Stylised as PŸUŸLŸSŸE, the album is directed by veteran music video and concert director David Mallet. Shot on video during Pink Floyd’s two-week stint at London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre in October 1994, this 145-minute performance (from Floyd’s Division Bell tour) is a sonic marvel to behold. This is followed by four tracks from The Division Bell tour, two from 1987’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason, Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) from 1979’s magnum opus The Wall, and leading into intermission with the performance of One of These Days, the opening track from 1971’s Meddle. The centrepiece is a near-perfect performance of 1974’s Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety.
