New Pink Floyd release

Pink Floyd is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the release of Dark Side of the Moon.

The forthcoming The Dark Side Of The Moon box set will be available through Warners on March 24. It includes a CD and gatefold vinyl of the newly remastered studio album and Blu-Ray and DVD audio featuring the original 5.1 mix and remastered stereo versions.  The set also includes an additional new Blu-ray disc of a Dolby Atmos mix plus CD and LP of The Dark Side Of The Moon - Live At Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974.

I hope the "remastered" versions are worthy improvements, but that isn't always the case these days.

The artwork is creating a stir among a small segment of "fans" who don't know what prisms and rainbows are... attacking or dis-owning the band for their "wokism". Can't make this stuff up, sadly. 

50th anniversary release of Dark Side Of The Moon


It's intriguing but I'd rather try and track down a copy of the 5.1 recording (30th edition) than buy the box set. Then I could do a comparison of that 5.1 to the original stereo version I have on CD. I think this is for hard core completists and collectors. 

I will say this, I did get the Animals Remix and I've really enjoyed the remastered version. It's a clean, second pressing that didn't have the 1st pressing vinyl issues I had read about.

Now...I AM interested in that colored vinyl box set of Stones Mono lps. But a few reviews said they're not as revealing as the black vinyl mono box set that came out a while back. 

$300.00 for the boxed set,are you kidding?I'm holding out for the $700.00 ,75th anniversary super deluxe ultimate re-cycle!
