4 stars Like so many progheads on this site I grew up with the Pink Floyd albums "Dark side of the moon", "Wish you were here", "Animals" and "The wall". In the late Eighties I discovered the beauty from the Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd because of a friend who was very much into the Sixties. In fact you cannot compare the music from the late Sixties PF and the mid- Seventies PF, there are hardly similarities.

This special CD showcases the talents from Syd Barrett and the exciting and unique blend of pop, rock and psychedelia from The Pink Floyd. The contribution from Syd Barrett is huge: catchy, melodic, tasteful and varied compositions ("Candy and a currant bun" is clocking only 2.46 but what a compelling atmosphere and great shifting mood!), pleasant and distinctive vocals, simple but strong guitar work (R&R inspired) and humorous but sometimes also a bit weird lyrics. The rhythm- section sounds creative and often propulsive and a special flavor is added by the psychedelic sounding organplay, many times halfway culminating into short but excellent soli.
