Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
Syd Barrett's psych masterpiece. Trippy, inventive and uniquely English.
A compilation of 'antiques and curios' from the early years. Indispensable.
Floyd come of age and set the blueprint for their later successes. Cosmic.
Dark Side Of The Moon
A true classic. Every home should have one (and most of them did).
Wish You Were Here
The Floyd pay tribute to Syd and have a go at the music industry. Wistful, bitter and million selling.
Roger Waters' crowning achievement; death, despair, alienation and tasty guitar solos.
