Originally released as part of the mammoth 2016 rarities clearinghouse The Early Years 1965-1972, 1968 Germin/Ation covers 1968, the year Pink Floyd spent regrouping after the departure of Syd Barrett. The guitarist can be seen on a performance from Belgium in early 1968, but he and the band are miming on-stage. It is one of several live performances on the visual component (they're available both on DVD and Blu-ray), with the band being seen on various programs from London, Paris, and Rome. On the CD, the band's four single sides from that year -- "Point Me at the Sky," "It Would Be So Nice," "Julia Dream," "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" -- are paired with two outtakes, including "Roger's Boogie" (which does not boogie). The set is rounded out by two BBC sessions, with the first containing early versions of "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" and "A Saucerful of Secrets" under different names.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska,” a stripped back and entirely acoustic album. A timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections. An album that describes an America from the margins, and that many consider his best.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
