Atom Heart Mother is Pink Floyd’s early masterpiece, released in 1970.
The album opens with Atom Heart Mother, a progressive rock number that runs over 20 minutes.
The song was originally an instrumental number drafted by David Gilmour.
Pink Floyd asked a British avant-garde musician named Ron Geesin to arrange it.
Ron Geesin added brass, cello, chorus, etc. to the original and made it sound like classical music.
For this reason, this song is a little less like Pink Floyd than usual, but I like it.
The second through fifth songs were composed by the band members, and have the usual Pink Floyd feel.
This album was the first time Pink Floyd reached number one in the charts, in the UK.
The album cover is designed by Hypnosis, there is no mention of the band’s name on the album cover.
