Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

And no-one showed us to the land
And no-one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and something tries
Now starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no-one calls us to move on
And no-one forces down our eyes
No-one speaks and no-one tries
No-one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky

Always and everywhere a good idea, but especially in certain special cases/ places!  A couple weeks ago, I was on my bike, on my way down to jump into Boulder Creek by the old rope-swing at the west end of Eben G. Fine Park when I met an interesting young gal visiting from Houston who was stopped with her rented RedBike on the path, trying to figure out her location on Google. I told her where I was headed, and next thing you know, we were splashing and gasping down in that bracing flowing melted snow, refreshed and baptized and cheering on the tubers going by in the rapids... One thing led to another, and we wound up at Beau Jo's with a Rocky Mtn Pie and tasty microbrews, followed by some Lemon Sweet Skunk, and by darkfall we had ingested the magic fungi from the Celestial Seasonings tea tin on my shelf. Moonrise found us hiking and climbing high up on the mesa, able to see it all as if by daylight, to her surprise, just as I'd told her, with our blown-pupil cats' eyes. We stopped often amid fits of giggling and StarSwoon to nip from a bottle of Woop-Woop Oz Shiraz, and when we came to my favorite secret picnic table, we made a Burnt Offering and sat together mesmerized and immobilized while THIS blared from her iPhone in its entirety... She couldn't believe they'd taken the Right Whale mating call and woven a whole song around it... All night and well into the morning, this and the rest of Floyd — even turned her on to The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, which she loved — kept us way up there in COSMIC MUSIC HEAVEN!
Each & every time, it's a life-affirming thing! Thanks so much, RP!

 
AWESOME  : )
Makes me question worthiness of my other 10s, though I do prefer the original over the remix. The original is Perfection.
This is always a 9 for me. Not just the music, but the sonic dimension of the mix is mesmerizing. It's like a tasty 6 layer cake. It conjures an acid flashback, in a good way. 
And Pink Floyd's concept cover art is always also a 9. 
Maybe we should start an informal 1 - 10 on the covers. 
{#Meditate}{#Notworthy}
This is my desert island song - difficult choice but the very first sonar blip instantly transports me to another place and mindset (normally a smoky campus bedroom of my youth!). This song is why the concept of 11 out of 10 was invented!
All time greatest, rated 10.

Thanks for playing it{#Notworthy} 
ölff points from germany
PF - utterly timeless!
Build upon a robust kernel, which plays a huge part that those Windows are forward compatible.
they took the prog thing to a whole other level ~ awesomeness.. {#Cheers}

Mine too. But Purple Pyramid was also pretty awesome. And let's not forget Window Pane.
Thanks for the Pink Floyd. Greatness!

Of course you realize that thanks to the marvels of modern studio production, Bill can tee up hours and hours and hours of music in minutes. I imagine him spending lots of time in his garden.
My cat always goes crazy when the middle squealing guitar effects start.
Remember, this is the seriously-edited short version of this song.  {#Chillpill}

Could be, I wouldn't doubt if Webber listened to PF.  This predates Phantom by about 20 years.

Been on some long strange trips to Meddle…
Oh yes. This is why Radio Paradise is the theme tune to my family home :)
 
Bill, you're seriously over doing it on the Pink Floyd and Beatles lately.
Trippy then. Trippy now.

I was just another struggling lad at a competitive suburban NJ HS when I heard this.

Helped turn my life to crime.  Well, contempt for authority anyway.  Lets not forget drugs.
Meddle - one of the best albums - wore it out
Now THAT, boys and girls, is Music as Art by Geniuses.

I hope I never, ever meet those of you who gave this a 1.  You are dead to me.  Dead I tell ya!

And I gotta say, that deliciously silken transition from Echoes into Younger Brother's Spinning into Place is pure, unadulterated DJ wizardry.  Another master play by Brother Bill!   {#Notworthy}
 
I pity the finger that PSDs

is anyone else hearing the mixup in song lineup?  I'm hearing an Echo of Echoes !! not that I mind :-)

Some of this sounds quaint and dated.  And then some of it is simply masterful, path breaking, etc., etc.

Simple, moody songs.  

BTW, to save some of you the trouble, I have this rated 10.

Because there is no 11.

Firstly, I highly recommend the beautiful, heartfelt comment by ShortSharShock on May 16 2014, who manages to convey his most subjective impressions on listening to this with such passion that you can follow him anyway.

