Syd Barrett – Baby Lemonade

Another brand new video, this time of Syd Barrett’s ‘Baby Lemonade’ from his second and final solo album, ‘Barrett’. ‘Baby Lemonade’ was written and recorded by Syd Barrett in 1970 and is the opening track on ‘Barrett’. Dave Gilmour and along with Richard Wright produced the album, as well as performing guitar, bass, organ and piano on the album. The album takes a different direction away from the erratic style of ‘The Madcap Laughs’, with ‘Barrett’ adapting a more commercial sound, due to the influence of Gilmour and Wright. While ‘Barrett’ is a much more tighter and focused album, it still contains elements of Syd’s bizarre nature. The recording took less time to produce than ‘The Madcap Laughs’, and the final album was released in November 1970. Unfortunately, the album sparked no interest and failed to chart. Between 1971 and 1974, Syd Barrett attempted several music projects, including a band in 1972 called ‘Stars’. The band was short-lived after only three live performances. In 1974, Syd Barrett recorded for the last time, recording only a few instrumentals before walking away from music forever. Most of the images used in this video were photographed by Mick Rock in 1970. I do not own the copyright for the audio or vision. This is a fan edit done under the ‘fair use’ provision laws.
