33) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Syd Barrett-'The Madcap Laughs'
It does amaze me sometimes when I come across an album in my collection that hasn't been played on this part of the show. Friends, family, and long time listeners know my infinity for Pink Floyd, and it is a little shameful to me that I haven't played a solo recording from founding member and original singer of the group. Certainly since he has passed on. I like his compliations and his first solo album, but I would say that 'The Mapcap Laughs' is my favorite album from the late Mr. Barrett. This is truly an amazing album from one of the greatest songwriters of any era of pop music. Much like The Beatles, this his last true studio recording was released a mere few days into the 1970's. Truly the close of an era. One that just precided your humble narrator and theh droogs as well.
