The Dark Side Of The Moon
About this deal
No barcode on sleeve. Under the SHVL 804 I have the IE 064-05249. Inside gatefold bottom left, I have the L 7303. After enjoying this 2016 cut for several years and, in the spirit of finding the “iconic” analogue cuts, I bought NM copies of MoFi’s 1979 and Kevin Gray’s 2003 pressings. I admit I haven’t heard a UK OG pressing (I’m trying to get a German OG from Michael Ludwig), but this 2016 sounds cleaner, fatter, and clearer than both analogue cuts I own. That’s not to say it’s the best cut out there - obviously - but it is to say these 2016 remasters are phenomenal, especially if you just want great sounding pressings of these records for a great price. I also have the 2016 cuts of WYWH and had ANIMALS, before I replaced it with the “2018” remix (which is the best version of ANIMALS to my ears due to the remix). But the 2016 ANIMALS reissue did sound great for the original mix.
In March, Pink Floyd will release a new deluxe box set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their classic 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon.There are 3 sleeve opening variations. 1. The right front opening of the gatefold cover is sealed with the two sides glued together. 2. The right front opening of the gatefold cover is sealed with a fold-over flap that is glued inside the opening. 3. The right front opening of the gatefold cover is not sealed. Its not to say that it doesnt use the high end to effect though, the guitars have just as much clarity and air if not more even, on the original. It then gives the lower end some more ground to stand on simultaneously.
The right front opening of the gate-fold cover is sealed with a fold over flap that is glued inside the opening.
Front Cover: Very dark blue with prism. The front cover has been found with three different types of front openings: Rear top right corner has the text (IE 064 o 05249) between SHVL 804 and "stereo" centered (later copies have it left aligned).
