Description
(c) 2014 Parlophone Records reissue. Once again the production chores are handled by Pink Floyd mainman Dave Gilmour whilst other musicians like the Floyd's Roger Waters and Rick Wright plus Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt also guested on "Barrett". The album effectively ended Syd's short but sweet career by being released to complete indifference at the time. Also Syd's taste in song titles probably didn't help either with such gems as "Baby Lemonade", "Rats", "Gigolo Aunt" and "Effervescing Elephant" not exactly pandering to the commercial marketplace! However, since it's abject failure first time around, both "Barrett" and "The Madcap Laughs" have since found a much more devoted audience who are ever curious about what led Syd to depart the successful Pink Floyd and venture into the realms of the unknown with his solo material. Well now you can discover Syd's story first hand on 180 gram vinyl as it was originally intended! A cult classic.
