Descripción

180 Gram Vinyl with Download. By 1979 Debbie Harry, Chris Stein and co. had realised their true potential. Forsaking pure rock for more diverse palette, Blondie's plan of attack now involved willfully grabbing at any passing style (as long as it could be termed 'pop') and making it their own. In this 'Eat To The Beat' emulated and expanded on the platinum-selling 'Parallel Lines' formula. 'Eat To The Beat' still bears the traces of the art punk roots that had given birth to them back in their CBGB's days in New York (on the title track, the manic 'Accidents Never Happen' and 'Living In The Real World'); but at times the album reads like a veritable history of chart styles: Here was their first proper foray into reggae with 'Die Young Stay Pretty', the Duane Eddy-at-the-disco grandeur of 'Atomic', the skittering, Spectorish pure pop of 'Dreaming' and 'Union City Blue' and the Motown stomp of 'Slow Motion'. 'Sound-A-Sleep' goes even further back into the kind of 50s dream pop that might feature in a David Lynch film

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.”
