Pink Floyd's 1981 best-of A Collection of Great Dance Songs is fair-good if you ask me. Released in November of 1981, the album has a nice mix of songs from 1971-81. Half of the tracks are altered in one way or the other on ACOGDS, so it is a pretty good collectors album for people who have most Pink Floyd albums, as opposed to a lot of other compilation albums that are boring because the songs are the same exact version as they were on their original album. The reason for this album was that Floyd's label in America, Columbia wanted a best-of. Since Floyd were not a band known for hit singles, they were a band known for hit albums. The Floyd album covers, this one included, are always cool to collect. There are a whole lot of Floyd compilations, but I'd have to say this is one of the best and was the only best-of to hit the US Top 40 hitting #31 and going Gold in two months, eventually Double Platinum. This compilation starts with the standard version of One of These Days (a/k/a One of These Days I am Going to Cut You Into Little Pieces) is a good classic spooky song, which is always a good song to be on an album and is the version from Meddle. Money is great. The version of Money on Dance Songs is done by guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour (as he plays guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, vocals and produces himself save Dick Parry's saxophone) because Capitol/EMI in the US and Canada would not let the band have the rights to the song so Dave re-recorded this track note for note(some parts of the solos are different and you can tell the recording is from 1981). Sheep is the original version found on the album Animals. Shine on You Crazy Diamond is altered here to include Parts 1, 2, 4 and 7. Wish You Were Here is the regular standard version. Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) has the single mix intro and the album version ending so a unique version here. If you want to get a good Floyd compliation but don't want to pay $30 for Echoes, get this collection.
