I love this song.  I hear the first chord and I get excited and stop what I'm doing, even though I've heard it a hundred times before.

I have done exactly this, with the same results.  Also the track See Emily Play.

I can't believe how much Roger let David sing on this album.

 
Well yea, because David has a great voice, and Roger struggles to sing well. Sure, he does well on some songs, but even Roger had to know that David was a far better singer (and better bass player as well if you listen to Animals).

well only in the sense that "block buster" usually means "most popular."  Although I bet that the "average" PF fan has purchased the same record more than once, like w/ DSOTM; too bad there aren't stats showing how many unique purchases an album had vs. repeat purchases.

For me, in the cassette tape days when I first started my journey into PF's music, it started with The Wall, graduated to DSOTM, then WYWH, then Animals (i.e. the 3 #1s and the #3) and then into the early stuff and movie soundtracks. 

Fearless and Free Four were two PF tracks I'd ask folks to "name the band" and was surprised how few "Floyd Fans" could do so. 

LONG LIVE RP!!

I saw Pink Floyd at Case Western Reserve University, in a gymnasium, about the time this was released. Although I was completely straight at the time, there was a contact high effect that was inescapable. In many ways, I think this era represents some of the best work they did. Even knowing what came later, this point in their evolution was unique at the time. In some ways, their own fortunes (not monetary) might have been better had they not become so popular. I guess my perspective is based on seeing this group in that setting, when knowing what Pink Floyd even meant set one apart from most people. This was a college gym.

Ah Meddle...a sign of things to come.  This album never gets enough attention.

Is this comparable to the Beatle's Rubber Soul?  

 
...or the Rolling Stones' Between the Buttons if you swing that way.

Divine! I was blessed to hear this song performed to perfection by a local jam band while partying pretty hard at a nearby bar last night.

When I was in high school I had a part time job in a used record store. One Saturday afternoon I took a hit of acid at the store and listening to the first side of this album over and over again until the boss figured out what was going on and sent me home with a copy of the album.
 

 
He understood you needed to listen to the second side of the gem as well !!
This reminds me of one of my days as a student : came to my summer job still totally high after an epic acid night... having listened to Meddle a few hundred times. The boss looked at me in the eyes a veeeery long moment. But he didn't send me home, unfortunately.
