ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Pink Floyd released their next album, a soundtrack entitled, “Obscured by Clouds,” on June 02, 1972, music for a French film about a primitive tribe living deep within the rainforest. The songs all weave and flow about one another in an acoustic, mostly non-vocal way and could be prep-work for their next album, one that would make them global international rock stars. Still, if you are a completist as we are, you want to own every iota, every musical note, every little tidbit of this band’s amazing work because they are and will always be GREAT. When compared with modern music, there is no way anything produced NOW will ever be as great as the music of 48 years ago. Please, seek it out and add it to your growing collection- you will be so glad you did.
