A comprehensive look at the unique recording history of Pink Floyd, one of the world's most commercially successful and influential rock bands. Pink Floyd All the Songs tells the full story of every recording session, album, and single that the band has released.
Since 1965, Pink Floyd been recording sonically experimental and philosophical music, selling more than 250 million records worldwide, including two of the best-selling albums of all time Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. In Pink Floyd All the Songs, authors Margotin and Guesdon describe the origins of the band's nearly 200 released songs, including details from the recording studio, what instruments were used, and behind-the-scenes stories of the tensions that helped drive the band.
Organized chronologically by album, this massive, 544-page hardcover begins with the band's 1967 debut album *The Piper at the Gates of Dawn—*the only one recorded under founding member Syd Barrett's leadership—and runs all the way through their 2014 farewell album, The Endless River, which was downloaded 12 million times on Spotify during its first week of release. Packed with more than 500 photos, Pink Floyd All the Songs is also filled with stories that fans will treasure, such as Waters working with engineer Alan Parsons to implement revolutionary recording techniques on The Dark Side of the Moon during sessions at Abbey Road Studios in 1972, and producer Bob Ezrin's contributions that helped refine Waters' original sprawling vision for The Wall.
