In the mid 1970s, while I was at university, Pink Floyd released two more albums, respectively “Wish you were here” and “Animals”. I bought each of these on release, and on the whole was pleased with the contents, which seemed more in keeping with the classic stuff than had been “Dark Side of the Moon”.
Curiously, in 1974 I had found in a record shop in Sheffield, UK, a 1968 Pink Floyd single called “Point me at the sky”, which is actually quite a good track.
As the years rolled on, I became less narrow-minded, and decided that “Dark Side of the Moon” was actually good stuff throughout, and indeed with the next two LPs formed a trilogy of a classic genre different from older Pink Floyd, and very different from what happened later. In this respect, the way I see it, these three albums have this aspect in their character in common with the Cat Stevens gems “Mona Bone Jakon”, “Tea for the Tillerman”, and “Teaser and he Firecat”.
