Jazzville Skyline: “By The Way, Which One’s Pink?”

David Gilmore, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Syd Barrett…together, in various configurations, they made up one of the most celebrated and longest-lasting bands in history…Pink Floyd…

To this day, their album, “Dark Side Of The Moon” is still one of the biggest selling albums, despite the fact that it’s been over 40 years since its release…

Their follow-up to that masterpiece was another masterpiece, “Wish You Were Here”, which is now being celebrated in a brilliant new documentary about the making of the album, simply titled, “The Story Of Wish You Were Here”, which not only encapsulates that period in the band’s career, but also gives great insight into the music business in general…(and the bonus features are definitely not to be missed…)

But wait…there’s more…

In addition, there is also another new documentary release about the Floyd entitled “Now And Then”, a double-disc set which covers their career from start to (almost) finish, since they have yet to throw in the towel altogether…

Disc one tends to focus largely on the album “Meddle”, while the second disc shows their rapid decline as bandmates and friends, from “Animals” on…

However, with the passing of founding member Mr. Wright, no matter what happens from here on, it will never be the same…

His sensitivity and creativity was a main component in what made Pink Floyd ‘Pink Floyd’ in the first place (…all you have to do is listen to “Great Gig In The Sky” to be reminded of that…)

And while it may be nice now to see Gilmore and Waters come to some understanding in their differences, thankfully we at least have two new documentaries to remind ourselves just how good it was back then…
