Review: Pink Floyd – The Early Years 1965-1972

pink-floyd-early-box

By Dave Thompson

In many ways, this is the box that nobody thought we would ever get.  In fact, it’s probably the box that nobody even thought of asking for, until the first rumors began whispering around the Internet.

Pink Floyd have, after all, long since acclimatized us to the concept of the Immersion box set, a single album spread out over a heap of further discs exploring sessions, live cuts and out-takes.  Of course the smart money was on each of their core albums at some point being granted a similar release.

The only real question was, which would come first – the Barrett Years, which everyone seems to want; the Animals years, which the hardcore are gasping for; or the middle years, which would wrap up everything between More and Meddle, which was really one for the completists.

Well, Animals remains on the back burner.  Everything else is here.

Well, not quite everything.  After all, with a mere twenty-eight discs to play with, you’re not going to fit on all that a heart could desire.  So, none of the actual albums – you have to buy them separately.  Boo, hiss.  Instead… out-takes.  More out-takes.  Even more outtakes.  Early singles.  Out-takes from the time of the early singles.  Live cuts.  More live cuts.  Even more live cuts.  Videos, TV performances, concert footage.  The kind of package that fans of bands rarely even dream of.  Except in their wildest dreams.

And to say it’s brilliant is probably an understatement.

The track listing is doubtless already engrained in the mind of everyone who cares.  (But in case it isn’t, it’s at the end of this review).  And then there’s the plethora of ephemera, the repro 7-inch singles, the sheer weight of documentation that’s included… there’s close to fifty old tour programs, posters, cuttings, photos, and more wrapped up in here.  Sadly, they overlooked the marbles and coasters this time, but we can probably live without them.  Particularly as the former were essentially a Floydian in-joke, designed to give the Dark Side of the Moon immersion box an extra layer of laughter.  (But only if you lost them.)

Eleven CDs, nine DVDs and eight blu-rays are the heart of the box; that’s getting on for 250 tracks, of which… okay, the bootleggers got in on a lot of the content, but never with such phenomenal sound quality.  But cut out the score-or-so tracks that were late sixties singles or which sneaked onto various samplers and soundtracks, and you’re not simply hearing a couple of dozen albums’ worth of unreleased Floyd, you’re coming across surprises even when you thought you knew what to expect.

A whole different vision of “Jugband Blues,” hidden behind a “2010 mix” tag that utterly belies the fact that this comes close to the mix that Syd Barrett wanted released, only to be over-ruled by producer Norman Smith.  A likewise disguised “Matilda Mother” that isn’t simply a different performance, it has a completely different lyric, too. A heap of Zabriskie Point out-takes to which the bootleggers, it seems, assigned their own titles, restored to reality and here heard with shattering clarity.

The 1967 BBC sessions are captured with a fidelity that can’t disguise the fact that they’re not necessarily first generation recordings, but are still cleaner than any you’ve met before.  And that’s just for starters.  Every disc trips over another legend or seven from every page of the Floyd sessionography, from the rejected soundtrack sessions to the latest John Latham movie (you can decide whether he was right or wrong), to the lost The Man, The Journey project, that devours disc nine.

You want to know what “Echoes” was like while it was still a multi-part work called “Nothing”?  (Fairly boring, actually, but we move on.) You want to hear their soundtrack for The Committee, bereft of the movie itself?  Here you go.  And then you can watch the movie itself, alongside More and La Vallee (Obscured By Clouds), projects which are infinitely more familiar as records than slabs of blu-ray art.

A startlingly vital 2016 remix of the Obscured By Clouds soundtrack; a live jam with Frank Zappa; the Pompeii show in 5.1?  They’re here.

Atom Heart Mother in quad, and a soaring live rendition of the title track that blows out its studio counterpart in bubbles?  Check.

“Point Me at the Sky” with an ending that goes on forever?  Interviews, documentaries, quaint forgotten TV performances, a full Barrett-era live show, and perhaps the two most mythologized tracks in the entire kitbag, “Vegetable Man” and “Scream Thy Last Scream,” end-of-Syd-age out-takes that again have been booted out of the wazoo, but have never sounded this good.

