“Speak to Me”, Assorted Lunatics! 

By Staff


“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. In the case of Pink Floyd, you can probably substitute “a thousand miles” with “rock immortality” seeing as they took their first step of that old Chinese proverb 45 years ago.

January 20, 1972 was the night Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Mick Mason and Rick Wright played live the first tunes of a new album they were at the time calling “Eclipse”.

Or I should probably say ‘tried to play’ as their set was fraught with technical issues.

‘Eclipse’ then changed to ‘A Piece for Assorted Lunatics’ and roughly a year later, would come to be known as, of course, “Dark Side of the Moon”, only of the most legendary rock albums of all time.
