4 stars First Floyd double album and one of the first ever. First disc contains live material recorded between April and June of 1969. Quality of sound is good and the music quatily is even great. It's fine documentary of early live Floyd. Second disc contains solo work of each band member. It was an idea by Rick Wright. So each of them recorded about 12-13 minutes of material with better or worse (I don't like this word) result. My favourite is Dave Gilmour work called Narrow Way parts I-III. First part resemble a folk instrumental. Second is a dark and grim instrumental with interesting theme. Third part is a dark song with very good atmosphere. Waters offered us folk ballad Grantchester Meadows and experimental thing with longest tittle ever - Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict. Wright's part includes avantgarde piano composition - Sysyphus. Mason gave us composition managed on several percussion instruments.

Generally - album is good.
