1 stars This short DVD elicits strong emotions from friends and fans of Barrett alike. Some feel it's a brief historical moment that should be documented, like anything else. Others feel it is downright exploitative, sensationalist and mean spirited garbage that should not be available in any form. What you will see is Syd and some friends participating in an art school project filmed by another friend, in 65 or 66 (I've seen both dates noted.) They wander around supposedly high although they may be just playing-some folks claim this isn't even real-that it's just acting for a film project. It's essentially a home movie like the ones in your attic, with people goofing around. Except this one happened to have a famous person in it and so someone decided to cash in. This footage is followed by the Floyd filmed the day they signed to EMI in early '67. It's a very short DVD of marginal quality that is clearly for hard core fans and collectors, if anyone. There is no sound other than some dubbed music (not Floyd) over it. The DVD is less than 15 minutes long total. Recommended to no one save absolute Barrett fanatics.
