Editorial Reviews

Syd Barrett was one of the most enigmatic men in music. Through the formation of Pink Floyd, to creative genius, to his shocking slide into increasing psychiatric illness, we chart the rise and fall of the original Floyd frontman.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Die-Hard Syd Fans Only! January 21, 2008
I enjoyed the disc and book, although some of the material is also on the
Piper At The Gates Of Dawn DVD. Not the place to start for new fans, but a
Syd obsessive will appreciate the removal of Roger Waters from the Hans Keller interview, more information on Syd's state of mind at the time he recorded his solo albums, and the absence of the critics and their opinions, which, for such a small body of output, was often redundant and
unnecessary and speculative on previous similar discs. What is needed is for a DVD which includes all known Syd footage, free of the talking heads and cutaways, and inclusive of what Pink Floyd have in their archives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up Close And Personal March 31, 2008
Syd Barrett - Up close and personal

This dvd has other people close to Syd tell their story of what happened when knowing Syd in his time spent with pink floyd and his solo projects. One thing that stands great for me was the work of David Gilmour with Syd and how much care he had for Syd. This is a deep explanation of the story of Syd Barrett. The book is very informative but its things i already knew. Still it was good to have. The dvd was not a let down. It shows that Syd was a rebel from his up bringing. Maybe even spoiled as a child. Even though he still got the musical point across. He didn't want to lip sink his music and always wanted to move forward and not repeat the old stuff. The lyrics speak for its self. When he was good, he was bad. His breakdown was brought to my attention a lot more from hearing what his friends at the time were telling their story. Syd seemed to shut out his so called friends in the studio. He may have picked up on their vibe from past and present.
