Banners for 'Barrett' book.

2 interesting images here for the new book that's about to come out. Kiloh didn't seem too keen on getting one yet, I had some spare cash though just before Christmas and have already paid for mine. So as soon as I get my copy I shall be reviewing it here. I was a bit wary earlier when images were released of some of the pages being printed. The number of already seen images was a bit too much for my liking, but these 2 new shots here have renewed my enthusiasm. I now can't wait to get my copy. I mean, who cares if some of the images have been printed before? By all accounts, the image quality will blow away anything we've seen before.

Anyone place this photo of Syd used here? Or is it one of the new photos they've uncovered? I think it's a new one.

This is definitely a new photo, obviously taken in a photo booth. Both these photos look like they are of GREAT quality, like they could have been taken yesterday. Can't wait to see what the book's like.

I will keep you updated with any developments via this page and look out for my review of 'Barrett' when it finally gets released.
I'm not RICH so I will only be reviewing the 'PAUPERS' edition, my pocket won't stretch to the 'MORE MONEY THAN SENSE' edition. Though if someone from the publishers wants to send me a review copy then I'll be more than happy to have a REALLY quick flick through it and write a few words on 'ere about it! ;p (though the book will, unfortunately, be unreturnable!!)

Not 100% sure, but I'd guess the second photo of Syd may have been taken during his time spent at Highgate, London in early 1967. Except for the pattern on the necktie/hankerchief and background curtain, he looks sweetly as he did in the same photos that are already published during January 1967!
