"A Collection of Antiques and Curios"

This is a ragbag collection of singles and tracks from Pink Floyd's first three studio albums including The More soundtrack. The cover features a drawing of a Heath Robinson type machine by the bands drummer Nick Mason.

It's an interesting enough collection but there seems to have been very little coordination in putting it together. The singles are welcome and the studio cut of Careful With That Axe Eugene are welcome , but there was no real need to wast ten minutes of space with Interstellar Overdrive (no pun intended), which is fine as part of the first album, but if you wanted it you'ld have the first album.

When it came out on vinyl it was priced as a budget album (99p), on CD it was full price. How can they justify that??

If you can pick it up under seven quid its worth it, otherwise you're being overcharged.

    nice review, could do with bulking it out a bit but it is helpful.

    I'm sorry, but intestellar overdrive's a classic and is no waste of space! I think Relic's is a must have for those discovering the more interesting side of the Floyd (pre dark side of the moon)

    yes Relics is a very apt title - it a Relic of my long lost youth. I have this, Animals and the classic Dark Side of the Moon all on vinyl in my collection. Relics is a hotch-potch of an album produced to cash in on the mainstream acclaim that Floyd were just starting to get after DSOTM. Not sure I'd splash out 7 quid on it now, but I'm glad I've got it - if only for a couple of the tracks on it
