Earlier this week the members of Pink Floyd confirmed that they would soon release their first new album in two decades, the long-awaited follow-up to 1994’s The Division Bell. Frontman David Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson, casually revealed the news that The Endless River will come out in October, via Twitter. Which gives you just about enough time to get up to speed on the British psychedelic rock band’s vast back catalog, which includes landmark releases as The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall all remastered and readily available on Music Unlimited.

If you’re looking to grasp the depth and length of soul man Bobby Womack’s career – consider this: he was signed by Sam Cooke and his last album was produced by Damon Albarn. After leaving his early gospel roots for the heathen world, he found hits with the Valentinos, earning the early love of The Rolling Stones, who covered “It’s All Over Now.” He grew into one of the most expressive, passionate singers of the ‘70s, filling tunes like “Across 110th Street” and “That’s the Way I Feel About You” with his straight-to-the-heart cool. His snarling vocals of “I’m a Midnight Mover” cannot be topped while his mellow folk-soul take on “California Dreamin’” might be the definitive version. His most recent album, accurately titled The Bravest Man in the Universe was a late career highlight.