When I was about 12 years old (1978), Pink Floyd entered my ears and mind effortlessly, thanks to my 9 years older brother who was listening to all the coolest stuff in the world, or so it seemed to me.
The Floyds have been part of my world since then, but I'm still discovering the early years, having started from DSOTM and Wish you were here on.
Every time I hear early Pink Floyd, I'm reminded I have to listen to those albums, as well as of how much of what I loved in the following productions is all here already.

I'm gonna second that. Well put :)
Grooving with a Pict (and some mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups from Trader Joe's). Got milk?
Celebrates the most primal grooves, the most sinister bass, the jamminest Strat, the spaciest keys, and the Mad Spirit of Syd, so well...
The Songs of The Right Whale are nothing short of genius, both in their composure and their use here in this Sonic Masterpiece... 
Bravo! to Radio Paradise for not holding back on the whole Quantum Yin &Yang of it, and for letting the magic speak for itself!

God I love you Bill. If I was born with different sexual proclivities, my lust would go unchecked... But as awkward as that may sound, there is no other word for you, Bill, other than Radio God.

This album remains my favorite of all of the stellar Floyd material, with a particular weakness for Fearless, but this song is something altogether different. It is less a song than a composition. It, and this album, represented a sea change in my appreciation for music and what it could offer.

Over the years, I have compared the different sections of this piece to the passage of a day, or more often the passage of the seasons, with the intense hustle and bustle of the height of summer, slowly progressing into the fall season, with its more considered motions, actions that anticipate the winter that is on the doorstep.

And then moving with assurance into the coldness, the barren reality of short winter days, with trepidation facing each day. Then, brilliantly (in my humble opinion), the first notes of spring. The hope that even a single chord in the major key adds to the gloom that still grips our cold winter days.

And finally spring breaks through in all its glory, and joy and growth and the return to warmth and beauty finally encompass us with passion and forgiveness. Winter has released its seemingly relentless grip and on the other side is all that makes the world the spectacular place that it is, with the splendor that is found in every living thing. Except maybe mosquitos. Yeah, mosquitos have to go.


It probably helps that I grew up in the bitter cold of the Northeast, but anyway, it's and understatement to say that I absolutely love this piece. It's the first time I learned to appreciate and understand minimalism, and there is no where else in the world where you will hear this song on the radio. Auto-programmed stations don't count, they never did. Bill is God. Please, please don't ever stop what you are doing. I own so much of the material that you play, yet I still would be completely and utterly lost.,,

I know DJs often used to play long tracks so that they could have a pee & a cuppa, but you could actually go on holiday while this was on!! Great track btw - thanks.

This song has just never been the same for me since. Well that also cuz I don't get high any more either, but still ........
Now I'm gonna have to try this! {#Dancingbanana_2}
I've got goosebumps again...still my favorite PF track and it takes me back to my misspent youth, reefer madness, VW convertible, hot Australian summers, long nights. Wish I could go back...with the albatross.

Perfection
Trippy if you are on a floyd🐯🐒😌
One of those songs where you only need the first note to instantly know what it is.
Does anyone remember a surfer movie called "Crystal Voyager" that used this track with their innovative "in the wave" photography? The movie was played with Jimi's Maui movie "Rainbow Bridge."
Just listened to this version the other day!!!!!!!
The live version from Gilmours concert in Gdansk was godlike as well..wrights last show :(...
So I saw a documentary on this last week and the "sonar pings" are actually a normal piano run through a Hammond Leslie.
So, I really like this song, but I despise when it's played.  I'm on EST, working to finish a thesis - which means late hours in a research lab on my own.  There is something totally, totally creepy about the humpback whalesque squeals during the ethereal instrumental.  My plea is for you to avoid playing it from midnight to 3 AM PST for the next two weeks - those be the witching hours over here!  lol

Thanks for motivating late night research with all of the other great music!

{#Devil_pimp} (btw, i think it's brilliant that someone created a devil pimp icon)
Meddle was a highly-innovative album in its time, with its eclectic mix of soundscapes and styles. I never had a copy, sadly, but enjoyed it immensely when I visited friends houses to sit in the bedroom listening to LPs. This and Relics contained some of Floyd's most interesting and quirky music. The later stuff was pretty good, too, but 'harder' and cynical (with good reason). The early stuff was delightfully innocent, naive, dare I say 'fluffy'. Thanks for playing this track in full, though I can understand it pissing off some listeners, and can sympathise with them. As Joe Strummer said: F*ckin' long, innit? 8 from the laid-back Nottingham jury.
I prefer the original, but this will do. This is my favorite from PF, and that's saying a lot. Pure genius.
Fuck * Yeah

Andrew Lloyd Weber listened to this? Sounded just like Phantom of the Opera for a minute there.

