Eagle Vision s new SD Blu-ray range presents upscaled standard definition original material with uncompressed stereo for the best possible quality. Pink Floyd s Dark Side of the Moon is both a masterpiece and a phenomenon. It is an iconic album with an instantly recognisable sleeve and music that has stood the test of time in the 40 years since its release. It is also one of the bestselling albums in history. There couldn t be a more appropriate album to include in Eagle Vision s Classic Album series. As usual the main programme includes interviews with all the members of the band: Roger Waters, Richard Wright, David Gilmour and Nick Mason, plus the engineer, Alan Parsons, the designer, the late Storm Thorgerson, and other people involved in the recording and release of the album.
The most phenomenal recording in rock & roll history is thoroughly examined in Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon. The Floyd's 1973 masterpiece remained on bestseller charts for nearly 14 years, and its enduring importance is honoured here by all four members of Pink Floyd and key personnel (engineer Alan Parsons, mixing supervisor Chris Thomas, sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson and others) who played essential roles in the landmark album's creation.
Produced for the Classic Albums series, this thorough and thought-provoking study highlights a track-by-track dissection of the LP's master tapes (including the spoken-word passages that bookend the album), superbly interlaced with archival footage, early demo tapes, concert animations and latter-day acoustic performances by David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Richard Wright to demonstrate each track's contribution to the final mix--a sonic exploration that extends to the illuminating bonus features. Informative interviews abound (including Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke), and much-deserved credit is given to saxophonist Dick Parry, solo vocalist Clare Torry and former Columbia Records chairman Bhaskar Menon, who fostered the album's US commercial success. For Floyd fans, musicians and studio technicians alike, this is a must-have addition to any DVD library. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Everything you'd like to know about this album is here. Classic Albums are reliable, as always.
"Any Colour You Like" isn't included though, which is too bad.
The highlights are the acoustic performances by the individual band members. Especially "Brain Damage" (performed by Roger Waters), which is so good that I had to have it in my computer.
It's worth your money.
Take note however, that this is a documentary of the making of the album, more than it is a "music" dvd. Although it does contain a lot of music.
I must say that this has become one of my favourite dvds in recent months. That must say a lot about Pink Floyd. Even them, just talking about making their music, turns out to be way more entertaining than many other "Best of" compilations in themselves!
You can read other reviews if you want to know technical stuff. I just know that I love every moment of this dvd and that no one should be without it. Okay, so the menu sucks. So what? Everything else is CLASS!
All Four members of the DSOTM line up contribute in an open frank way with David Gilmour and Richard Wright in particular demonstrating some of the individual moments such as the evolution of Us and Them from a track rejected from the Zabriskie Point soundtrack, and the chord progressions in the intro to Breathe and how they were pinched from Miles Davis. There is also fascinating input from Alan Parsons at the mixing desk and Chris Thomas who was the worked on the mix as well both highlighting the complexity of the construction of this seminal album.
There is no information here about anything special on the BluRay other than to say that the sound quality will be uncompressed and hopefully gorgeous!
...work of warning - not about this but the DVD on the making of Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyds follow up (an better) album - that film is really rubbish. Not made by Isis productions which this series is.... what a pity!
