In the 1970s there was a little known progressive rock band called Pink Floyd. A group of French Progressive rock musicians and producers decided to get together and see if they could promote this band in a different genre Disco.

Hey presto Discoballs cutting edge disc at the time, I personally don't think time has been kind to this album. For pure novelty this is a fun album. But a new Pink Floyd album its not. Still interesting covers of `Have a Cigar' and `Summer 68' (is this where Rick Wright got is inspiration for has ZEE project?) make it a light bit of fluff. For completeists and novelty fans only.

Just to reiterate everyone else's warning, this really is not a Pink Floyd record. I am a sucker for this kind of Mad Floyd spinoff, the majority of my collection is what record shops call 'Classical' but Rosebud is more to my taste than the Royal Philharmonic's Shine on you Crazy Diamond. If you're going to commit sacrilege it might as well be done properly!

If you are a Floyd fan and someone sneaked a track from this disc into your playlist in the car it would make you smirk. The singing does not really reflect the sense of the lyrics- especially in the case of Free Four, which is odd enough anyway. Main Theme from More is certainly worth a listen as a kind of neglected Floyd track, without seeing the sleeve it would have taken me months to suss to origin of the tune.

...John Peel played Arnold Layne & One Of These Days on his prog, years ago . I had the show on cassette , and these track worked into my mind..................the tape was lost to my distress , but I managed to find and record all the records played.........except these two..................in fact I could find nothing at all about the very existence of Rosebud................. until today !...........I've found them and as a result , have had a great evening ................they have been nagging away at me for years, but no longer.........a happy man am I !

I though i'd balance the reviews out for this one. This is NOT a record for Pink Floyd fans (although I'm one myself - until Syd left, of course) For those interested in Italo and 'cosmic' disco some of this album is up there with Black Disco Club, Goblin, Moroder. What you waiting for!? The version of 'Money' is worth the cover price alone. I play this alot and it DESTROYS dancefloors.

hj ;o)

N.B. Interesting point of fact - this record was produced by none other than those other legends of murky prog MAGMA! WTF?!?

HASH(0x90a55960) out of 5 stars ALANS PSYCHEDELIC BOOGIE!!!!??? 13 Nov. 2013
By wally gator - Published on Amazon.com
In the late seventies everything went disco. First Donald Duck did it, then even Pink Floyd did it, when disco act Rosebud put out an album of all Pink Floyd disco covers in 1977.
There are the obvious first questions, such as what the EFFFFF? But actually, this thing quickly exceeds all expectations as a fine experimental project. Albeit on the disco tip, most of it stays funky enough where, especially if you are a Floyd fan, may wanna boogie your dark side off... The first two singles seem like obviously right choices for such a strange projuect, MONEY and HAVE A CIGAR, covering excesses and greed (everything disco stands for?) I dig the amount of times the disco girls repeat the line "Do goody good Bull****" in a very toungue and cheek manner during the fade out. After that though the song selection gets hella bizarre. First stop disco INTERSTELLAR OVERDRIVE (!) Then ARNOLD LAYNE and even a ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M GONNA RIP YOU INTO TINY LITTLE PIECES that is completely FABULOUS! No disco party should be without. Also SUMMER 68 and the main theme from More, and FREE FOUR (one of my faves)is in the mix too. Too bad there was no Careful With that Axe or Several Species of Small Furry Animals or Atom Heart Mother, but in really, I don't think they went wrong here at all. I still don't understand the title, but I'll just chalk that up to a bunch of designer cocaine. (sic)

HASH(0x908aec00) out of 5 stars How was this put together? 22 Aug. 2013

While I'm lucky to have finally found this record and promptly purchased it, I was taken aback by the way it was put toghether. The songs on the cd did not correspond to the labelling (something that has happened before and which I can easily correct) and the first two songs suffered from chronic skipping. I thought cleaning it might help, but no such luck. Eventually I gave up. It's still there but only for the other songs on the cd.
