Hello there Sammy
Thanks for hanging out with me...
Just a song for the season. As far as telegraphing what is next, sorry, I just don't know... my need for distraction is really high just now. Could be anything next...

Thanks for commenting, it is more than a revisit... appreciate your support.
Studio jam into a single? What else from that period retains it's ability to astound?

Hello KC
Good to see ya my friend. Thanks for your support.
I agree on your assessment of the band. Once Barrett was pressured to creates hits, stuff like "Vegetable Man" appear, clearly the darkness consumed him and he determined not to provide content. His audience, his mates, and the company was seeking marketable singles, he just would not, or could not comply...

Hello Mark
Thanks for stopping by, fifty years later the thing is still astounding. It is an ensemble piece, a jam, knitted together in the studio to a radio friendly length.
Completely foreign to the rules of commercial music. Barrett, and the Pink Floyd Sound were unique, none of that anywhere today...

Hello Tim
"Games for May" is the name of the song. The reason it was written and the circumstances of it's appearance are legendary. Barrett is no longer whole after this session according to Pink Floyd personnel, I love the message in the song. Barrett is warning of what it to come...

The acid casualty, mentally impaired Barrett, lost his ability to contribute to the corporate vision of Pink Floyd as darkness overtook him.

Just for fun imagine the 1968 lp "Saucer full of Secrets" with fully developed versions of the unrealized tunes "Scream thy Last Scream", "Vegetable Man", "Reaction in G", "One in a Million" and "In the Beachwoods" added to the content. Barrett was unable, or unwilling to do this work.

In the year and a half or so of his active recording career Barrett invented punk, heavy metal, and prog rock. Yet his most endearing songs are weird pop singles that exist only in the studio and were never played live.

"Oh Magoo...
you've done it again!"

First rate psychedelia. (Timely too...)

That organ makes me think of bands like Ultimate Spinach and the 13th Floor Elevators;etc. Really takes me back. Cool stuff Daug!

Be well bro!

Very interesting, Daug. You really know how prime the imagination pumps! You inspired me to read up a bit about the Games for May concert in 67. It sounds like it was the first concert to use quad sound effects. They had a joystick that would allow the mixer to move sound around dynamically.
This is very cool...

Nice vibe going on
has the psychedelic, 80's feel, if there's such a thing. I'm digging it and it's definitely original... You deliver again and thanks for sharing.

Yes Fergie I have been here since the place opened. In fall 2009, I erased the 60+ tunes I had posted since day one. The community here had changed, becoming hateful and repressive, and I needed to respond appropriately. What happened?... [see more]
