Description

Released originally in 1983, Swordfishtrombones saw Tom Waits undergo a new lease of creative life. Now free from his record deal with Asylum, Waits produced the record himself, veering away from the piano / string orchestra arrangements that characterised the first decade or so of his career and towards more abstract, eclectic arrangements. It was instantly hailed as a masterpiece.

A Collection of Great Dance Songs is a compilation album by English rock band Pink Floyd. It was released on 23 November 1981 in the United Kingdom by Harvest Records and in the United States by Columbia Record

A Collection of Great Dance Songs was released on Nov. 23, 1981, in the U.S. (it was also issued in the U.K. by Harvest). While the compilation became Pink Floyd’s worst-charting LP in the States since 1972 – and its worst-to-date overseas – the album has gone multi-platinum over the years. The release has largely been supplanted by Pink Floyd collections released in the digital era.

In an ironic twist, the album that was designed as a basic introduction to Pink Floyd has become a must-have for hardcore Pink Floyd completists. A Collection of Great Dance Songs remains the only release that contains the unique edit of “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” as well as Gilmour’s solo studio version of “Money.”
