Opel is a collection of unreleased recordings from Syd Barrett, they're either demos, alternate versions or unfinished tracks. He would wander into the studio and start playing and would quit without warning. While he was in the studio, the backing members of Soft Machine would hang around and try to play along. But Syd would change chords or notes so often that it became virtually impossible to keep up with him. A collection of Syd Barrett's material was released and it uses tracks from all three albums, a definitive collection of music from a most eccentric individual.
