The best Floyd CD. By Far.,
This review is from: Relics (Audio CD)
Although Relics is a compilation the tracks hang together in ways more satisfying than the bands first two albums.
Here are some gripes:
1. This CD offers a stingy package for a reissue. There is plenty of space on the CD format for gems which could not be squeezed on to the original vinyl. What about "It would be so nice" a great little song that was astonishingly equaled by Raymond (Captain Sensible)The Power Of Love. And what about those early blues numbers "King Bee" and "Lucy Leave" It would be so nice to give guitarist Bob Klose acknowledgement.
2. While the slick photograph of the model based on Syd's [Error see Comment] art work is a worthy endeavor it does not have the charm of the original pen and ink drawing which graced the original album.
3.A sub par re-master.

The original artwork was in fact a creation of Nick Mason and nothing to do with Syd.
