2 stars Released only on vinyl as an LP in the mid-seventies, this little known compilation by the FLOYD is out of print and fairly rare to find. Containing almost essentially the same songs as that found on "The Early Singles" bonus CD in the 1992 "Shine On" Boxset, this release is purely for collectors and completely non-essential.

The only difference from the aforementioned "Early Singles" CD is that "Masters of Rock Vol. 1" has two "Piper At The Gates of Dawn" songs, 'Matilda Mother' and 'Chapter 24' instead of the much superior and harder to find 'Point me At The Sky' and 'Careful With That Axe, Eugene'.

For collecting purposes this is great to have, but if you're looking for an 'early' FLOYD compilation, go and pick up the more appreciated fan favourite "Relics".
