1 stars This is insanity ! How dare this be called a "Best Of" ? If you take out their two hit-singles "Arnold Layne" (Nr. 20 or 28 according to the sources) and "See Emily Play" (Nr. 6) both in the UK charts and "Mathilda Mother" there's nothing from the other world here. I do not have this album as such but I know all the numbers.

WHAT ANNOYS ME THE MOST IS THAT THIS COMPILATION IS MADE OF ALMOST SYD'S WORK (SEVEN OUT OF 10 SONGS) AND THAT HE IS NOT EVEN FEATURED ON THE FRONT COVER !

This scandalous "thing" will be reedited in 1974 with another cover still with Syd unfeatured under the title of : "Masters Of Rocks".

I know how David and Roger were close to Syd, so how could have they accepted such a thing ? I have no clue. This should deserve zero star for this scandalous approach, but since it is not possible I will raise my rating to one star.

I will post the same review for "Masters Of Rocks" not to count one more review but only with the purpose that this fact will have more exposure amongst Floyd fans.

RIP Syd.
