* TheFaceless: For a long time, they were one of the most famous rock bands in the world, but the average rock fan couldn't name or identify the band members in a picture of they tried, no thanks to their show-stealing light shows, stage effects and not appearing in most of their record covers. Their identities didn't become common knowledge until around ''1987'', during the court battle between the band and Waters and the subsequent promotional material of ''A Momentary Lapse of Reason'' prominently featuring Gilmour and Mason.

** ''Shine On'' (1992): A box set, the idea of which was that the band's "greatest hits" were actually whole albums. Consisted of ''Music/ASaucerfulOfSecrets'', ''Music/{{Meddle}}'', ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon'', ''Music/WishYouWereHere'', ''Music/{{Animals}}'', ''Music/TheWall'', ''Music/AMomentaryLapseOfReason'', and -- for collector's bait -- a CD containing all of the band's 1967-1969 singles. That exclusive CD, ''The Early Singles'' is still the only place to find such rarities as "Point Me at the Sky" and "It Would Be So Nice" on CD (most of the others can be found on ''Relics'', the 2007 re-release of ''Music/ThePiperAtTheGatesOfDawn'' or ''The Early Years'' box set).

The soundtrack to ''Film/ZabriskiePoint'' from 1970 is also sometimes considered for inclusion [[labelnote:note 1]] Especially by people trying to retail it. They were certainly not the only band whose work was used on the soundtrack, but they did make the biggest contribution, including new material specifically written and recorded for it under director Creator/MichelangeloAntonioni's (awkward, inexpert and nebulous) musical direction (How inexpert? He rejected an early draft of "Us and Them" because he thought it sounded "like a church" and wanted more "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" type material). Unlike the films above, there's probably around a 50/50 split between those who know ''Zabriskie Point'' for its Floyd connections, and those who know it for its award-winning director or cinematic qualities. [[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:note 2]] They also recorded a soundtrack to ''Film/TheCommittee'' (1968), a {{Mind Screw}}y, philosophical independent black-and-white {{film noir}}. The film has since been released on DVD, Internet sites etcetera, and the Floyd contributions to the soundtrack have appeared on some rarities and outtakes type compilations, but both are sunk in what is an unsurprisingly deep obscurity.

*** "High Hopes", in fact, contains a ''double'' inversion, dropping the title of both the album it's in and the ''next'' album -- the last Pink Floyd album, ''Music/TheEndlessRiver'', borrows its name from the last line of the song:

After Barrett's departure, Pink Floyd struggled initially, with the period between the albums ''Music/{{More}}'' and ''Music/AtomHeartMother'' (or ''Music/ObscuredByClouds'', for some fans) generally considered to be their DorkAge, and the band looks back on the post-[[Music/ASaucerfulOfSecrets Saucerful]], pre-Music/{{Meddle}} era [[CreatorBacklash with also some embarrassment]]. But, by the time of 1973's ''Music/{{Meddle}}'', they began to tone down the experimentalism and EpicRocking, refining their signature sound, and eventually hitting the big time with their next album, ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon''. The lyrics began to become more weighty, mostly revolving around themes of isolation, death, insanity, and criticisms of modern society. A re-occurring theme of isolation from society also began to become more visible as Waters took more control of the band, and they began an impressive run of success with a series of complex ProgressiveRock albums.
