Mark Blake draws on his own interviews with band members as well as the group's friends, road crew, musical contemporaries, former housemates, and university colleagues to produce a riveting history of one of the biggest rock bands of all time. We follow Pink Floyd from the early psychedelic nights at UFO, to the stadium-rock and concept-album zenith of the '70s, to the acrimonious schisms of the late '80s and '90s.

I am a big time Pink Floyd Fan and just love this book. Unlike other people who reviewed, I really enjoy the English accent of the Narrator and think it adds much to the British background of The Floyd. The story is so engaging I listen to it every time I go anywhere in my Jeep and recently bought Dark Side of the Moon in Vinyl, vintage 2018 and had it playing in the background while listening to the audiobook. It really added the ambiance needed to get into the groove that I grew up with in the Seventies , listening to Pink Floyd on 8 Track!

Found in a pillowcase, the fabulous long-lost memoirs of a legendary Hollywood designer – and a genuine Australian original. Orry-Kelly created magic on screen, from Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon to Some Like It Hot. He won three Oscars for costume design. He dressed all the biggest stars, from Bette Davis to Marilyn Monroe. He was an Australian. Yet few know who Orry-Kelly really was - until now.

I really got into this book! I'm into Classic Movies & knew the name Orry-Kellly from his many credits on Turner Classic Movies. I've always been a fashion follower--with a Bachelor's degree in it. This book covers both of these interests & a lot more!
Lots of humor, Art, History, sprinkled with an Aussie geography lesson. A little slow at the start, but worth getting through to the heart of it.
