News about the group Pink Floyd

50 years ago, on 29 June 1968 in the UK released album, "a Saucerful of Secrets".

In its "Complete guide to the music of Pink Floyd" Andy Mabbett writes: "By the end of the album, the band was rewarded for constant trade-offs in the form of short pop songs and finally got the opportunity to create something more monumental for future concerts. The result was a 20-minute instrumental, split into four parts, which remained nameless until the first concert version in the album "music from Ummagumma" in 1969 Without a clear idea of where the composers conceived the division of instrumental into separate parts, the following description can only serve as a rough guide. The first part, titled "Something Else", based on microphone recording plate from close range, represents, according to the plan of David Gilmour, prepare for war. "Syncopated Pandemonium" is cut and re-glued the drums nick Mason, which imposed the record of abuse Gilmour with his guitar using a microphone stand is, obviously, depicts the battle itself. In the eighth minute of the composition should be a smooth transition to the "Storm Signal" represents the organ noises, probably the aftereffects of the battle. Finally, the "Celestial Voices" are Requiem — consuming organ and dreamy vocals, any frankly admits, sound great.

This work paved the way for other, possibly structurally more distinct compositions, which, through "Atom Heart Mother" and "Echoes" evolved into "The Dark Side Of The Moon". Suite "A Saucerful of Secrets" played under the name "The Massed Gadgets of Hercules" to record on Bi-Bi-si in June 1968, then recorded for the album "music from Ummagumma" and later performed in the film "Stamping Ground", was part of the standard concert program until September 1972, when caught on video "Live At Pompeii", more to come to pass did not."
