The Dark Side of the Moon - Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 55/500!
A 1974 performance of Dark Side of the Moon recorded at Wembley's Empire Pool in London available on vinyl for the first time. LP in gatefold sleeve, with two posters featuring design by Ian Emes and Gerald Scarfe. Cover design by Aubrey Powell/Hipgnosis and Peter Curzon/Storm Studios. Featuring original 1973 line drawn cover artwork by George Hardie.
Listen for how backing vocalists Venetta Fields and Carlena Williams replicate the echo effect on the main vocals of 'Us and Them,' or Richard Wright's glorious synth solo on 'Any Colour,' or how well the instrumentalists stretch out on extended vamps throughout. It makes me yearn for a great visual document of this tour to be able to marvel at the musicians in action.
