Pink Floyd : The Making of the Dark Side of the Moon is a documentary about the making of the classic album, "Dark Side of the Moon" which also happens to be one of the largest selling albums of all time ...
This documentary is part of the Classic Albums series, released by Isis Productions/Eagle Rock Entertainment. This one does manage to unite the band under one single film, albeit only via separate interviews at various different locations. It also features interviews with the album's engineer Alan Parsons, two music journalists, the former chairman of their record label and Storm Thorgerson.
Produced for the Classic Albums series that originally aired on VH-1, this thorough and thought-provoking study highlights a track-by-track dissection of the LP's master tapes (including the spoken-word passages that bookend the album), superbly interlaced with archival footage, early demo tapes, concert animations, and latter-day acoustic performances by David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright to demonstrate each track's contribution to the final mix--a sonic exploration that extends to the illuminating bonus features. Informative interviews abound (including Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke), and much-deserved credit is given to saxophonist Dick Parry, solo vocalist Clare Torry, and former Capitol Records chairman Bhaskar Menon, who fostered the album's U.S. commercial success.
Dark Side of the Moon released in March 1973, remained on the charts for nearly 14 years ...
