The Making of the Pink Floyd Masterpiece
  stevholt | Nov 19, 2017 |
Rather boring account of the making of a masterpiece. Read Nick Mason's own account of the Floyd's history: sharper, funnier, and simply better. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0306813424, Hardcover)

Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon (1973) is one of the most beloved albums of all time. A sonically stunning exploration into dark themes of madness, death, anxiety, and alienation, it has sold a staggering 30 million copies worldwide, and continues to sell 250,000 copies a year. Besides being perhaps the most fully realized and elegant concept album ever recorded, The Dark Side of the Moon was also one of the most technically advanced LPs of its day. It has aged remarkably well and still sounds as contemporary and cutting edge as it did on the day it was released. A perfect blend of studio wizardry and fearless innovation, The Dark Side of the Moon is illuminated by John Harris's exploration of the band's fractured history, his narrative skill, and his deft exploration of the album's legacy, such as its massive influence on bands like Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails. Drawing on original, new interviews with every member of the band-bassist and chief songwriter Roger Waters, guitarist Dave Gilmour, keyboardist Rick Wright, and drummer Nick Mason-The Dark Side of the Moon is a must-have for the millions of devoted fans who desire to know more about one of the most timeless, compelling, commercially successful, and mysterious albums ever made.

"A behind-the-scenes, in-depth look at the making of one of the greatest studio masterpieces and most commercially successful albums ever recorded - fully illustrated with many never-before-seen photos." "Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon (1973) is one of the most acclaimed albums of all time. An exploration of madness, death, anxiety, and alienation, it remained on the Billboard charts for 724 weeks - the longest consecutive run for an LP ever - and has sold 30 million copies worldwide. It still sells some quarter million copies every year." "Besides being perhaps rock's most fully realized and elegant concept album, The Dark Side of the Moon was among the most technically advanced records of its time, perfectly blending studio wizardry and fearless innovation. The rich story behind The Dark Side of the Moon is now illuminated by journalist John Harris's exploration of the album's many secrets and the band's fractured history, including the mental collapse of group founder Syd Barrett, who is seen here in rare photographs from the archive of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason." "Drawing on original interviews with bassist and chief lyricist Roger Waters, guitarist Dave Gilmour, Nick Mason, and the album's supporting cast, The Dark Side of the Moon is a must-have for the millions of devoted fans looking for the definitive story of one of the most timeless, compelling and mysterious albums ever made."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
