SYD BARRETT, The Madcap Laughs, LP

This is an undated disc of poetry and music that has no era. It could have been released today by some unknown musician, and no one would be the wiser. When I listen to this album of songs recorded by a severely challenged poet/musician at the end of his rope, I get a bit choked up. David Gilmour believed enough in Syd to produce his album. I’ve read that this was an extremely difficult recording to make due to Syd’s declining health and mental abilities to create, remember and concentrate – hence the importance of this collection of songs by a true “Mad hatter”. To this day, Gilmour and Waters miss him with incredible misery, and now I can see why.
