This is the defi nitive review of the music and career of Pink Floyd, brought together in one amazing collection.

Ron Geesin gives a blunt appraisal of the making of Atom Heart Mother and Emi Studio engineer Peter Mew remembers the Ummagumma debacle. Vocalist Clare Torry reveals the truth behind The Great Gig In the Sky, while Snowy White and Andy Roberts from Floyd s surrogate band recall the surreal backstage environment during the tour for The Wall as the poisonous rift between Waters and Wright reached its zenith.
