STEVE'S WORK WITH SYD BARRETT

In the New Book 'Random Precision' by David Parker, Peter Jenner (Floyd Manager) refers to Steve Took in relation to the recording sessions for Lanky (Part 1), Lanky (Part Two) and Rhamadam. David concludes that it is 'most likely' that Steve Took was on these three tracks! It is in the records that the percussion player was paid £9 per session for these tracks. Natually we are researching this to get the 'most likely' converted into 'was definitely'. However the percussion style is certainly the same as Steve Took's. Check out the Lanky Pt 2 clip below for that 'Style'!

According to Julian Palacios's sessionography in Lost In The Woods. Rhamadan and Lanky were both recorded 14th May 1968 (an unreleased Rhamadan, released Lanky Pt 1 and an unreleased Lanky Pt 2). Also, April 28th 1968 overdubs were added to Rhamadan, but no more work was done on Lanky (either version) after 14th May. (Source Grimble Gromble).

We are also researching whether Syd is included on two of the tracks released as the 'Missing Link to Tyrannosaurus Rex', recorded in '72 & released in '95. Stay Tuned Readers!

CORRECTION: For some while the Lanky Part Two clip was up here as 'Rhamadam'. Whoops. Thanks to Andréa Zavareei for the correction!
