AllMusic Review by

A collection of outtakes and experiments from the vaults of the Pink Fairies, Pretty Things, and Deviants drummer and all-around U.K. psychedelic legend is reissued here after appearing as Odds & Beginnings, Vol. 2. Italian reissue specialists Get Back present this along with The Never Never Land and Think Pink Demos and The Lost Experimental Recordings; all three are essential insights into what a profound influence Twink had on the U.K. underground of the late '60s/early '70s. A version of "Tomorrow Never Knows" is worth the admission alone, and features the complete Pink Fairies lineup taking the Beatles' tune a step beyond. Varying fidelity on the nine tracks make it a somewhat patchy collection, but the quality of material and energy makes up for it.
