Classic Albums: Pink Floyd - The Making of 'The Dark Side of the Moon' (2003)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason are all on hand giving interviews about the making of their classic 1973 album, which spent a record 741 consecutive weeks on Billboard's charts. This 49-minute documentary takes a look at the making of the film as the musicians go through each song explaining how they came to be as well as talking about original versions or alternate takes. Some of the best moments come from Waters playing alternate versions including a blues version of "Money" which sounds terrific. Even if you're not a fan of the album I don't see how anyone could listen to it and not be curious about how it was made. The album is certainly one of the greatest ever made but it's so magical that you really do wonder how anyone could create such an item and especially with the type of technology they had during that era. The four musicians talk about the recording process and we also get to hear from some of the sound technicians, mic mixers and others. Journalists Nigel Williamson, David Fricke and Robert Sandall also offer up their comments on the album as a whole and individual songs. Fans of Pink Floyd are certainly going to be entertained by all of these stories and it's great hearing the process of what it took to get the album recorded and released.