Nothing here has.

First impressions do occasionally get restless as another bowl of noodle soup is delivered around the midway mark, and one longs for some out-takes from “Several Species of Small Furry Animals” to break things up once in a while (but they don’t).  But then you come across… for example,,, the animation commissioned for “One of These Days,” or the Brighton 1972 performance of “Careful With That Axe,” or – out of sequence but fitting perfectly – a 1974 live performance of “Echoes” and all is deliriously forgiven.

And that is why you’re probably not going to read a truly coherent, considered, review of the whole shebang for at least a week after its release this Friday.  Because it’s going to take that long to even listen to the whole thing, let alone begin to digest it… land much less place every performance into the context of the events we know surrounded it.

Even a band as notoriously insular as Pink Floyd did not exist in a total vacuum, particularly throughout the years when they were not only doughty road warriors, hanging with the Who in diners across America, but were also premiering new material in concert, long before it reached the studio.

Famously, that luxury ended when a bootleg of three new songs appeared before they’d even finished recording Wish You Were Here (and necessitated a complete rethink of that album’s eventual contents).  Prior to that, though, the road was Floyd’s rehearsal studio; their peers were a major part of their audience; and, while other bootlegs allow you to trace the gestation of any one of several dozen songs through the rigors of nightly performance, here we hear many of those same tracks at what the band themselves appear to consider the most crucial, or informative, stages of their development.  Which isn’t to say there may not be even more fascinating versions that aren’t included here.  Just that those that are here are here for a reason.

Likewise, mythology will continue to insist that there’s treasures that have not been exhumed, and possibly there are.  From the Barrett era alone, the absence of “I Get Stoned,” “Sunshine,” “Early Morning Henry” and, most notorious of all, “Have You Got It Yet?” will loudly haunt those places where the trainspotters gather, even more than the absence of any physical evidence that recordings even exist.

Indeed, long before the box’s contents were published, sundry forums were alive with suggestions for what could… nay, should… be included, and for every wrong guess they made, well that’s another complaint for them to mumble for the remainder of their lives.  Where’s “the rest of the 1965 recordings?”  Or even the ‘’’66” ones?

Where, indeed.  Perhaps the friend of a friend who assured you they’re out there still has them locked in a box beneath his bed.

What is important is, at a time when these super-duper-deluxe boxes are becoming less of a luxury and more of a plague (coming soon, a 200 disc collection of every note Brian Eno thought about recording between 1984-1987… and can you even believe that the Beatles aired out their whole archive with a paltry half dozen CDs?), Pink Floyd have engineered a collection that relies upon neither the neuroses of the completist nor the demands of the demented for its heft.

Yes, songs are duplicated (eleven different versions of “Atom Heart Mother” is a lot by even the most forgiving standards) and, of course, the blu-rays simply double up the contents of the DVDs, so you’re really only getting twenty discs, and a heap of coasters after all.

But perhaps the goal here was less to let the collectors tick everything off the wants list, than it was the creation of a box set that not only tells its story, but does so in the most entertaining manner possible, and across two very separate narrative threads as well  – the CDs for the sonics, the DVDs/blu-rays for some amazing visuals.  And no matter how many, or how profound, the omissions with which the creatures of the deep might beset the box’s compilers, the fact is nothing of which we’re truly aware could make any difference to what is already here.

Yes, they might be holding onto something remarkable for the Ummagumma immersion box.  There may be some unissued orchestrations hanging around from the “Atom Heart Mother” sessions.  And, of course, there’s that whole album’s worth of proto-Piper out-takes that I may or may not have just invented.

But it doesn’t matter.  Pink Floyd have just unleashed almost twice as much new music in one box than they did throughout their entire career as recording artists.  And almost all of it (the last CD sweeps up sundry loose ends that exist in less than stellar sound) is as immaculately performed, produced and presented as the very best of all those classic albums.

Forget whether or not you like the Floyd, or even think they’re deserving of a package like this.  In terms of content, care and quality, it is quite possibly the greatest box set ever released.  And it sets the bar unimaginably high for anyone hoping to top it.
