The music of Pink Floyd - colorful, imaginative, surrealistic and highly inventive - lends itself very well to visual representation. Shot in and around an ancient amphitheatre among the ruins of old Pompeii, on "Live At Pompeii: The Directors Cut" Pink Floyd treat the viewer to a stunning audio-visual experience. This session was skillfully recorded in the sun splashed arena by day and amidst the eerily-lit scene of volcanic destruction by night, and is a perfect transition from audio to video media. The set begins and ends with the massive composition "Echoes" from the album "Meddle".
Director Adrian Maben brings us a brand new version of a legendary film. In addition to the existing interviews shot during the 1972 recording of "Dark Side Of The Moon", this cut features unique, personal footage of the band working on "ive At Pompeii in Paris, atmospheric space shots and a host of new visual effects. Also included on this DVD is an interview with Adrian Maben discussing the creation of both the original film and the extended Director's Cut.
