InfoEdit

  • The album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
  • It reached #9 in the UK charts, and this is the only Pink Floyd album not to chart in the US.
  • This is the only non-compilation album on which all five band members appear.
  • Due to his declining mental state, this was the last Pink Floyd album Syd Barrett worked on.
  • The album artwork is a jumbled mess of pictures, including a planet vortex taken from a Marvel Comic, Dr. Strange from the same comic, and what appears to be St. Patrick in the center.
