2 stars After the success of The Dark Side of the Moon, record executives apparently popped out from behind their big fat desks with dollar signs (or British pounds if you like) shining from their eyes. And thus came A Nice Pair, a repackaged 2-LP release of Pink Floyd's first two albums, essentially with the same tracks. Apparently it sold quite well as Pink Floyd now had many new fans and this release must have met their demands. Although I could imagine newcomers to the group listening to this and wondering if they bought the wrong album as there was quite a large difference between the 1967-1968 and 1973 sound of Pink Floyd.

This was never released on CD (as far as I know), so it really isn't worth seeking out since their first two albums are quite readily available. This would have been a recommended purchase back in the vinyl record days as it was cheaper than buying the two first LPs separately. Today it is only for record collectors, mainly for the interesting photographs that are all over its covers. You can probably find it really cheap in a used record store. Two stars.
