ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The record company of Pink Floyd- EMI- delivered a striking BEST OF compilation on December 10, 2007, the much-admired “Oh, by the Way.” This effort was close to comprehensive in that it contained not only all of the studio albums from start to finish- with the exception of “More,” but loads of lavish extras. “More” contains some wonderful music and deserves to have been included but it is what it is. Still, IF you have as yet NOT introduced the music of this astonishing band to your hungry ears, you can rectify that mistake by doing so NOW. Visit Amazon.com or whatever else site you do for the best in music. We thank you.s
