64 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit was het vijfde album dat Pink Floyd uitbracht. Het is een concept-album, hetgeen wil zeggen dat er een buiten-muzikaal gegeven aan ten grondslag ligt dat de nummers inhoudelijk met elkaar verbindt. De muziek is zwaar georkestreerd. Het in klassieke kringen bekende John Alldis Choir leverde een bijdrage. In de periode waarin dit album verscheen groeide Pink Floyd uit tot een supergroep die met name gekenmerkt werd door de ongekende omvang van de geluids- en lichtinstallaties
The endless river by Pink Floyd (Musical group)( Recording )

8 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pink Floyd's musical legacy is well documented and much loved, and now 2014 sees the release of 'The Endless River,' a mainly four-sided instrumental album with one song, "Louder Than Words", which will include new lyrics by Polly Samson. "'The Endless River' has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire" - David Gilmour. "'The Endless River' is a tribute to Rick. I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was" - Nick Mason. The concept for the powerful imagery of a man rowing on a "river" of clouds was created by Ahmed Emad Eldin, an 18-year-old Egyptian digital artist. Ahmed's image was then re-created by Stylorouge, award-winning UK design agency. Pink Floyd's album artwork, mostly created by Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis, is as legendary as the band's music. With Storm's passing in 2013, the task of finding an image that carried on Storm's legacy passed to Aubrey 'Po' Powell, Storm's original partner in Hipgnosis. Says Po: "When we saw Ahmed's image it had an instant Floydian resonance. It's enigmatic and open to interpretation, and is the cover that works so well for The Endless River." The Endless River's track listing runs across four sides, to invoke the album listening experience
