Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 2nd October!
On the 2nd October 1970 the fifth album by Pink Floyd was released in the UK. „Atom Heart Mother“ marks the first No. 1 LP for the band in Great Britain. It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and especially mixed for four-channel quadrophonic sound.
The title track fills the A-side (appr. 50 minutes long) on the vinyl edition and is parted in six tracks and features Ron Geesin as the orchestrator and organizer of this recording.
The cover was designed by Hipgnosis (Storm Thorgerson) and marked a new style: The band name was not featured for the first time and it also contains not any photographs of the band/musicians on or inside the cover.
By the way:
The cow on the front was named „Lulubelle III“ 😉
