- Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast
Recorded at EMI Abbey Road studios.
Producer: Pink Floyd
The album was very successful, although it is quite extravagant because of two very long experimental tracks it features. The first one takes the entire A side and Pink Floyd wanted it to be something big.
The song Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast was inspired by the morning rituals of a faithful Pink Floyd roadie called Alan Stiles, whose voice can be heard on the album. The song was performed live only once.
The album's name is a reference to a newspaper article about the theoretical possibility of human pacemakers running on nuclear energy.
