Overview

From their gigs in tiny church halls to multimillion-selling albums—The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and the rock opera The Wall—and elaborate stadium shows, this tome celebrates legendary rock band Pink Floyd. Lavishly illustrated with previously unpublished photographs and rare graphic memorabilia, including posters, advertisements, handbills, and tickets from every era of the band’s remarkable history, this survey provides a comprehensive overview of the group, its members, and the times. In addition to a biographical account of the band’s collective and individual careers—from their pre-Floyd times in the early 1960s to the present day and their music’s evolution from psychedelic and space rock to progressive rock genres—this definitive reference presents a meticulously researched chronological listing of every Pink Floyd and solo concert with set lists, radio and television appearances, and a UK and U.S. discography.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Povey (coauthor, Pink Floyd: In the Flesh; The Complete Performance History) has made Pink Floyd the focus of his work since the 1980s. His latest is a visually stimulating book filled with information, analysis, and photographs, which deserves to be owned by every fan of the enigmatic progressive rock band. In addition to telling the story of Pink Floyd and its members through conventional text and photos, Povey includes detailed information about concerts, tours, individuals involved in concert production for the band, and discographies for Pink Floyd and the various solo projects and guest appearances with which its members and former members were involved. Like a Pink Floyd concert or album package, this is a multimedia experience; however, it is not all about glitz and style—there is excellent substance here, too. VERDICT An outstanding study and document of the work of a significant band; highly recommended for all popular culture and popular music fans.—James E. Perone, Mount Union Coll., Alliance, OH
