“Pink Floyd’s status as rock’s greatest visionaries is beyond question, from their early days as psychedelic pioneers in the mid-’60s to their mega-selling ’70s albums The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall and beyond. But how best to negotiate their revered legacy of studio recordings, film soundtracks, rarities compilations, live albums and books?
And what of their members’ solo releases?
Written by MOJO’s team of experts, Pink Floyd Essentials arms you with all the knowledge you need to acquire your ultimate Floyd collection. There are incisive appraisals of all their studio albums, from 1967’s The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn right up until 2014’s ‘posthumous’ The Endless River, as well as fascinating pieces on the film soundtrack LPs the group cut in the early ’70s when their future was uncertain. We also journey track-by-track through their career-spanning compilation Echoes, and take a deep dive into their revelatory Early Years and
Later Years box sets.”
Illustrated throughout with dozens of rare and iconic photographs, Pink Floyd Essentials is an indispensable purchase for all serious music fans.
