  • VG, except track 7 (Sup)
Comments: The first 6 tracks are taken from a mono audience recording. The sound quality is the same as for the X-refs. Vocals are inaudible, except for "Mathilda Mother". As far as I know, it's the only concert with Barrett that's available (if one excepts the few broadcasts from UFO Club).

Track 7 is the official track that can be found on the "Tonite Let's All Make Love In London" soundtrack. The very first studio version of "Interstellar Overdrive", in fact.

Tracks 8-9 seem to be taken from a single long broadcast that included several older broadcasts. The different interviews are cut with Pink Floyd's music, and the beginning note of "Time" appears several times. So I guess this documentary was broadcasted after the release of "Dark Side Of The Moon". The interviews themselves are much older: they seem to be from 1967 and 1969.

The broadcast begins with an extract of an obscure live performance of "Interstellar Overdrive", and soon one can hear an announcer who speaks about CBC radio, Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.

At 0:32, the "first" interview begins, with a female host talking about Pink Floyd ("new concept of music...") for about one minute. Then, Syd and Roger speak. This interview is the very first interview for CBC, and was broadcast for the first time on February 1967. This interview can be found on other RoIOs, but only the beginning (on "Antiques", "The Sights And Sounds Of Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd" and "Rare", there's an abrupt edit after 3:36). Here, we have the whole '67 broadcast. Syd and Roger talk about their music ("different from academic rock, different from jazz", "we play loudly"), about them ("we don't really look upon ourselves as musicians, as such") and about the visual aspect of the music ("lights, spotlights, movies"). At the end, Nick Mason say some words. At 5:54, the female interviewer introduces the "Pink Floyd managers". It continues with Pete Jenner, on track 9, for about 4 minutes. At 4:04, one can hear the first announcer saying "the voice of Pete Jenner, one of the Floyd's early managers". Then we have the real first cut, that makes me think that the '67 broadcast is in fact track 8 and the first 4 minutes of track 9.

After that, someone's talking about Syd's departure. On the background, the studio version of "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" can be heard.

At 7:10, a speaker introduces Nick Mason and David Gilmour, saying that they'll speak about the "new" Pink Floyd, right after Syd's departure. Nick Mason speaks first. Then there's an extract from "Bike", and Gilmour continues. It seems that he was very _shy_ at that time. On the background, one can hear the beginning and the end of "Cirrus Minor". I think these interviews of Mason and Gilmour happened in 1969, according to the background music, and the very _young_ Gilmour.

A very good RoIO for any Barrett's fan: a concert with Syd, the first "Interstellar Overdrive", and about 20 minutes of interviews about the early Pink Floyd. - MARC-OLIVIER.
