Zabriskie Point is a soundtrack album to the Michelangelo Antonioni film of the same name. It was originally released in January 1970 and is composed of songs from various artists. A 1997 re-release includes four bonus tracks each from Jerry Garcia and Pink Floyd that were used in the film, but not the original soundtrack.

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd's contributions to the album were recorded in November and December 1969, after the release of Ummagumma. "Come in #51, Your Time is Up" is a re-recording of "Careful with That Axe, Eugene," originally released as a b-side in December 1968. "Love Scene (Version 4)" is a Rick Wright solo piano composition. "Country Song" is a ballad filled with chess metaphors. "Unknown Song" (also known as "Rain in the Country") is a relaxed instrumental. "Love Scene (Version 6)" is a bluesy instrumental.

Pink Floyd also recorded other unreleased material during the same sessions. Most notable is another Rick Wright composition that would later be reworked into "Us and Them" from The Dark Side Of The Moon.
