Disc #18 MP3 CDRom
Syd / Pink Floyd OOPS (Out Of Phase Stereo) Mixes-

-random notes-
It's damn near impossible to assemble the definitive comp of Syd covers, so we didn't try. What we have here is a wide selection of faves and obscuros for every taste. We have the Okey-Pokey Band (first Syd cover EVER) ripping through "See Emily Play" and we have Three To One ripping off the Okey-Pokey band years later. We have a half- accidental live cover from Tangerine Dream. We have Area Code emptying out a half-empty Buffalo dive with "Astronomy Domine." There's a cover of "Echoes," included because... well, they covered *Echoes*...! (There were *two* covers of "Echoes" to choose from, in fact. Count your blessings.) You'll appreciate some, you'll hate some, you'll ignore a lot of them.

Fine. This is the do-it-yourself volume of HYGIY. Take what you like, load it onto your MP3 player, burn your own CD, whatever. Most songs are by Syd. Others are about him. Others are early Floyd. We're not fussy; this is Casual Day.

Here are comments on a few of the songs, when we could think of something to say. More notes can be found in individual folders elsewhere on the disc. Enjoy.

This California band somehow considered Roger Waters to be a kindred spirit; they opened their 1985 album "Panic Station" with this excellent cover of "Point Me At The Sky." Features Arthur Barrow (ex-Zappa) on keyboards. No obvious Syd connection but a fine cover nonetheless.

An early-1980s "real music" band from Buffalo, NY, playing "Astronomy Domine" at the now-defunct McVan's on 4/20/81. McVan's had been the first rock club in the city, premiering such diverse talents as Little Richard, Foreigner (as Black Sheep), Hendrix (pre-Experience), Frank Sinatra, John Cale, the B-52s. At this point it was a punk dive on the skids. This is the last known instance of "Astronomy Domine" being played there.

This isn't quite on the level of Pat Boone covering Little Richard, but only because Syd saw a lot of money from it, enabling him to move to London's fabulous Chelsea Cloisters. I'm glad this exists, and it's too historic to omit, but the track hasn't aged very well. It appeared on "Pinups," Bowie's oldies-remake album of 1973.

It turns out Marianne is old friends with Roger Waters of all people. In 1999, she finally got around to asking if he'd care to donate a song to her new album. He eventually came up with "Incarceration Of A Flower Child," supposedly written in 1968 and his first-ever song about Syd. Both the music and the lyrics suggest he revised it afterward. Rewriting songs about Syd is something of a hobby with him. ;)

America's premier psychedelic band (on a major label anyway), they've been playing the occasional Syd cover for years. The earliest we're aware of is their rendition of "Opel" from 1994. It had been intended for this collection, but they stretch out the coda for eight minutes... that's great if you're already a fan, but it wouldn't win them any new ones. Here they are doing "Lucifer Sam." All well and good, but what you really want is to run out and buy one of their albums. Any album from 1993 onward will do. Go ahead: buy a Flaming Lips album. All things will be revealed unto you. We'll wait right here until you get back.

>From the 1973 "As He Stands" album, this is another of those no-Syd-but-oh-well. Geesin didn't rate Syd at all but he thought highly of Waters, enough to record "To Roger Waters, Wherever You Are." It was too much fun to leave out, so here 'tis.

I can't even remember where this came from. I believe somebody emailed it to me, but it was some time ago. Another fine version of "Lucifer Sam," more laid-back than many (semi- acoustic), but retaining that "Secret Agent Man" feel. He has a track on HYGIY15 as well.

This is the singer from Soft Cell. His "Terrapin" imagines it's Burt Bacharach on Mars. Surprisingly it works--for maybe four minutes. This goes on for 4:18.

>From "Neil's Heavy Concept Album," this version of "The Gnome" is everything one could hope for after having read the liner notes. (I could never get through them, but dig those horns!)

Their "Flower Power" album was the sort of thing you'd see in the bargain bin for $1.99 in the drugstore. A concept album: anonymous session musicians recreate recent chart hits. The liner notes go out of their way to reassure us there really is a place for this sort of album. (Would YOU buy an album whose liner notes are half-apologetic about its very existence?) All kidding aside, it's reasonably well done. This sort of LP would do quite well in countries like Paraguay, where kids couldn't tell the difference. However, this was aimed at the American market, which makes "Emily" a curious selection. (Whoever compiled it may have been connected with Tower Records on some level?) It's notable for being THE very first known cover of a Syd or Pink Floyd song. All the tunes on the LP charted in mid-1967, so this would have been produced a month or two after that.

The problem with assembling a comp like this is that everybody does "Lucifer Sam." Even so, nobody does it like Shockabilly. Nobody ever will. Recorded in 1984, now it belongs to the ages.

"Monolight" (conclusion), from the LP "Encore." Live in North America, March/April 1977. The piece takes up an LP side, and this is the end--after the usual festivites, a piano takes up the main four-chord theme of "Celestial Voices." The band picks it up from there, for a pleasant two or three minutes. They don't get any further than those four chords, but we could count it as a cover version nonetheless. Homage. The liner notes to their first LP ("Electronic Meditation," 1969) mention "Saucerful Of Secrets" as an influence.

What's this??? We thought nobody else even *knew* about the Okey-Pokey Band. We were wrong. Three To One not only copped the same crappy album, they stole... errr, they sampled? they appropriated the Okey-Pokey version of "See Emily Play" and made it their own. (Just barely.)
