UK based label Easy Action is set to release a disc of unheard recordings featuring late Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett. The performance was recorded at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge, England on Jan. 27, 1972.
Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett was the driving force behind Pink Floyd's debut album, 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn' but as a solo artist he recorded more albums than he did as Floyd's lead guitarist, lead vocalist and primary songwriter.
The birth of 'Opel' was because this album included eight songs that were recorded for , but were never included on the first two albums, 'The Madcap Laughs' and 'Barrett'. 'Opel' also includes six alternate takes.
There's not a lot of anything this month that will jump out as 'major', however; with that being said I am going to take you down a journey through the classic rock backwater's and we are going to pan for some rare gems.
