Have You Got It Yet? The Story of Syd Barrett & Pink Floyd - DVD/Blu-ray/DigitalJust announced: the DVD and Blu-ray, and digital release, of Have You Got It Yet? The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd is coming on July 19th, 2024.

The critically acclaimed - and fan acclaimed - documentary film Have You Got It Yet? is a compelling dive into the life and genius of Syd. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Roddy Bogawa and the late, acclaimed album cover designer Storm Thorgerson, the feature length documentary drew praise for its candid glimpse into the prismatic character and artistry of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett.

Released in cinemas worldwide in Summer 2023, Have You Got It Yet? achieved a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a successful theatrical run with many sold-out screenings. Intimate interviews with band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters uncover Barrett's ongoing impact on the group. Going a step further, the film also includes an interview with Syd's sister, Rosemary Breen. Narrated by actor Jason Isaacs, the film also features original band managers Peter Jenner and Andrew King, as well as The Who's Pete Townshend and Blur's Graham Coxon.

In addition to the full-length film, the joint DVD and Blu-ray set includes a plethora of bonus features. Two poignant live performances of Arnold Layne are highlighted – the first features David Gilmour & David Bowie (originally released in Gilmour's Remember That Night Live At The Royal Albert Hall, 2007). The second is a performance from 2007's The Madcap's Last Laugh – a tribute concert held at London's Barbican for Syd Barrett featuring Gilmour, Mason, and Richard Wright in their final performance as Pink Floyd.

Additionally, the DVD and Blu-ray includes an interview with Bogawa and director & producer commentary of the film with Bogawa, Rupert Truman, and Julius Beltrame. Further exploring his creative works, the set features discussions surrounding Barrett's paintings, and spoken word performances of Barrett's lyrics by comedian Noel Fielding (Dark Globe), poet Rob Fitterman (Rats) and actor Gerard Bell (Lucifer Sam). The package, designed by StormStudios, is completed with an exclusive Have You Got It Yet? poster, which was also designed by the studio.

The documentary is a fascinating and moving look at Barrett and we heartily recommend it. It's great news that it is finally getting a physical/digital release, enabling those who are yet to see it, the opportunity.

UPDATE: we have had confirmation from those behind this release, that there is NO region coding on either the Blu-ray, or DVD, so both should be playable worldwide. Great news indeed!
