Question Syd Barrett

I can´t find any solo works from Syd Barrett in the request list.
Isn't it there?
I´d love to listen to his very schizoid pre-prog music here on AM. One could say that his songs don't fit much in the progressive rock genre. I think they really do, and also think that his lyrics are gems in prog history.
What do you think?

Albums suggestions:
-Madcap Laughs
-Barrett

I've never heard any Syd Barrett solo, so I can't say it's AMness, but I'd love to hear it (Well, I did hear a part of a song on that one episode of X-Files - sounded extremly trippy).

With song titles like "Effervessing Elephant" I think Trippy sums it up perfectly.

Well, in fact, i don't know how much of his works are really solo ones, because they must have been done at the same time as his Pink Floyd works, and some of his songs sounds like the ones from "The Piper At the Gates of Dawn", what makes evident the participation of others from PF, at least in his homonymous"Barrett", better arranged and produced.
But "Madcap Laughs" sounds even more personal, because it's mainly accustic. Short and deeply sad songs, but strangely beatiful and very psychodelic.

PS. Did it appeared in the X-files? I must have missed it...
