Product Description

Amazon.ca

Released in 1969, Ummagumma represents where the influence of departed founding songwriter Syd Barrett began to fade in favor of the rather less whimsical and pastoral visions of Roger Waters. Ummagumma is a double album, divided into live and studio halves. The live cuts--"Astronomy Domine," "Careful with That Axe, Eugene," "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun," and "A Saucerful of Secrets"--established the Floyd's predilection for gloomily atmospheric and faintly preposterous sci-fi bombast that would turn them into such a successful stage act. The kindest that may be said of the studio compositions--by and large interminable avant-prog rambles in search of the lost chord--is that they haven't dated terribly well. --Andrew Mueller

5.0 out of 5 stars psychedelic Floyd July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ummagumma features a live album and a studio recording. They are both excellent. The live recording features 'Astronomy Domine', 'Careful With That Axe Eugene', 'Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun and 'A Saucerful of Secrets' all of which can be found on previous albums. The live rendition however is certainly better than the recorded versions of these songs.
The Studio album is quirky to say the least.... the track 'Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict' says it all! It is a cacophony of sounds that on first listening is bizarre and makes you wonder if Floyd were on acid when they performed it. It does, however, grow on you and does fit in well with the rest of the album. 'The Grand Viziers Garden Party' is well worth a listen as is 'Sysphus' but, by far and away the best track, is 'Granchester Meadows'. This beautifully harmonised piece is an indication of the brilliance to follow with 'Dark Side of the Moon'.
This album will probably appeal more to the die-hard fan of Floyd rather than the casual listener but for that die-hard fan it is well worth the money.

Okay as for the history of this album and background notes, lets forget about all that, you can search that on your own time. 1st of all there is not a single Pink Floyd direction, in fact Pink Floyd has been blown all over the place, example, Waters went one way, Syd went his way, Gilmour went his way, Nick mason did Fictitious Sports, Richard had a Wet Dream (really), and tribute copies all over the map. Tracks 7. Narrow Way, Pt. 1 8. Narrow Way, Pt. 2 9. Narrow Way, Pt. 3 have become my favorite song of all time, still 2 decades +++ this track remains my all time best. Grantchester Meadows in my opinion remains the best name of a song in all time. Ummagumma is a masterpiece album and if you never heard this album before, you dropped the ball. Like 99 % cocoa, you may have to adjust and train a hearing bud to understand, but after this small hearing adjustment you will discover that songs on this album will never exist anywhere else. I relate these songs to a mid Summer feeling. When you hear sounds of summer from sitting outside in the country. I not only own a copy of this album, I bought a second back up copy. You may not enjoy all the songs on this album, sure I don't listen to a few, but there are songs on this album that are amazing. Set the control for the heart of the sun, excellent !!!. Pink Floyd gave us a gift with this masterpiece album, take the gift and listen to this album, DO NOT START THE SONG, THEN SKIP IT, each song must be played in full. Most songs are mixes of everything, parts you may think sound wrong, turn into really great listening. The best way to get personal with this album, take a 5 hour drive at night up a quiet Highway and plug this album in.

Thank you for reading my opinion

5.0 out of 5 stars Ummagumma July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to Pink Floyd one lazy Saturday afternoon during a welcome home party for a friend who had just returned from a long vacation in California. He brought some rather interesting things back to our little town in south eastern Pennsylvania, some of which was music. There was one of those old small record players that folded up into a box, sitting in the middle of the room on the floor. Everybody was mulling around not paying particular attention to the music. Then someone put a new LP on the player and walked away. The first sounds off that record stopped me in my tracks! I had never heard anything like that in my life. I sat down in the middle of the floor and listend to the whole studio record. Then I asked our friend "who is that playing?" Of course he said Pink Floyd. The album was Ummagumma.
One month later in Philadelphia, I watched Pink Floyd perform, (as we sat on sawdust, on the floor of the Electric Factory) the entire live side of Ummagumma, they then took a break whilst another band did a set, then the Floyd did a second set that was the incredible on-stage performance of the studio record! To this day, I've never seen anything like that. Price of admission $6.50 each! (those were the days). The Floyd were virtually unknowns in the States at that time. That was the Fall of 1969.
I've been a Floyd fan ever since then. I've never missed any of their concert tours either. I've even met the band.
Therefore, the point of my review is this: Ummagumma was not just some junk that the band put together in the studio, it was in fact, an experiment in music that most people weren't ready for in 1969. Listening to it on the record was intriguing to say the least, seeing it performed live on stage was (in the words of those days) Mind Blowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Floyd's version of half and half creme June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Don't be fooled by the title, this is a great album. Pink Floyd's fourth album Ummagumma was released in November of 1969. This album was the band's first double album and the band's first crack in the U.S. Top 100 on Billboard peaking at #74 in early 1970 and eventually went Gold in early 1974(after the success of Dark Side) and Platinum(in March, 1994). The two disc set is basically two albums in one package. The title of the album is an old Cambridgeshire slang term for a word I cannot use. I first got this album as a Christmas present from my paternal grandmother whom unfortunately passed away on Valentine's Day 2004 on cassette(which was missing three live tracks) in 1987. Then, I acquired on CD in August, 1991 with the full album. The remaster however, is the definitive version. When I listen to it now, I think back to my grandmother whom I loved dearly and will miss(and smile instead of cry to mourn with the music on this album). Back to Ummagumma, the first disc is a live album that the band recorded at a club called Mother's in Birmingham, England and the Manchester College of Commerce in Manchester, England in April and June of 1969 respectively. The first track is a wonderful, extended reading of Astronomy Domine this time featuring keyboardist Rick Wright singing the lower parts Syd originally sang and guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour singing the higher harmonies. The song is a great showpiece for Dave's excellent guitar work and Rick's fantastic keyboard work. Next is Careful With That Axe Eugene(deleted from the original cassette issue) which is more sinister and longer than the hurried studio version with bassist/vocalist Roger Waters' demonic screaming and excellent drumming from drummer Nick Mason and excellent playing by Wright and Gilmour as well.
