Product Description

Product Description

Pink Floyd 2011 Remasters

Amazon.ca

Commissioned as the soundtrack for Barbet Schroeder's 1972 film The Valley, Obscured By Clouds actually holds up rather well on its own terms. The title track is a trippy, cinematic instrumental that features some searing guitar work from David Gilmour, but full-fledged songs like "Free Four" (which sounds like a morbid inversion of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky"), and the folksy "Wot's...Uh the Deal" are the real highlights of the set. Essentially a transitional work, Obscured By Clouds has long been dwarfed by Dark Side of the Moon, the album which came immediately after it. In fact, the funky "Childhood's End" and the ethereal "Burning Bridges" could well be dry runs for the Dark Side tracks "Time" and "Breathe," respectively. In all, it's a priceless snapshot of a band on the verge of immortality. --Dan Epstein

This is Early, Early Material, I am not talking about Pipers Old but certainly older than UmmaGumma If you listen to this CD you can pick up pieces of ideas that the band was playing with at various times in their career. In fact it is kind of interesting to do so you get to learn about the history of the group. At some point in the future I think that it would be interesting for some Documentary maker to construct the history of this most iconic of Rock and Roll bands.

2.When You're In - instrumental, and a good one again
3. Burning Bridges - sounds like something from dark side of the moon, good song
4. The Gold It's In The... - If you want a faster song by pink floyd this is the one. My 2nd fav song on on album
5. Wots...Uh The Deal - MY favorite song ,the lyrics to this are so amazing,this track is some of Pink Floyds best work.
6. Mudmen -instrumental, very cool
7. Childhood's End - this is another track thats sounds like it's from dark side of the moon.
8. Free Four - this is 3rd favorite song, really good song, good lyrics
9. Stay - a good song

Pink Floyd released their eighth album(overall) Obscured by Clouds in June of 1972. The album was a soundtrack to the French film La Vallee, which was directed by Barbet Schroder. OBC was the band's second film soundtrack for Schroder, their first was the 1969 movie More. I first heard and obtained a copy of this album when I was 11 years old on cassette and I now have the remaster on CD and the sound on the remaster is like night and day(it buries the cassette and original CD). This album was the album released before 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon and was the band's first ever US Top 50 disc peaking at a respectable #46 and eventually went Gold(in 1994). The album was produced by Pink Floyd themselves and was recorded in a week at the Chateau D'herouville(a/k/a the Honky Chateau as Elton John called it) in France in late February of 1972. The album kicks off with the title cut(featuring excellent synth work from both keyboardist Rick Wright and bassist/vocalist Roger Waters and slide guitar from guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour) which then segues into When You're In(with excellent drumming from drummer Nick Mason). Those two tracks were staples of Floyd shows in 1973 on the Dark Side tour. Burning Bridges follows and has a great vocal from Gilmour and Wright and is a great tune. The Gold It's In The... is a hard rocker with some great guitar work from Gilmour. Wots...Uh the Deal follows and is a great song with excellent keyboard work from Wright and great vocals and guitar work from Gilmour. Next is an instrumental version of Burning Bridges entitled Mudmen which is in a different tempo than Burning Bridges. Side two kicked off with Childhood's End(one of Gilmour's best songs ever).Read more ›

Ita a shame that this cd never got any airplay at all because most of the songs are very radio accesible . track 1 obscured by clouds is kind of a cool moody piece that Waters describes in the pompeii movie as a "bad cut" Burning Bridges is a great song with Wright and Gilmour trading vocals and some good harmonies. The gold its in the.. is a great pop rock tune unlike anything they ever did. Also had a great 2 minute fade out guitar solo. Wots uh the deal is one of my all time favorite Floyd songs. It has a great mood and should have been a radio hit.Mudmen is basically Burning Bridges but instrumental and is also a great song. Childhoods End is a perfect Gilmour song and stands up with anything he ever wrote. Great rock song. Free Four is probably the most familiar cut on here and is a great pop song with heavy lyrics. Stay is a great Wright song and sounds very 70s. Overall this is a must for any Floyd fan that may be scared to buy anything pre Dark Side. When i was in high school in the 80s this was all I listened to and i never got sick of it.Its definately in the top 3 Floyd albums of all time.

During the period after Syd Barrett's departure, Pink Floyd indulged in a good deal of experimentation in an attempt to find its voice now that its principal songwriter and creative light was no longer among them. It was in these years (1968-1972) that Roger Waters, with significant contributions from David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason, wrote songs and incidental music for a couple of Frecn films. Though the soundtrack albums from these films, "More" and "Obscured by Clouds" have generally not been held in high regard by critics, they both contain som excellent music - both instrumental music and songs.
"Obscured by Clouds" in particular is a fine collection of songs, including "Burning Bridges", "Childhood's End", Waters' "Free Four", a happy tune about growing old and decrepit, and Wright's "Stay", a pretty song about a one-night stand.
While not one of their standout albums, "Obscured by Clouds is definitely worth a listen. It's another illustration that Pink was a talented enough band to lose a great songwriter and musician like Syd Barrett and still make some of the finest music around.
