I think it's a great album. I'd say Waters and Geesin were quite bold.

Better than just make another Pink Floyd album without the rest of the band.

I enjoy this album, but I also enjoy Ron Geesin a lot. Fun soundtrack to a cult flick, it also got some nice moments.

I enjoy it more than the new Pink Floyd album, but that's just my opinion.

Don't forget the film was made available on DVD last year and you can still buy the certificate '15' disk ... the film was originally, in 1970, an X certificate.

The DVD contains -

full colour 107-minute film
trailer
38-minute suite of original music

I like this record a lot, I just wish they'd give it a proper remastering. I can imagine that Geesin was using fairly destructive editing techniques to create some of the sounds, but separate tracks should certainly exist for "Give Birth to a Smile". Also, what's with the two versions of that song? The one used in the film had a heavier drum beat, no guitar solos, and no Doris Troy. If Roger bothered to re-record it for the soundtrack's release, why would he dislike it enough to keep it off The Early Years? It's sort of a prototype for "Eclipse". I think it's safe to say Roger also played bass on "Mrs. Throat Goes Walking", but the vocalizations definitely sound like Ron.

So bonkers, but I love it. Remember walking to the second hand shop in 2003 to buy this on record too.
