Pink Floyd in 1968 - boldly heading for the musical unknown.

Early(ish) Pink Floyd. This, from a session recorded around March of 1968 and issued as a single.

It Would Be So Nice is probably one of the more obscure singles in the Pink Floyd opus, having not done all that well, not issued in the States and relegated to a "Best Of" album, first released by EMI in Holland in 1970 before it was eventually included in later reissue packages of early Pink Floyd material.

This is one of the first sessions done without their guiding light, Syd Barrett. And even though it still has traces of the Barrett style, you can hear the beginnings of what would become the Pink Floyd of later years.

An interesting and somewhat overlooked Pink Floyd single from their transition phase.
