This song shows Syd's awareness of his psychological state. Barrett was a founding member of Pink Floyd, but mental illness led to a reclusive lifestyle away from music. (thanks, Andy - Utica, MN)
The take of this song on this album was played out of time by Barrett, who skipped and added beats at will, much to the frustration of the studio personnel. There is another version of the song on Opel, a compilation of Barrett out-takes, which is known as "Wouldn't You Miss Me?"
This was produced by Barrett's former band-mates Roger Waters and David Gilmour, who took a break from working on Pink Floyd's third album Ummagumma to help Barrett finish his record. (thanks, Bill - Erie, PA, for above 2)
