Album Cover Art
Pink Floyd is known for their unique covers. From the simplicity of the cow on the Atom Heart Mother album to the psychedelic scene of A Saucer Full Of Secrets. Their covers are an intricate part of their music. The center picture includes Syd Barret and David Gilmore just before Syd quit the band.
The Nice Pair album was a 1973 reissue of Pink Floyd's first albums, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" and "A Saucerful of Secrets". The cover is a collage with photographs of the band and some weird pictures. The album contained the song "Flaming" which is not on the first issue of "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn". There are other versions of this album that do not contain the nudes and a version with different pictures.
The front cover of Pink Floyd's album, "A Nice Pair". Some of the pictures are ideas for album covers while others are about a phrase or saying. The center right-hand panel on the front depicts a fork in the road, while the bottom right is a fine kettle of fish. On some copies the woman's breasts are blacked out or were covered with a sticker. The first copies had a picture of a Mr. W. R. Phang's dental surgery but Dr. Phang objected and the picture was replaced with a picture of a gargling monk.
