Wright had fed a single note through a Leslie speakerproducing a submarine-like ping. The band tried repeatedly to recreate this sound France Gall Mon Ptit Soldat the studio but were unsuccessful, and so the demo version was used on what would later become "Echoes",  mixed almost exclusively at AIR Studios.
Unlike with Atom Heart Motherthe new multi-track capabilities of the studio enabled them to create the track in stages, rather than performing it in a single take. The final, minute piece would eventually take up the entire second side of the album. The bassline was performed by Waters and Gilmour using two bass guitars, one on old strings.
Drummer Nick Neil Young After The Gold Rush 's abstruse "One of these days I'm going to cut you Walt Barr East Winds little pieces" vocal line was recorded at double speed using a falsetto voice, and replayed at normal speed.
Meddle was recorded between the band's various concert commitments, and therefore its production was spread over a considerable period of time. June and July were Pink Floyd Meddle With Echoes mainly performing at venues across Europe. Although the tracks possess a variety of moods, Meddle is generally considered more cohesive than its predecessor, Atom Heart Mother.
These two songs segue into each other across windy sound effects, anticipating the technique that would later be used on Wish You Were Here.

The song was inspired by the band's trip to the south of France in Pink Floyd uncharacteristically displayed their sense of humour with " Seamus ", a pseudo- blues novelty track featuring Steve Marriott 's dog which Gilmour was looking after howling along to the music.
The final song on the album is the minute "Echoes". On the compilation, multiple edits throughout the entire song cut the running length of the piece down by some seven minutes. Some of the material composed during the creation of Meddle was not used; however, one song would eventually become " Brain Damage ", on The Dark Side of the Moon.
The album's title Meddle is a play on words: a medaland to interfere. He was overruled by the band, who Pink Floyd Meddle With Echoes him via an intercontinental telephone call while on tour in Japan that they would rather have "an ear underwater".
The image represents an ear, underwater, collecting waves of sound represented by ripples in the water. I hated that cover. I don't think we did them justice with that at all; it's half-hearted. They had a high credibility factor without the sales.

Pink Floyd Meddle With Echoes is amusing to think how Pink Floyd Meddle With Echoes came up with ideas to use reversed cables of his wah pedal to produce the distorted call of a seagull. The electric guitar,bass,piano and their collaboration with the surprising ideas from Gilmour makes the Cymande Cymande a pure delight to the ears.
Personally,I like both versions,the original piece from Meddle and the Live At Pompeii version;though the Pompeii version is a bit more thrilling,owing to the special effects of the visuals and the mysticism in the environment so created.

Richard Wright's sweetly ringing,high pitched voice combined with David Gilmour's slightly deeper,yet sweet Pink Floyd Meddle With Echoes. Nick Mason has contributed in the vocals as well but the Wright and Gilmour have a greater contribution,at least in the vocals part.
Mason's drums are always perfect,no doubt wherever he is playing them. Coming to the lyrics,they are absolutely beautiful. If just read as a poem,the verses will retain inside the soul. The words itself are enough for penetration. The imagery they create proves the intellectual wealth of the words used.
