2 - Embryo (Waters) 04:37
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, April - June 1969
Primary source : "Picnic - A Breath of Fresh Air" Harvest sampler, released June 1970
Source for the tree : "Works" CD
This version is often considered as a demo. In fact, it was recorded during the
"Ummagumma" studio sessions at Abbey Road, but it was not included on the album,
because the band later decided to organise the studio disc in four parts (one part for
each member). This song first appeared in June 1970 on "Picnic - A Breath of Fresh Air"
Harvest sampler, without the band's agreement. In 1983, this version was included on
"Works" Canadian compilation, this time with the band's agreement.

3 - Biding My Time (Waters) 05:14
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, April - June 1969
Primary source : "Relics" compilation, released May 14, 1971
Source for the tree : "Relics" CD
This is the other song that was recorded during the "Ummagumma" studio sessions, but
was not included on the album. This track was part of "The Man & the Journey" concept
suite that the Floyd used to perform in 1969.

Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict
(Waters)
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, April - June 1969
Primary source : "Ummagumma" album, released October 25, 1969
Source for the tree : "Ummagumma" 1994 remaster CD
Length :
4 - "this is pretty avant-garde isn't it" 00:09
During Roger Waters' speech at 04:32, this sentence can be heard on the right channel
(you have to play the song at half speed to hear it properly).
5 - "and the wind cried ... " 00:06
There was a strong debate about what Roger says at the very end of the track: "And the
wind cried Mary ? Marion ? Back ? ". Make your own opinion before Dave thanks you ;-)
Note : it is also said that at some point Roger says "Bring Back My Guitar", but we haven't been
able to find this sentence during the song (or nothing that could be clearly identified as this).

6 - Moonhead (uncredited) 05:47
Recorded : July 10, 1969
Primary source : BBC TV broadcast, July 20, 1969
Source for the tree : unknown gen copy
This unreleased track was recorded by the band for the BBC TV broadcast during the
night of the first moon landing (July 20, 1969). The show was subtitled "What if it's just
green cheese". Note that the bass line later developed into the central part of "Money".

Primary source : "Atom Heart Mother" album, released October 10, 1970
Source for the tree : "Atom Heart Mother" remaster CD

This sentence was probably said by Ron Geesin (co-composer of the track) and can be
heard at 17:28.

Another sentence by Ron Geesin. Can be heard at 19:08

12 - Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun (Waters) - live short version 05:19
Recorded : live, Hamburg, Muzikhalle, Grosser Saal, February 25, 1971
Primary source : "Hamburger" RoIO LP
Source for the tree : "Pink Floyd In Concerto" Italian single
These 4 tracks come from an Italian single entitled "Pink Floyd In Concerto" that was
released as a bonus with the "Gong" magazine, sometimes in the 70's. This one plays
extracts from a bootleg LP ("Hamburger"). When the powers that be found it was
bootlegged music, they tried to stop the magazine selling, but some copies went through.
The single was later re-released as a bonus with another bootleg LP ("A Special Treat").
Here's what the front cover of the single says: "Supplemento al No 1 anno 4o di 'GONG'
mensile di musica e cultura progressiva. 'PINK FLOYD IN CONCERTO' 16 minuti di musica
live da monaco di baviera".

16 - One of These Days (Waters, Wright, Mason, Gilmour) - demo #1 04:49
Recorded : 1971?
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "Granny Takes A Trip" RoIO CD
Nick Mason's words "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces" are
repeated all through the song. The voice in the background all along the track is the one
of Jimmy Young, an English DJ who was disliked by the band and is the inspiration for
the song. This Jimmy Young speech was also used during live performances in late 1974,
when the band played a tape of this speech (in loop mode, with increasing tempo) before
the song "Raving and Drooling" (early version of "Sheep").

17 - One of These Days (Waters, Wright, Mason, Gilmour) - demo #2 06:49
Recorded : 1971?
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "Granny Takes A Trip" RoIO CD
This second demo is more structured, and Jimmy Young is not talking in the background.
Note that some Floyd experts think these 2 demos could be a fake.

There's only one verse, which is mainly the first verse of the original version (until "just
wait a while for the right day"), where the last lines were replaced by those of the second
verse ("and as you rise ... faces in the crowd"). This version also fades out early.

20 - Roger the Hat interview 07:30
Recorded : 1972
Primary source : Capital Radio broadcast ("Pink Floyd Story"), December 1976 - January 1977
Source for the tree : unknown gen from Capital Radio broadcast
All though "The Dark Side of the Moon" album, you can hear the voices of people
interviewed by the band. Here, Roger the Hat (who was a roadie for various rock bands)
is interviewed by Roger Waters. On the album, you can hear his voice during "On the
Run" ("Live for today, gone tomorrow, that's me, hahaha…") and during "Us And Them"
("Short, sharp shock …").

At the very end of "The Dark Side of the Moon", you can hear at very low level (below
the tape hiss level) some notes of music. Some think it's a Beatles tune, some don't ;-).
Even if it's easier to remove it than keep it, all the remastered editions of the album have
this "default".
