For those of you who may not be fully up to speed on your 60s prog rock trivia, Syd Barrett was the primary songwriter, guitarist and original lead vocalist of the first incarnation of Pink Floyd. The new album, An Introduction To Syd Barrett, is a collection of tracks from Barrett’s two solo albums, as well as some of his early Pink Floyd material.

David Gilmour, who originally worked on Syd Barrett’s two solo albums, as co-producer of The Madcap Laughs and as producer of Barrett, is the executive producer for the album. Damon Iddins and Andy Jackson at Astoria Studios have remixed five tracks including ‘Octopus,’ ‘She Took A Long Cool Look,’ ‘Dominoes,’ and ‘Here I Go,’ with David Gilmour adding bass guitar to the last track. Pink Floyd’s ‘Matilda Mother’ also receives a fresh 2010 Mix. Brand new artwork, including a 20-page booklet with brand-new graphics and all lyrics, has been provided by long time Pink Floyd associate Storm Thorgerson and his estimable studio.

An Introduction to Syd Barrett track listing and contest entry form after the jump. Contest ends December 6, 2010 at midnight, US residents only, 1 entry per household.
