Description by OLDIES.com:
This is the story, told from the inside by the participants, of the creation of a masterpiece. "The Dark Side Of The Moon" is the album that dramatically transformed Pink Floyd from art house favorites to global stadium superstars.
Prior to 1973, Pink Floyd had maintained a relentless gigging schedule, and by the time they came to record a new album had already created the basis for what would become "The Dark Side" record. It would be the first album where Roger Waters would supply all the lyrics as well as the basic "concept." With the timeless qualities of its production and musicality, allied to the hypnotic evocation of its central themes - alienation, paranoia, madness, war and death, "The Dark Side Of The Moon" would become the album that would dominate the '70s and '80s (with a record number of consecutive weeks in the charts). Thirty years later, it still strikes a chord with a new generation of music lovers.
This program takes a track by track look at the making of the 1973 album. All four members of the band at that time - Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright - are featured in exclusive interviews. Roger, David and Richard play songs and demonstrate themes from the album. Alan Parsons (the original engineer) takes us through the multi-track tapes, giving a unique insight into the musical fabric of the record. The program is also illustrated throughout with archive footage.
"The Dark Side Of The Moon," with its combination of great songs, inventive effects and one of the best-known sleeves ever, tapped into the world's collective subconscious and became a landmark in rock history and a truly classic album.
Released to coincide with the 30th anniversary of this classic album, learn how Pink Floyd assembled "Dark Side of the Moon" with the aid of original engineer Alan Parsons. All four band members--Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright--are interviewed at length, giving valuable insights into the recording process. The themes of the album are discussed at length, and the band take you back to the original multi track tapes to illustrate how they pieced together the songs. With individual performances of certain tracks from Roger, David, and Richard included, this is an essential purchase for any Pink Floyd fans, and a fascinating artefact for rock historians everywhere.
