How exciting! the first of two competitions we are holding in June 2023! Author Richard Houghton is donating a copy of his book Wish You Were Here – A People’s History of Pink Floyd as a giveaway for the site as part of our 25th anniversary. Even though the book will not be published until October we can still pick a winner this month and Richard will post the winner a copy in October! See below for details on how to win!
Wish You Were Here – A People’s History of Pink Floyd is being published later this year. Originally available in paperback as Pink Floyd – I Was There, this fully revised and expanded edition is being published by Spenwood Books in a limited edition hardback in full colour. With over 500 fan memories of seeing Pink Floyd, from the early days in Cambridge through to Live 8 plus solo shows by Roger, David and Nick, this is a book that no Pink Floyd fan will want to be without and tells the band’s story in a completely unique way.
Priced at £30, the book can be pre-ordered now at a 20% discount (excluding postage) from Spenwood Books, and early bird orderers will get their names included in the book as a sponsor (or you can ask for someone else’s name to be printed in the book). Plus you’ll also qualify for a free hardback copy of Cream – A People’s History (RRP £19.99, while stocks last).
