Echoes: The Complete History of Pink Floyd (Chicago Review Press, April 2010) by super fan and Pink Floyd expert Glenn Povey is the definitive guide to the musical career of Pink Floyd. Offering unprecedented access to the inner workings of progressive rock's most influential band, this lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched labor of love celebrates the band's many accomplishments and the psychedelic style that made them world-famous musical sensations.

Echoes recounts Pink Floyd's rise to fame using source materials such as archived newspaper and magazine articles and other information from concert venues played by the band. Pink Floyd's varied history, shared in author Povey's perceptive and illuminating narrative, is complemented by photographs, reproductions of concert posters and band merchandise and a complete list of their live and taped performances. Povey also includes an exhaustive discography of Pink Floyd recordings and the band members'
solo projects.

From their gigs in tiny church halls to multimillion-selling albums—The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and the rock opera The Wall—and elaborate stadium shows, this tome celebrates legendary rock band Pink Floyd.

Lavishly illustrated with previously unpublished photographs and rare graphic memorabilia, including posters, advertisements, handbills, and tickets from every era of the band's remarkable history, this survey provides a comprehensive overview of the group, its members, and the times. In addition to a biographical account of the band's collective and individual careers—from their pre-Floyd times in the early 1960s to the present day and their music's evolution from psychedelic and space rock to progressive rock genres—this definitive reference presents a meticulously researched chronological listing of every Pink Floyd and solo concert with set lists, radio and television appearances, and a UK and U.S. discography.
Glenn Povey is the coauthor of Pink Floyd: In the Flesh: The Complete Performance History and a contributor to MOJO, Record Collector, and other music magazines. He is a founder and a former editor of the Pink Floyd fanzine Brain Damage and was a booking agent and promoter for a variety of artists, including the Electric Prunes, Gong, Hawkwind, Magma, Ozric Tentacles, the Pretty Things, and the Seeds.
