This week marked 43 years since seminal psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd unleashed their landmark album The Dark Side Of The Moon, which would soon become nearly unmatched in critical and commercial success. The 10-song album, anchored by singles “Money” and “Time,” has become as legendary as the band that recorded it, made up at the time of David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright. Along with Hipgnosis/Storm Thorgerson’s iconic album cover, the impact of DSOTM has been absorbed across generations of fans.
The music on Dark Side is often utilized as source material for many artists who have covered the tracks both live and in the studio. Notably Phish, Gov’t Mule and moe. are among the groups that have covered the album in its entirety. The former two acts are represented in the Spotify Playlist presented below featuring a complete re-creation of the LP performed by an array of talented musicians.
