Pink Floyd – See Emily Play (1967)


Syd's Pink Floyd

Pin Ups was the seventh studio album by Bowie that provided him with some respite during his prodigious, creative early 1970s run of albums. Reflecting how far he had stretched himself in such a short period time, his pin ups were mainly a handful of 1960s British invaders. However, Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd did not quite fit that bill. Bowie said that Barrett was the first man he saw wearing make-up on stage. On listening to Bowie’s cover, you can hear the respect that he and Mick Ronson pay to this psychedelic original.
