Pink floyd ummagumma selections from the 2 disc set

Pink Floyd was an English rock band who earned recognition for its psychedelic music in the late 1960s, and as it evolved in the 1970s, for progressive rock music. Pink Floyd's work is marked by the use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative album cover art, and elaborate live shows.

The studio album came as a result of Richard Wright wanting to make "real music", where each of the four group members (in order: Wright, Roger Waters , David Gilmour and Nick Mason ) had half an LP side each to create a solo work without involvement from the others. [10] Wright's contribution, "Sysyphus", was named after a character in Greek mythology , usually spelled " Sisyphus ", [12] and contained a combination of various keyboards, including piano and mellotron . Although initially enthusiastic about making a solo contribution, [13] Wright later described it as "pretentious". [10] Waters' " Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict " contained a variety of vocal [14] and percussion effects treated at various speeds, both forwards and backwards, and was influenced by Ron Geesin , [14] who would later collaborate with both Waters and Pink Floyd. Waters' other contribution " Grantchester Meadows " was a more pastoral acoustic offering and was usually played as an opening to concerts over 1969. [15] Gilmour has since stated he was apprehensive about creating a solo work, and admits he "went into a studio and started waffling about, tacking bits and pieces together", [16] although part one of " The Narrow Way " had already been performed as "Baby Blue Shuffle in D Major" in a BBC radio session in December 1968. [17] Gilmour said he "just bullshitted" through the piece. [10] He asked Waters to write some lyrics for his compositions, but he refused to do so. [10] Mason's three-part " The Grand Vizier's Garden Party " featured his then wife, Lindy, playing flute, [14] and Mason playing a seven-minute drum solo as part two of the piece. [10]
