PINK FLOYD - A Foot In The Door: The Best Of Pink Floyd (2011)

A single-CD anthology of songs chosen by the surviving band members in 2011, A Foot in the Door was conceived as part of EMI's 'Why Pink Floyd?' campaign to reissue the group's entire back catalogue. The selection focuses mainly on the band's seminal albums Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here, with a handful of songs from other periods including early single "See Emily Play" and one track from each of the final three Pink Floyd studio albums. All songs remastered by James Guthrie and Joel Plante in 2011.

The only single disc overview of Pink Floyd’s extensive career is hamstrung by the band’s tendency towards creating sprawling albums, rather than concise hits. Even early songs such as the revelatory “See Emily Play,” Syd Barrett’s lone appearance here, seemed like an anomaly when it hit the UK charts in 1969.

The 2001 double offering Echoes had a larger palette to work with, an enormous advantage over trying to stuff the group’s most popular material into a generous if still limited 80 minutes. But with the recent sonic overhaul/upgrade and reissue of Floyd’s catalog, and some elaborately expanded packages of its biggest albums, the time seems to be right/ripe for this summary. From a more skeptical angle, the oncoming Christmas season typically favors hits collections, a corporate itch that Capitol/EMI is happy to scratch.
