Description : Comfortably Numb-A History of ?The Wall?: Pink Floyd 1978-1981 is an inside look at one of the most unusual rock and roll stories of all time. The Wall is the tale of a rock star, Pink, and his battle to cope in a world filled with tragedy and hardship. Unable to deal with reality, Pink isolates himself by creating a psychological wall between himself and the world that has caused him so much pain. But even Pink cannot escape from the forces that surround him. He is forced to confront his fears and tear down his wall. The Wall is certainly one of the most intriguing rock concept pieces ever written. Conceived by Roger Waters, and released as an album in 1979 by Pink Floyd, The Wall is the best selling double album of all time. It also spawned the number 1 single, ?Another Brick in the Wall, part 2.? But The Wall became more than a best selling album. It was developed into an elaborate stage presentation which, in 1980 and 1981, thrilled audiences by combining superb musical performances by Pink Floyd with a theatrical presentation that featured giant puppets, animation, and a giant wall across the stage. Pink?s story amazed audiences who witnessed first hand the building of the wall, Pink?s isolation behind the wall, and, at the end of the show, the destruction of the wall as it crumbled before their very eyes. The Wall stage shows have become legendary, and to this day remain one of the most amazing stage spectacles ever presented by a rock band. Every aspect of The Wall is examined in this book in detail, including The Wall story, it?s recording history, the Pink Floyd album, the development of the stage show, insights into how it was staged, and a look back at every single performance of The Wall throughout the world. To compliment the text, this book is lavishly illustrated with over 400 pictures from the Wall era, including numerous rare and previously unpublished photos from the personal collections of the people who were involved in creating The Wall album and stage shows, as well as hundreds of pieces of Wall memorabilia from the Pink Floyd Archives collection. No other book has covered the inside details of rock?s conceptual masterpiece, both in story and pictures, in the way that this book does. Fans of Pink Floyd, contemporary music, and rock & roll theater will find this a truly unique and fascinating book.

Description : In celebration of the 45th anniversary of The Dark Side of the Moon, Bill Kopp explores the ingenuity with which Pink Floyd rebranded itself following the 1968 departure of Syd Barrett. Not only did the band survive Barrett’s departure, but it went on to release landmark albums that continue to influence generations of musicians and fans. Reinventing Pink Floyd follows the path taken by the remaining band members to establish a musical identity, develop a songwriting style, and create a new template for the manner in which albums are made and even enjoyed by listeners. As veteran music journalist Bill Kopp illustrates, that path was filled with failed experiments, creative blind alleys, one-off musical excursions, abortive collaborations, general restlessness, and—most importantly—a dedicated search for a distinctive musical personality. This exciting guide to the works of 1968 through 1973 highlights key innovations and musical breakthroughs of lasting influence. Kopp places Pink Floyd in its historical, cultural, and musical contexts while celebrating the test of fire that took the band from the brink of demise to enduring superstardom.

Description : 'Walk on by', 'I say a little prayer', 'What the world needs now is love', 'Raindrops keep fallin' on my head', 'Alfie', 'What's new, Pussycat?'... The songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David ruled the charts in the '60s, and their songs are still as popular as ever. Current artists such as Oasis, Barenaked Ladies, Elvis Costello and Ben Folds have revisited the Bacharach/David songbook, and their songs have been prominently featured in such hit movies as 'Austin Powers', 'My best friend's wedding' and 'The first wives club'. In 'Burt Bacharach & Hal David - What the world needs now' author Robin Platts draws on archival research and his own interviews with Bacharach and David (and those who worked with them) to create an in-depth look at the duo's career. Platts tells the whole story of their songwriting partnership - from their first collaborations in the '50s through the massive successes of the '60s to their split in the early '70s and their brief reunions in the '90s. There is also coverage of the recent revival of interest in the Bacharach/David songbook, and the many contemporary artists who have been influenced by them and have recorded their songs. The book includes photos of vintage record sleeves, a detailed discography, chart information and a complete annotated list of every song Bacharach and David wrote together.
