Did you know that Nick Mason was paid just the same amount of money for driving Auto Union Type D, that the original test driver earned in the 1930s? Nick was even paid in the old Nazi German currency, the Reichsmarks. Did you know that Nick Mason is the only person to be a member of Pink Floyd all the time the band existed? Did you know that in the end of the song Fearless on the Meddle album, FC Liverpool fans’ anthem “You will never walk alone” can be heard?

note:

The album successfully followed The Dark Side Of The Moon.
The LP was originally sold wrapped in a black plastic sleeve with a sticker showing two shaking robotic hands on a background of the four elements. The main concept of the album was absence and so Pink Floyd wanted the album to “lack a cover.”
