"Cirrus Minor" was originally released in June 1969 as the first track on the album "Soundtrack from the Film More." More itself, directed by Barbet Schroeder, became a popular cult film in the 1970s due to the fact that the entire soundtrack was recorded by Pink Floyd and also because of the story's counterculture appeal. I watched the film several times on all night weekend Canadian television back in the late 1970s (during what was still a pre-cable TV period in our region). The soundtrack LP was the third studio album by Pink Floyd. For those who did not see the film around the time of its 1969 release and shortly after, both "Cirrus Minor" and track two, "The Nile Song," later appeared on the Pink Floyd compilation Relics in 1971 to the delight of many (this fan included). Written by Roger Waters, with vocals by David Gilmour, Richard Wright shines on this song, using two different organs, a Hammond and Farfisa, the latter lending to a surreal, slightly eerie effect through echoing. The song is pastoral, evoking themes of Nature, but with an overall surreal quality unlike later Pink Floyd melodies of this kind. In my video I apply both definitions of "pastoral" as I can hear strong elements of both.
