Descriptions du produit

De concerts dans des salles de petite église dans le milieu des années soixante à plusieurs millions d'albums à vendre et le stade de superbes spectacles partout dans le monde, l'histoire de Pink Floyd est une légende du rock.
Ce livre remarquable est une célébration de toute sa carrière de Pink Floyd en 2007, marquant l'anniversaire officiel 40ème, ils ont commencé l'enregistrement. Il contient un récit biographique de la carrière individuelle et collective du groupe de leur pré-Floyd origines en 1962 jusqu'à la aujourd'hui.
Echoes combine également, pour la première fois, une liste chronologique des recherches méticuleuses toutes simples de Pink Floyd et de concert solo, ensemble l'apparence liste, TV et radio, ainsi qu'un Royaume-Uni et des États-Unis discographie.
illustré tout au long avec une richesse de photographies rares et inédites ainsi que de rares souvenirs graphiques, y compris des affiches, des annonces, des prospectus et des billets à partir de l'ère de l'histoire jamais remarquables de la bande, il est, tout simplement, le plus complet compte de Pink Floyd en version imprimée.

Wish as much care had been taken with the text as the research 7 mai 2009
Par Jeffrey W. Heikkinen - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Author Glenn Povey discusses the extensive research he did for this book at great length, and it shows in the many otherwise unpublished photos, the nearly comprehensive set lists, and other interesting archival material he managed to dig up. The layout does justice to the material; the book is at nearly every point visually striking. This is a worthwhile purchase (especially at the theft-like price I was able to find it for at Half-Price Books).

However, while I will give Povey the benefit of the doubt that he really did put as much effort into his research as he says, not nearly as much care seems to have been taken to make the text reflect that. In the opening chapter I found one stretch with three errors, or at least things in need of further explanation, in as many pages. In the first full paragraph on page 19 there is a bizarre transition where it suddenly and confusingly jumps from talking about Syd Barrett's personality to David Gilmour's without any warning, as though a couple of sentences had been dropped; on page 20 the text says Barrett would play bass with his other band, Those Without, when in Cambridge, but the picture clearly shows him playing a guitar, with someone else playing bass (we don't see the bass player, only the tuning pegs of his instrument sticking into the picture); on page 21, in the picture of the Ramblers (a band David Gilmour was briefly a part of), I would think their manager would, contrary to the caption, be the older man with the cane third from the left, not the teenaged-looking guitarist on the far right.

A book that much research went into should by all rights be the definitive source on the band, but this just isn't. Not only are there a number of obvious errors or at least "WTF?" moments like the above (perhaps the biggest - Povey claims as fact that Alan Parker has enough footage to make a good Wall concert film, every other source with which I'm familiar says all efforts to shoot one were hopelessly botched), but there just isn't *enough* text for this to be such a book. I estimate that Povey's narrative covers only about a third of the book's 368 pages, and many of that third are dominated by large photographs and blown-up quotes.

The rest of the book is dominated by minutiae like comprehensive lists of concert dates (most with setlists) and an extremely detailed discography. Don't get me wrong, much of this material is interesting in its own right, at least for a slightly OCD Floyd nerd like myself, but scintillating and insightful reading it isn't.

I guess what's there isn't bad, but what isn't there definitely disappoints.

I love this book, and refer to it on a weekly basis. This is a must for any hard core Floyd fan. It has great photos, an amazing chronology of every known Pink Floyd show, and amazing details of one of the greatest band's ever.

This book and Nick Mason's book are bibles for the history of the Floyd. A must have tor the die hard fans, and also would be enjoyable for the casual listener. A plethora of pictures and info make it a must have!
