2 stars A rare 30 minute blast of Prog Rock's finest sees the Floyd machine banging out one old psych nugget after another. The rarity of the vinyl is the only drawcard as the songs are not the band at their best by any stretch of the imagination. Chapter 24, Mathilda Mother, come from the debut, and then Arnold Layne, Candy And A Current Bun and The Scarecrow are perhaps the most well known from the follow up.

The songs are well known and not rare at all but the packaging is. Julia dream and See Emily Play are the highlights for me though this is a raw unrefined Pink Floyd. The compilation has Barrett's batty banter looming over proceedings. The album comes in many packages, various sleeves and track orders but really this is a treasure from the 70s vault and only for collectors who must have anything associated with the band.
