Now Playing

Led Zeppelin - Houses Of The Holy

Pink Floyd - Live At Pompeii (1972)



Alright, it's not a concert film in the traditional sense in that there is no audience, but this is a brilliant document of a band on the cusp of changing the world.

Filmed over four days at the historic ruins, the original release was just an hour long - and that included a full performance of the glorious Echoes. With the benefit of hindsight you can see glimpses of what was to come the following year with the release of Dark Side, but this film is artistically independent of any album - it's a project in its own right that should be regarded alongside any of their classic albums.
