Opel Discography

Opel

Opel is a 1988 compilation album consisting of unreleased and alternate versions of previously released songs, recorded by former Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett between 1968 and 1970.

While Barrett only released two albums in 1970, The Madcap Laughs and Barrett, the existence of unreleased studio work was widely reported. After years of demand from Barrett’s considerable fan base, Opel was compiled and released. Despite its positive reviews, it failed to chart.
