Barrett is the second solo album, joining The Madcap Laughs as a solid representation of Barrett's innate tunefulness and bizarre, surrealist imagery.
With 14 tracks spanning 1968 to 1970, including six alternate takes and eight songs that had never been officially released in any form, it is equally as essential as his two 1970 LPs.
Released: Jan 3, 1970
Released: Mar 27, 2001
Longtime fans might want to exercise some restraint, especially since those still-unissued outtakes are being released water-torture style.
