Mark Blake's history of Pink Floyd -- the first for fifteen years -- has already been acknowledged as the final word on this remarkable band's life. Lucidly written, incorporating over a hundred new and exclusive interviews, it covers Pink Floyd from their Cambridge beginnings in the early sixties to their triumphant re-formation at Live 8 in 2005 24 years after their last live performance together and the death of their troubled founder-member Syd Barrett a year later. Pink Floyd's albums like Dark Side of the Moon remain some of rock's biggest sellers of all every year on CD; Both David Gilmour and Roger Waters continue to do arena and stadium gigs, and the market for this book will exist for many years. In hardback it has reprinted four times already. Aurum's earlier book about the Clash by Blake's Mojo stablemate Pat Gilbert, Passion is a Fashion, has so far sold over 22,000 in paperback -- and the Floyd cult is far larger. Everyone has commented on the superb "flying pig" cover art and the spine treatment visible right across the bookshop: both are retained for this paperback edition.
