Ron Geesin - The Flaming Cow: The Making of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart MotherLast year, we brought you the news that Ron Geesin's 'The Flaming Cow: The Making of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother' was due for publication at some point this year. More details have now been revealed of the book, along with a very striking cover - see right.

With a street date of July 17th, 2013, The Flaming Cow offers a rare insight into the brilliant but often fraught collaboration between Pink Floyd and composer Geesin, the result of which became known as Atom Heart Mother - the Floyd's first UK number one album.

From the time drummer Nick Mason visited Geesin's damp basement flat in Notting Hill, to the last game of golf between bassist Roger Waters and Geesin, this book is an unflinching account about how one of Pink Floyd's most celebrated compositions came to life. Alongside unpublished photographs from the Abbey Road recording sessions (the only ones taken) and the subsequent performances in London and Paris, Geesin goes on to describe how the title was chosen, why he was not credited on the record, how he left Hyde Park in tears, and why the group did not much like the work. The Flaming Cow rose again, firstly in France, then in London in 2008. After 40 years Atom Heart Mother remains a much-loved record, and The Flaming Cow explores its new-found cult status that has led to it being studied for the French Baccalaureat.

The book - with a foreword by Nick Mason - promises to be a great read, and we're certainly looking forward to it. You can place your order for this hardback book right now through these direct links: Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Espana and Amazon Italy, who all run a pre-order price guarantee, which means if they price match any other retailer between now and release, or indeed drop the price further, you automatically pay the lowest price.
