Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story Expanded For Reissue

03/27/2014
.
Eagle Rock has announced that they will be releasing the 2001 documentary The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story as a new 2-DVD set and on digital video on May 20th.

The new release will feature Dolby Digital Stereo, will include some additional bonus material and will run for 214 minutes. We were sent over the following synopsis for the film:

The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story explores the tragic, yet celebratory life of the late Syd Barrett, lead guitarist and prominent songwriter of early Pink Floyd. With contributions from all members of Pink Floyd, as well as managers, friends, and others close to Syd, the documentary traverses the tale of this enigmatic rock legend, from his intelligent, thought-provoking songwriting and indelible stamp on the psychedelic music genre, to his 1968 departure from the band, when his increasingly erratic behavior made his continued participation in the band impossible. This 2DVD set also includes the additional interview "Roger Waters On Syd Barrett," and a second disc with bonus uncut interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright, and a performance of "Love You" by Graham Coxon.

Pink Floyd was revolutionary, pushing popular music into new cerebral dimensions, and Syd Barrett was an integral part of the band's sound and lyrics. A charismatic cult figure with a flair for eccentricity, he crafted such unique hits as "See Emily Play" and "Arnold Layne," as well as album tracks such as "Bike" and "Astronomy Domine." His use of dissonance, feedback, and distortion in his guitar playing has inspired generations of musicians. After leaving Pink Floyd, he recorded two solo albums before vanishing from music altogether, retiring to his English hometown of Cambridge. Fans and reporters continued to travel there to seek out the reclusive Barrett until his death in 2006, at the age of 60.
