Pink Floyd again collaborated with ‘More’ filmmaker Barbet Schroeder to create the soundtrack to the film La Vallée, which became the band’s seventh studio album, Obscured By Clouds.
Pink Floyd's Obscured By Clouds marked the band's second collaboration with filmmaker Barbet Schroeder, following 1969's More. Released in the late spring of 1972, when the band had already begun the writing process for what was to become The Dark Side Of The Moon, Obscured By Clouds was originally intended to be a series of broad audio pieces that could be edited into the final cut of the film, but instead ended up producing a full selection of fully-realized songs, including "Free Four" and "Childhood's End".
Recorded at Strawberry Studios in Hérouville, just outside Paris, in a mere two weeks, it shows the group performing as a tight integrated unit. Tracks include Wot’s… Uh The Deal and Free Four.
