ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Pink Floyd released their next historic, multi-disc effort, the acclaimed “Dramatization 1969” that features music, some of which has heretofore been unheard. The group worked on two themes, one about a man and the other about a journey and covered the span of 24 hours. Although never released in this form back in the day, it demonstrates that the band was working towards longer thematic pieces such as “Animals,” “The Wall,” and “The Final Cut.” We hope you will seek this four-disc delight out at whatever site it is you do for the absolute best in rock music. If you are a fan of the band, you will enjoy this $42 collection. We thank you.
