Pink Floyd's The Piper at the Gates of Dawn 33 1/3

Author(s): John Cavanagh

Music | 33 1/3

Part of the 33 1/3 series- great books on epic albums of our times. Through a series of interviews with a wide range of people connected to Pink Floyd in their earliest days (including Nick Mason, Peter Jenner, Jenny Fabian, Storm Thorgerson, Duggie Fields and Peter Whitehead), John Cavanagh paints a vivid picture of how this remarkable debut album was created. He brings to life the stories behind each track, as well as Pink Floyd's groundbreaking live performances of the time. 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is a wondrous creation often seen through the distorted view of later events. These things have served to overshadow the achievement of The Pink Floyd on their debut album: an outstanding group performance; a milestone in record production; and something made in much happier circumstances than I had expected to find This is NOT another book about "mad Syd". This, instead, is a celebration of a moment when everything seemed possible, when creative worlds and forces converged, when an album spoke with an entirely new voice. "Such music I never dreamed of," as Rat said to Mole.' About the Author: John Cavanagh is a broadcaster and musician who has presented shows on several BBC Radio networks, and records under the name Phosphene. He owns a Farfisa Compact Duo organ which was used by Pink Floyd on their early recordings
