I think the remixes and the alternate version of MM make this an excellent album. Matilda Mother in particular sounds like an entirely fresh song.

I think 'She Took a Long Cool Look' is a bad remix.
The gap in which Barrett stops playing is horribly filled with some guitar work of another Barrett recording.

'If It's in You' and... no 'Jugband Blues'??

I would have liked a cleaned up remix of 'Rats' and 'Swan Lee'.
And a better mix of 'Clowns and Jugglers'.
See my comments about this in the 'Opel' topic.

And where is 'Living Alone'?
Does this recording still exist?

And I would have loved to hear an overdubbed version of 'Opel'.
I think 'RPWL - Opel' gives a nice impression of how an overdubbed 'Opel' could sound.

(There's also a version by 'Full Dimensional', which seems to unavailable on internet.)
Maybe some fans can make an overdubbed version, using Barrett's original?
