Offered for sale is a still sealed early U.S. pressing of The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, including both posters and both stickers.
This may be an original 1973 release, or a 1974 or 1975 pressing. As it is still sealed, we have no way of knowing the label or inside cover variation. Post-1975 pressings were on the Capitol label, rather than Harvest, so this is definitely a pressing from no later than 1975.
About this copy: This copy of The Dark Side of the Moon is a mid-1970s US pressing on the Harvest label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. The album should contain two stickers and two posters.
The wrap is fully intact except for a small 1 inch (3 cm) tear near the upper left-hand corner of the back cover.
There is a hype sticker attached to the shrinkwrap that says “Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon.” The sticker does say “Made in USA”; some first pressings had this wording, and some did not. An original price sticker is attached to the wrap.
A nearly perfect copy of a classic LP that rarely turns up in this condition.
Background: 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.
