"Obscurred By Clouds" by Pink Floyd (1972)
CLASSIC ALBUM OF THE WEEK
Pink Floyd "Obscurred By Clouds"  1972 (UK)
Pink Floyd was one of the most legendary British bands of the golden age of classic rock, and they recorded many classic albums that were top-selling radio hits. But this week's CAOTW came out right before their massive success began. Originally, they were a very psychedelic pop group under the leadership of founding member Syd Barrett, but he left before their second album came out. For their next phase, they became a progressive space rock band that attracted a cult audience, mostly on college campuses (half of their 1969 album was recorded live at a college gig). They also did several movie soundtracks during this period, the last of which was for Barbet Schroeder's film La Valle, released as the album Obscurred By Clouds. Although there were a couple "radio-friendly rock songs" on their previous record Meddle, OBC is chock full of well-crafted tunes that coulda been hits and is perhaps the most overlooked Pink Floyd album.
