The second compilation album by legendary British Psychedelic/Progressive Rock band.
EMI decided to release a budget priced LP on their Starline label, combining early Singles, B-sides, album tracks and one unreleased number, "Biding My Time". The compilation contains material from the first three albums, "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", "A Saucerful Of Secrets" and "More".
"Relics" most noted for its inclusion of the band's first two Syd Barrett-era hit singles, "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play" (this re-release reverts to the original mono mixes of these two tracks). Also were included the B-sides of the three follow-up Singles, with the tracks "Paintbox", "Julia Dream" and "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" appearing in true stereo. The album also includes a previously unreleased studio recording of a Roger Waters composition, "Biding My Time", which had otherwise only been heard by live audiences as part of the Man And The Journey concert sequence.
Despite "Relics" is a compilation and not a regular studio album, it's a pretty good place to start with the band's early catalog. From "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", you get the goofy childishness of "Bike" and the mesmerizing "Interstellar Overdrive" - one of the band's trademark instrumental freak-outs; "The Nile Song," taken from the "More" soundtrack, is one of the heaviest songs the band recorded. A little bit of everything that made early Pink Floyd can be found here. Without a doubt, the disc is an essential part of the band's discography, not to be disregarded due to its overlap with studio album material!!
Pink Floyd Music Ltd./Parlophone Records Ltd., a Warner Music Group Company, 1971/2018 (PFRLP18 / 0190295996918). Made in Netherland.
