We last told you about the paperback and audiobook CD of Nick Mason's excellent book, "Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd", back on 14th June, which are both due for release next month.

Nick Mason is doing the final mix of the CD this week, so at last we can come out with the inside story for you!

Nick has been fully and enthusiastically involved throughout the production of the audio version of Inside Out. As well as enjoying recording his reading of the book, he has added a typically Floydian flourish to proceedings. As he says, "To fit the book on the CDs we had to lose a couple of jokes, so we’ve added a lot of funny noises instead!"

The chapters have been linked together by short montages which blend Nick’s selection from the sound and musical effects on Pink Floyd’s albums with additional, new sound FX, including Nick's beloved Ferrari 250GTO.

The use of these effects has been a trademark of all Floyd albums, from the radio voices on Astronomy Domine from their debut album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn to the heartbeat that opens The Dark Side Of The Moon and the peals of bells on The Division Bell.

For once we can genuinely say this is an audiobook that comes complete with bells and whistles – not to mention some Arctic winds, Venetian canals, telephones, aeroplanes and a squealing pig or two!

This audiobook brings us right up to date with Nick's personal view of the band's reunion with Roger Waters for Live8. The whole package comes as 3 CDs, with a 32-page booklet of photographs, in a special collector's pack, priced at £15.99, and will be released on 6 October.

The paperback of Inside Out, also updated with Live8 recollections, will be published at the same time, price £9.99.

The addition of the Live8 reunion section will make both items very tempting propositions, even if the original book is already owned. Advance orders for the book are being taken now through our special Amazon links. With regard to the audiobook, this is available from Amazon UK on CD or Cassette, Amazon Canada on CD or Cassette, Amazon Germany on CD or Cassette, and Amazon France on CD or Cassette. Any items ordered from Amazon after entering their site from one of our special links, helps towards running costs of our site, and we appreciate it!

Our thanks to Elizabeth and Alexa at the publishers, Orion, for their continued help.
