Notes

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London between June 1972 and January 1973.

This is the original form of the release, it has solid light blue prism LP picture labels with silver lettering, later forms have an empty prism. It has a gatefold sleeve, and there are three known variations of the original blue-tinged sleeve - see below. Originally came with 2 posters and 2 stickers.

There are 2 systems for track numbering on the release. The cover lists the titles A1 to B5 (used in this submission). The labels however number the tracks from (a) to (i) so, for example, "Breathe" is listed as "(a)(II)" on the label but "2" on the cover (see images).

The following is a guide to identifying all of the elements that make up the first pressing:

1. The label has a solid light blue prism. Subsequent pressings have a blue glowing inner edge prism with the centre black.
2. 'The Gramophone Co.' text starts at 10 o'clock on label.
3. A2/B2 matrix in deadwax of run out groove.
4. Thick heavyweight vinyl believed by some to be the 'finest' and most true encapsulation of this historical recording as the first pressing was pressed direct from the original masterplate. "These 1st pressings were straight from the masters and nothing even gets close to them today. They play with a deep clear warm clarity and have to be heard to be believed!".
5. There is a distinct bluish tint/tinge in the black ink of the cover.
6. There are three known original sleeve 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. A known 2/2 matrix, 1 mother, G stamper copy came with , an unglued and non-'folded in' sleeve at time of release, which hints at the possibility that very first pressings did not come with glued flaps, which is where the poster and stickers were located.
7. Inner sleeve is a distinctive polythene lined die cut black semi matt paper with white printed text stating 2 patent numbers bottom left [112555/1072844] and 'MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN' bottom right.
8. Posters and stickers were printed on paper stock that has a rough texture (later pressings used paper that was gloss laminated).
9. Stickers have printed backs with diagonal lines across them, and the words 'Fasson' 'FasPrint' and 'Crack-Back'.
10. Very first copies came with a small round sticker white text on black stating 'Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon'.Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London between June 1972 and January 1973.

180 gram heavyweight vinyl. With original packaging.

In gatefold sleeve. Includes Two rectangular Pink Floyd stickers and two posters, one of the band and another of the pyramids.

/Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London between June 1972 and January 1973. Produced by Pink Floyd

This CD was released (2nd CD press) with a 24-page booklet that featured the album title, album credits, song titles in both Japanese and English, song timings, musician credits, pictures of the band and pyramids, a history of Pink Floyd written by Michael Dale, and lyrics in both English and Japanese. The front page was the album cover.
The obi that came with early releases of Dark Side of the Moon was silver/gray in color, with square corners.

In early 1984, the back cover inlay changed. The right angle fold where the spines connect with the back cover now had perforations along the fold lines.

Note on Credits:
Though credited for the entire album, Barry St John, Doris Troy, Lesley Duncan, and Liza Strike perform backing vocals only on tracks A4, B2, B4, and B5.Dark Side Of The Moon
From the original 1/2" Master Tapes

This is the real deal. not the usual Q8 or SQ versions with all their limitations (limited bandwidth on the Q8, Matrixed surround on the SQ etc) but a genuine transfer from the original master tapes. Finally you can hear Alan Parsons mix as it was always intended to be heard in studio quality audio. The only "liberty" we have taken here is an additional .1 track. You can make up your own mind as to whether or not it is a worthwhile addition. It also features all new artwork in both sections specially created for this DVD-Audio release.

The disc will play on all DVD players, as it is a DVD-Audio/Video "hybrid" containing the following:

Audio_TS: MLP Lossless at 24/96 Resolution in 4.1
Video_TS: DTS from 24/48 Source files, Dolby Digital from 16/48 Source files

Additionally, it is possible to play both the lossy streams from DVD-Audio players.
Each type has it's own menus. What you can access is dependant entirely on your player.

All Authoring, Encoding, Post Production and design is exclusive to this release.

FEEL FREE TO DISTRIBUTE THIS DISC TO OTHERS, BUT ALWAYS "AS IS" AND IN FULL. PLEASE DO NOT RIP AND REPOST IN ANY OTHER FORMAT. THERE IS NO NEED AS ALL DVD PLAYERS CAN READ THIS DISC, AND DOING SO WILL DEPRIVE OTHERS OF THE FULL HIGH RESOLUTION FORMATS USED. ADDITIONALLY, RIPPING TO DTS-CD WILL INVOLVE QUALITY LOSS DUE TO DOWNSAMPLING, AND WILL REDUCE THE LISTENING PLEASURE FOR OTHERS.

where can i get one of this edition ? Anyone ??

Heads up to any owners of this one.

Center holes are not all pressed very well.
Some may have small protuberances that'll poke through the clear poly sleeve into the main cover.

These resilient bits cause dent marks on the covers and will damage any other discs it may swipes across. Sort of like the Stones' Sticky FIngers Zipper cover but in the other direction.
I suggest owners check their copies to avoid extending the damages.

Also...
Some copies may have a 'fold-back' in the printed artwork, causing an audible "thup-thup" noise.
Others may have delamination bubbles around the spindle hole.

Finally acquired a copy of this one, will give it a spin soon to see if it is really a quad pressing or not.

