Trivia

Clare Torry provided improvised vocals on "The Great Gig in the Sky." All she was told was to think of sadness and death. She was embarrassed by her performance.... The band were speechless. Torry later sued the band for unpaid royalties, eventually scoring a songwriting credit on a 2006 live DVD. See more »

One of those "gotta see" DVDs
23 January 2005 | by (Palm Desert, California) – See all my reviews

It's weird to see the members of Pink Floyd looking so old as they talk about their phenomenal "Dark Side of the Moon" album, but that's life, I suppose. They still have what it takes, as David Gilmour shows us, to crank out the music. This behind the scenes DVD is a bit more cerebral than others I've watched but nonetheless fascinating. It's a bit like watching philosophers pontificate, which is alright, I suppose, considering the Floyd was always a bit more intellectual than most of your garden variety musicians then and now. We also see the man who created the cover art that is probably the most recognized album cover in history and his story of how it came about and how the members of Pink Floyd chose it is revealing in its simplicity. We also find out who the lovely female vocalist on "The Great Gig in the Sky" is and why she felt she had to apologize right after-wards.
