I have always enjoyed “space sounding music… And I am guessing that Pink Floyd was the first to do it.. Or do it right… The first record…Piper at the gates of dawn is really a spacey sounding record… Campy too…

It was recorded at the same time as The Beatles Sgt Peppers lonely hearts club band.  In my “hip opinion” it is a better record.

So the space music? Well listen to it… The opening song Astronomy Domine is just about as spacey as it gets…Then right into Intersteller Overdrive… Come on!?!

I heard Roger Waters say one tome that “nobody invented space music” Well, I dunno… His first guitar player Syd was certainly one of the first right? That guy is kinna a trip…  A tortured genius…. But then Syd Barrett was on a whole other level…

Many people I have talked to over the years are into Pink Floyd.. The later stuff… I try to turn them on to the Barrett recordings but many consider it just too freaking “weird”  It is that…. WAY out… In SPACE….

Give it a listen sometime…With an open mind….
