Comments: The back of the jacket includes the following text:

"...affectionately known to his friends as Syd. Syd had three brooding interests at this time: religion, painting and music. When the visions of inner light of the Sant Saji faith were denied him on account of his age, he began seeking chemical enlightenment. Gradually he evolved his obsession with Soma paintings into the idea of painted sound, a principal theme of Pink Floyd's light shows devised by projectionist Jo Cannon, who was often considered the fifth member of the Floyd.

Along with the somewhat more esoteric and jazzy Soft Machine, Pink Floyd were at the core of London's avant garde before they released their first single, "Arnold Layne", in March 1967. It was a typically bizarre Barrett effort and was soon banned by the usually sympathetic Radio London on the grounds that it promoted the use of drugs, thus enshrining Pink Floyd as the first media martyrs of psychedeliana Anglica."

Also a quote from manager Andrew King and it lists the following as Syd devotees: *David Bowie* and *Blue Oyster Cult*

The songlist printed on the jacket is:

1. RAVING and DROOLING (I fell on his neck with a scream) A.K.A SHEEP




Which is essentially correct except when you pull out the records they have *GOOD TIMES* labels that say *BACK IN 69* and SIDE A-D. Also, side C *fades in* a ways through SoYcD, and has Have A Cigar after it. Side D starts with Time - just after the bells - and includes GGitS and Money. The vocal quality on the record is poor, with *dry* vocals (no effects at all) that are obviously strained at times. The mix has room for improvement as well, but I've heard a lot worse. The music is great (great Dave solo on Money) and I can believe IT IS the 1975 Boston Garden concert. -- ALT.MUSIC.PINK-FLOYD
