5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great debut albums, BUT . . . . ., 22 Oct 2011
This review is from: The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn [Discovery Edition] (Audio CD)
So much has been written about 'Piper' there's not much point in me adding my ha'penny's worth, though it remains one of the great debut albums of all time in my opinion (along with 'In the Court of the Crimson King' and 'Led Zep 1'). But there's a 'but'. There's already much speculation about possible 'Experience' and even 'Immersion' editions of this album (either singly or, in the case of the Immersion ed, paired with 'Saucerful'), so why buy this now? I think enough time has elapsed now that Piper shouldn't be treated as some kind of holy artefact that cannot be sullied with (whisper it) bonus tracks or even a bonus CD. There's an awful lot in the can that could result in a 'Piper Era' package, rather than Piper on its own. BBC Radio 2's 'The Record Producers' programme (2011) gave tantalising glimpses into the 4track originals of 'Arnold Layne' and its flip side, proving they're being investigated. I (and zillions others) would far rather the remaining members of Floyd bury any misgivings they have and allow as much as possible from the band's earliest days to be put out there.
