Pink Floyd Publication Date: 10th May 2019. Customers who pre-order by 25th March can have their names printed in the book on a dedicated fan page.  

Spanning more than half a decade Pink Floyd has rightly earned its place as one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
From the early, experimental and often whimsical days with band leader Syd Barrett to the more expansive style with Dave Gilmour onboard, leading to the masterpiece Dark Side Of The Moon that elevated Floyd into the stratosphere.
But success came at a price as personal relationships suffered, culminating in break-ups as eventually Roger Waters departed. But stadiums and huge arenas continued to welcome Floyd through the eighties and nineties with a brief reunion with Waters for 2005’s Live 8 event.  
Captured Through Time is a photographic celebration of this truly iconic band that takes you on a journey from the psychedelic, avant-garde sixties to the present day including off stage shots of all band members during the 2000s including Syd Barrett!

Many of the photos have never been published in print before, including a sequence of shots from the Animals tour in 1977 that have only just been developed from the original negatives and digitally restored for this publication.
In total, over 100 glorious images of Floyd both on and off stage through the decades are included in this large format hardback book. Housed in a bespoke, custom-made, buckram presentation box with holographic block foil, it also includes 3 prints, ideal for framing and is strictly limited to 500 worldwide.
Hardback: 297 x 210 mm, 128pp, in a custom-made, holographic block foil presentation case with a set of 3 prints.

 

Talking to Rolling Stone about ‘Bike’, one of his favourite Barrett-penned songs, Mason said: “The lyrics to this are so very Syd, astonishingly clever.

“It’s fun, but there’s a depth of sadness to them. When I listen to it now, I realise how young and immature we were and how hopeless we were at coming to grips with Syd’s breakdown.”

Mason continued: “So many songs were written by Syd in such a short time period. It was less than two years from out first public show in October of 1967.
