Pink Floyd : Lost Single

Scream Thy Last Scream & Vegetable Man, the abandoned third Barrett/Floyd single in excellent condition here. It was supposed to be the followup to See Emily Play. Never could understand why are they keeping these songs so persistently in the vaults. Ok, the texts are a bit harsh, but that's also the case with many other Floyd songs. They always had that dark edge. Also these two titles were integrated in the group's repertoire (check the BBC Sessions & the live boots from '67). I listen to this quite often and sincerely can't find anything controversial about it, just two great songs and, above all, great guitar playing by Syd. You can almost hear how the rest of the group is struggling to keep up with him! No wonder they sacked him shortly afterwards...
Now, let's say farewell to our beautiful prince of psychedelia...
Scream
