    One of the rare times Rick used a mellotron. Don't think he used one again after "Atom Heart Mother".

    Yeah the live versions own. They are a bit 'harder' and the drums turn it into a beast. The beautiful section at the end is just a bunch of chords. Grab your guitar and bust it.

    It amazes me how many Pink Floyd fans don't know this song, for me its easily in the top 5 of their most psychedelic songs.

    Avant-garde masterpiece. When I was a kid I had this song all figured out, how it's about an alien spaceship landing in a desert. :)

    The organ part gets to me. My father was born in 1940 and learned to play organ, he mostly plays church music but it's exactly what an organist in the Floyd's day would have been exposed to. He is currently 73 years old, has had many close encounters with death by accident or illness and as with everyone it's only a matter of time. This song makes me want to record one of his organ pieces that I've taken for granted my whole life; maybe even to use at the funeral. Usually I only think in this mode when I'm on mushrooms but at this time I'm just high on Pink Floyd. Legendary, eternal, psychedelic. How fitting to record a version of it in a ruined theater in Pompeii.

    Why is this no. 84 on the Pink Floyd charts?

    Live at Pompeii version is basically post-rock almost two decades early.
