...any live floyd with syd has gotta be considered as grail for any heads who dig th'psychedelic groove'n not just floyd heads, this is for all cats who entered th'alternate state'n never left, this is th'24hour dream thats lasted for four decades...2 gigs represented here, th'first 6trx from th'star club(copenhagen 9.13.67), th'rest from th'hippy happy fair(rotterdam11.13.67)'n while th'sound quality is as expected(so so)th' outta body experience is topsville...both gigs supply wobbly transformations to th'beyond-limits o' th'marvellous, this is trippin' in dazed confusion, th'R&B that originally informed th'combos work is well'n truely dispelled, headin' off into freejazz outta spaceways bubbles...waves o' sound wash from th'speakers into marshmellow pillows o'hazy groovyness, syd'n his architectural friends're buildin' new sonix into th' musical landscape, a place that hasn't got a name yet, its still part o' pop, it hasn't been usurped'n codified into identifiable consumer product...we can hear vaguely by th'audience response that most don't know what to make o' this new groove thats been placed before them, its beyond entertainment for most, reachin' into th'void, th' future maybe leakin' through...one thing is for certain'n thats these cats weren't no air-fairy teatime sike, they were deliverin' aural colour patterns o' wig liftin' heavy crunch, slabs o' electric-stoned-buzz settin' th'controls for tomorrow...dig th'last two trx(10/11)if'n th'yardbirds(jeff/jimmy version as in blow up) had taken more acid they coulda got to this state o' bein'n there be no real need for zepp'n hence no downer heavy 70s rock...

It's really a pitty that only so few recordings with Syd Barrett exist...
