4 stars Can this be considered just a compilation? Think to me in the vinyl age, far from UK that was the center of the music in Europe and with no internet. Without any possibility to find obscure sigles released years before and never printed out in my country this album was the first opportunity to listen to the Pink Floyd's songs unreleased on album that I knew existed but have never heard before.

I knew of these songs because the lyrics were printed on a book, the same whose author tried to guess the lyrics by listening to the songs and made some incredible errors, one for all the one that generated an urban legend on St Tropez ("ringing by phone" became "Rita Pavone" a pop artist famous for an omonimous song).

So I had the opportunity to listen to Julia Dream, Biding My Time and Arnold Layne, to have a studio version of Careful With that Axe Eugene and to relisten to some classic songs. Only I wouldn't have included the songs from More as I find them out of context here.

This is a fundamental album for who wants to know the early Floyd and not only for Syd. Juila Dream is one of the first songs written by Waters and the first matching his future style.

One mention goes to the sleeve design. The picture is known for having been drawn by Nick Mason, the last tribute to his architect's career.

4 stars
