Late last year, a new book was published by Apach Edition in Belgium. Showcasing the rock concert photography of Paul Coerten, the book is his tribute to the rock of the 1970s and 1980s - "the best of his archives". With 80% of the pictures never previously having been published, the book has been released to coincide with rock music's 50th anniversary. There's more than 120 bands and major musicians included, and over 400 images.

Of particular interest to us are a number of rare pictures of Pink Floyd live in Antwerp, during the 1977 Animals tour. And, with thanks to the publishers, we have a selection of these Floyd pictures, and one exclusive shot of Roger Waters that doesn't appear in the book, to share with you. They should give you a flavour of what to expect in the book...

It is a big, glossy and expensive publication, but is it worth tracking down? To give you an idea, read our review through this link, which also has the picture selection.
