A newly remastered version was released in 2010. Initial sales and reaction of Barrett’s first solo album, The Madcap Laughs, were deemed sufficient by EMI to sanction a second solo album.
The session producers had no verbal contact with Barrett, having only communication to him via Gilmour. For the radio session, Gilmour and Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley accompanied Barrett on bass and bongos, respectively. Barrett had sung the opening verse three times.
Barrett played slide guitar on the radio version of “Baby Lemonade”, with Gilmour on organ. Two days later, he began working on his second album in Abbey Road Studios, with Gilmour as producer, and a trio of musicians: Richard Wright, Shirley and Gilmour himself. The main aim for the Barrett sessions was to give Barrett the structure and focus many felt was missing during the long and unwieldy sessions for The Madcap Laughs.
On 6 June 1970, Barrett gave his one and only official solo performance, at the Olympia in Kensington, backed once more by Gilmour and Shirley. At the end of “Octopus”, the fourth number of the set, Barrett baffled the audience and his backing musicians by abruptly taking off his guitar and walking off stage. The first session was on 26 February, three of the first songs—fully recorded—attempted during the session were “Baby Lemonade”, “Maisie” and “Gigolo Aunt”.
However, Gilmour thought they were losing the “Barrett-ness”. After “Baby Lemonade” was attempted, 2 takes of “Maisie” were recorded before Barrett went into 15 takes of “Gigolo Aunt”. The next day, two-track demos of “Wolfpack”, “Waving My Arms in the Air”, “Living Alone” and “Bob Dylan Blues”, were recorded.
