Trivia:
Cue cards were written to interview crew members and other artists recording at Abbey Road at that time. Some examples; "When was the last time you were violent and were you in the right?" "What does the phrase 'dark side of the moon' mean to you?" Paul McCartney's guitarist (Henry McCullough) contributed the immortal "I dunno, I was really drunk at the time" line, while the laughter heard during "Brain Damage" and "Speak to Me" came from Naomi Watts' dad, Peter.See more »

One of those "gotta see" DVDs, 23 January 2005
Author: The Gryphon from Palm Desert, California

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.
