  • The gifted leader of the earliest incarnation of Pink Floyd, and the mastermind behind the peerless psychedelic pop of that group's PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN, Syd Barrett's playful, subtly deranged musical sensibilities inspired an entire generation of British songwriters. His brief but inspired solo career, and subsequent retreat into seclusion and obscurity, have only amplified his already considerable popular mystique.
  • WOULDN"T YOU MISS ME compiles 22 tracks from Barrett's two post-Floyd solo records for EMI as well as a handful of rarities from the outtakes collection OPEL. Though these spare, often chaotic compositions are a far cry from the tightly wound psych-pop of Floyd tracks like "See Emily Play," they are possessed of their own undeniable dark grandeur. Barrett completists will need this collection for its inclusion of the previously unreleased "Bob Dylan Blues."
