Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 55/500!
One of the most iconic and influential albums ever, Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon celebrates its 50th Anniversary.
The album was partly developed during live performances, and the band premiered an early version of the suite at London's Rainbow Theatre several months before recording began. The Dark Side of the Moon is the eighth studio album by Pink Floyd, originally released in March 1973. The new material was recorded in 1972 and 1973 at EMI Studios (now Abbey Road Studios) in London. The iconic sleeve, which depicts a prism spectrum, was designed by Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis and drawn by George Hardie. The Dark Side of the Moon has sold over 50 million copies worldwide.
First released as part of The Dark Side of the Moon 50th Anniversary Box Set, this is the first time that the new remaster of the classic album will be available on its own on Blu-ray. The Blu-ray contains the Dolby Atmos and a 5.1 Surround mix as well as the remastered Stereo version. The package comes with commemorative postcard, stickers and a 24-page booklet.