When that thumping bass kicks in and the organ and guitar shoot to the forefront of the mix - awesome!!

Might just have to go out and purchase this remix - sounds fat and clean. 
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..................{#Notworthy}
truly awesome...{#Clap}
"Phantom of the Opera" is  there!  Thanks for the heads up. 
I saw PF in Jacksonville, Fl. in 1973, accompanied by a British cousin serving aboard the old Ark Royal which toured the east coast.  He and his mate wore their sailor whites, hitchhiked from Mayport to Jax - an expat in a Rolls picked them up.  My  mate and I tried to keep up with a guy who grew up on British beer - big mistake!

It's really neat to scroll through a song that has long been out of the rotation.  Who are all these people?  Where did they run off to?

Go rent Phantom of the Opera tonight.  Scary is right.  Lloyd Weber appropriated a bit of this for his musical.

The best version was when I saw them @ Milwaukee County Stadium in 1976 live. At least, as I remember it. The Mr. Natural was really kickin' in about then.

From what I think was the greatest era of one of the greatest bands ever.  TOO awesome for words.
My heart jumped for joy when I heard the first two notes. And a brilliant brilliant segue from Massive Attack's "Teardrop" ! Been listening to RP for years, but I don't think I've ever caught it here.{#Tongue}
110+ for the original, AND the group!
The ultimate song for a hot summer day or night!  I'll never forget seeing the Live at Pompeii concert at a drive-in back in the late 70s or early 80s and rocking out to the way they jammed to all the ghosts at the old amphitheater, and freaking out at the way the camera cut in to show all the "fossil" people killed in the eruption...all the mouths of statues, frozen in agonized screams...and Gilmour JAMMING that Strat, leaning hard on the whammy bar, and Rick doing everyone the biggest favor with those genius keyboard bits, and Roger getting down good and hard with such sinister bass grooves...and Nick was bashing away in full Floydian frenzy.  THIS WORK IS NOTHING SHORT OF AWESOME! and it's so great to hear it on RP...Thanks, Bill and Rebecca!
meddle - what an album.......always a pleasure to re-live!
 

David Gilmour, Richard Wright - "Echoes" Live-Acoustic Version, from Abbey Road (2008)

"A perfect rendition of a Shepard-Risset glissando at the end. Part of the magic that's "Echoes".
Remembering you always, Richard. We were truly blessed to have you here among us." 

"I always see good videos with a few dislikes, and people will comment that x number of people dont have a clue what they're talking about, but its understandable that the video (whether it be music or not) may not be for the person watching it. But it is unfathomable to me that 11 people could click the unlike button on this video. There must be something seriously wrong with who ever that is, and it scares me that i live on the same planet as people like that."       tff1293

One of PF's greatest tunes. Saw them perform it live in the confines of the tiny Gardens Auditorium in Vancouver in 1973? Quadraphonic sound, no less. How sad that Gilmour & Waters have been unable to reconcile. Oh well, we'll always have Ummagumma. :-)
 
I saw them in 1972 at the Auditorium in Chicago. It was before the release of Dark Side, when the collection had been tentatively entitled "Eclipse." They played it in its entirety to be followed after an intermission by Echoes, One of These Days, Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, and Careful With that Axe Eugene. Maybe the highlight of my life, concert wise.

*EDIT* Holy crap! I googled "pink floyd chicago auditorium 1972" and found out that the concert was April 28, 1972 and, stunningly, THERE'S A TORRENT OF IT!!!

This song changed my life way back then, and I can still feel it in my toes. 

Genuine genius.

But.. this remixed version sounds a bit "different". I don't know what it is, but i prefer the original one.

Did you see live at pompeii?  
(sigh...) Thanks, Bill! :sunny:
It's as good as the sunshine. This is one of the finest works in my personal life-experience.
Coincident - was watching Gilmore Live in the Royal Albert Hall last night where he played the entire tune. Fascinating to see half the audience recognizing the song after the very first "ping" by Richard Wright on his organ - especially since they had not performed this tune live for over 20 years. It's little things like that that makes this a classic.
Gratuitous crap.
Right on! Kick ass
