First official re-release of the third compilation album by legendary British Progressive Rock band.
Anyone who knew anything about Pink Floyd knew that a dance band they were not, so this compilation, courtesy of Columbia Records, was intended ironically. Originally released in 1981, "A Collection Of Great Dance Songs" contains alternative mixes and versions of the band’s classics, now remastered from the original analogue tapes with album artwork faithfully reproduced.
The album contains alternative mixes of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (which comprises parts 1, 2, 4 and 7) edited down for time reasons, and "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)" (which combines the intro from the single mix with the album version which fades out during the "if you don't eat your meat" ending). Also, the track "Money" was re-recorded as Capitol Records refused to license the track to Columbia/CBS Records. David Gilmour re-recorded the track himself, guitars, keyboards, bass guitar and vocals and co-producing the song with James Guthrie. Dick Parry reprised his saxophone role on the track. There are some differences between the re-recorded version and the original; mainly in the saxophone and guitar solos and the overall use of reverb and Gilmour repeating "away" at the end instead of the high pitch scat singing on the original. The drumming is noticeably different from Nick Mason's, especially during the guitar solo, with very little of the tom-tom fills heard on the original.
The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on 29 January 1982, Platinum on 6 July 1989, and Double Platinum in August 2001. The album reached number 37 on the United Kingdom charts and number 31 in the United States.
