Barrett, Syd - The Madcap Laughs (expanded / remastered)

SKU 28-PRL791223.2
Syd Barrett was the leader, guitarist and songwriter for Pink Floyd during their early psychedelic peak in 1967, penning a bunch of brilliant pieces (and playing amazingly great too). He left the band in mid 1968, a casualty of business pressure and drugs. This is his first solo album, which came out in January 1970. It's a haunting listen; even without reaching for hype, it is simultaneously compelling while being the sound of someone loosing their mind. Backing on 2 tracks by the 1969 edition of Soft Machine (Hugh Hopper/Mike Ratledge/Robert Wyatt). Includes 6 bonus tracks and rare photos, with the package designed by the great Phil Smee!
