Book Description

23 Jan 1995 Visual Documentary
Updated for the third time to include Pink Floyd's activities in the late 1980s and 1990s, this biography includes the acrimonious split between Roger Waters and his three colleagues, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright, and also details of their "Division Bell" album and the tour that followed. It includes rare early photographs of Pink Floyd with their founder, Syd Barrett, biographies of each member of the band, posters and lost ephemera from the group's own collections, a chronology which lists every concert by the group, and a Floyd discography, including solo work and spin-off projects.

This is a must have for any Pink Floyd fan. It not only charts the full history of the band but also has a wealth of photographs and a listing of every know gig the band and its members have done. it also contains a comprehensive disography of all the music recorded by the band including solo projects and covers by other artist.An good all round book at a good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars The first definitive Floyd book 17 April 2011
Format:Paperback
This "bible" remains in the core Floyd library. The first edition, published in the late 70s, had the misfortune to conclude with the release of Rick Wright's solo album Wet Dream - hardly a high point in Floydology, from either a commercial or musical angle. The book's strength, however, is its reporting of the psychedelic era, in which author Miles played a major role. The blockbusting Wall saga provided a more suitable bookend: updated to cover events up to the legendary 1980 concerts, the book was republished twice in the early 80s (the first has a live photograph on the cover, the second a drawing from the Wall movie). It was also filleted for the pocket-sized and entirely meritless The Pink Floyd Illustrated Discography and Another Brick In The Wall, the latter of which added only a paragraph about The Final Cut to justify its existence. By the 90s, Andy Mabbett had augmented Miles' original book - and, although there have been a handful of excellent Floyd titles since then, this remains a great place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! 17 Nov 2003
Format:Paperback
This book is an absolute must for Pink Floyd fans! It covers all of thier albums in great detail and tours in great detail. Jam-packed full of pictures that will blow you away.
Although it only go's as far as September 1994. But that was when they ended their last tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars The visual truth 12 Mar 2000
By john valencia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a documantary for someone who knows about the real Pink Floyd. It zero's in on the older more contraversial stuff. It has some really rare photographs, very interesting. This book is a little harder to read than In the flesh cos it is ment for someone who knows a bit about the Floyd. All (most) of the Pink Floyd books I read focus in on The wall, or The darkside of the moon. I highly reccomend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Floyd fans 9 April 2001
By David M. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book is subtitled "a visual documentary" - however it's more like the band's diary and scrapbook. Every appearance, concert, recording session and disk is cataloged in this amazingly well researched volume. A must for Floyd fans. The band's early history, particularly the 1960s, is well documented. Also done well is the famous Roger Waters / David Gilmour rift - this difficult history is analyzed so we can see each point of view. As the founding members go their separate ways, they have different paths in the book's catalog of events.
The photographs are great and include many very early shots. I only wish that captions had been included, however. I'd like to know if any of the shows I attended were captured on film and included in the book.
