    General CommentYes, Vannaroth, it Exists. It is on the Zabriskie Point soundtrack (with a few other Floyd tunes). 'Number 51' is a studio version of 'Careful With That Ax, Eugene'. (Less heavy than on Ummagumma, but more creepy, and more keyboards).

    General CommentApparently, this song is Careful With That Aze, Eugene in E minor (instead of D minor, as in the original). This makes for a more apocalyptic feel to the song, as opposed to the eerie haunting sound of the original.

    General Commentjust changing the key D minor to E minor won't make it more menacing

    General CommentPersonally I prefer this version of "...Eugene", especially the screams; they carry more emotion. This is one of my favourite five instrumentals of all bands.

    General CommentThis is one of the best versions of Careful With That Axe, next to the Pompeii version.
