"MASTERS OF ROCK".

 

 

Release Dates. 1974 - Italy: gennaio 1975 circa.

Brief Statistics. (1) Si tratta di una compilation di brani dei Floyd uscita solo in Europa, si trova anche negli U.S.A., ma solo d'importazione. Quasi tutte le versioni uscirono con la classica copertina con il titolo, in Germania addirittura in due versioni (Masters of Rock e Masters of Rock Vol. 1). Ma in alcuni paesi, come Olanda e Svezia, il disco uscì invece con una inedita copertina con un disegno stile "pop-art" che raffigurava la band, con Mason, Waters, Wright e Syd Barrett.

(2) Non tutti sanno che, stranamente, in tutte le edizioni di Masters of Rock e di The Best of The Pink Floyd la canzone Matilda Mother è riportata sulla copertina e sull'etichetta come Mathilda Mother, ma non se ne conosce il motivo, visto che la versione originale del titolo sull’album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn era comunque Matilda Mother.

(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)
