For those who spent the whole of the 1970s actually living on the dark side of the moon rather than listening to it, A Collection of Great Dance Songs offers an opportunity to hear some of the most timeless, thoughtful and influential rock music ever made by rich, bitter Englishmen. The album’s title certainly seems less deceptive now, considering just how much of the Floyds’ instrumental ambience eventually seeped into the techno and dance scenes of the 90s. Initially released during one of those yawning epochs between studio albums (namely The Wall and The Final Cut) this “Best Of ” cherry-picks from Pink Floyd’s 1970s material–from an era when the band (and they were a band in those days) bestrode the stadiums of the world like light-show Leviathans and sold records by the nation-load–and is only undermined by the omission of such sprawling masterpieces as “Echoes” and “Atom Heart Mother” (such were the time limitations of the old vinyl format). Never mind the dance floor, this a great portable Pink Floyd collection for car journeys, long ones mind. –Kevin Maidment
