Zabriskie Point Soundtrack and Lost sessions


Zabriskie Point is a 1970 American film by Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni, widely noted at the time for its setting in the counterculture of the United States in the late 1960s. Some of the film's scenes were shot on location at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley. Zabriskie Point was an overwhelming commercial failure and panned by most critics upon release. It has, however, achieved somewhat of a cult status and is noted for its cinematography, use of music, and direction.


Music:
The soundtrack to Zabriskie Point included music from Pink Floyd, The Youngbloods, The Kaleidoscope, Jerry Garcia, Patti Page, Grateful Dead, the Rolling Stones and John Fahey. Roy Orbison sang the theme song, over the credits, called "So Young".







Zabriskie Point is a soundtrack album to the Michelangelo Antonioni film of the same name. It was originally released in February 1970 and comprises songs from various artists. A 1997 re-release includes four bonus tracks each from Jerry Garcia and Pink Floyd that were used in the film, but not the original soundtrack. Jim Morrison of the Doors wrote the track "L'America" for the film, but was rejected by Antonioni ("L'America" was later released on the Doors album L.A. Woman). A Rolling Stones track, "You Got the Silver", is featured in the film but not present on this album.

Disc 1:
1. "Heart Beat, Pig Meat"   Pink Floyd
2. "Brother Mary"  Kaleidoscope
3. "Excerpt from Dark Star"  Grateful Dead
4. "Crumbling Land" Pink Floyd
5. "Tennessee Waltz" Patti Page
6. "Sugar Babe"   The Youngbloods
7. "Love Scene"  Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead)
8. "I Wish I Was a Single Girl Again"  Roscoe Holcomb
9. "Mickey's Tune"   Kaleidoscope
10. "Dance of Death"   John Fahey
11. "Come in Number 51, Your Time Is Up"  Pink Floyd

Disc 2:
1. "Love Scene Improvisations (Version 1)"  Jerry Garcia
2. "Love Scene Improvisations (Version 2)"  Jerry Garcia
3. "Love Scene Improvisations (Version 3)"  Jerry Garcia
4. "Love Scene Improvisations (Version 4)"  Jerry Garcia
5. "Country Song" Pink Floyd
6. "Unknown Song" Pink Floyd
7. "Love Scene (Version 6)" Pink Floyd
8. "Love Scene (Version 4)" Pink Floyd






Pink Floyd's contributions to the album were recorded in November and December 1969, after the release of Ummagumma. "Come in Number 51, Your Time Is Up" is a re-recording of "Careful with That Axe, Eugene," originally released as a b-side in December 1968. "Love Scene (Version 4)" is a Richard Wright solo piano composition. "Country Song" (also known as "The Red Queen") is a ballad filled with chess metaphors. "Unknown Song" (also known as "Rain in the Country") is a relaxed instrumental. "Love Scene (Version 6)" is a bluesy instrumental. A track entitled "Fingal's Cave" and another called "Oenone" were recorded but did not appear on the finished album. Pink Floyd also recorded other unreleased material during the same sessions. Most notable is a lengthy composition which at that time was known as "The Violent Sequence" (later released on Dark Side of the Moon Immersion Box Set). This piece is immediately recognisable as the basis of "Us and Them" from Dark Side of the Moon.

David Jon Gilmour (Pink Floyd)


David Jon Gilmour, CBE (born 6 March 1946) is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968, effectively as a replacement for founder Syd Barrett, who left the band shortly afterwards. Pink Floyd subsequently achieved international success with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. By the early 1980s, they had become one of the most critically acclaimed and best-selling acts in the history of popular music; it was estimated that by 2012 the band had sold over 250 million records worldwide, including 75 million units sold in the United States. Following the departure of another founder member, Roger Waters, Gilmour assumed leadership of Pink Floyd in 1985.

In addition to his work with Pink Floyd, Gilmour has produced a variety of artists, for example the Dream Academy, and has had a solo career which has included four studio albums: David Gilmour, About Face, On an Island, and Rattle That Lock. As a member of Pink Floyd, he was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. In 2005, Gilmour was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for his services to music. He was awarded with the Outstanding Contribution title at the 2008 Q Awards. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 14 in their list of the greatest guitarists of all time. Additionally, Gilmour was voted number 36 in the greatest voices in rock by Planet Rock listeners in 2009.

He has taken part in projects to promote international charities related to such subjects as animal rights, homelessness, poverty, environmentalism, wildlife conservation, human rights, and music therapy. He has married twice and is the father of eight children.

Jazz Funk Soul Acid Groove


In a genre of music dominated by sales of compilation records, The Best of Acid Jazz is one of those rare records that lives up to its title. For anyone new to the world of Acid Jazz (or unaware of exactly what "Acid Jazz" means), this record provides a pleasant mix of sounds from various elements of the Acid Jazz scene. There is not a bad song to be heard. The tight sounds one should expect from a quality Acid Jazz issue are mixed here with powerfully soulful vocals to create classic sounds throughout this record. If you are exploring Acid Jazz for the first time or simply want to expand your horizons, I cannot recommend better first step than The Best of Acid Jazz.
