    One thought on “Echoes: The Complete History of "Pink Floyd"”

    1. Really 3.5 stars. While this has a bit of interesting tidbits gleaned from concert dates over the years, if you want the definitive Pink Floyd book, pick up "Saucerful of Secrets" by Nick Schaffner. Lots of good photos in Povey's book, but this is one to check out at your local library.

    2. Impressively detailed and focused on the musical and visual output of the band (as opposed to the personal gossip that too frequently mars band bios). Read it for the archival accounting of virtually every known Pink Floyd (and pre Pink Floyd and post Pink Floyd) performance. This is a fascinating deep dive for serious Floyd fans (but also a fun page-through for casual listeners). 4.5/5 stars

    3. There is a small percentage of people out here in the world who simply cannot get enough "minutiae" (I hope I spelled that right". They like names, dates, and possible scandal, but most of all just the innocent and mundane moment to moment details of events and lives. This is why Civil War books are still so damn popular because there are individuals in the world who get a smug satisfaction on knowing how many rounds were fired at the Battle of Antietam.When it comes to music, I am that smug per [...]

    4. Dagli albori con il poliedrico genio malato di Syd Barrett, passando dall'arrivo di Gilmour, toccando le varie occasioni cinematografiche di More e Zabriskie Point fino ai capolavori indiscussi di Dark Side of the Moon, Division Bell e The Wall. Non mancano particolari sulle diatribe interne fra i membri e lo rimangono cristallizzate le emozioni dovute allo scioglimento per motivi puramente economici. Una lezione di storia piacevolissima e ricca di colpi di scena che solo una band come i Pink Fl [...]

    5. Did I really need a complete compendium of every gig Pink Floyd ever played? No, not really but someone out there apparently did. So, this one's for you, crazy Pink Floyd fans; 'cause there sure are a lot of you (See, I could have turned that into a really bad joke about mentally unbalanced gemstones radiating electromagnetic radiation in the visible spectrum, but I didn't. That shows restraint.)

    6. Any true Pink Floyd fan should own this book. Great reference information. And Tom, although Syd Barrett was a remarkable writer/lyricist (not so much a musician), there was/is more to Pink Floyd after his departure.

    7. Troppo dettagliato. Ovvero dettagliatissimo sui concerti, le date, le scalette. Molto più parco sulla storia del gruppo. Quattro stelle è forse troppo, ma tre mi pare seriamente troppo poco

    8. Amazing summary of all that is, was and will be Pink Floyd.From the humble beginnings through the tumultuous times this book covers every detail, feeling and happening.Highly recommended.
