New eBook: The Making Of Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii

Recently published in eBook format on the Amazon Kindle platform, is The Making Of Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii by Samuel Sleiman.

For Floyd fans, the concept of Live At Pompeii is well known - indeed, we here at Brain Damage have a four part interview with director Adrian Maben covering the story. Sleiman pulls together material and research from multiple sources, including our interview, alongside his own chats with Maben, and original crew members, to take a detailed look at the project - from the early ideas about a concert film, through to the filming, and subsequent additional footage.

Despite its short length (understandable as it just covers this one project), The Making Of Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii is an absorbing read, setting out the initial struggles to get the concept off the ground, the issues with filming in the historic location, and then the story from initial release onwards. For the first time, there's a lot of information on Maben and his background, and how it influenced the idea of what was really an anti-Woodstock type film.

Despite it being an eBook, there are a selection of images included too. There are some great shots from "behind the scenes" of the shoot, not that the mechanics of the filming were ever hidden (one of the points of the production, obviously), but these pictures give further insight into the conditions in the amphitheatre.

Kindle eBooks can be viewed on Apple and Android devices, using the free app, as well as on Kindle readers, of course. You can buy the book, for immediate delivery, via: Amazon UK, Amazon.comAmazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy.
