Released on October 4, 2010, this is the first compilation of Pink Floyd tracks together with Syd Barrettsolo material. It includes all the song lyrics for the first time on any Syd Barrett album, plus a brand-new package by Storm Thorgerson’s StormStudios, including new photography, graphics and illustrations.

There have been a number of Syd Barrett compilations but, remarkably, 2010’s An Introduction to Syd Barrett is the first to combine Pink Floyd material with his solo recordings, so it truly provides an introduction in a way no previous collection has. It’s possible to quibble that there are a few Floydsongs that should have made it here — mostly selections from The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, including “Astronomy Domine” and “Lucifer Sam,” but this favors the non-LP early singles “Arnold Layne,” “See Emily Play,” and “Apples and Oranges,” which do point the way toward such solo cuts as “Octopus,” “Baby Lemonade,” “Terrapin,” “Gigolo Aunt,” and “Effervescing Elephant,” all present and accounted for here. Some may also quibble about inclusions of new mixes for “Here I Go,” “Octopus,” “She Took a Long Cool Look,” “Dominoes,” and “Matilda Mother,” preferring the original mixes, but these new mixes don’t call attention to themselves nor do they detract from the first disc to provide a strong, conciseintroduction to Barrett’s twisted genius.