I return a lot of new vinyl looking for nice flat quiet pressings
This was done right. The tone was spot on.
Dead flat pressing and nearly Perfect Pressing

I have the first US pressing of this but it’s just been through too much and I needed a new, flat, quiet copy that was on par with my original. With all of the crap getting pressed today I cringe every time I spend my money and drop the needle. More times than not, I return it and just give up. Not this time. I dropped the needle on “Money” first and the hair stood up on the back of my neck and I was just grinning. Thank you Roger and David. Thank you for demanding quaility and then delivering. This copy sounds so close to my First US pressing it is sick. It is dead quiet with just slightly more “Ballsy or punchy” than the original. And I mean slightly. The dynamics are on. On. I could not be a happier Floyd fan. When I listen to PF, I want no pops and no surface noise, otherwise it’s Cds for me. The cover differs from the original only because of the “soft touch” coating whereas the original had a slightly semigloss finish. The Soft touch is silky, and a nice touch. Also included are the two stickers and the two posters, which I believe are the ones included in the original UK pressings. My posters in my US pressing are slightly different. Get this issue, hopefully it will as good as mine. My system is not the greatest but I like it. I have a 1985, 100 watt Realistic receiver, a Realistic turntable with a Audio Technical 440mla cartridge and custom built speakers.

Wasn't a big fan of buying remasters, have a second run '73 copy that sounds great. Just having a brand new copy of this LP was what made me get it, when I played the LP I was blown away. I have mine playing through a yamaha receiver with a surround sound enhancer on and it sounds glorious. You can tell that the album really was meant for surround sound, even if its just taking stereo and making it into virtual surround sound. The quadrophonics they used back then paid off, 46 years later we still benefit from it. Got it new for $20, what a steal!

Sounds amazing! Clean flat pressing. Dynamic with a nice sound stage. It has a full, warm and rich sound. This one was done right!

As my journey continues in search of the best Dark Side of the Moon I finally stumble upon an early UK copy in good condition and decide to buy it. To be specific a third generation A3/B3 from 1973.Mostly I went back and forth with my 2016 reissue on the tracks Money and Time because I felt like I needed to narrow it down to shorter switching times and still need tracks that have lots of different qualities to them, when it comes to Dark Side, most releases are well mastered in general so comparing becomes a tightrope where the devil lies in the details.I described the 2016 Grundman cut as a very balanced and only slightly harsh but well sounding alternative. Which is what we come to realize again here. The UK does seem slightly less edgy in comparison and from experience with comparing other Pink Floyd originals vs reissue this is a common trend, the EQ is a smidge lower, removing some of that harshness. Cymbals and high hats sound more smooth and earthy while the reissues is more metallic for example.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.Reverb too seems just as good if not better here on the A3/B3 giving subtitles in echoes more effect.The plus for the 2016 cut then is present in certain areas where its EQ has better effect, such as the clocks on Time. This can be extended to more areas as a general rule where the original is not as in the room and realistic.But right after we are then treated to the synth and drum intro before the vocals and the UK certainly has more bite here. That coupled with the extra bass from the low end really gives it and edge over the reissue.And thats where I stop at least for now as I decided the UK to be the winner.One of the main drawbacks for the reissue really was that slight harshness I felt and while the higher end EQ choices have been favoring for other PF reissue such as on WYWH where I actually favor the Grundman cut over the UK original for sounding more real and less bloaty, here it mostly has the opposite effect.There still is, for example, some sibilance on the UK. Although because my copy is used and my stylus is Elliptical I dont dare say how much it really is. But I do assume that the only way to solve that entirely is in way of the extra smooth and pleasant MFSL release. And dropping the needle on its Money track as a finisher really affirms my belief that it is the best version for that song alone at least.In the end the UK original takes the spot over the 2016 reissue for now. Ill try to give the other releases a head to head again sometime but right now I dont want to spoil the album too much.Find it in NM condition and you will surely be a happy listener.Current Ranking: 1.

docko79 Hi new user here, quick question is there any chance you can help me. I have a pink floyd dark side of the moon album 1973, on the viynl itself it says shvl 804 a3/b3. Can i ask is this a rare album or a original release, thanks in advance It could be called an "original" yes. But it is not a first press. A first press has a solid blue triangle on the label and those had A2/B2 runouts mostly. The value of your record depends a lot on its condition, and the condition depends on how picky and thorough you are with grading. These non blue triangles are mostly common and most dont care too much about runouts, so if its VG or VG+ without all the posters and stickers then 20£ is probably the best you could do online or if you were a store. If it however is truly NM or sealed, which yours is not, then it might jump to 100£ for those who want that perfect experience, which is very rare for Dark Side originals. Its a good record, most didnt say "let me just never play this again".Dark side is a common record though, for other albums it might not be such a big difference in price for NM as people gladly settle for VG+ on mega rarities, it always depends.Does this help?

Is it the smaller the number the better or the opposite?
Dalarin Dalarin
Ive read up on this a lot more these days and you seem to be wrong. The first press of any particular album tends to be best, unless its completely reissued and reworked on another label with other quality standards and goals.What Zepoelin album are you talking about? Ive never heard anyone talk bad about the first pressings of any Zep album, they are hailed as the best most of the time.
Arlelond Arlelond
More often, a later pressing will have a better sound quality than the original, that’s not however the same for every album.First pressings of the first few Led Zeppelin albums certainly, according to sound experts, have an inferior sound quality... but then it depends on how good your hearing is, most of us won’t notice any difference I guess.

Can anyone help me figure out which version of DSOTM I have as I'm utterly confused!Matrix:SHVL 804 A - 11SHVL 804 B - 110 - 1 - 1 - (The B reads as a 3? and the 110 as 11C but i'm presuming these are defects)No barcode on sleeve. Under the SHVL 804 I have the IE 064-05249. Inside gatefold bottom left, I have the L 7303.Both sides of gatefold are open. I have both posters and stickers. The labels are the empty glowing kind.Thanks.
