Dark Side Of The Moon: 35 Years Later

35 years ago, what may be the greatest album ever recorded was released her in the U.S. It spent a staggering 741 weeks(14 years) in the Billboard Top 200. 26 years on one Billboard chart or another. No other album is even close to that. It is the 6th best selling album of all time with 40+ million sold worldwide. I don't know how many in the in U.S. In 1998 it was at 15+ million. It still, to this day, sells around 9,000 copies a week. In 2003, Rolling Stone declared it the 43rd greatest album of all time. In 2006, viewers and listeners of the Australian Broadcasting Company voted it "My Favourite Album". And, if you start the album at just the right moment with The Wizard Of Oz, they seem to link up.

If you're one of the few people on the planet that's never heard the album, go and pick it up today.
