"The Final Rehearsal" has finally landed amongst the various different CD versions of these new tapes having been released to the general ( underground ) public.
The Godfather Records has managed to find the full rehearsals & will also be submitting these to CD this month. However as the Godfather release has had judicious editing performed to make the rehearsals sound whole I suspect these are from the cut up tapes that were released just prior to the full thing. We'll keep you updated as to the sound quality ..
Also recently released are "Astronomy Domine" & "Remember A Day" on the Swingin' Dog label. Each fitting under a banner of their respective years - either 1967 or 1968.
The track listing for "Astronomy Domine" brings us various early PF tracks that almost seem to mirror AA's Barrett release from earlier on this year although these LPs are all pressed on black vinyl as opposed to the coloured vinyls that AA use.
"Remember A Day" is more of a mixed bag. The A side features three tracks broadcast on Dutch TV & played in Rome in 1968. The B side features Dave Gilmour's televised tribute to keyboardist Richard Wright on 'Later With Jools Holland' in February, 2008. The remainder of the side is made up by various mono mixes from 1968's singles & the remaining Barrett written track from A Saucerful Of Secrets.
The sleeves are the usual glossy, hi-shine production using era correct photos & are pressed on solid, heavy vinyl.
