Pink Floyd on the Pulse

On 5th December 2005, Pink Floyd will release their much anticipated DVD, PULSE, on EMI Records. This landmark release, captures the last Pink Floyd Division Bell tour in 1994, and was filmed at London's Earls Court during their record-breaking 14 night residency. The two disc release contains the full concert performance with rare backstage footage and previously unseen extras.

There are many elements that make this Pulse release a must-have, but top of the list is that here, for the first time ever, is a live filmed performance of Pink Floyd's towering, seminal album, Dark Side of the Moon. The album in its glorious entirety is performed by David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright during the second half of the concert and appears on disc 2. Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2), High Hopes and Learning to Fly are some of the classic tracks on disc 1 with never before seen rarities such as Bootlegging the Bootleggers and behind the scenes footage showing a snapshot of life on the road with one of the world's biggest rock bands.

The stunning Pulse DVD graphics are designed by long-time Pink Floyd collaborator, Storm Thorgersen who has made the DVD look as good as it sounds. It is mixed in mind expanding 5.1 surround sound and digitally remastered by James Guthrie. The DVD includes some of the Dark Side of the Moon original screen films used in the 1970's concerts which were never filmed, as well others remade for the 1994 tour.

The Pulse DVD vividly captures the essence of Pink Floyd, both as a live band and as a visual tour de force, qualities that were both well to the fore at their show-stopping appearance at this year's Live 8.
