Syd Barrett – Opel

This compilation of unreleased and alternate take songs, from the Madcap Laughs and Barrett sessions, was approved by Syd himself for release. My 1993 re-issue contains 6 bonus tracks (almost 20 minutes of extra music). A cool companion to his two albums.

 

Syd Barrett – Barrett

His second (and final) album of new material, Barrett is an interesting extension, I think, to Madcap Laughs. My mind just packages them together. It’s a deep dive, but listening is worth it.

 

Syd Barrett – The Madcap Laughs

I’ll admit trepidation about the next couple of posts. Why would I try typing anything about anyone or anything releated to Pink Floyd? This ground is very, very well-covered already, and folks have very definite opinions on every note and second of their history. Who am I to even try, at this point?

Ah well, into the breach…

This is his first solo record after leaving Pink Floyd, from 1970, and (as you can imagine) it’s a wild ride. Somewhere between Floyd, the Beatles, and every 60s garage rock band you’ve heard, and I love it a bunch.

But you’ll probably have your own thoughts, and fair play.
