This is a discography of Syd Barrett vinyl singles that were released in the European Union.

Any comments, corrections or additions to this discography would be appreciated.

  1. European Union: The European Union (or E.U. as it is commonly referred to) is a group of countries in Europe that have joined together for the purpose of creating a unified economic and political environment. Formed in 1993, the E.U. currently consists of the following countries:

      The Czech Republic
      The Netherlands
      The United Kingdom

  2. Manufacturing Information: Since the formation of the E.U. in 1993, many of the DVDs that are made for the European market are listed as being made by the E.U., and are distributed in each of the E.U. states. As a result, many European-made DVDs no longer have specific country designations on them, and instead may say "Made in the EU," and / or "Printed in the EU" on them.
