Watch Childhood’s End, from Obscured By Clouds, released June 1972 (2016 Remix)
Childhoods End, from Pink Floyds seventh album Obscured By Clouds, has been remixed from the original master tapes in 2016 by Andy Jackson and Damon Iddins.
In February 1972, the band were already playing The Dark Side Of The Moon live and starting to record its songs, but production was briefly halted when they accepted their second commission for filmmaker Barbet Schroeder, to create the soundtrack for his feature film La Vallée.
In the last week of February 1972, Pink Floyd started work, at Strawberry Studios in Herouville, France, and as David Gilmour later described: “We sat in a room, wrote, recorded, like a production line.” The result was 10 pieces of music: six songs and four instrumentals, which Melody Maker described as “some of the most aggressive instrumentals the Floyd have recorded.”
David Gilmour’s Childhoods End was one of the few songs from the soundtrack to be included in Pink Floyds live shows and was featured on European dates, starting on December 1, 1972, and at the start of the bands March 1973 tour of North America, usually with an extended instrumental passage.
