Syd Barrett: Confusion and Mr Barrett

Chris Welch, Melody Maker, 31 January 1970

SYD BARRETT is a
happy, creative if
somewhat confused
young man, who gave
the Pink Floyd hits and
headaches when still in
the group of his own
creation, and after
many months of slightly
mysterious obscurity
has returned with an
extraordinary solo album of odd, eccentric songs.
