Recently Announced is a new book featuring an analysis of all works by the late Syd Barret.
Despite just a three-year tenure with the band, co-founder Syd Barrett’s influence on Pink Floyd was profound and long-lasting. If his guitar gave the early Pink Floyd a distinctive hallucinatory sound, his often obscure and surreal lyrics were perhaps even more intoxicating.
The complete lyrics of Syd Barrett – 52 songs written for Pink Floyd and during his subsequent solo career – are presented together for the first time, along with rare photos and artwork, to form this beautifully illustrated 99 page book.
Compiled in collaboration with the Syd Barrett estate, and featuring a foreword from former Pink Floyd manager Peter Jenner and a comprehensive introduction by biographer Rob Chapman, The Lyrics of Syd Barrett delves deep into one of rock’n’roll’s most imaginative and searing minds.
The book will be published and available on the 18th February 2021, In Conjuction with The Flood Gallery who happen to be the first retailer to feature this book, are offering an exclusive print bundle, Featuring a Syd Barrett (Cream-Main Edition) poster.
