ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The next album released by Britain’s Pink Floyd came out on May 04, 1971: “Relics: A Bizarre Collection of Antiques and Curios.” This effort is sort of a ‘best of’ compilation in that it contains 16 tracks, culled from the band’s first 2-3 albums as well as some of the earliest singles that feature original leader and founding member, Syd Barrett. This is well worth adding to your growing collection as the music harkens back to a time when everyone was tripping and the grooving was good. We hope you will seek this phenomenal album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of music the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day recommends to its following…you will be glad you did.
