Posted by sulphurfury on Sep 29, 2007
Pink Floyd's debut album in 1967 captured their raw live sound in the studio masterfully. Out this month is a 2CD 40th Anniversary Edition, featuring two different mixes, one on each disc, in mono and stereo. It was originally mixed in mono, which is the perfect and intended way to hear this album. One little known fact is that the man behind the album, Norman Smith, was an uncredited sound engineer in an already coveted position, and he left that position by talking his way into producing this new band, only if he were promoted to their producer. In his experience he knew if they were signed, he was the only one who could capture their sound in the studio. You need to hear this album in mono. Find out why and a lot more about some amazing rock history tied-in behind Pink Floyd's mind-blowing, far-out first album, in this intense review of the new Pink Floyd - "Piper At The Gates Of Dawn - (40th Anniversary Edition)" 2CD set.
