Pink Floyd's 10 Best Pre-Dark Side of the Moon Tracks
1. "The Embryo"
Standing out as one of the greatest early Floyd tracks, "The Embryo" was never recorded in its full version by the band. A short, softer version appeared on the Works compilation, but the ten-minute psych-rock version they played live remains the exclusive domain of bootlegs. This is a shame, because "Embryo" is a classic example of Floyd's evolution, mixing their early eerie psychedelic style with what we would hear more of on "Echoes" and Meddle just a short time later.
