This review is from: Barrett: The Definitive Visual Companion to the Life of Syd Barrett (Hardcover)
This book is an absolute must have for a Syd Barett fan. A beautifully bound and presented book full of exquisite reproductions of rare Pink Floyd photos, private unseen moments, letters to loved ones and of course Syd's paintings. It's extremely moving. Rob Chapman's book A Very Irregular Head is the definitive textual reference --researched and written with thoroughness and respect-- and this is absolutely the definitive visual effort. We finally have a publication which shows Syd as the artist and as a prolific creative force. Yes Syd's mental deterioration was instigated by chemicals --coupled with an aversion to the stresses of become famous and the demands of 1960's music industry demands-- but you will see there is much, much more to understand than the shallow myth. Syd the person; Syd the boy, the artist and the creative soul. Magnificent.
