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 »

Get the DVD, the extras are great!
6 December 2004 | by AmsterdamReprobateSee all my reviews

I got the DVD as a gift and I noticed that the feature documentary on The Dark Side Of The Moon is followed by a DVD-only extra section. This section adds extra footage that was taped but not included in the documentary (probably to avoid making the documentary too long) - an in-depth part on Gilmour's use of the double and triple-tracked guitars, an interview on the nature of Rock 'n Roll with Roger Waters, a story on the background voices, etcetera.

For any fan on Pink Floyd or student of modern music, this DVD is a must-see. Especially noteworthy is the in-depth look at recording and producing Dark Side; since this was pre-computer technology, the stories about the tape-loops to sync the clocks for the intro of Time, the story by Waters on making the cash register sound for Money, using sequencers for the space sounds... Their creativity is astounding.

A few small details were so incredibly interesting - Rick Wright using a piano chord from Miles Davis' Kind of Blue for instance was a revelation for me, as I recognised the chord but couldn't place it.
