Veteran rock critic Martin Popoff leaves no stone unturned in taking apart Pink Floyd's generation-spanning masterpiece, The Dark Side of the Moon, while exploring each of the album's 10 tracks and their themes of madness, anxiety, and alienation. Chapters cover:
  • The state of Pink Floyd as of 1972, with special emphasis on deposed founder Syd Barrett
  • The recording sessions at famed Abbey Road Studios, including techniques used and the roles of personnel such as engineer Alan Parsons
  • Song-by-song studies of each album side, including analyses of lyrics and the guitars, drums, keyboards, and synthesizers employed by members David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright
  • The ground-breaking art and packaging created by design firm Hipgnosis and its founder Storm Thorgerson
  • The continent-hopping tours that supported the album and also introduced the songs before its release
  • The rock group's trajectory post-Dark Side, including notable albums, tours, and the departure of Waters
Popoff also takes you on side journeys examining each band member, session playersprog rock, the Live at Pompeii concert and film, Waters' singular writing technique, Dark Side collectibles, awards, and more. There's even a brief discography and complete LP tour dates.

 

Presented in a 10.5" × 10.5" slipcased book, Pink Floyd and The Dark Side of the Moon is illustrated with stunning performance and candid off-stage photography as well as rare memorabilia.

 

The result is a richly presented celebration and your ultimate tribute to the prog-rock masterpiece.
