PINK FLOYD: 50 Years on The Dark Side

Pink Floyd are marking the 50th anniversary of their eighth and most successful album, 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon, with this Friday's release of a 50th anniversary box set.

It features a newly remastered version of the album on CD and LP, a concert album, The Dark Side of the Moon: Live at Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974, on CD and LP, replica seven-inch singles of "Money" and "Us and Them," a Blu-Ray with the original album in 5.1 and high-resolution remastered stereo mixes, another Blu-Ray with a Dolby Atmos Mix and a DVD with two different 5.1 mixes. 

The set also comes with the Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon: 50th Anniversary book that features rare black and white photographs from their tours of the U.S. and U.K. from 1972 to 1975. (This book will also be published separately on Friday) The list price for the box set is $300.

The Dark Side of the Moon: Live at Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974 will also be released as a stand-alone CD and LP on Friday.

"I remember when the record was finished playing it to my first wife. And I remember she burst into tears at the end of it. And I remember thinking, 'Well, yeah, that's good.' You know, she felt like I did, that it was a powerful piece of work and quite moving. And so I wasn't all that surprised when people started responding to it." -Roger Waters

Roger Waters has re-recorded the album and will release it in May.

To further commemorate the anniversary, Abbey Road Studios and the band have partnered on a line of merchandise -- short and long sleeve t-shirts, bucket hats, hoodies, a tote bag, mugs, key rings, magnets, coasters, shot glasses, guitar picks and straps, as well as a one of a kind session sheet.
