3 stars Relics was a compilation of material Pink Floyd produced between 1967-1969, mainly consisting of material off their Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets and More soundtrack albums, plus a few songs that were released as singles (A and B sides) or unreleased material. As I think the subtitle on some releases of this compilation says, its basically a collection of antiques and curios. I don't know exactly why this was released other than maybe to take advantage of the band's steadily growing popularity (even in the States by 1971). Certainly it could have been a better selection as they had produced much more interesting stuff during that time period. Nonetheless, it is a halfway decent album and an enjoyable listen.

I would probably recommend this album to the casual listener that just wants a touch of early Pink Floyd to see if you like it before diving into their first three albums. If you have all three of them, this album probably isn't worth your time. If you are a completionist or collector, yes, you probably should get it. Three stars. Good, but non-essential.
