Piper At The Gates Of Dawn This is the definitive critical review of the first Pink Floyd album. Piper stands alone as the only Floyd album on which Sid Barrett wrote the bulk of the material and performed as lead vocalist and guitarist. This independent film review draws on rare film of Pink Floyd performing the songs which make up Piper. In addition to the reflections of the band themselves, the film also features a unique interview with Joe Boyd who discovered Pink Floyd and produced the Arnold Layne single. We also hear the views of Norman Smith the album's producer and John "Hoppy" Hopkins, the original Floyd promoter and pioneer of the famous UFO club, in addition to the incisive views of a leading team of music critics and writers.
Atom Heart Mother Atom Heart Mother was Pink Floyd's first number one album. Ambitious and challenging, the main title piece was an extended instrumental suite co-written and arranged by avant-garde composer Ron Geesin. Thirty-five years on, Ron Geesin revisits the work and describes the circumstances surrounding the creation of the album. We also hear the views of David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason. Also included are review of performances of the prototype work The Amazing Pudding performed by Pink Floyd without the orchestra from radio and television archives, and rare radio archive recordings of a Floyd performing of Fat Old Sun.
Wish You Were Here Wish You Were Here was released in September 1975 as the follow up to Dark Side Of The Moon - a pretty hard act to follow, but in many respects this amazing new album outshone its illustrious predecessor. Shine On You Crazy Diamond with its majestic introduction is arguably the finest recording in the entire Pink Floyd career. On this flawless album every track pulls its weight and the title track Wish You Were Here, which was revived for Live 8, has gone on to achieve classic status.
