--------------------------------------

This set was compiled from the best available sources. Fan-made mutli-disc sets such as 'Have You Got It Yet' were not used. These sets tend to be over-processed for mass consumption. This set is mastered from an audiophile standpoint. Mono material appears in true mono and not re-processed stereo. There was no additional echo or ambience added. Noise reduction was not used on any material. Hiss was often reduced with judicious equalization. I have tried to present the best sonic experience possible without compromising the integrity of the source material at hand. If you need just one consise Syd Barrett bootleg in your collection, then this would be the one.
