Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent single disc overview to Pink Floyd's legacy November 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Pink Floyd's new single disc best of called A Foot In the Door is a great starter into the world of Pink Floyd for those who want to know what the band's music was like and first proper greatest hits album.
When I first got wind of A Foot In the Door I was like do we need another single disc Pink Floyd compilation but got as a gift from a family member as I'm a Pink Floyd collector and I am impressed.
A Foot in the Door, like the now out of print 2001 2-CD Echoes compilation, is not like many best ofs that are out on the market as it is a non-chronological compilation and has songs segueing from one to the next. A Foot In the Door (as its title suggests) is literally geared towards newbies who want to delve into the legacy of Pink Floyd and, unlike 1981's A Collection of Great Dance Songs and 1983's US only Works, is a single disc compilation spanning everything from 1967 to 1994 and coming in at close to 80 minutes.
It's impossible to put a collection of Pink Floyd songs together on one CD that will please everyone. I think the non-chronological placing of these songs adds something new to the mix and the transitions between some of these songs create a mosaic of music just as these songs did on their original albums. Producer James Guthrie was responsible for the segueing and tracklisting with help from the three surviving Pink Floyd members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters.
The band's 1967 Syd Barrett era is represented by the band's first UK Top 10 hit being "See Emily Play".
1973's classic The Dark Side of the Moon is represented by a slightly edited version of "Time", "The Great Gig in the Sky", "Money" (which segues into "Comfortably Numb") and the album's closer "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse".

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Pink Floyd: A Foot in the Door January 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Pink Floyd is my all-time favorite rock music. However, the compilation of this CD cuts off intro music and fade outs, cheating the seasoned listener of the full cut.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Right Compilation... December 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
For a new listener to Pink Floyd.

I am an established Pink Floyd fan, so I don't want to bias this review with the typical, "Pink Floyd is an album band and this compilation doesn't do that justice". It may be true, but I want to write this review for those that are potentially new Pink Floyd fans looking to introduce themselves to this wonderful band.

First off, Pink Floyd weren't a band of hits. One could say that only a handful of songs really fit the description of hits. But, Pink Floyd did have their classic songs, and that is where any Pink Floyd compilation must tread. They had a lot of classic songs, but it is unfortunate that most compilations don't (and probably can't) get them all into a set. A set like this becomes further limited as a one disc set.

To really try and create a Pink Floyd compilation, you really do need to be a multi-disc set. Some of Pink Floyd's best songs are epic, and I feel like this album dismisses some of the epic tracks due to the length requirements.

The song selection here is not horrible, but as others have noted, it neglects a few albums that did have some great Pink Floyd tracks. Specifically, I am talking about Animals, Meddle, and Piper at the Gates of Dawn. It probably wouldn't have been easy to include what could be considered the right songs, but I would argue that songs like Have a Cigar, The Fletcher Memorial Home, and High Hopes could be replaced by songs like One of These Days, Fearless, Sheep, Astronomy Domine, etc. I have nothing against those three songs that are included, but Have a Cigar leaves a listener one track (maybe 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd 101 November 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a solid collection for anyone who wants an introduction to Pink Floyd. Every classic rock radio cut (hence, nothing from 'Animals'), and then some (OK, OK, they coulda put one 'Animals' cut on this), is on here, perfect for the casual fan. Let me repeat that: perfect for the casual fan... like my brother. I'm getting this for him for his birthday. I almost considered getting him 'Echoes' last year, but knew he would not listen to it, too much unfamiliar material. With this disc there are 13 out of 16 songs I know he would know. Pretty solid.
As for me I have the albums, so this would be a superfluous purchase for myself. But for my brother or anyone else who wants to get a... foot in the door, this is the perfect place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars If It's PINK, I LOVE It!!! August 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I agree with the one reviewer that Pink Floyd is NOT a "greatest hits" type band. I think just about every song they ever did was a GREATEST HIT!!! But I do like this CD because it keeps me from having to grab 3-4 Floyd CDs on my way out the door to work, ect., and I can just grab this ONE, and it has plenty of Floyd for a 30 minute commute. Now, if I am sitting at home, I grab a COMPLETE CD, not this one. But kudos for adding in some of the old hits, and some of the new hits, too. No one, maybe just me, loves The Fletcher Memorial Home! So, it is a great "sampler cd" of Pink Floyd's career. And the songs it has are AWESOME. ALL of them. Period. So, for 8, 9 or even 15 bucks, you get a great cd that you will no doubt wear out. P.S. Just caught Waters' The Wall Tour about a month ago in ATL., and let me say this: I'm Glad I Was There!!! HaHa. A surreal, life-impacting concert/experience/memory, that gave me the chance that my age (44) did not give me in 1977. Get the CD you cheapskates! LOL!

If you insist on getting a compilation, get Echoes
Yes I have Echoes and it is a fine collection. If this set has less songs then why bother unless it is cheap like 9.99 or less and you are new to PF. I agree that when you play PF and you play an album you listen to the entire album in one sitting. Especially Dark Side of the Moon which is one... Read More

Who is this aimed at?
I agree, Animals and other albums (More, Ummagumma, Meddle, Obscured by Clouds) should have been on here. Hell, the cover of this compilation has all of the artwork from the albums that DON'T even appear on it. What's up with that?!

I think the only idea of this newer compilation was to make... Read More
