I've heard on a radio that a tape containing a live exhibition of a band I havan't caught the name taken in 1972 has been purchased for 5K$ by a label. They don't say when, but this year it will be released on CD. It contains three Syd Barrett's previously unreleased songs (they say never listened before). Barrett was just a guest on that night, anyway I assume that the songs they mention are not Scream Thy Last Scream or Vegetable Man.

I'll see if I can find more info.

I think it's this:  1972-01-27 Last Minute Put Together Boogie Band gig, Corn Exchange, Cambridge (Syd - guitar, Jack Monck - bass, Twink - drums, Fred Frith - guitar, Bruce Paine - vocals & guitar)

According to David Parker's excellent and relentlessly detailed record of Syd's work, Barrett played 4-5 shows (the last unconfirmed) in January and February 1972, at 3 locations all in Cambridge.  There is no set list for the 1/27 show.

However, on 2/24 he played his last confirmed gig at Corn Exchange with Monck and Twink as part of a group dubbed "Stars."  The set list for this show was: Octopus, Dark Globe, Baby Lemonade, Waving my Arms in the Air, Lucifer Sam, Blues Jam 1 and Blues Jam 2. 

Parker notes the mention of a second gig on 2/26 but couldn't confirm it, thus he concludes the one above may have been the last show.

Reading the name, Last Minute Put Together Boogie Band is what the radio mentioned.

Yes, which is some of the same guys as Stars...Monck and Twink were in all of the Jan/Feb gigs...there was a different 2nd guitar in some of them.

Mmm... if the songs were recorded live, then they can't be "never listened before".

Good point. Probably the speaker knows me and was meaning "never listened before by me" Smile
