"Works" is a
Pink Floydcompilation 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 artistscompilation album promoting Pink Floyd's UK label Harvest Recordsentitled " 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 " The Dark Side of the Moon".

*"Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" both have alternate mixes. Changes to these include different cut times between the two songs as well as the audience heard at the end of "Fearless"/ beginning of "Brain Damage." Another change is that some of the spoken parts from the tracks are at different volumes - the primary reason for this is that the versions featured here are stereo folddowns of the quadraphonic mix.
*Some other tracks are present in alternate "Cross-fade" mixes, most notable on the segues between "See Emily Play"/"Several Species of Small Furry Animals" and "Fearless/Brain Damage".
