Voiceprint is proud to release the US and Canadian version of The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story
Syd Barrett was an influential and sophisticated musician who captured the spirit of an era. His abrupt departure in 1968 brought to an end the first incredible period in the Pink Floyd odyssey.

Bohemian artist, poet and visionary Syd joined Pink Floyd in 1965. He succeeded in creating a wholly original sound and together the band helped to forge the British psychedelic scene.

This unique documentary depicts the band¹s epic rise to fame under Barrett¹s influence, to his premature departure in a drug induced haze and ensuing psychological problems.

Lavishly illustrated with rare early footage of the band performing, along with new interviews with the members of the band - David Gilmour, Rick Wright, Roger Waters and Nick Mason - and their associates, fans and friends including Jerry Shirley (Humble Pie), Graham Coxon (Blur), Robyn Hitchcock and original Pink Floyd member Bob Klose.

Featuring legendary early Pink Floyd songs Shine on you Crazy Diamond, Interstellar Overdrive, Arnold Layne, See Emily Play, Bike and more.

The DVD contains an extra 23 minutes of extra footage not aired on the original VH-1 TV broadcast. In addition this version is different to the other versions of the DVD as it contains and an extra chapter of "memorabilia" and exclusively designed artwork by world renowned fine artist Mark Wilkinson.
