Comments: BBC broadcast.

A brilliant CD. The best sounding record of the '70 BBC session. Carefully remastered with NoNoise to eliminate any noise from the underlying vinyl source. Only a 10-second drop-out of one stereo channel on 'Careful..' reminds you that this is no official release. Even if you are not a friend of roio's you must have heard this version of 'Embryo' at least once ... or you are not a Floyd fan! -HERWIG

They don't get any better than this. This one and 'One Of These Days' (also TSP) is the ones to have from the BBC sesions in 70-71. Only thing is a couple of small errors on track 3, but that doesn't drag down the overall impression of this CD. Times are from CD timer. Highly recomended. -TOR

This is, no doubt, the best version of Embryo. It also includes a very good combination of Green is the Colour and Careful with... . Have you maybe heard a Radio voice which says "Careful with that axe Eugene, classic Pink Floyd recorded in the Summer of 1970. Just a year... . Well, that's not included in this recording. 105% recommendable.
