The first track of the film was in fact recorded backwards. We inverted this track, so that
you can hear the song as it was recorded (track 4). Track 5 is the track as it appears in the film.
Note that part 7 is an early version of "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".

On the film, the slide guitar that can be heard on the regular version was edited out.

This version has alternate lyrics, and the vocals are sung in a very different way than on the album
("head voice").

Primary source : "More" film, released 1969

CD10

1 - "More" outtakes 05:42
Recorded : London, Sound Techniques Studios, March 1969
Primary source : BBC broadcast ("Laying Down Tracks"), June 1969
Source for the tree : unknown gen from BBC broadcast
This is in fact a documentary about the multi-track recording technique, broadcast by the BBC in June 1969, under the title "Laying Down Tracks".
One can hear outtakes from the "More" recording sessions: first, some unreleased instrumental music, then "Cirrus Minor" and at last the keyboards intro to "Main Theme".
On some RoIOs, this BBC docmumentary is wrongly referred as being "The Committee" soundtrack.


"Zabriskie Point"

2 - Heart Beat, Pig Meat (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 03:10
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point" soundtrack, released 1970
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD

3 - Heart Beat, Pig Meat (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) - film version 02:55
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point" film, released 1970
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point" LaserDisc
Alternate mono mix.
Extended intro (before the first organ notes).
Sounds and background noises are differently mixed (especially the orchestra snippets).
The last part is edited.

4 - Crumbling Land (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 04:13
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point" soundtrack, released 1970
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD
This song was described by David Gilmour as "a kind of country and western number which he
[Michelangelo Antonioni, the film's director] could have gotten done better by any number of
American bands.
But he chose ours... Very strange".

5 - Crumbling Land (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) - extended 05:44
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "Omay Yad" RoIO CD
This version is basically the same as the regular version from the soundtrack album, but
the ending with cars and street noises is uncut.

6 - Crumbling Land (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) - film version 00:36
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point" film, released 1970
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point" LaserDisc
Alternate mono mix, with different vocal tracks.

7 - Come in Number 51, Your Time is Up (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 04:59
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point" soundtrack, released 1970
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD
"Careful With That Axe, Eugene" revisited.

8 - Come in Number 51, Your Time is Up (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) - film version 05:10
Recorded : Rome, November - December 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point" film, released 1970
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point" LaserDisc
Alternate mono mix, organ mixed louder, one guitar track edited out. Note that the
"reprise", after the abrupt cut, only appears on the LaserDisc version.

9 - Love Scene - Version 4 (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 06:43
Recorded : Rome, November 16, 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD, released 1997
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD
Pink Floyd made at least 6 attempts to compose music that could fit in the desert sex sequence of the film.
Finally, none of the Floyd's versions was chosen (the music
accompanying the love scene in the film was composed and played by Grateful Dead's guitarist Jerry Garcia). Version 4 is a quiet instrumental piano piece, played by Rick Wright.

10 - Love Scene - Version 6 (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 07:24
Recorded : Rome, November 16, 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD, released 1997
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD
Version 6 is a totally different approach than version 4.
This is a blues jam, played by the whole band, not very far from the blues number they used to play during their live performances in 1970 and 1971.

11 - Unknown Song (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 06:00
Recorded : Rome, December 6, 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD, released 1997
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD
The acoustic guitar duo has some themes from "The Narrow Way Part 1".
The bass lines appearing in this outtake were later developed in "Atom Heart Mother" ("Funky Dung").

12 - Rain in the Country (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 06:45
Recorded : Rome, December 6, 1969
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "Omay Yad" RoIO CD
Alternate take from "Unknown Song" (same basic track, but different lead and overdubs, different edits).
The title "Rain In The Country" was probably given by the "Omay Yad" RoIO LP manufacturers,
where this outtake first surfaced.

13 - Country Song (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright) 04:37
Recorded : Rome, December 12, 1969
Primary source : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD, released 1997
Source for the tree : "Zabriskie Point - Extended Soundtrack" CD

14 - Oenone (uncredited) 06:21
Recorded : Rome, November - December, 1969
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "Omay Yad" RoIO CD
"Oenone", from Greek mythology, is the name of a nymph deserted by her husband,
Paris, for Helen of troy. Some prefer to spell this outtake "Oneone", because it would be pronounced "oh-nee-oh-nee", the same way as the end of Zabriskie Point's director name, Michelangelo AntONIONI.
This title was probably given by the "Omay Yad" RoIO LP manufacturers, where this outtake first surfaced.

15 - Fingal's Cave (uncredited) 01:49
Recorded : Rome, November - December, 1969
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "Omay Yad" RoIO CD
"Fingal's Cave" is the name of a large cavern on Staffa islet in the Hebrides, West Scotland.
This title was probably given by the "Omay Yad" RoIO LP manufacturers, where this outtake first surfaced.
