The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is the debut studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, and the only one made under founding member Syd Barrett's leadership. The album, named after the title of chapter seven of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows and featuring a kaleidoscopic cover photo of the band taken by Vic Singh, was recorded from February to May 1967 and released on 4 August 1967.
The cover art for Pink Floyd’s début album was, along with The Wall’s and The Final Cut’s, the only Pink Floyd cover art not to be created by Storm Thorgerson or his studio Hipgnosis. This cover was made by the photographer Vic Singh. He made this cover with a lense that George Harrison gave him. Singh was a very good friend of Pattie Boyd, who was George Harrison’s wife at the time. One day, after Vic, Pattie and George ate all together, Harrison gave Singh a lense with the special effect you can see in the photo

Pepper's by a couple of months, nothing could have prepared the world for the magical blend of genius and LSD-induced madness that drove Floyd frontman Syd Barrett's dazzling psychedelic vision. Barrett's cubist guitar riffs collide magnificently with Rick Wright's hypnotic, snake-charmer organ lines amid a dizzying merry-go-round of sound effects. All the while, Syd's equally abstract lyrical approach freely mixes fairytale imagery with cosmic explorations-the ideal soundtrack for journeys through both outer and.
