* BadExportForYou: The first two American releases of ''Music/ThePiperAtTheGatesOfDawn''. The first was a butchered version with added and deleted tracks, similar to the way Capitol handled the pre-''[[Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand Sgt. Pepper's]]'' [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] albums. The second was the double album set ''A Nice Pair'', which was a reissue of the band's first two albums. The album version of "Astronomy Domine" was replaced with the live version from ''Music/{{Ummagumma}}''. Americans couldn't get a proper version of ''Piper'' until the CD era in TheEighties.

** Music/RogerWaters suffered from the bandís mainstream success following ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon'', especially during the 1977 ''In The Flesh'' tour. The audiences became much bigger, and a lot noisier Ė the old psychedelic fans tended to keep quiet during the numbers, but the mainstream fans often spent the whole gig baying for "Money". The culmination of this came on the final show on 6 July 1977 in UsefulNotes/{{Montreal}}, where Waters stopped during "Pigs on the Wing (Part II)" to deliver [[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Roger_Waters#Miscellaneous this]] [[ClusterFBomb blistering]] tirade, and at the end spat in the face of a particularly disruptive fan he'd been irritated by (the incident and his subsequent thought about building a wall between himself and the audience inspired ''Music/TheWall''). The resulting crowd surges and heavier crowd control techniques also made their mark: the bursting door, riot police and dog patrols portrayed during the "In the Flesh?" concert sequence in ''The Wall'' were all based on things he had witnessed while they toured stadiums in the US. Other negative issues were driven to the surface, including his disgust at the greedy bureaucrats who ran the record industry (particularly explicit in "Welcome to the Machine" and "Have a Cigar"), his anger at the leaders who send men (like his father) to die in wars, and despair at society in general.[[note]]in a late 1970s interview he said that the seventies had been "a very baleful decade", and was worried about what the eighties would be like (in retrospect we know that the spirit of the eighties turned out to be even less in line with his world-view) -- the "knuckles white upon the slippery reins" line on ''Music/TheFinalCut'' sounds like it's quite apt for Waters himself[[/note]] Ultimately, it drove him to leave Pink Floyd. Heís now much less unhappy working a solo career and playing to more specialised audiences.
