5 stars As Close as you can get to hearing Pink Floyd's "lost" album.

The only now official version of this lost masterpiece allegedly appears in a cleaned up version on disc 236 of the Early Years. For those without several hundred pounds to pay EMI there is a choice; either track down a bootleg of the 1969 Amsterdam Concert or buy this recreation of the masterpiece by RPWL.

Sonically in a different league to the bootleg and sounding uncannilly like a facsimile of Pink Floyd, this live Album is outstanding. Many listeners and indeed many PF cover bands ignore anything before DSOTM but what a shame (something that the two disc early years focusses on to its credit).

The Man and the journey was essentially a 'best of' the early years segued into a concert - cymbeline, green is the colour, Eugene, grantchester meadows, bits of saucerful etc.

And RPWL have not only recreated it perfectly. They have brought it to live and invite - like the Early Years - a detailed study of this pre-superstardom phase.
