Comments: This is starting to become scarce and is a very good wrap up of early single recordings taken from pristine copies of the vinyl. One of the necessary naughty CD's. BD (#23)

Mastering [very clean] vinyl. REQUIRED. - OSO

A great collection of the first five singles from Pink Floyd, plus one withdrawn single. Mastered from very clean vinyl. Sound varies a little from track to track. For those interested in the early period of Floyd, I guess this is a must have. -TOR

Very good sound quality. This CD presents much the same set as the bonus CD from the Shine On box set, but includes Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream, both of which will most likely never be released officially. The Early Singles CD from the Shine On box set includes The Scarecrow, which this CD does not. -ECM
