Syd Barrett Dark Globe Choral Vocals

SYD BARRETT DARK GLOBE CHORAL VOCALS



There are actually two versions of this song:
  • Dark Globe (July 27, 1969 - Choral Version. Peter Jenner 1974 Echo mix)
  • Dark Globe (July 27, 1969 - Choral Version. Malcolm Jones 1987 Clean mix)
Both versions of Syd Barrett Dark Globe are two sides of the same coin. The ‘Choral’ addition refers to Syd’s delayed double tracked vocals. The main difference between the two is that the 1987 version is somewhat tighter and wider than the 1974 version & clearer to listen to. The 2nd difference is that in the ‘74 Mix Barrett's singing voice is heard quite clearly over the multi-tracked vocals where as on the ‘87 mix the two voices are brought closer together in the mix the difference is not so obvious. The session log seems to omit the fact that there was a session on the 27th of July so we either have to assume that there was no session & the tapes are wrongly labeled ( and the 26th of July was the actual last session ) or the 27th was when the mixes of this track were submitted.

Below this is another version and the LP version:

Such a great article it was which the main difference between the two is that the 1987 version is somewhat tighter and wider than the 1974 version & clearer to listen to. In which the ‘Choral’ addition refers to Syd’s delayed double tracked vocals. Thanks for sharing this article.
