Opinion

From Library Staff

Pink Floyd's first album is also one of their finest. And to think is was recorded at the same time, and one room over, from where the Beatles were recording Sgt. Peppers!

The film "More" (1969) follows two beautiful young people into heroin addiction on the sun-baked rocks of Ibiza. The soundtrack, performed by Pink Floyd, is a hypnotic mix of David Gilmour's delicate, pastoral melodies ("Green is the Colour", "Cymbaline"), and the spacious progressive rock that would dominate their next few years. This era - post-Syd Barrett/pre-"Dark Side of the Moon" - is my favorite Floyd.

1967's "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" is the one that started it all for Pink Floyd, back in the early days when bassist Roger Waters, keyboardist Richard Wright & drummer Nick Mason were led by the genius, but doomed singer/guitarist Syd Barrett. Psychedelic rock doesn't get much more trippier than "Piper," a totally far-out collection of avant-garde space rock, songs about gnomes and scarecrows, off-the-wall production and sound effects, and superb performances by a tight British art-rock band that were destined to become rock legends.
