The first CD offers the really old stuff in very nice quality. I really like the 2010 mixes. Disc 2 has the Stockholm concert which is very nice to have despite the missing lyrics. Even though I am just not into the Syd-Floyd, I guess I will never learn to like that era. John Latham is just pure and utter crap, thank god that was never released before :lol:

I like the 'John Latham' experiment, except for Mason using that studio time to exercise some drum ruffle lessons...
For me, it's an example of how Mason's lack of drum skills is holding Pink Floyd back.
The keyboards and guitars have lots of interesting sounds, if you can listen through that noise of a kid having a first try at drumming. :?

On 'The Piper', I think Mason is doing a great job.
Well, if that's really all done by him (and not by Norman Smith helping him out, as with the ruffle in 'Interstellar Overdrive').

Barrett had Robert Wyatt and Jerry Shirley on his solo albums.
I wonder if Mason didn't want to drum, or if Barrett didn't bother to ask.

But did Barrett even bother to ask Robert Wyatt or Jerry Shirley to drum? Or was that Waters and Gilmour idea?

At least, Robert Wyatt (of The Soft Machine) did his drums when Malcolm Jones was still the producer.

Mason is the only Pink Floyd member not involved in Barrett's solo albums.
Maybe he didn't want to be involved, or maybe he wasn't asked.

That's an interesting observation, along with the one that Nick Mason is the only person to feature on every 'Pink Floyd' album

Based on all that I have read watched or read I get the impression that Nick was probably the most pissed off at Barrett at that time and so likely wanted no part of him after the split and perhaps vice-versa Syd had no fondness for him, if he ever had. Don't know. Mind you, Nick has softened his views over time and is now more generous in his opinions and outlook but back then he was not happy with Syd.

For what it's worth.
