Review from allmusic.com: “For a long time this was the chief source of unreleased Barrett (solo and with Floyd), but subsequent CD bootlegs like Saucerful of Outtakes and Magnesium Proverbs have made it less valuable. It’s a good roundup of his most famous unreleased performances, though, including 1967-68 BBC broadcasts with Floyd (of marginal fidelity), a couple of solo tracks from a 1970 BBC show, and the short version of “Interstellar Overdrive” that has since been released. Highlights are studio-quality versions of “Scream Thy Last Scream” and “Vegetable Man” that do not appear on many other (if any other) bootlegs, and the splendid color cover photo of Pink Floyd in 1967 (although our hero’s name is misspelled “Sid Barret“).”
