Are infinitely more interesting than everything that followed.


Per Alice Cooper.

I don't agree 100% but I understand the sentiment

I'd say they're infinitely more interesting than MOST of what came after

To me Pink Floyd is 3 different bands. The early stuff is some of my favorite Floyd. The first 2 Alice Cooper albums "Pretty's For You" and "Easy Action" are worth a listen also.

Some of my favorite Floyd songs are on those albums. They are not my favorite Pink Floyd albums.

The transition from what they started as to just before the release of DSOTM is the sweet spot for me.

I really got into Floyd before Dark Side came out, and it was Meddle and Obscured By Clouds that hooked me. Still my 2 favorites of theirs.

I actually had Meddle on 8 track tape in 71-72. :lol:

I have Darkside, Meddle, Wish You Were Here, and Animals on 8-Track. A friend gave me them in college. I've always wanted to mount them in a shadow box, but haven't yet.

Saw Alice Cooper in an opening slot a couple years ago.

He killed it. Great showman.

Wood see solo.

I've always considered Saucerful to be very underrated Floyd, just doesn't get discussed all that much. Remember a Day is one of my favorite PF songs. Corporal Clegg and Set the Controls are all great tunes as well. I was happy to read that Set the Controls was Nick Mason's favorite song to play.

Agreed. It's a far-out, interesting album. Definitely an anomaly in their catalogue.

Straight up late 60s psychedelia produced by frank zappa. Definitely worth checking out.

Have you ever found a way to listen to them? The 8-track version of Animals has an alternate version of Pigs on the Wing that's worth listening to at least once.

All those early Floyd albums are masterpieces !

And for all the Alice Cooper haters , check out Billion Dollar Babies or Killer . He made some great music once upon a time ! :banana-guitar:

Troof

I always kept an eye out for that 8 track in my record store days. Dogs, Pigs, and Sheep all had their own track. And the 2 Pigs on the Wing were linked by an electric solo from Gilmour that was not released under any other format.

Like em both really. Two different bands and two different styles.

Pink Floyd is a few tiers above Alice Cooper but the original band rocked hard.

My parents had a working 8 track player when I received them. I recorded that version on cassette tape way back when. Completely forgot about it until you mentioned it

Snowy White did the guitar solo that bridged the two Pigs on a Wings.

He was the backing guitarist on their tours during that time.

He later joined Thin Lizzy - which is how I remember his name.


The 8-track version was actually released on CD back in the '90s on Snowy Whites 'Goldtop: Groups & Sessions '74–'94' album.
(didn't even know about this till a couple years ago - I had always seen it tacked onto bootlegs from the Animals tour and thought it was pulled from an actual 8-track)

Here is the 8-track version on Youtube:
