The first progressive tracks of Pink Floyd

'Atom Heart Mother' shows the changes in style that the band suffered.

The year 1970 was packed with concerts for Pink Floyd. Even so, they had time to compose and publish their fifth work, Atom Heart Mother. It is considered one of its transition discs, as the band begins to shake the most exacerbated dream experimentation to get closer to referenced sounds. The album is the fourth installment of the Pink Floyd collection, which arrives on Sunday at the kiosks with, and is also available on the Collections page.

Pink Floyd began the decade with a tour of the United Kingdom and another tour of France. In the report they offered an unpublished song, which would later be Atom Heart Mother. It was customary for the band to play songs in their concerts they were still working on; In fact, until the album was released in October, the group came to present part of the album with the name they had originally thought for him: The Amazing Pudding.

Near the launch this title did not convince them and they went to the press of the day for inspiration. A report in the London newspaper Evening Standard, which talked about a pregnant woman who had a pacemaker implanted, gave them the idea.

The album had a cow cover image. The initial idea had been to convey simplicity, a rather flat image, fleeing from the more complex covers that they had so far bet on - and they would continue betting on later works. In the middle of the photo shoot in a field Lulubelle III, which was called the cow, appeared and became the most famous vault of rock. Following the original objective and a trend that was imposed in the early 70's, the cover did not show the name of the group and inside it could not find photos of its members.
