A new book focusing on the formative years of the Floyd is coming on 9th October this year. "Pink Floyd: The Early Years" is being written by Barry Miles. Miles saw the band play when they were still called "The Pink Floyd Sound" and he wrote the first ever article about them for a New York underground newspaper in 1966.

He also knew the band members socially, witnessed the rapid decline of Syd Barrett and became actively involved in setting up some of Floyd's major gigs.

The book promises an "authentic and compelling story of the group that gave alternative London its first real soundtrack and launched on the rock world a radical combination of music, light shows and pyrotechnic stage effects, a revealing diary of Pink Floyd's daily routine, from their roots in Cambridge to cult status in Sixties London."

It covers the period of their career right up to Dark Side Of The Moon, and we've been assured that it is going to be lavishly illustrated with a larget number of unusual, early shots of the band. As and when further information is available, we will let you know...

In the meantime, this book can be ordered through the following special links, for delivery upon release: Amazon US/International, Canada, UK/Europe, France, or Germany. Any item bought through these links at Amazon (not just Floyd items) helps with the running costs of the site, and we really appreciate it.
