Syd Barrett Still Laughing?

Denise Vacca from Pennsylvania: "I love your column and have a question for you! I have an album called Syd Barrett Still Laughing: Rare Studio Outtakes. The label says 'Roger Keith Wouldn't You Miss Me At All?', and a copyright symbol next to Roger Keith Music Co. Ltd.  What do I have?"

Syd Barrett Still Laughing is one of the many bootlegs that have been released of Syd outtakes/alternate versions.  The copyright symbol is of course an attempt by the bootleggers to lend an air of authenticity to the release, and to make unsuspecting purchasers assume that Syd's estate will be getting some royalties from the release (Roger Keith being Syd's real first names).
