Just think about a way to make it sound more a part of a Beatles forum even though it is in the ATN section.

I really don't think that's necessary.

In the meantime, 'Echoes' is so beautiful and utterly perfect that it makes my soul ache. I think if I stopped listening to Pink Floyd, my soul would wither and die.

Have any Pinky Fabs heard this live concert from 1970? I used to have the boot but this seems more like an official release. I think it was recorded at a jazz festival, so Roger is introducing the songs. The very beginning cracks me up  "Good morning (a few laughs from the crowd),this is called Astronomy Domine". I don't think I've ever heard anyone actually say those words out loud before ahdn_ringo_09

Tracklist

Astronomy Domine 00:00

Fat Old Sun 10:27

Adam Heart Mother (band only) 24:55

Cymbaline 43:17

The Embryo 54:56

12 Bar Original 1:08:07

More Blues 1:13:32

Green Is The Color 1:22:54

Careful With That Axe Eugene 1:26:30

If 1:34:17

Adam Heart Mother (with orchestra) 1:38:52

I don't own any albums post The Wall. I used to own The Final Cut and Momentary Lapse of Reason on vinyl (lost them to a flood), but I always considered them inferior to what came before.

Sometimes I consider buying the remaining albums, but I'm not sure.

I bought Echos and that together with The Final Cut is enough, and even that's patchy.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Momentary Lapse is actually pretty good, better than a lot of the early stuff in my opinion. I'd probably place it between OBC and AHM.

I bought the original Pulse CD for my brother-in-law as a Xmas gift in 1995, when there was a big hype about the red LED packaging. What a cool bit of packaging that was! I recall going to sleep on my sister's couch that week, looking up at their CD shelf, and it was like that blinking light was alive - as if that CD was the lone one on that shelf that was trying to communicate with me! Unfortunately, that was the last time I was excited by a post-70s Pink Floyd release in any way. 🙁

@sigh butterfly I'll have to give it a listen. I love grotty old live/alternate Floyd stuff, and can listen to it for hours.

I remember I never knew how to pronounce 'Astronomy Dominé' properly until I heard Roger say it, and then I was like Ohhhh, it's 'Domin-AY'.

Sometimes copying the technique of someone while I'm watching them play helps me to get it. There was one riff I could never quite pull off until I watched this video several times. apple01

I had been talking about Pink Floyd and our awesome road trip to see Roger Waters with some of my aunts and cousins this afternoon (among other favourite musics *ahem*), and lo and behold, when my aunt went out to her car, the first thing she heard was 'Comfortably Numb' on the radio.

Given that that was their last release of new material until 2014, I'd say that's pretty good.

Does anyone know where all the hate for early Pink Floyd comes from - or to be more precise the period between A Saucerful Of Secrets and Meddle? I find it really strange how often things like 'only real hardcore fans endure these early experiments' or 'Atom Heart Mother is a dreadful attempt of a prog album' are said. Maybe, I've got a distorted perspective because I've discovered the albums chronologically but A Saucerful Of Secrets and Umma Gumma have always been real gems to me with their atmospheric, spacey worlds of sounds and noises. And regarding Atom Heart Mother I actually really dig Atom Heart Mother Suite from time to time since it feels like a time travel back to medieval England. The middle three songs are great anyway and Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast, well, it's so silly I can't help liking it.a-hard-days-night-george-9

All in all, if I hadn't been 'warned' about how dreadful early Pink Floyd experiments are, I absolutely wouldn't have noticed that there's something in any way 'wrong' with them.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I think the problem most people have with that era is that they were still searching for their direction post-Syd, and it shows. So unless you are interested in that kind of experimental music and/or getting stoned or unusually open-minded, as you are @Martha, it's probably not going to appeal. There's also the fact that it's really not that well-known, so people are less likely to have fond memories of having heard it on the radio or whatever.

To be honest, even I find Ummagumma a bit of a difficult listen at times. ahdn_george_06

For some, they degrade and dismiss the early years, because they haven’t really listened and can’t be bothered to actually try to enjoy discuss these albums. I guarantee most of what you hear comes from the mouth of those who’ve never heard it. With that being said, I do not like the Atom Heart Mother Suite.

I agree, it's a bit of a curious request. But Joe is fond of sneaking Beatles lyrics into the titles of the subforums, so I can see the appeal of Beatlesque thread titles in ATN topics. With that in mind, I think "Pink Floyd, yellow orange and blue, I love you!" is about the best I can come up with. Probably someone else can do better...

Thanks for your responses @Beatlebug and @sir walter raleigh, you're quite right, of course. In retrospect, it was quite a stupid question for me to ask, I mean, it's clear that the experimental stuff isn't as catchy as, say, the tracks from the Wall and certainly also not as well known. I guess I've just got a distorted perspective because their early experiments were actually the first Pink Floyd music I've discovered. And since it was summer holidays back then, I've literally inhaled the albums from Piper to Meddle all day whereas I've had way less time for all the post Wish You Were Here albums as school had begun again when I had reached them. So, all I'm saying is that the experimental albums are burned into my brain so much that I'm always confused when some articles about Pink Floyds discography treat them as if they were accidents of a long gone past which one would rather like to forget.

And also thanks a lot for the compliment, Silly Girl, this has really made my day!beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Regarding the topic title, I think vonbontee's suggestion is fab! But here's another suggestion, anyway, just because I feel a little goofy today:
