The most phenomenal recording in rock & roll history is thoroughly examined in Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon. The Floyd’s 1973 masterpiece remained on bestseller charts for nearly 14 years, and its enduring importance is honored here by all four members of Pink Floyd and key personnel (engineer Alan Parsons, mixing supervisor Chris Thomas, sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson, and others) who played essential roles in the landmark album’s creation. Produced for the Classic Albums series that originally aired on VH-1, this thorough and thought-provoking study highlights a track-by-track dissection of the LP’s master tapes (including the spoken-word passages that bookend the album), superbly interlaced with archival footage, early demo tapes, concert animations, and latter-day acoustic performances by David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright to demonstrate each track’s contribution to the final mix–a sonic exploration that extends to the illuminating bonus features

    Barry, I love Pink Floyd, and I love DSOTM, but for my money, no album is better than Shine On You Crazy Diamond. I still think David Gilmour plays his angriest guitar on that album. That is how a Stratocaster is supposed to sound.

    Thanks Barry!! I Loved It!! It took me back to a Great time and a Great Place in my life!! My best friend put me onto the DSOTM when I was 15 yo I think. I have never forgotten when He said this album blew everything else away…..and he was right! He died of cancer in 1998.

    Even after all these years, this album can still pull me out of the present time and deliver me to a different place and HOLD Me there until the moment and emotion passes…..very powerful stuff!!

    thanks again!!
