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.
