The explanation is quite simple: on AJTT&S there are 2 unnecessary tracks (11 and 15). AJTT&S track 11 is an extract of AJTT&S track 04 (this is exactly the same as track 04, the difference is that track 11 fades out after one minute). On UZP, there is the same duplication: UZP CD2 track 12 is exactly the same as the beginning of UZP CD2 track 09. AJTT&S track 15 is taken from ZP97 (it fades in slightly later, but it's clearly the soundtrack version). On UZP, there is the same mistake: UZP CD1 track 15 is identical to the soundtrack version (UZP CD1 track 12). Titles: ------- The titles used for the tracks were taken from official sources as often as possible. The only exception is "Fingal's Cave", for which no official title is known, therefore the tentative title from the original "Omay Yad" RoIO LP manufacturers was kept. The correct title for "Rain In The Country" from OY is "Unknown Song". "Oenone" from OY is actually one of the attempts for "Love Scene" (as explained in David Fricke's liner notes on the ZP97 booklet). "Riot Scene" title was preferred above "The Violent Sequence", because there is no evidence that Pink Floyd ever used "The Violent Sequence" as the title, and David Fricke (who clearly had access to the multi- track tapes) refers to this outtake as being "Riot Scene", on the official ZP97 booklet. Versions: --------- The tracks marked "soundtrack version" are taken from ZP97. The tracks marked "film version" are taken from ZP LaserDisc. The two tracks marked "rough mix" are taken from OY. On AJTT&S, most of the outtakes are not really "alternate versions", but rather "alternate mixes" (i.e. same take as on the official version, but differently mixed). Apparently these mixes contain all the tracks from the multi-track tape, while on the official versions some tracks were left out of the mix. This is why these alternate mixes from AJTT&S are called "full mix" here. More details about the different versions are given below. Numbering of "Love Scene" outtakes: ----------------------------------- Here is what we know from official sources: - Pink Floyd made at least 6 attempts for "Love Scene" - #4 is the quiet piano piece - #6 is the blues piece - the outtake known as "Oenone" was an earlier attempt for "Love Scene" (refer to David Fricke's liner notes in the ZP97 booklet), therefore it's one of the first 3 attempts On AJTT&S, tracks 7-8-9 seem to come from a continuous tape (there is no tape cut). Since track 7 is "Love Scene #4" and track 9 is "Love Scene #6", it is logical to assume that track 8 is "Love Scene #5". On AJTT&S again, tracks 10-11-12 could be also from a continuous tape (even if track 11 fades out early). This is why it was assumed that: - AJTT&S track 10 = "Love Scene #1" - AJTT&S track 11 = "Love Scene #2" (intro only, the complete version being on AJTT&S track 4) - AJTT&S track 12 = "Love Scene #3" Tracks order: ------------- The songs were organised to follow the movie. This is why: - CD1 begins with "Heart Beat, Pig Meat" - CD2 ends with "Come In Nr.51, Your Time Is Up" - "Riot Scene" is placed after "Heart Beat, Pig Meat" and before "Crumbling Land" - "Love Scene" is placed on CD2, just before "Come In Nr.51" The way the other songs are placed is a matter of taste. "Unknown Song" and "Country Song" follow "Crumbling Land". "Fingal's Cave" cannot be attributed to a specific scene (it could be an attempt for the final scene, but it could also be an attempt for the riot scene). It is placed on CD1 track 4, just after "Riot Scene", to contrast with the quietness of the preceding track. It offers also an interesting transition with the following track (the rock intro of "Crumbling Land" and "Fingal's Cave" have some similarities). For each song, the different versions were organised in order to have a progression between the versions. When different takes were available, the earlier takes come first. For a same take, the official version comes first, because rough mixes and full mixes often reveal other recorded tracks, not kept in the official mix (e.g. the vibes during "Love Scene #4", the piano and additional percussion during "Unknown Song", a second drums track with tempo mistakes during "Crumbling Land"). Description of the versions: ---------------------------- HEART BEAT, PIG MEAT: The "film version" is an alternate mono mix. The intro (before the first organ notes) is longer than on the soundtrack version. The sounds and background noises are differently mixed (especially the orchestra snippets). The last part is edited. RIOT SCENE: The only available version is an outtake. This song is often called "The Violent Sequence" by the fans, although there is no evidence that this title was used by Pink Floyd. It was played live during shows in early 1970 (with bass and drums). The song later re-emerged as "Us And Them". FINGAL'S CAVE: The only available version is an outtake. The title was given by the manufacturers of the "Omay Yad" RoIO LP. CRUMBLING LAND: The first version is an early take, where there is a solid rock intro, directly followed by the song itself. In fact only the first verse of the song was recorded during this early take. Curiously, the "film version" comes from the early take mentioned above, and not from the final take that appears on the soundtrack. The "extended version" is basically the same as the soundtrack version, but the ending with cars and street noises is uncut. The "full mix" version is from the same take as the soundtrack version, but here all the tracks are in the mix, even tracks with some experimentation (e.g. a second drums track with mistakes). UNKNOWN SONG: The "rough mix" version (entitled "Rain In The Country" in OY) comes from the same take as the soundtrack version (recorded 06Dec69), but there are edits here and there, and some instruments not mixed in the official version can be heard here (percussion, piano). The lead guitar is different. The "full mix" version is also from the same take, with all the tracks in the mix and without edit. COUNTRY SONG: The "humming version" and "harpsichord version" are early attempts. The "full mix" version is from the same take as the soundtrack version (recorded 12Dec69), but is slightly differently mixed. This version is also uncut and is more than one minute longer than the soundtrack version. LOVE SCENE: "Love Scene #1" is just organ and guitar. "Love Scene #2" is much more elaborated, with more keyboards, more guitar tracks, vibes and percussion. The "rough mix" version (entitled "Oenone" in OY) has some edits and does not include all the tracks. The "full mix" version has all the tracks in the mix, including an explicit sex scene, with "vocals" from Roger and David! "Love Scene #3" is another take, with similar instrumentation. "Love Scene #4" is a quiet piano piece (recorded 16Nov69), overdubbed with vibes. The soundtrack version only includes the piano, while the "full mix" version has the overdubs. "Love Scene #5" is a vibes duo. "Love Scene #6" is a blues piece, played by the whole band (recorded 16Nov69). The "full mix" version is from the same take as the soundtrack version, but is slightly differently mixed (note that the piano is on the left at the beginning and the suddenly moves to the right). COME IN NR.51, YOUR TIME IS UP: This song is actually "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" revisited. The "film version" is an alternate mono mix. The organ is louder in the mix, and one guitar track is edited out. Tracks Mapping: --------------- Here's a table with the correspondences between the tracks and the RoIO sources: AJTT&S and OY.
