I can see what it is you gave me
In my silent moment

I can hear all that you have sent me
In my silent moment

To be one within you
To be not without you
To be as I once was

I can feel the love that I was missing
In my silent moment

I can be all that I was wishing
In my silent moment

To be one within you
To be not without you
To be as I once was

I like arrangements like this, where the bass takes more of a lead over the guitar.
Not sure but I think the bass line is in line with RAIN by the Beatles

Good tune. The lawyers for Pink Floyd are on line 1 btw.....


Hmm, sure, there's tones of PF there, but that's because they were HUGELY influential. 

I'd say it's more akin to early Stone Roses or Kasabian.

Hell, you get more than a hint of Beatles too, all wrapped up in some mystic guru style Indian music. 

It's jolly good.
The wailing at the end belongs in a different song. 
Good tune. The lawyers for Pink Floyd are on line 1 btw.....
simple and powerful
For some reason, it’s hitting me even more than usual today- bumping from 9>10

Elephant Stone, just like listening to my neighbor from 3 km away…. Long live music from the world!


Beautiful.

I really love this song. They listened to Pink Floyds Remember A Day..........



Unfortunately, they did much more than "listen"...

Fusioned in Montreal.  

Gotta love it when RP introduces me to Canadian music.

I hear "Wa Wa."
Sounds like a Paul bassline, with Enya levels of reverb, but I love this!  
Very cool song

Favorite part of the song for me.

Honest question, generalities aside: Have you heard Remember A Day by PF?

Yes, I hear the similarities but still both songs are rather different. 
Very impressive piece.  Has anyone heard the entire album?

I love this song, don't understand why we can't hear more from this band? 
So near yet so far To be one within you To be not without you To be as I once was I can feel the love that I was missing In my silent moment Beautiful
Blissful... transcendent... beautiful! Thank you so much, RP, for bringing this to my ears! :-)

I'm not sure why, but it seems like every song on the playlist has a "sounds like Pink Floyd" post somewhere in its comment thread.  Everyone hears something different I guess, but there actually was music before PF existed, despite what many here wish to believe.

Brilliant, thanks RP.

Cool song.....too bad we won't be hearing it much longer after the Pink Floyd lawyers get through with them.

Remember the day
WHAT!!!  Well, technically, Montreal IS north of Portland, by about 300 miles, but I'd bet most people would consider Montreal EAST of Portland, by about 2,600 miles.

You thought nobody was listening closely, eh?

But, it is!  It's the "Indie" portion of this Indie Rock tune, I do believe
 

klkm
Suddenly there was Nusrat....sort of
The ending could last another 20 minutes.....
Not sure if it's Pink Floyd, but I agree that it sounds familiar in some way...

The Manchester Sound meets Ravi Shankar.  Always liked this.  More than just this song please.
more from this band, bill!
Nice tune, but some of us old buggers know our early Floyd! 
A nice song to relax to and go within
Love the long Indie/Indian ending. It could last longer for me.

Actually, the opening segment is very reminiscent of Moody Blues... anybody agree on that?
 
Little bit. Bass line certainly lifted from late sixties/early seventies.
Wow, yet another stop what you are doing and listen moment on RP.  Thanks for this one Bill!
Wow, I'm going to have to check out more of their stuff. This is how my P-Tree addiction started all those years ago. RP can be an expensive habit.

I thought old Pink Floyd.
More like this, please!   Another RP find - thanks.
Thanks Bill!

First half is sort of blah pop, but the second half is beautiful. Who's the singer on that?

You best listen to the early Floyd song "Remember A Day"- the melody is lifted note for note. I was sure it was a cover until about a minute in!
 
I did what you said, and there is a definite similarity, but note-for-note?  Don't hear it.  Inspired by directly or indirectly sure.  But hardly plagiarism.  

Oh, and this is a cool song.  Love the Indian influences.  More please!

It's official. I like it.

Edit 29/12/20...And have since bought it!
...but it's growing on me.

I had the volume turned way down and thought it was TUSK by the drum beat.
AaAaAaAaAaAaAaAaaAAaaaa
I kept hearing George Harrison's "Wah Wah" (1970)...and look forward to playing these and Remember the Day (1968) about 50 times.
 Love it when the west eats meet
What is with using 'elephant' in band names? Awful names. Song is lifeless too.

Slowed down? I think sped up. I hope Rick's estate are picking up some royalties.

Cool song.
Incognito "Grapes of Wrath"
This could be growing on me.  Nice synthesis.

So?  What is the rest of the album like?

Any thoughts on the subsequent albums:  The Three Poisons and  Ship of Fools?  
Best thing about this song is the wonderful range of comments it"s generated. They're all a hoot and reminds us why we all love RP.
I like the elephant singing in the end.....   Never knew what they sounded like.
Pretty good but I I i i iiII I I can't get into the last half of the song.
I just like it.
love this! great to dance to
Definitely Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother or Meddle era.  I am digging this song.  Need to buy now.
first impression is not good, but I'm in a mood today...so it might be me

I think it's the keyboards that are Floyd-ish . . .
This is gorgeous...
One of the best tracks ever. The simplicity. If there was perfect, this would be it.

Good new find thanks to RP!
I'm hearing "Remember a day" too, but when it gives way to that wonderful scat singing, its fantaculous.

Love this! Makes me miss and want to hear my old Jagjit and Chitra Singh albums. Makes me miss my Maori mates JoAnne and Andy, with whom I enjoyed listening to that Divine music for hours on end in our rooms at the guesthouse in Thamel, Kathmandu before and after my trek to Sagarmatha in March of '90... Dum, maro, dum, baby -- the chillum was always hot!
Pink Floyd?      Really?   
Same as others - reminds me of Pink Floyd a bit (but in India maybe?)
Certainly sounds like Floyd. 
Nice. Nice, or Pink Floyd? 
Perfect, after Jorma! This time, hearing it from another room, it reminded me of Pink Floyd's "Remember A Day"...the melody, tempo...
Not bad, but was there no copyright infringement case?  Take a listen to Pink Floyd's Remember A Day - the opening vocals are identical.  
The start is ok but I prefer the Eastern turn.
