Dark Side of the Moon, released in 1973 had turned Pink Floyd into one of the biggest bands in the world. But how do you follow up one of the greatest albums of all time? The camaraderie that had been evident on earlier Floyd albums was no longer evident and as Roger Waters has said ‘We were no longer a band of brothers’. This film explores the album and the themes running through it – namely loss and how the group were affected by the enormous success of Dark Side of the Moon.
After six months in Abbey Road studios the album shot to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, Pink Floyd had achieved the impossible again; they had reached the top and were still travelling upwards.
