This was released as the B-side of the single, "Point Me At The Sky." The title is a reference to the first line of that song: "Hey, Eugene, this is Henry McClean."
A shorter version of this song appeared on the Relics compilation in 1971. (thanks, Jim - Oxnard, CA, for above 2)
There are minimal vocals in this song: just the title whispered, followed by a maniacal scream by Roger Waters. Pink Floyd used this scream again at the beginning of "Another Brick In The Wall (part II)
" and throughout "Run Like Hell
." (thanks, Andy - Bellevue, WA)
Ummagumma was a double album, with one disc of live performances and the other record divided into four sections devoted to songs by each band member. This track appears on the first disc as a live version. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
As a 5-year-old, Brandi was writing lyrics to instrumental versions lullabies. She still puts her heart into her songs, including the one Elton John sings on.
Loudon Wainwright III
"Dead Skunk" became a stinker for Loudon when he felt pressure to make another hit. His latest songs deal with mortality, his son Rufus, and picking up poop.
