Hey guys, I don't know if this topic has an own thread already (couldn't find one), so I made this for everyone who'd still like to discuss how an imaginary 2nd Pink Floyd album would look like if David Gilmour wasn't around and Syd Barrett contributed on ALL songs (or in other words: if the band and Norman Smith hadn't vetoed so much during that time). I like the way people speculating about what songs would be included if there wasn't any trouble with Syd... The official release, 'A Saucerful Of Secrets', includes at least three songs where Syd was definitely featured: 'Remember A Day', 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun' and 'Jugband Blues'. Rumours went round that he also could've played on 'Corporal Clegg'. The band's third single 'Apples And Oranges' (and its b-side 'Paint Box') were also mixed in stereo and, as I heard, were probably planned being part of the second album. Along with other songs written by Syd: 'Vegetable Man', 'Scream Thy Last Scream' and 'In The Beechwoods'. Roughly said, any material recorded at De Lane Lea and Abbey Road from mid till late 1967 can be included in the album. We're welcoming the Early Years box set very soon. And we have heard some snippets of its content already. When that certain excerpt of 'In The Beechwoods' was played (during the Craig Bailey radio show Creation - The Early Years Of Pink Floyd incl. Nick Mason interview) it just blew me away already. It has an awesome beginning and to me it would be a great album opener. Also, I loved the 2010 mix of 'Jugband Blues' which has a pretty good new stereo mix. So, while I listened to the show my idea of creating an own version of the second album just came up (again). Okay, here's my creation. (I don't have a name for this album, yet. Maybe this will come up after the box set arrives and when I'll make the compiling audiowise then) This is just a rough idea, might change later. Some tracks can be linked together, means that there don't need to be many silent seconds between the songs. For example, when the laughter in 'Vegetable Man' ends, the guitar of 'Apples And Oranges' will come in rapidly. Or the noises in the endpart of 'Scream Thy Last Scream' will get a crossfade with 'Jugband Blues'. Also, I chose two 'John Latham' snippets (though we don't know yet how this will sound) as an improvisation part of the album, similar built like The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn. Side 1 01 In The Beechwoods 02 Vegetable Man 03 Apples And Oranges 04 Remember A Day 05 Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun Side 2 01 Paint Box 02 Latham Pt.1 03 Latham Pt.2 04 Scream Thy Last Scream 05 Jugband Blues Source of the tracks 'In The Beechwoods', 'Vegetable Man', 'Scream Thy Last Scream' and 'Jugband Blues' will be the 2010 mixes which are included in the Early Years box set. On Side 2 the tracks 'Latham Pt.1' and 'Latham Pt.2' will be self chosen passages of the 'John Latham' recording material which is also included in the box set. Feel free to write your own 'fictional second album' creations! For the guys who already made some creations: will you update your own tracklist maybe after you get the box set? And how would you name a second full album from the Syd-era?
