Description by OLDIES.com:
This documentary film reviews this era in detail and covers the band's live performances and studio recordings, as well as their lives and career across the 1968 - 1973 period and in doing so sheds fresh light on how Pink Floyd became one of the biggest bands ever. Includes archive interviews with the group plus rare and studio performance footage, contributions and insight from luminaries including Floyd producer Norman Smith, friend and colleague Peter Banks (from Yes), touring bassist Hugh Hopper and other friends, colleagues and associates. Along with Pink Floyd biographer Mark Blake, Wire magazine's David Stubbs and ambient author Mark Prendergast, this film lifts the lid on this pivotal period in Pink Floyd's exceptional career.
This documentary analyzes the period of Pink Floyd's history from 1968-1973 when the group was forced to adjust to the departure of their ostensible leader Syd Barett, and found a sound that formed the building blocks for their classic albums including Dark Side of the Moon. The filmmakers interview contemporaries and critics in order to put this period of the band in proper perspective.
