Here is an intimate portrait of a legendary group on the rise. Author Barry 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. Miles watched them progress from being an R&B covers band to become the legendary musical force that would create one of the most successful albums of all time - The Dark Side of the Moon. He also knew the band members socially, witnessed the rapid decline of Syd Barrett and became actively involved in setting up some of the Floyd's major gigs. Here then is the 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.
