Following our previous news stories about John Harris's eagerly anticipated book, "The Making Of The Pink Floyd Masterpiece, The Dark Side of The Moon", the book has now been published worldwide, and we've taken a good look at it.

Artwork by Storm Thorgerson
The hardback book is an excellent, indepth analysis of the album, and has been designed by Storm Thorgerson and his team. The highly detailed cover is typical of their great work, and the glass marble casting a shadow will no doubt be cause for some debate!

The book itself features the whole story of the album, from the early days of the band, through to every aspect of the development of the music and recording, retold through the extensive interviews obviously done with all members of the band, together with other key individuals involved.

The book is bolstered with rare photographs; the US edition is peppered throughout with unusual shots, many of which have come from Nick Mason's own archives. The UK edition features a selection of these shots. The first-hand interviews, and the use of Nick's pictures, give an added edge to the book, distancing it from other books which can sometimes be simply rehashes of other published works.

Be sure to read our review of John Harris's book, and also check out the special website that has been set up to coincide with the release. is definitely worth a visit - alongside information about the book and the author, there is a ten picture photo gallery which includes four from Nick's archives (such as Earls Court 1973 and Syd Barrett, late 1967), and four from Jill Furmanovsky's archives (such as Brighton 1972, on stage). There is also an excerpt from the book - the prologue.

Orders for this long-awaited book can be placed through these special links: (US/International), Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, France and Germany.
