It debuted at on the Billboard 200 album chart on 24 November 2001, with sales of 214,650 copies. It remained on the chart for 26 weeks. The album was certified Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum on 6 December 2001 in the US by the RIAA.

About Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd. The compilation spans the career of Pink Floyd from their first single Arnold Layne in 1967, through to High Hopes, the final track from their 1994 studio album The Division Bell. Each of the 26 tracks fades from one to the next with no break in the music, courtesy of longtime producer/engineer James Guthrie, to help recreate the concept album feel of the band’s mid-period work.

Best Pink Floyd Albums. The Top Ten. 1 The Dark Side of the Moon. It's so hard to pick one best album by Pink Floyd, but I think this one's gotta be it. I kinda wanted to pick Animals though, but it almost seems unfair because there's not many songs on it, so it's JUST a few amazing songs, almost like Close to the Edge by Yes. DSotM is a much better experience when you play it as a whole, however.

Being the quintessential album rock band, Pink Floyd hasn't had much luck with "best-of" and "greatest-hits" compilations, like A Collection of Great Dance Songs and the bizarro follow-up, Works. The 2001 release Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd does just that, sequencing the tracks non-chronologically in an effort to place more emphasis on the individual songs as opposed to the era they're from. Unfortunately, the effect is rather jarring when the songs transition from the clinical mid-'90s sound of "High Hopes" directly into the psychedelic groove of the much earlier "Bike.

I agree with the statement that Pink Floyd compilations don't work, but visually this is a must have, futhermore on a 12 inch format! Storm Thorgerson made a fantastic work!Back in 2009 a great online site sold the vinyl boxset at a ridiculous 13£50... Glad I ordered a copy!!!
MARK BEN FORD
in my opinion Pink Floyd compilations don't work. As it is a far better experience to listen to whole albums.

ECHOES THE BEST OF PINK FLOYD 2CD QuestionIs your CD numbered wrong in your version? When you put a disc 1 to play so 2 disc begins to play and the disc 2 is pressed downward? karka5656

I bought 2 of these LP Box sets. One is still sealed. Figured I'd buy them while still available back in 2002 as, they don't typically re-release these types of PF projects. The mixing and engineering of this compilation is outrageously good , on vinyl anyway. I have not heard the CD or cassette versions to comment on them. Dead quiet, ruler flat virgin 180 gram vinyl pressing times 4. I Don't mind that certain songs are overlooked or that they gently segue together. This particular digital remaster cut to vinyl by Sean Magee at Abbey Road is excellent, even though Bernie Grundman has his name in the deadwax as far as I remember. If the discovery box and later remasters are at least this good on vinyl, I need to buy every album again from first to last. I have good pressings of the individual albums, but most are US copies and there is room for improvement on all of them.

Hi, sorry for my English i'm french... I bougth the CD version in 2001, it is my first record i bought about them at the age of 18. I remember so good memories about listening this album, as you can tell the mix is awesome. I will be very happy to catch this 4 lp set but the CD version is very impressive too, because of : it's a CD, no side slidding, it's a one shoot. Til this day i collected many records and of course a couple of Floyds. The mastering is so strong so powerful, whatever you listening on CD or Vinyl. I luckily have the chance to cop 2 original dark side of the moon in very early UK press, with blue triangle, and i can't barely do a difference with a french press. I think your US press if it's original it's almost the same as the UK, it's just my opinion with my own hifi system but generally peoples agreed US pressing are very good quality

"Run Like Hell" gets passed over in favor of The Happiest Days Of Our Lives, Marooned, Keep Talking, Sorrow, The Fletcher Memorial Home, When The Tigers Broke Free, Learning To Fly, Jugband Blues and High Hopes. I wonder why, especially since Gilmour was very involved in the tracklisting.

Odd distillation of Echoes' 26 tracks to 11. The band was awarded with a 1995 Grammy for the "Best Rock Instrumental Performance" on "Marooned". But "Jugband Blues"?

The band Pink Floyd has a huge history. A psychedelic pop group in the sixties – led by Syd Barrett, the band led by bassist Roger Waters to one of the first progressive rock groups, and eventually even knew the status of mega-stadionvullende act. Quite right so that there is finally a compilation is dedicated to ' The Floyd '. But what should have been a perilous enterprise. Pink Floyd was a real album band that just one time a significant singlehit managed to score with Another Brick In The Wall. There could not be satisfied with simply recap of all hits. The problem is solved by the cd build as a trusted Pink Floyd concept album where all the songs into each other. See Emily Play runs so seamlessly into The Wall and Arnold Layne is side by side Wish You Were Here. Daring but it works wonderfully. Not as crazy as you realize that the plate is put together by the remaining members of Pink Floyd.

There may have been some thought into the choice of songs, their editing, sequencing and running order but little attention was paid to the typography, which is shockingly bad.
Agalas
It is the worst release ever!!! I really don`t understand why it was made? It is not Greatest Hits even. I love Pink Floyd, I`ve known all their albums, songs. Making any shorts (Echoes!!!), or mixing songs is really horribly on this release. I also don`t understand unchrononical manipulation. EMI please not doing more such "the best of..." with any others musicians, especially with Pink Floyd!!!
Ichalote
I think its funny that everything you say "please EMI don't do this" was the bands idea. In fact David Gilmour was responsible for the track list and preparing the edit and the mixing (with James guthrie).
Grinin
I Think this is an Unofficial release, since echoes was only released on cd.Can anyone Confirm this?
Fesho
nope-it is an official release. SHINE ON box was only released on cd-official ofc.
Kelerana
It's an official limited release. The order of songs is slightly different from the CD. I think it was only published in Holland in 2002
Fawrindhga
nope, this is official! saw it in a big german store, wasnt cheap.
