hear stuff of legend. Songs that were known by title only, whose very existence was uncertain, are suddenly (indeed) made available to the public by a band notorious for their complete unwillingness to open the vaults. Undoubtedly, this is a historical event, but is it a musical event as well?

Strangely enough, it is, to an extent. No-one in their right mind would claim that these songs are more that what they appear to be: tentative recordings made by a band in their formative stages. This alone, however, does not make them bad music. Generic, yes, but not bad. What we have here are rhythm'n'blues-based songs that reflect the spirit of the music scene of the mid-60's more than the true identity of the band. "Double O Bo" and "Remember Me" are the best examples of songs that stick to the r'n'b formula, not really trying to be anything else.

Is there NO Pink Floyd in the music, then? There is, but you need to listen carefully to actually spot it. First of all, the two tracks already known from bootlegs, "Lucy Leave" and "I'm a King Bee" contain some typical 'Barrettisms': in the way they are sung (especially "Lucy") and in some guitar licks ("King Bee"). The unusual slide bass on the latter is also a harbinger of more 'out there' things to come. "Butterfly" might be a generic r'n'b song as well, but the lyrics put it into the slightly disturbing territory (Fowles' "The Collector" and Steven Wilson's "Index" come to mind).

The most revelatory of the bunch, however, is "Walk with Me Sydney". This Waters-penned 'novelty song' is as hilarious as it is demented and shows that Barrett might not actually have been the sole genius behind the psychedelic Pink Floyd of 1966-68 that he is generally accepted as. The tracks suggest that he was indeed the prolific songwriter, but the bizarre elements in later songs might actually have come from the rest of the band, as the guitars are in fact the least psychedelic element on these tracks and both the four Barrett tracks here and his output from solo albums show how much he was immersed in the blues and rhythm'n'blues.

I can't imagine this being of interest to anyone else but fans and historians, but still the music is enjoyable and catchy enough to warrant at least a cursory listen.

Footnote: I wonder who plays bass and harmonica on "I'm a King Bee" and who signs "Remember Me".

Review by Naida Regent

5 stars Listen! If the stars are lit, means... They glow too much brightly for this world. Unfortunately, genuine Psychedelic Man created a few, but his works are immortal. Good works characterized by unique transparent sound which is, however, typical for just English artists and groups. It is transparent like an air of their motherland, inhaling by an instrument and blown into our ears. Some compositions are English tales-phantasms (Matilda Mother, The Gnome, Scarecrow), but the main act is the great cosmic journey of this Star Gentleman. He gives the light of these stars us and his band which went on a more distant earthly journey, whereas he remained on the other side of the moon. My rate is not arbitrary. I rate 5 for novelty of born (not in sufferings) transparent sound and cosmic ethereal vocal. The only band whose stuff characterized by such combination is Yes. But it is the other story.

2 stars Pink Floyd before Pink Floyd

Before their "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn",released in 1967, Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rado Klose, Richard Wright,Nick Mason & Juliette Gale (choruses on one track), or as we all know as PINK FLOYD, recorded this untitled material which is now presented as their first recording. It was originally released as a limited edition set of two 7" vinyl records and consists now of 6 tracks. Five original songs by Barrett and Waters, and one Slim Harpo cover ("I'm a King Bee").

As for the music itself, it shows clearly the sign of the times in its songwriting. Playing alongside mainstream and not wanting to sound "squarish", one can easily sense the inevitable rhythm and blues influence, which in those days represented an underground and contagious musical freedom for almost all Rock n' Rollers down in the UK.

Because of the same, now in 2015, this will hardly sound as daring as it sounded back then. The Yardbird's had already started this kind of experimental and electronic/acoustic Rock music based on rhythm and blues songwriting, as the Rolling Stones who were also traveling these roads.

To cut it short, it would have taken a real great fortune teller to foretell the brilliant future that this band will eventually achieve, by just listening to this highly collectible (unimpressive) EP for future hard core Floyd fans.

