An "In the flesh" look at The Wall,
This review is from: The Making of Pink Floyd The Wall (Hardcover)
Well I stumbled on this book whilst looking at how the new Pink Floyd Immersion box sets where doing. I was dissapointed with how much was missing from the The Wall Immersion sets so I put my hard earned MONEY on this book instead and was not disapointed.
When it first arrived I must say the size of the book, an inch wider than A4 and with approx 250 pages put a smile on my face! Its got a great beginning with Mr Scarfe reminiscing with the remaining members of Pink Floyd and Alan Parker and nice to see pictures of them all getting along now after all the trouble they had making the concept album.
Its contents are an excellent read I must say, the stuff I learned from this book is not in any of the other Pink Floyd books, you learn about how Gerald first worked for the Pink Floyd and how he came up with back drops for the live shows before The Wall. The drawings are amazing, Gerald goes into how he and the rest of the team came up with the designs even explains how some designs were dropped and shows us all these great colourful images.
I say its a mighty fine book and now lives next to all my Storm Thorgerson books on Pink Floyd album art.
