"ANIMALS".

 

 

Release Dates. UK: 21 gennaio 1977 - USA: 12 febbraio 1977 - Italy: fine gennaio 1977.

Brief Statistics. (1) Il disco fu uno degli album più controversi della storia della band, non ebbe il successo dovuto, tranne per il trionfale tour americano del 1977. L'album racchiude senz'altro lo spirito autunnale e intimista del miglior Waters, vero tour de force nella melanconia e nella follia dell'esistenza: rappresenta gli uomini che assumono in un mondo postindustriale e devastato, i dati caratteriali di maiali, cani e pecore. Se la lavorazione della copertina del disco precedente comportò un duro approfondimento concettuale, quella di Animals impegnò l’Hipgnosis su un piano principalmente tecnico, dopo la decisione di Waters di visualizzare il concept dell’album con alcune fotografie in bianco e nero della Battersea Power Station. Poiché alla band piacque il colore e la luce del cielo ritratto durante il primo giorno di session (quello dell’imprevista mancata esibizione del maiale volante) e la posizione del maiale ripreso invece il terzo giorno, quando il cielo era risultato “spento” , la cosa migliore era quella di sovrapporre le due foto, incollando il maiale sulla foto del primo giorno e poi ritoccare il tutto. Gran parte della session fotografica si può vedere nel libretto degli spartiti.

(2) Un aneddoto legato ai vinili. Nei testi di Animals sulla copertina interna nera risulta esserci una stranezza in quase tutte le edizioni. Il fatto curioso è che su quasi tutti i dischi in vinile, nell'inner, troviamo la frase nel brano "Dogs": "...Who was given a seat in the stand...". Invece, in alcuni libri ed anche in alcuni siti, si riporta la frase: "...Who was given a pat on the back...". Certo è che non si spiega il motivo di tale stranezza, visto che nel disco viene cantata la seconda frase. Ma la prima frase era cantata anche nel tour del 1975 (in "You gotta be crazy") e viene anche riportata sul libretto interno dei CD originali; ed anche nello spartito originale di Animals, il testo sotto le note viene riportato esatto, "...Who was giv-en a pat on the back, ...". In sintesi, quasi tutte le versioni dei testi nell'inner dei vinili riportano la frase sbagliata, ma non se ne conosce il motivo; gli unici due inner con il testo corretto sono quelli dell'edizione inglese del 1997 e nelle edizioni della Yugoslavia. Da ricordare che due dei pezzi apparsi su "Animals" erano già stati eseguiti dal vivo dai Floyd durante i due tour del 1974 e 1975: "Raving And Drooling" ("Sheep") e "You Gotta Be Crazy" ("Dogs").

(Per ogni approfondimento su dischi e canzoni, si consiglia la lettura dei libri dei Lunatics: PINK FLOYD. STORIE  SEGRETI (Giunti, 2012); Tutte le canzoni dei Pink Floyd. Il Fiume Infinito (Giunti, 2014)
