5.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 Stars: Great Psychedelic Pop! June 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I guess I'm something of an oddity, as I love the "classic" Floyd ('Dark Side of the Moon' etc.) as well as the Syd-Floyd. Two different animals i suppose -- like apples and oranges (sorry 'bout that). "Arnold" and "Emily" may sound dated (what doesn't from 1967) but hold up as great pop songs. And I love the lyrics -- "float on a river forever and ever" -- as well as Syd's voice, which often sounds vulnerable in the same way that Gram Parsons' did.
"Candy And A Currant Bun" (originally titled "Let's Roll Another One") is typically great Syd and very catchy (Bowie "Rebel"-era fans, take note). "Scarecrow" is a folkier tune (albeit psychedelic folk) that doesn't quite fit in with the others, but is enjoyable nonetheless (early-Bolan and XTC fans, take note). "Apples And Oranges" is another excellent song marred by poor production and performance -- Syd's terrible sounding wah-wah (the single was released during the Jimi Hendrix tour) and Nick Mason's cymbals are mixed much too loudly, and the background vocals (Roger Waters?) are off-key (attention Dave and/or Roger: how about releasing a remixed version of this wonderful little song, along with the unreleased "Vegetable Man" and "Scream Thy Last Scream"). The Rick Wright tune "Paintbox," although very much "A Day In The Life"-derived, is quite good and fits in nicely with Syd's tunes - much better in fact than Roger Waters' songs from this period. Wright's contribution to the overall sound of these songs -- second only to Barrett's at this point -- should also be credited.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but it's way too short March 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I tip my hat towards the company execs who thought this was a good idea. It really was but they could have easily added on the other two singles from 1968 and that would have practically rounded up the singles since Pink Floyd weren't going to make another single until " they built the wall "
As it is they're 6 brilliant songs that clock in at under 18 minutes. Just can't help but feel you need another 12 more minutes just to feel anyway satisfied. Still it is a nice memento in memory of Syd of the talent he had for writing rather odd pop tunes. Hats off to him
