Review: Stoned Alone
ItĂs a bit nosey recording but all the same a hell of a great recording! I really love this version of ˘stoned alone÷ aka reaction in G, the first song On the roIO The historical relevance of the recording should not be over looked, it must have been quite exciting at the time to hear these guys laying down the foundation that would inspire many musicĂs to come. Hear this and realize that Syd Barrett was not only a fine writer of wonderful pop tunes, but a hell of a great guitarist, that Syd and the band were Exploring some brilliant heavy stuff live. These noisy versions of Scream, Astronomy, Reaction in G, and One in a Million are absolutely essential. -clovethee@yahoo.com

Comments: Although there is a tremendous amount of hiss, the sound of the music isn't too bad; unfortunately there are absolutely no vocals. Maybe if you turned it up full blast you might hear some, but you might go deaf first. Given the rarity of Syd-era recordings, this is probably the same recording as on the Starclub Psycho roio.

Track 8 is the 1966 CBC (Canadian) interview. Track 9 is taken from sometime after they recorded More, but the exact date is unclear.

The 9/13/67 gig is slightly longer and much better quality here than its prior appearances on vinyl (a la Mystery Tracks) and CD (a la Starclub Psycho). If you want to hear an early Floydian gig, this would be one of the better disks you could find. One other thing worth notice is that the vocals are (of course) very difficult to hear for the first few songs. As the gig progresses, things get (slightly) better.

ENJOY IT ;)
