This is a his-torical look at Pink Floyd, as seen through press reports of the major music papers during the years 1966 to 1983.

Read what the press had to say about the beginnings of Pink Floyd in 1966, the rise of psychedelia in 1967, the replacement of Syd Barrett with David Gilmour in 1968 the various film soundtrack projects of the early 1970s the use of brass and choir sections for Atom Heart Mother in 1970, the landmark Dark Side of the Moon album in 1973, the Animals tour that culminated in the massive Pink Floyd show in Montreal in 1977, the amazing Wall album, concerts and movie in the early 1980s, and Roger Waters' final album with the band, The Final Cut, in 1983. Glean a unique insight into how the band handled these events, and how they were received by the public and the press.
