Trivia note: around this same time the Best of Tour '72 LP was released in Europe. Omayyad was the 40th in the TMoQ catalog and the first American bootleg about Pink Floyd. It had large success and was reissued and re-bootlegged many, many times due to the excellent (for the time) sound quality and the presence of unissued songs. It was probably conceived like a smaller parallel version of Ummagumma, half studio and half live but the limitations of the length of LP sides couldn't support that.
Pink Floyd were at the International Recording Studios in Roma from 15 November and in London again from 12 December to end of January 1970 where they recorded and produced a large variety of music for the unpleasable supervisor, director Michelangelo Antonioni and his new movie Zabriskie Point. He knew of Pink Floyd in 1966 during the making of Blow Up movie. He really wanted Careful With That Axe, Eugene for the main scene of his new movie. All four surfaced in 1972 with Omayyad. Thanks to Don Hall, now we know that the source used to make it was a multigenerational tape of the FM broadcast. 25 years later the extended soundtrack by Rhino Records gave us four more outtakes. The rest of the known outtakes came out a while later with the first half of the double CD bootleg named A Journey Through Time & Space.

As this album was released in the first half of 1972, the year in which tmoq started using the farm pig label on all of their releases, IT is only the earliest pressings with the 1 & 2 labels. Copies with mottled or swirly vinyl patterns are particularly rare and very expensive.
