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.
The cover art for the album was inspired by the c. 1948 poster “Nederland industrialiseert” (“Holland industrialises”) designed by Dutch graphic artist Wladimir Flem.
