Brittle Days - A Tribute To Nick Drake is a 1992 compilation album released by Imaginary Records in the UK. The album features contemporary artists performing cover versions of songs by Nick Drake. Imaginary Records, most notably home The Chameleons UK and similar new-wave UK bands, was greatly influenced by Drake.

It received a 2/5 star rating at Allmusic. Critic Wilson Neate praised the covers by The Changelings and The Walkabouts, but wrote that "Unfortunately, many of the adaptations on Brittle Days are forgettable, or perhaps best forgotten[…]More surprising, perhaps, is the fact that, although both Drake's peers and subsequent generations of musicians have heaped accolades on his work, this album features few prominent names." [1]
