Pink Floyd in a bluesy way

Pink Floyd is not exactly famous for playing the blues. But here is a band that crams the blues into Pink Floyd's music. Blue Floyd has just released a 2 CD set loaded with Pink Floyd songs. Done in blues style.

Pink Floyd actually took the group name from two blues artists, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, but have never played too much blues. One of the few exceptions is More Blues from the More soundtrack album.

Blue Floyd's album Begins includes 14 lengthy bluesy Pink Floyd songs, some of them segway into the next one. There are also a couple of Beatles songs on the disc. Blue Floyd consists of members from The Allman Brothers and The Black Crowes.
