Barrett w/ Pink Floyd albums or singles other than Piper?

Post by Chrysoenlight » Sat Apr 29, 2017 7:51 pm

Hello all. I'm quite impressed at the druggish sound of Piper at the Gates of Dawn, and after hearing the similarly trippy tracks "Vegetable Man," and "Scream Thy Last Scream," was wondering if there are lesser known Barrett w/ Floyd albums, singles, be it only on vinyl, or if at all? I just listened to Cambridge St recently, too.

Also, can someone recommend a similarly druggish sounding group or groups from the psychedelic sixties? Piper at the Gates of Dawn made me weep the first time I listened to it, I thought it was so beautiful.

Have you tried the first two albums by Soft Machine. No idea how druggy (if at all) they were.
Gong were good but came after the 60's.
How about The Stooges? But then not very psychedelic!
Welcome to the forum however.

Barrett Floyd is limited to the album 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' (1967), a few contributions to the album 'A Saucerful of Secrets' (1968) and singles from 1967.
If you add 'Cambridge St' (of box set 'Early Years'), you'll have practically everything if you don't count different versions (performances/mixes) of the same title.

I think The Rolling Stones album 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' (1967) has a much in common with 'The Piper'.
And also listen to the singles they released in 1967. ('Dandelion', 'We'll Love You'.)

You could check out The Pretty Things. Some of their 1960's output falls into the category you mention.
