PINK FLOYD The Later Years ( UK limited edition track double LP pressed on gram Heavyweight Vinyl comprising a 'highlights' package of tracks selected from their expansive disc boxset, including remixes of unreleased studio and live recordings. Complete with an exclusive 24 page booklet, both discs are BRAND NEW & unplayed housed in the gatefold picture sleeve which.
But there is none better to show an example of pure pysch-prog bliss than Interstellar Overdrive. This was the beginning of the prog epics with wonderful effects-laden mysteria, unbeatable and brilliant for its innovative construction and original approach.
Syd Barrett was never better than this. Its all here in one glorious package. Of course if you already have the 2 early albums, you needn't bother with this, though the packaging is great if you can pick it up for a decent price.
Highly recommended though if you dont have these albums already! I give it 3 stars as there is no new material, but its worth grabbing hold of for collectors and the material alone is worth the price.
For me personally this was a way of getting hold of the first two releases by Pink Floyd at a reasonable price and I greatly value my vinyl copy of "A Nice Pair". Add to that the fact that both albums featured on the compilation are great genre defining works of psychadelic rock, and "A Nice Pair" becomes an even more interesting release. This double lp was released to get new fans of the band to listen to the old psychedelic works of Pink Floyd. On most versions the form of the albums are left intact, but there are said to be differences.
For me this was the perfect way to find the first Pink Floyd albums on vinyl, mainly Pipers has become a little more different to find.
The artwork with it's strange photos of this compilation is also quite nice. I've already written reviews of the first two Pink Floyd albums, but I'll write a summary here. The first Pink Floyd albums are essential for the development of the psychedelic and space-rock genre.
On the first album the psychedelic song-writing of Syd Barrett is the main attraction. His child-like lyrics and out of the box composition is almost unmatched. Saucerful of Secrets continues with less song- writing of Barrett and more spacey and psychedelic passages. Buy if you are a starting vinyl collector interested in the early phase of Pink Floyd or if you see yourself as a completionist when it comes to this band.
Both albums deserve four stars, but I'll give this release three stars because it's a compilation that has no value to add to the Pink Floyd catalogue. An album dominated by Syd Barrett's songwriting and singing with only two tracks being composed by all the members of the band, "Pow R.
It also sounds a bit "primitive", with not a very good production and recording. It seems that producer Noman Smith still had some problems then to try to understand better the music and the ideas of the band in their first album.
But the best songs in this album for my taste are "Astronomy Domine" and "Bike". But this first album as a whole is not one of my favorites from the band. The second LP in this compilation is their second album titled "A Saucerful of Secrets", which was originally released in June It is better than their first album, in my opinion.
With the personal and mental health problems from Syd Barrett, this album was recorded during a problematic time for the band, with them trying to survive as a band without their main songwriter and leader.
So, they invited David Gilmour to first assist them to play the guitar in some concerts, with Barrett still in the band, and later to finally replace him on guitar and vocals in concerts and in their singles and albums.
First, the band wanted to keep Barrett in the band, still hoping for him to recover. But finally it didn't happen, and Barrett had to leave the band, with him still appearing in three songs in this second album "Remember a Day", "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun", and in his own song, "Jugband Blues".
The band had a five musicians' line-up for a very brief time in early with some photos from this period in existence before they realized that Barrett could not function as musician, songwriter, lead singer and leader in the band anymore. Wright and Waters tried to replace him as songwriters and lead singers, and they had success, in my opinion. This album is still very Psychedelic, but much better recorded and produced by Norman Smith.
My favorite songs from this album are "Remember a Day" originally recorded for their first album and "See-Saw", with both songs being composed and sung by Wright. A good compilation album which never was released on CD as long as I know. With both albums being individually available on CD with their original covers since a long time ago, maybe "A Nice Pair" is now more remembered for the cover design than for anyhing else, I think. A very collectable gatefold cover.
But maybe it is also remembered as an historical item for the most dedicated fans of the band. The album consists on an economic package that includes their debut studio album "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", released in and their second studio album "A Saucerful Of Secrets" released in , together in only one package.
This is a very interesting compilation because it includes two indispensable musical works of the band at a very cheap price, what would be a very worth purchase, in those days. However, for those who have already both albums, it might be a nice addition for all vinyl prog collectors. Those two albums represent, someow, the two faces of the same coin. Here we have Pink Floyd more psychedelic and Pink Floyd more space rock. Here we are in the presence of two great albums that, somehow, symbolises the end of an era and the beginning of another one.
As I've already reviewed these two albums previously on Progarchives, in a more extensive way, I'm not going to do it again. So, if you are interested to know, in more detail, what I wrote about them before, I invite you to read those my both reviews. However, in here I'm going to write something about them in a more short way. So, of course, I'm not going to analyze them track by track, as I made before, but I'm only going to make a global appreciation of both albums.
It's the only studio album under the leadership of Syd Barrett and it's also, practically, the only studio album with his participation as a band's member. It's true that he also appears on their second studio album "A Saucerful Of Secrets", but his participation was seminal, with only one song. It's also, in a certain way, a Syd Barrett's album because he writes almost of the songs and is also a mythic album for those who loves this Pink Floyd's musical period and Syd Barrett's music.
However, we can't really say that it's a true progressive album. Nevertheless, it remains a true landmark on the psychedelic music and it must be seen as a fundamental piece of music and a great representant of the end of the 60's.
But it's also an important musical document that clearly shows the beginning of the mental instability of Syd Barrett, with his disturbs, that would be in a short term to become a breakdown and a serious problem to be resolved by the group. So, this is a very unique and special album. Musically, it's a very different album that shows a new musical approach in relation to their previous studio work. Despite have many psychedelic parts it has also, for the first time, the beginning of the fundamental elements of their future space rock sound, which only would be firmly consolidated on their sixth studio album "Meddle".
This is, in my humble opinion, a more adult and mature musical proposal than their debut studio album. Sincerely, I don't think the main difference on the music of this album be the presence of the guitar sound of David Gilmour. It's true that we can feel its presence on it, but he only co-wrote a song on the album, and I'm convinced that the main difference is Roger Waters. Roger Waters is the main musical composer of the album and I think this is the capital difference between this two initial works.
But, one thing is sure. If Syd Barrett had continued as a band's member, we would be in the presence of a different band with different music. I think the problems would appear if both continued in the group. Whereby we know of the personality of Roger Waters, he wouldn't want to stay in the shadow of Syd Barrett.
So, sooner or later, both would enter in confrontation, and one of them would be forced to leave the group. It's probably best recommended for newbies, not the Pink Floyd newbies but the newbies of the psychedelic music. I must confess that I don't have this compilation. I have the two vinyl records and the two CD's too. However, I knew it since I was a teen and it represented also my first contact with these two albums, because a school friend lent it to me at that time.
If you have the two studio albums in two individual records, you don't need to buy this compilation because it hasn't anything new to offer, like bonus tracks, unless you have a collector vinyl spirit or you are a hard Pink Floyd's fan. Doesn't look as if it's ever been played, even has original insert promoting other Pink Floyd records.
