Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition 30th anniversary pressing of The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, pressed in the EU in 2003.
This LP was pressed on 180 gram vinyl and includes all original inserts – two posters and two stickers, along with a special insert with details about the pressing.
About this copy: This copy of The Dark Side of the Moon is a 2003 issue, pressed in the EU on the EMI/Harvest label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a sticker on the wrap that says “Made in Holland.”
A beautiful copy of a classic LP and our preferred pressing of the album for listening.
Background: For the 30th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side of the Moon, EMI went back to the original master tapes and mixed a new two track master tape, as the original master tapes had long been worn out from excessive use.
The LP was then pressed on high quality 180 gram vinyl and packaged with all of the original inserts.
The result is, in our opinion, the best sounding version of The Dark Side of the Moon we’ve ever heard. We have a copy of this in our collection and we prefer it to both the Mobile Fidelity UHQR pressing and the original UK “blue triangle” pressing.
This one sounds terrific.
The Dark Side of the Moon was Pink Floyd’s eighth album and it’s the one that made them superstars. Reaching #1 in the U.S. and #2 in the UK, the album is one of the biggest selling albums in history.
While the album topped the U.S. charts for only one week, it spent 741 weeks in the U.S. top 200 – fifteen years.
Allmusic.com gave The Dark Side of the Moon a rare 5 star review:
By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest instrumental sections, Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon. …Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one.
