For fans , an inside look. I wish they do this with all the albums.
1 July 2012 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of Pink Floyd as soon as I saw the release I was excited; I just finished watching it and I love it.

What you will find here is:

Recent new interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason and some material from Richard Wright before he past and some pictures and archive footage of the Great Syd Barret.

They talk about each song , what it means to them and how it was created ; also Brian Humphries (sound engineer of Wish you were Here) take us through the recording process and Storm Thorgerson talks about the cover and some of the art work.

The band talks about the emotional moment in which Syd appear on Abbey road and at first they didn't recognize him and there's some acoustic playing and singing by Roger and Dave in their interviews.

For the fans it will a nice experience. I'm Happy :=).
