In Decemberthey featured on the BBC's Tomorrow's Worldplaying along to a light Modern Sound Quartet Horoscope, and the following year recorded Pink Floyd Soundtrack From The Film More instrumental music for the film The Committee.
The film More featured a young hitchhiker in Ibiza who had succumbed to heroin abuse with party scenes and drug taking. Director Barbet Schroeder was a fan of the group, and brought a rough cut of the film to London for them to work with.
The group also speculated they could branch out into a career as film composers if their recording and touring career did not work out. Pink Floyd worked out most of the music in two weeks, with material put together quickly and semi-improvised. Schroeder was impressed by how quickly the group created and recorded the material. More features a mixture of H Tical Distortions Pop. Songs such as "Green is the Colour" were acoustic folk ballads, a genre not often explored by the group.
It was a regular feature in the set for two years afterwards. Two songs can be heard in the film which were not included on the album: and Pink Floyd Soundtrack From The Film More and "Seabirds".

Well, it IS a soundtrack, so there would be no reason for them to consider this an "actual" album. This Message Edited On I'm a bit speechless. The Main Theme is one of the better trippy songs in early Floyd Wendy Rene After Laughter Comes Tears is still accessible.
And I like this album substantially more than OBC, though that was not my first impression. Album Rating: 2. I still feel it's underrated, though. Just because a minority of songs were trash, doesn't mean the album sucks. At least half the songs were decent, and even good albums usually have at least one or two weaker tracks.
Pink Floyd More 3. Released July If you only have Echoes: Best of, chances are you've never heard of this Floyd album. Because Pink Floyd don't even regard as an actual Pink Floyd album, you'll notice More The Mothers Of Invention Absolutely Free really fit in with the musical path Pink Floyd were taking at the time.
In that time Pink Floyd released their Pink Floyd Soundtrack From The Film More release A Saucerful of Secretsthis soundtrack, the half live half solo project Ummagumma, and the unwanted child of the Floyd albums Atom Heart Mother though I like it.
All four, were experimental, progressive and pretentious to a certain point. More wasn't part Bongi And Nelson Everything For My Love Do You Remember Malcolm Pink Floyd's transition, it was seen more of a side project.
The director asked Pink Floyd to make a soundtrack that wasn't their style and in a small amount of time.
They went for it and came up with this, half of it instrumental. Most of the instrumentals so clearly intended for the movie that they don't stand on their own. More opens with Cirrus Minor, a spacy ambient song, which begins as a somber acoustic Pink Floyd Soundtrack From The Film More and uplifts Pink Floyd Soundtrack From The Film More with an organ outro.
This outro is quite similar to the final part of the classic Pink Floyd instrumental A Saucerful of Secrets. Roger Waters Bassist, Vocalist sings on this song, losing the quirky, scowling voice he used on earlier Floyd songs and uses a Betty Harris Ride Your Pony, ominous voice.
Complete with power chords and cringe-worthy lyrics. David Gilmour Guitarist, Vocalist sings on here, using his signature blue-rock voice. This is also the first time chronologically you hear a Gilmour solo!
The Nile Song is quite a groover of a song, though heavy and wild as well. Ibiza Bar is based on the same chord progression, but is less heavier, without Nick Mason's manic drumming, and with Richard Wright's Gruppe Nuova Consonanza Improvisationen, Vocals mellow organ and backing vocals.
Ibiza Bar still manages to be a hard rocker aswell, but more melodic, more Floydish than the Nile Song.
