Sunday’s Soundtrack for Surfing: For my Fiftieth Year on this Rock….From 1970: The Masters of Psychedelic Rock….

(OK, so I was born late in 1970….and I’m just now getting around to this….so it might seem like the math is off…..but it is still my 50th year on this planet so…..)

Without a doubt my one, all-time favorite band (if I had to pick….which I wouldn’t want to….so please don’t make me…..).

Pink Floyd, from a rare double album titled “More Blues”. From a tour they did after producing a soundtrack to the movie “More”, in 1969.

Recorded live at Montreux and Paris Theatre, London in 1970

My favorite era of Pink Floyd’s music.

Don’t get me wrong, I love their later stuff too. After all, my very first CD purchase (as in…when CD’s were still new as well as when I was still new to buying music) was, after all, a limited release of Dark Side of The Moon (arguably one of the greatest albums of all time) pressed on 24 karat gold (I still have it). And I love Animals, Wish You Were Here, The Wall…..

But their early, post-Syd Barret stuff is my favorite. And this is an awesome example of them at their creative peak. Just before Live at Pompeii. Just before Dark Side of the Moon.

Quintessential Psychedelia.

~~~

You know the drill.

Press play.

Go on about your day.

With or without chemicals…

(With music like this, who needs chemicals?)
