Pink Floyd Offer "Best"

Echoes, Pink Floyd’s long-awaited “best of” compilation, will hit stores November 6th.

The album will include twenty-seven of Floyd’s classic tracks – over 140 minutes of music – mixed together into a single piece. James Guthrie, the band’s longtime producer, did the mixing for the two-disc set, which will also be available on vinyl and cassette.

The collection will also feature one track never released on CD. “When the Tiger Broke Free,” written by Roger Waters for the film version of the The Wall in 1982 and released that summer as a seven-inch single, chronicles the death of Water’s father in World War II.

Cover art for the album was designed by Storm Thorgersen and, according to officials at Capitol Records, represents “a unique interpretation of Floyd covers over the years.”
