SYD BARRETT - The Best Of...Wouldn't You Miss Me? CD 01 w MELK WEG CD w MAGNESIUM PROVERBS CD w OUTTAKES FROM OUTER SPACE CD w A TREE FULL OF SECRETS 21 CD 10 (320 KB/SEC) - added 'The Madcap Laughs' CD 70

 A top listen for me with Syd over the years, I got some of these from record shows but the first picture I got as it was released in 2001 because I fell in love with the 'Octopus' tune that made the RADIO K weekly top 7 for months and months and was played all the time.  It took a good while yesterday to first find a decent 320 kb/sec posting then downloading it of the boxset listed last above.  I also pulled out over my 2 weeks vacay my Pink Floyd CD's too of what were left (had given a couple cool ones to my little brother long ago) before Christmas to give to a guy next door in our little work strip mall who comes over for coffee as he always gives our office presents and I had not done that--so I ripped my Floyd and Syd for him and gave him a 4 Tb hardrive of all my movie rips.  Hell, it only took a few minutes to load up at Gofiles so have at it!!!!

Much thanks for this plethora of Pink. And particularly the Syd stuff. I'm a huge fan. Just because I am a fussy bitch (as anyone who knows me) I wonder what happened to the first three tracks on the first Roger Waters disc. Or is it mis-numbered?

Anyway, you certainly gave me something to go through today!

Good to have you back, hope you had a nice holiday.

Hi EricC!
Thanks for nice sentiments and hope you enjoyed the holiday as well. You know, I haven't even had time to look at the Boxset download so good feedback. It was at 90% downloaded last night before I left work and I leave my computer on usually and a screensaver eventually kicks in. Even though it said 100% this morning, perhaps log-in screen kicked in before completion and those tracks got missed. Not really wanting to go through that ordeal again but maybe someone has them. Cheers!

If it said 100% then it's a problem with the original rip. S'ok, there is a LOT there.

I added 'The Madcap Laughs" today to the Syd Barrett post. Cool that you are a big fan like me. Viacom

I bought it on vinyl (yeah I'm old). I have the double LP reissue of Barrett/Madcap Laughs (so I'm not THAT old, but close).

Piper is my favorite Floyd LP, add the singles and it's one of my favorite drive mixes. His solo stuff can be jarring, but some of it is so beautiful.

Added my Pink Floyd collection from Good Will and my old CD's from the days when CD started..favorites like MORE and Obscured By Clouds.
