  • Pink Floyd achieved their greatest success after their enigmatic leader, Syd Barrett, left the band. Originally released in 1971, RELICS documents the transition from Barrett's LSD-influenced psychedelic rock to Waters' manic-depressive psychedelic rock. The organ-laced "Arnold Layne," and "See Emily Play" with its harpsichord break and nonsensical lyrics, are representative of the mod-pop music coming out of London circa 1967, at which Barrett excelled. The instrumental "Interstellar Overdrive" hints at the type of extended space-rock jams that Roger Waters and the rest of the band would seize upon once Barrett left.
  • Keyboardist Rick Wright contributes two tunes, "Remember a Day" and "Paintbox," showing that he was coming into his own as a songwriter before his creative voice was squashed by the overbearing Waters. By 1971 it was clear that Pink Floyd was Roger Waters' band, with the occasional contribution by one of the other members, most notably guitarist David Gilmour.

The problem with compilations like this one is that they are excellent for people wanting a recap of the bands preveious material but it includes just enough previously unreleased tracks to incite fans to buy it. If you are fan, it's possibly worth getting for the three previously unreleased tracks but not for this price. Buy it somewhere else for $10, there are plenty of places around that sell it cheap.
