4 stars This is a nice small packet with the early Syd Barrett era songs, which were originally released as vinyl singles. Many of these tracks are available on other compilations too, so one should consider carefully what albums are ideal to buy in order to avoid getting different albums with same songs. For example, if you have the studio releases as vinyl albums, this could be an easy choice to get the related singles cheaply on a CD. These original vinyl singles have reached unbelievable prices in the markets, hundreds, even over thousand euros. The first two singles are the best in my opinion. "Arnold Layne" is a silly story about a transvestite who steals his drag outfits from the clothes lines during the nights. The B-side song's name "Candy and a Currant Bun" was first named as "Let's Roll Another", but the record company didn't buy it. "See Emily Play" is truly a brilliant psych song, also having a sexual theme in lyrics referring to mysteries of feminine masturbation. The overall mood of the song is hazy and dreamlike, one of the band's greatest achievements. The B-side is a cut from "Piper at The Gates of Dawn" album then.
