Super-Rare Syd Barrett Demo

Repetition be danged, Goddess bless the WFMU Blog. In commemoration of the recent death of Syd Barrett, they’ve posted an MP3 of “Lucy Lee” (aka “Lucy Lee in Blue Tights”). The song, having a very garage-psych sound, was written by Syd and recorded as a demo in late 1965 by the group that would later call themselves Pink Floyd.

The musicians included guitarist Bob Klose, whom I gather (not being that much of a Floyd-aholic) left the group before they christened themselves Pink Floyd. The recording was made available in 1996 in an unnamed Italian book.
