Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums List — Rated 43/500

Pink Floyd – The Dark Side Of The Moon, this is Pink Floyd at its collective finest, with everyone contributing.

David Gilmour took a huge chunk of the music — writing, laying down the chord progressions on “Breathe,” “Time,” and “Any Colour You Like,” plus the singing on the album’s best songs, Water conceding to David’s far superior voice.

Gilmour also pumped out what would later be hailed as some of rock’s most influential lead-guitar riffs on “Money” and “Brain Damage.”

By all industry standards, The Dark Side Of The Moon is a phenomenon.

Known for its complex instrumental textures, the album firmly established Pink Floyd as one of the most innovative bands in rock history.

A concept album, its themes explore conflict, greed, time, and mental illness, the latter partly inspired by the deteriorating health of founding member Syd Barrett, who left in 1968.

The Dark Side of the Moon produced two singles: “Money” and “Us and Them.”

The album topped the Billboard chart for a week, and remained on the chart for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988.

Following a change in how Billboard counts sales in 2009, it re-entered the chart and has since appeared for over 900 weeks.

With estimated sales of more than 45 million, it is Pink Floyd’s bestselling album and one of the bestselling worldwide.

Analogue Productions

It was in 1992 that Acoustic Sounds owner Chad Kassem reissued his first Analogue Productions title, Virgil Thompson’s The Plow That Broke The Plains, originally on Vanguard.

Analogue Productions began as a vehicle for Kassem to license his favorite all-time recordings and reissue them as remastered and as a superior version to the original release.

Since its inception AP has reissued hundreds of titles, ranging from classical to folk, pop, rock, blues and jazz.

Included in the many highlights of Analogue Productions’ history are the Fantasy 45 Jazz Reissues, the Blue Note Reissues, and premium box sets of the music of such legendary acts as The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nat “King” Cole and Norah Jones.

True to its name, Analogue Productions works with the original analogue master tapes – more than any other reissue label! The result is superior sound – richer, warmer and more lifelike, than digital.
