One of the most iconic and influential albums ever, Pink Floyd's ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon' continues to find new audiences globally. The album was partly developed during live performances, and the band premiered an early version of the suite at London's Rainbow Theatre several months before recording began. ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon' is the eighth studio album by Pink Floyd, originally released in the US on 1 March and then in the UK on 16th March 1973. The new material was recorded in 1972 and 1973 at EMI Studios (now Abbey Road studios) in London. The iconic sleeve, which depicts a prism spectrum, was designed by Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis and drawn by George Hardie. ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon' has sold over 50 million copies worldwide.
On the 24th of March, the CD and first ever vinyl issue of Pink Floyd's ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon - Live At Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974' will be released independently. It was originally recorded in November 1974 as part of the band's winter tour and this is the first time it will be available as a stand-alone album, with artwork featuring an original 1973 line-drawn cover by George Hardie.
