Recorded April to November 1979 at Super Bear Studios, France, CBS, New York and Producer's Workshop, Los Angeles.
Artwork: Roger Waters,
Bruce Johnston, Toni Tennille, Joe Chemay, John Joyce, Stan Farber, Jim Haas and singers of the Islington Green School choir.
Probably the most famous Pink Floyd album.
The project was right from the beginning divided into three parts the album,
the film and
the stage performance (during which was the audience separated from the band by a giant wall built of cardboard bricks, so that the band was not visible for the latter half of the show).
Some of the tracks appeared in the film only, others were just on the album.
During the recording the rupture between the members of the band reached its peak, which caused
Richard Wright and later
not to take part in the recording.
Rick was then forced to leave the band.
The booklet includes the lyrics of What Shall We Do Now, which is not on the album due to lack of space. The lyrics of The Show Must Go On were shortened.
