The Piper at the Gates of Dawn was the first album by Pink Floyd, whose members were Syd Barrett (lead vocals, lead guitar), Nick Mason (drums), Roger Waters (bass, vocals), and Richard Wright (keyboards, vocals).
The title is taken from the first words of the long narrative poem "Old Angel Midnight" by Jack Kerouac. I found a recording of Kerouac reading it, but too late! I already produced this program. So I will have to play it another time.
I recently heard this for the first time and it is my new favorite thing. Vocals: Al Hibbler. Piano: Hank Jones. Bass: Ron Carter. Drums: Oliver Jackson. Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone: Rahsaan Roland Kirk.
