In August 1974, Peter Jenner convinced Syd Barrett to return to Abbey Road Studios in hope of rekindling his career. However, little became of the Syd Barrett 1974 sessions, which lasted three days and consisted of blues rhythm tracks with tentative and disjointed guitar overdubs (the only titled track is "If You Go, Don't Be Slow"). Unbelievably, the original plan was that over this period, Syd would make an album: do the guitars in one day, the bass the next, then the drums and keyboards, and on the final day he'd sing. However, it seems that nothing got any further than a few guitar and bass overdubs. (More...) -Original
