1965 - The First Recordings

Postby Vegetable Layne » Sun Jan 31, 2016 6:41 am

Anyone heard about this? I just stumbled on it on wikipedia - apparently, a 1000 vinyl copies of the Bob Klose incarnation of Floyd had come out, and it included the well-known-as-bootlegs Lucy Leave and I'm a King Bee.

I haven't heard much about it. Is it an official compilation or a bootleg itself?

Its official, apparently. They released enough copies so the Pink Floyd company would retain the rights to these songs. I wonder if they'll release them in a proper form.

Personally, I'd just take those and the first three singles (sans Scarecrow) and make one CD/LP out of them. A pseudo-second Barret Floyd album, ya know?

It was issued secretly. Only in order to refresh the copyright. Nick Mason said that a more widespread release will come this year or next. I'd guess that means it'll be on CD and download.

Neato. :mrgreen: I hope they get around to putting out the full thirty-minute "Autumn '68" concerto while they're at it. We may never get Rick's third album (a topic I thoroughly investigated in another thread), but that organ piece is out there, and I need it in my life.

Yes. It's a good opportunity to re-release their early stuff on 7" like The Who have done with all their singles.

Has anyone tried, as an exercize, to make an "album" of these first recordings and the "First Three Singles" (mentally, that is)? As if it were an album that came out shortly after Piper, or just before it.

Here's my take on it. Pink Floyd:

1. Arnold Layne
2. Lucy Leave
3. Double O Bo
4. Apples and Oranges
5. Walk With Me Sydney
6. Candy and a Currant Bun
7. Butterfly
8. I'm A King Bee
9. Remember Me
10. Paint Box
11. See Emily Play

I'd add Scream Thu Last Scream somewhere in there... But that's just me.
