The Dark Side Of The Moon (1992) (RMST)
Pink Floyd

Album Description:

THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON is the eighth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd, and was released in March 1973. The concept album built on ideas explored by the band in their live shows and earlier recordings, but it lacks the extended instrumental excursions that characterised their work following the departure in 1968 of founding member, principal composer, and lyricist Syd Barrett. THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON''s themes include conflict, greed, the passage of time and mental illness, the latter partly inspired by Barrett''s deteriorating mental state.

The album was developed as part of a forthcoming tour of live performances, and was premiered several months before studio recording began. The new material was further refined during the tour and was recorded in two sessions in 1972 and 1973 at Abbey Road Studios in London. The group used some of the most advanced recording techniques of the time, including multitrack recording and tape loops. Analogue synthesisers were given prominence in several tracks, and a series of recorded interviews with staff and band personnel provided the source material for a range of philosophical quotations used throughout. Engineer Alan Parsons was directly responsible for some of the most notable sonic aspects of the album, from the non-lexical performance of Clare Torry and stereophonically projected footsteps to planes flying overhead ("On the Run") and a roomful of ringing clocks ("Time"). The album''s iconic sleeve features a prism that represents the band''s stage lighting, the record''s lyrics, and the request for a "simple and bold" design.

THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON was a benchmark record. It turned the musical world on its ear with a hitherto unseen combination of sounds, and changed things considerably for Pink Floyd. For this project, Pink Floyd resurrected older and unfinished numbers, some of which came from the multitude of soundtracks the band members had previously worked on. The film ZABRISKIE POINT, a study of American materialism from a foreigner''s perspective, provided "Us and Them" (originally titled "The Violence Sequence"). Waters rewrote "Breathe" after its appearance on his and avant-garde composer Ron Geesin''s score for THE BODY, a surreal medical documentary.

THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON was an immediate success, topping the Billboard 200 for one week. It subsequently remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988, longer than any other album in history. With an estimated 45 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd''s most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. It has twice been remastered and re-released, and has been covered by several other acts. It spawned two singles, "Money" and "Us and Them". In addition to its commercial success, THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON is one of Pink Floyd''s most popular albums among fans and critics, and is frequently ranked as one of the greatest rock albums of all time. THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON made Pink Floyd a household name, elevating them to the level of the Rolling Stones and The Who in the rock pantheon.
