 Due Oct. 28 from
Eagle Vision DVD is the two-hour feature film documentary A Technicolor
Dream
.

More than just the story of the British 1960s underground movement that
culminates at “The 14-Hour Technicolor Dream” (an all-night happening at Alexandra Palace on April 29, 1967), it also
offers a crucial look at a young Pink Floyd (with the mythic Syd Barrett). This
DVD comes complete with three full bonus Pink Floyd performances – “Astronomy
Domine,” “Scarecrow” and “Arnold Layne” – with Barrett on guitar and vocals
from 1967, as well as additional interviews with Roger Waters, Nick Mason and
others not seen in the original BBC broadcast version. The Crazy World of
Arthur Brown and the Pretty Things are in the film as well performing and being
interviewed.

 

 

According to Eagle Vision, “From the London Free School and
UFO Club to the Notting Hill Carnival, this is the story of an activist
generation and how that generation-like their stateside counterparts-protested
inequality and injustice. The sense of community that bonded such a generation
to see wrongs and try to right them hasn’t been seen since. The marches, the mania,
the fact that back then, activism was part of the daily fabric of youth
culture, seems almost impossible in this day and age. Those who lived it,
though, on either side of the Atlantic, know
what it felt like. Those who didn’t, can only watch a film like this and
imagine.”
