The Pink Floyd In 1967
It's very dufficult to talk about Syd Barrett without saying something which hasn't been already said many times, about his talent, his visions, his mental illness, his disappearance from the musical scene. I'd just like to beg all Syd's fans not to try to go in Cambridge to meet him and talk to him. Please respect his choice to live a quiet and retired life. Roger Keith Barrett is now a 60 years old man who doesn't like to remember about his days as a rock musician in London. Let's all remember about Syd for the few marvellous songs he gave to us.
This live version of Astronomy Domine is probably well known by most fans, here it is for the few ones who haven't seen it yet. It is maybe the best early Pink Floyd's footage, along with the London '66-'67 DVD. The video is part of the Look Of The Week program, broadcasted by BBC-2 in May '67. The quality is excellent, it's just a pity that the Floyd had not the possibility to improvise much as they used to do in that period, but it attests anyway the visionary strenght of this music.
