syd is (did you guess?)one of my heroes, so why the low rating? Well, this is an odd collection which omits some of his best songs whilst including some weaker ones (swan lee, for example) and i would advise buyers to go for either the double cd of the original two solo albums ("the madcap laughs" and "barrett") or the triple cd which couples the afore mentioned with the out takes album "opel" (there's not much to write home about on opel). BUT this album is doubly annoying because it includes the reputedly excellent and long lost track "bob dylans blues" which has never been released before and which i have never heard. AND THAT MEANS I WILL PROBABLY BUY IT AND I HATE THAT!!!
cleverer people than me might be advised to hang back on that though because there apparently exist a few more lost tracks (not to mention the unreleased floyd tracks) and these are bound to come out on another collection soon.
However, his best work is what he did with Pink Floyd on their early singles and "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" album. The ideal Syd Barrett tribute would include some of this material, as well as the unreleased gems "Vegetable Man" and "Scream Thy Last Scream". Those two tracks are far more interesting than the only previously unknown track included here.
Still, the music is good but this compilation could have been better.
