To commemorate the 30th anniversary of this classi c, Capitol Records will be re-issuing Pink Floyd's the Dark Side of the Moon on the Super Audio CD (SACD) format. This is much more than an ordinary CD it's actually a Super Audio CD (SACD) that feat ures two disc layers.
Dark Side of the Moon, originally released in 1973, is one of those albums that is discovered anew by each generation of rock listeners. This complex, often psychedelic music works very well because Pink Floyd doesn't rush anything; the songs are mainly slow to mid-tempo, with attention paid throughout to musical texture and mood. The sound effects on songs like "On the Run," "Time" and especially "Money" (with sampled sounds of clinking coins and cash registers turned into rhythmic accompaniment) are impressive, especially when we remember that 1973 was before the advent of digital recording techniques. This is probably Pink Floyd's best-known work, and it's an excellent place to start if you're new to the band. --Genevieve Williams

When will record manufacturers realize that there are still serious collectors out there that want a quiet album? We're not all into vinyl for the "hip" factor. For example, went to a record show yesterday and picked up a used copy of Clapton's Journeyman. Mind you it was near mint, but that baby, though 20+ years old sounds superb with nary a background pop, hiss, or crackle. If they could do it back then for $10, it can be done now for $40!
