Having only listened to Piper to Ummagumma so far and the really commercial Pink Floyd songs, I have to say I actually prefer some of the early psychedelic stuff, especially Astronomy Domine which, as the first song I heard, I was blown away!

That's great @Thommo! If you dig the early stuff, I can highly recommend watching the movie Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii, they perform some of their early songs in an abandoned, empty amphitheatre in Pompeii and the setting as well as the music, of course, add up to a truly overwhelming psychedelic experience. @Beatlebug has recommended it to me and I'm really glad she did.a-hard-days-night-john-6

But you should probably listen to Echoes first, before you watch it.

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

@Thommo Well, Live At Pompeii is a pretty good introduction to the material, so I don't think it's imperative that you hear the studio recording of 'Echoes' before you see the film. But you should listen to Meddle anyway, along with everything else. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Thanks for spreading the word @Martha. john-lennon-salute_gif

A lot of people attribute all of the early Floyd greatness to Syd, but Rick Wright was commanded the keyboard throughout the entire discography, cranking out classics like Astronomy Domine, Echoes, Shine On, and even Time! As you progress further into the band, you’ll soon see and value him just as much as anybody in Pink Floyd.

^ Yes, Rick Wright was the true master of the Pink Floyd Sound. For that and other reasons, he's kinda my favourite Floyd... that is, when I'm not busy fangirling over David Gilmour because I'm a guitarist and that's what I do. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Apparently Floyd think it's fine to take public domain content, embed it in their product and run around the internet policing it:

Album is easy, The Dark Side Of The Moon.

Song is hard but I'll go with Time.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Favourite Album and track from it; Wish You Were Here. Followed very closely by Animals much darker in content but fantastic in both lyrics and musically. It's so tight a concept album, it all flows together but best track; Pigs (Three Different Ones).

Fearless is a very good, rather underrated/underknown song. Good to see it getting some love. john-lennon-salute_gif

Although I've also been feeling 'Breathe (In The Air)' has been my number one lately. {honourable mentions edited out because I'd be here all day if I started in on them}

I just came here to observe that early Pink Floyd (currently The Early Years: 1969 Dramatis/ation) is really good background music for writing an essay on early human evolution. It's just got a kind of prehistoric primitive feel to it. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif
