Covers of Syd Barrett Songs and Tributes



This is a new project I'm working on. I'm trying to assemble a list of all known Barrett covers. I've just begun, so I don't have much yet. I'm also collecting MP3's of covers and tributes, so any help here would be appreciated!


The best Syd Barrett cover I've heard so far is 'Love Song' by Livid. It is absolutely beautiful!
I'll give you a little sample of it here: Livid - Love Song
Check out Livid at www.livid.nu
