Index of PINK FLOYD UmmaGumma Vinyl Album Discography and Album Cover Gallery

"Ummagumma" is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released in 1969. The album is considered a classic of the progressive rock genre and is known for its experimental and unconventional nature.

"Ummagumma" is a double album, with the first disc featuring live recordings of four Pink Floyd songs, recorded at various concerts during their 1969 tour. The second disc features individual solo pieces by each member of the band, showcasing their different musical interests and styles. These pieces range from acoustic guitar and keyboard compositions to abstract sound collages and experimental sound effects.

The album's unique format and eclectic mix of styles has made "Ummagumma" a seminal work in the history of progressive rock, and it continues to be highly regarded by fans and music critics alike. The album's cover art, designed by the graphic design group Hipgnosis, is also well-known and highly regarded, featuring a surreal painting titled "Gigi".

The original cover artwork for Pink Floyd's "Ummagumma" album, including the painting "Gigi", has been removed from some re-issues of the album due to licensing issues. When record labels re-issue albums, they often need to secure the rights to use the original artwork again, and if they are unable to do so, they may choose to use alternative artwork or remove the original artwork altogether. This is what happened with some re-issues of "Ummagumma", where the "Gigi" painting was removed from the cover due to the difficulty of securing the rights to use it. However, some re-issues of the album do still include the original cover art.

The sound of the fly on Pink Floyd's "Ummagumma" album was created using a variety of recording techniques. One of the methods involved recording the sound of a real fly in a studio setting and then manipulating the recording to create the desired sound effect. This could have involved adjusting the speed, pitch, or volume of the recording, or using sound-editing software to layer multiple recordings together. Another method could have involved synthesizing the fly sound using electronic instruments or sound generators. The exact method used to create the fly sound on "Ummagumma" is not specified, but it is likely that a combination of different techniques was used to achieve the desired effect.