**2 by the book "Collectors/fans only" PA stars.

Review by VianaProghead

5 stars Review N 37

For the vast majority of the progressive rock fans, Pink Floyd can be considered as one of the best and most recognized bands in the progressive rock movement from the 70's, together with Yes and Genesis. We can even consider that those bands were, in a certain way, practically the founders and the most creative of the progressive rock music. They are probably also the bands that most have influenced the progressive groups, until today.

This is my third review of a Pink Floyd's album. "Animals" belongs to the famous trilogy of the greatest masterpieces of the band, starting with their eighth studio album "The Dark Side Of The Moon" released in 1973, followed by their ninth studio album "Which You Were Here" released in 1975 and ending with "Animals", their tenth studio album released in 1977. It was recorded at the band's studio, the Britannia Row Studios, in London, and was released by Harvest Records in the UK and by Columbia Records in the USA. With the exception of "Dogs", which was co-written with David Gilmour, all the five tracks on the album were written by Roger Waters. Curiously, "Animals" was the band's first album not to include a writing credit by Richard Wright. Those were probably, the early signs of discord inside the group, which several years later would culminate with Wright leaving the band, due to problems with Waters.

Of all the classic Pink Floyd albums, "Animals" is the strangest and darkest of all. It's a conceptual album, based on the George Orwell's political fable the "Animal Farm", where various groups in the society are represented as animals. The dogs represent the law, the pigs represent the leaders and the sheep represent the people. On the album, Waters equal the humans to each of those three animals' species. The dogs represent the megalomaniacal businessmen that end up being dragged into what they created. The pigs represent the corrupt politicians and also the moralists. The sheep represent those who don't fit into these two categories, which without thinking blindly follow a leader. Despite the Orwell's novel is focused on the Stalinist communism, the album is a critic to the worst aspects of the capitalism.

"Animals" has five tracks. The first track "Pigs On The Wing" is divided in two parts, and is the smallest track on the album. "Pigs On The Wing (Part 1)" opens de album and has only 1:25 minutes long and "Pigs On The Wing (Part 2)" closes de album and has precisely the same time. "Pigs On The Wing" is a love song written by Waters for his wife, Caroline, at the time. The message of this song is that when two people love each other, they can protect themselves from the evils of the world, referred on the other three songs. Waters refers to himself as a dog in the second part of the song. Musically, the song is simply constructed and features no instrumentation besides an acoustic guitar played by him. The second track "Dogs" is the lengthiest song on the album. Gilmour and Waters share vocal duties on the song. Gilmour sings the majority of the song, but Waters sings the last two verses. During the theme, we can hear the Wright's synthesizer solo and the sounds of dogs barking, on the back. Gilmour made brilliant mixes, with acoustic and electric guitars, together. The third track "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" is the heaviest track on the album and is a song more in the rock vein. It's the most aggressive song on the album and has very aggressive political lyrics, too. Halfway through the song, Gilmour uses a "Heil Talk Box" on the guitar solo, to mimic the sound of the pigs. The fourth track "Sheep" is probably my favourite song on the album. It has a delightful Wright's keyboard work, while Waters sings and plays rhythm guitar and Gilmour plays an outstanding bass guitar brilliantly on a simply and amazing way. For a Pink Floyd's album which is so clearly dominated by Waters, the Gilmour's guitars dominate throughout the album, but we have also the Wright's keyboards rarely rising above a mood-setting on the background.

Conclusion: For many of you, "Animals" is probably the last album released by Pink Floyd that can achieve the status of a masterpiece. Sincerely, I don't completely agree with that point of view. I really think that we can't forget their famous eleventh studio album "The Wall", released in 1979 despite is probably an album less progressive than their three previous studio works. In any case and in my humble opinion, "Animals" is one of the three best albums of the group, and one of the best albums ever made, in any time, by any band. Anyway and undoubtedly, "Animals" is one of the Pink Floyd's lesser known albums and is for sure the less known album of their trilogy. Of course it's not as easily accessible as "The Dark Side Of The Moon", it's for sure less personal than "Wish You Were Here" and it has a less interesting story and less familiar songs than "The Wall". It's shorter than most of the Pink Floyd's albums, too. But it's surely a great Pink Floyd album and that can be considered a true landmark in the progressive rock music. By the way, please read "Animal Farm", if you didn't read it before. It's a great novel which never gets old with the years.
