2 stars Pink Floyd before Pink Floyd

Before their "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn",released in 1967, Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rado Klose, Richard Wright,Nick Mason & Juliette Gale (choruses on one track), or as we all know as PINK FLOYD, recorded this untitled material which is now presented as their first recording. It was originally released as a limited edition set of two 7" vinyl records and consists now of 6 tracks. Five original songs by Barrett and Waters, and one Slim Harpo cover ("I'm a King Bee").

As for the music itself, it shows clearly the sign of the times in its songwriting. Playing alongside mainstream and not wanting to sound "squarish", one can easily sense the inevitable rhythm and blues influence, which in those days represented an underground and contagious musical freedom for almost all Rock n' Rollers down in the UK.

Because of the same, now in 2015, this will hardly sound as daring as it sounded back then. The Yardbird's had already started this kind of experimental and electronic/acoustic Rock music based on rhythm and blues songwriting, as the Rolling Stones who were also traveling these roads.

To cut it short, it would have taken a real great fortune teller to foretell the brilliant future that this band will eventually achieve, by just listening to this highly collectible (unimpressive) EP for future hard core Floyd fans.

**2 by the book "Collectors/fans only" PA stars.

Undoubtedly, this is a histor ... (read more)
