3 stars A Collection of Great Dance Songs is nothing more than a quick sampler of 1970s Pink Floyd. Not that this is bad, but it's an interesting collection. Obviously, one LP isn't enough to give a true sampling of Floyd, but they do try it here.

With two cuts from Wish You Were Here, one from the Wall, one from Animals, one from Meddle, and one song from Dark Side of the Moon (redone), we just have too little representationof all the albums. There is nothing wrong with any of the choices, but the ommissions are legion.

Interestingly there is a remake of Money, featring few of the original members, but retaining Dick Parry and his saxaphone. This is similar to the original, but for some unknown legal reasons had to be re-recorded for this album with Gilmour doing the vocals, bass, and guitars.

All in all, a decent little compilation, but only necessary for completists.
