The music of Pink Floyd – colourful, imaginative, surrealistic, and highly inventive - lends itself very well to visual interpretation. Shot in and around an ancient amphitheatre among the ruins of old Pompeii, Pink Floyd treat the viewer to a stunning audio-visual experience. This session was skillfully recorded in the sun splashed arena by day, and amidst the eerily-lit scene of volcanic destruction by night, and is a perfect transition from audio to video media. The set begins and ends with the massive composition "Echoes" from the album "Meddle" and also includes the following titles: - Echoes - Careful With That Axe, Eugene - A Saucerful of Secrets - Us and Them - One of These Days - Mademoiselle Nobs - Brain Damage - Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun - Echoes Director Adrian Maben brings us a brand new version of a legendary film. In addition to the existing interviews shot during the 1972 recording of Dark Side Of The Moon, this cut features unique, personal footage of the band working on "Live at Pompeii" in Paris, atmospheric space shots and a host of new visual effects. Also included on this dvd is an interview with Adrian Maben discussing the creation of both the original film and the extended Director's Cut.
I never knew that

Listened to and loved the Floyd on and off for ages but didn't know much about them. This sounds and looks good and is also a great insight into the men behind the machines. Make sure the neighbours are out!
