“Works“ is a Pink Floyd compilation album released in 1983 by their former American label, Capitol Records, to compete with their then-current album “The Final Cut”.
The main interest for collectors is the track “Embryo”, an outtake from “Ummagumma” that later became a concert staple in a greatly elongated form, which originally only appeared in January 1970 on a scarce “various artists” compilation album promoting Pink Floyd’s UK label Harvest Records entitled “Picnic – A Breath of Fresh Air”.
Also unique to “Works“, the tracks “Brain Damage” and “Eclipse” are presented as alternate versions, possibly stereo mixes from the master tapes of the quadraphonic edition of “The Dark Side of the Moon”.
