Wednesday, Mar 1, 2023 – Dark Side of the Moon’s 50th

Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon Reimagined on 50th Anniversary.

We head for the Dark Side of the Moon when Echoes celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Pink Floyd classic. When the album came out on March 1, 1973, it became an iconic symbol of progressive rock and continued to influence everybody from electronic space musicians to singer-songwriters.  The album resided on the Billboard charts for 15 years non-stop.   I would argue it is one of the most impactful and influential albums of the last 50 years. Today we’re going to hear all of The Dark side of the Moon from beginning to end, but it won’t all be Pink Floyd.  The antiquated Digital Millennium Copyright Act forbids us from playing the whole thing in one show, so we’ve put together a reimagined version interpolating cover versions to recreate the non-stop flow of the album with side one in the first half hour and side 2 in the second. The lunatics are on the grass for the 50th Anniversary of Dark Side of the Moon, on Echoes from PRX.
