Pink Floyd : The First 3 Singles, as you can imagine is somthing like a compillation of some of their earliest tunes, when Syd Barrett was the lyricist, guitarist, singer and leader of the band. Because of that, here you will find 6 Barrettīs songs, except for "paintbox" which was written by Wright.

All these songs were done in the late 1967 , in that period when "Interestellar Overdrive" was a psychedelic hymn, 15 minutes of acid sound, but these songs are not in the same way, the songs here are more pop oriented of course with the classic psychedelic sound. all of them are short songs, (in fact the albumīs lenght is less than 20 minutes), with crazy and at the same time beautiful lyrics, musically is not the best of Pink Floyd of course, but here we can appreciate their earliest works, their earliest ideas, their unique 1967 sound.

Musically i have nothing more to say, short songs, my particular favorite is "Candy and a Currant Bun", i like it so much, it has a very special sound, with great tnes and that acid and insane guitar and keys as a background, "Arnold Lane" and "See Emily Play" are both classic Floydīs songs, you can find them in "Relics" or "Echoes". If you are a new Floyd fan, i know that probably you love them because of DarkSide, The Wall or Wish You, but if youīre a real fan, then try this album,and you will know that particual and early Pink Floyd sound.

I like it, but i recommend it only for fans, maybe prog lovers could enjoy it, but itīs not that good, thatīs why i think 2 stars is good for this album. Only for Fans.! But Good!
