How “Meddle” Proved Pink Floyd’s Greatness Even Before ‘Dark Side of the Moon’
Pink Floyd released their album “Meddle” this week in 1971. While something of a transitional album with David Gilmour in the post-Syd Barrett era, the band still managed to put out a great record, anchored by the 23-minute opus “Echoes”.
In the latest installment of Carter’s Catalog, Carter Alan talks about his experience going backward in Pink Floyd’s catalog after discovering the band through the popularity of Dark Side of the Moon.
