ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Pink Floyd released its next album, “Meddle,” on November 05, 1971. Although somewhat loose in the flow of music- not based around a central theme- it was a joy to behold with one’s greedy ears. The opening track features what one might consider to be a follow up to the tune, “Careful with that Ax, Eugene,” from a few albums back. Other tunes bear the possibility of AM airplay while side two consists of a lengthy musical exposition into the corners of the creative musical mind. We hope you will seek this amazing album out and consider making it a part of your collection as we believe you will definitely enjoy it. We thank you.
