Barrett (1970)

Barrett is the second and final studio album of new material released by former Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett. Recording began at Abbey Road Studios on 26 February 1970, and lasted for 15 sessions until 21 July. The album was produced by Pink Floyd's guitarist David Gilmour, who also contributed on bass guitar, and features contributions from fellow Pink Floyd member Richard Wright on keyboard and previous Madcap contributor Jerry Shirley on drums.


Was a member of Pink Floyd from 1964-1968, and wrote most of the songs on the band`s debut album "Piper At The Gates of Dawn" (1967).


During the taping of the band`s appearance on "The Pat Boone Show" (1967) in 1967, he was so stoned that he couldn`t even lip-sync his own vocals, much less mime his own guitar playing (bands playing on television in those days would often mime along to their hit records). Syd instead stood, staring stone-faced at the camera. Eventually bassist Roger Waters began lip-syncing his vocals.
