Syd Barrett - The Peel Sessions mp3 album

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 and keyboardist Richard Wright, who also contributed on bass guitar and keyboards respectively, along with previous Madcap contributor Jerry Shirley on drums.

Only for completionists (13%). This album was actually only officially launched in 2004 with a few extra tracks (an alternate take of 'Baby Lemonade', as well as versions of 'Dominoes' and 'Love Song'), and with a different title, "The Radio One Sessions". The sound quality on these three extra tracks are pretty poor, in fact even worse than the initial five.

Reviews about Syd Barrett - The Peel Sessions (2):
One of the better productions of Syds work, I guess the BBC knew what to do to get a recording. Syd's songs could benefit from this kind of production and additional instruments to beef them up. Just another twist on the mystery
Syd Barrett & John Peel combined make this one of my favorite records.
