Floyd for Beginners, Barrett's Best Bits Included

Advantages: A great introduction to early Floyd, with a very varied track selection
Disadvantages: None

A Mouse Named Gerald

Advantages: Brilliant example of innovative 60's music
Disadvantages: Maybe a little dated for some and quite different from their later work.

Relics was originally released in 1971 in between "Meddle" and "Dark Side of the Moon" and features songs from the bands early years and some more obscure tracks from the period. The title jokingly reflects the choice of these older tracks. The Tr ...

I Love Forever Changes - A New Experience in Groovy Sound

Advantages: A strong case for this being among the finest Rock albums ever made.
Disadvantages: Should have been a double album but went over budget.
