Offering in-depth critical insight into the music of Pink Floyd, this is the revised second edition of the encyclopedic guide to both the recorded and live works from 1975 to 1996. Pink Floyd was arguably the most innovative band of the 1960s and 70s, moving quickly beyond their early R & B-influenced rock sound to experiment with instrumentation and lyrics. They incorporated psychedelic feedback, reverb, and all manner of electronic augmentation in pursuit of a truly unique sound. Presented here is the definitive critical take on the band from WISH YOU WERE HERE to PULSE, including live and studio performances of material from each album, including THE WALL, THE FINAL CUT, and A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON. Also included is the infamous performance broadcast from a stage floating on a lagoon in Venice during The Delicate Sound of Thunder tour.
