Made and Printed in the E.U.Grey shell cassette from Taiwan. Sticker labels and one-sided J-card.
Track A1 says "Breath" instead of "Breathe" and A2 says "One" instead of "On".
"Money" is split into A5 and B1.Includes 2 posters and 2 stickersRecorded 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'.Unofficial version of an Australian Limited Edition released in 1987.

Comes with a large poster (Pyramids).Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London between June 1972 and January 1973.

I have a copy for sale, the one pictured in the first three images here. PM for details.

This is a sonic and musical masterpiece. What the best sides of The Dark Side of The Moon have to offer is not hard to hear : the biggest, immediate staging in the largest acoustic space, the most Tubey Magic, without which you have almost nothing. Digital give you clean and clear, but only the best vintage vinyl pressings offer the kind of Tubey Magic that was on the Tapes in 1973. Correct amount of weight down low; natural tonality in the midrange - with all the instruments having the correct timbre; transparency, and resolution, critical to hearing into the three-dimensional space of the studio. The best copies are not brighter or hyped-up in any way, they are just bigger and clearer. You have to play as LOUD as possible, and then you will hear the difference ! Early british pressings are the best, forget modern , digitally sourced reissues !! ( just my opinion)

Wilalmaine
A very good copy, absolutely cleen, with great dynamics, but about this point, I remember the original pressing my dad had me listen to, I remember that there was more dynamic on "Money" for exemple, I think Pink Floyd always payed a lot of care about that it's part of the magic, close to classic/orchestral albums, very low volume and then boom, a music explosion...that brings all the emotion.But all tracks have a really good dynamic, I really enjoy that, and some other tracks have maybe a bit more dynamic than the original pressing...they did some good work.it's all about what I remember, the last time I listened to the original pressing was like 4 or 5 years ago..But as about all the remastering, the bass are more prononced, but still there are not to high, and for that there are some passages of the album I enjoy more because of that, but for one or the other I think it was not necessary...But about all remastering have a boost in the low frequency, and depending on your sound system (speakers..) you may notice less small details in the high frequency range...I listened it with crap speakers and it was worse than the original, but with a decent audio system I like it more (I'm speaking for this remastering, not all the others, it's not true for all of them).Sometimes I ask myself "but why did they work on something that is great ? What do they want more?"In my opinion there are plenty of albums wich should not have been remastered...they where good as they where...Maybe they enjoy to try new thinks.But overall, don't forget it was a top selling for years, a master piece...and still now it's selling good, it's a "must have" album.All good !

Vrion
Fantastic remastering and nice clean pressing. Great artwork. Well worth the $.

Early Waffle
To be honest, I have several different releases of TDOTM. But this one here sound very clean, but somehow lifeless and for my taste too much bass. The bass shouldn't be as dominant as it is on this release, because it covers all the details. I compared it to my original pressing (UK 1973) and the CD from 1994. In my opinion is the original LP from 1973 and the CD a better choice due to the details of the music. Less bass seems to be old fashioned in these days.

avanger
I own multiple versions of this album. I have a Canadian first press, a Mofi 'italicized' version, a 100th anniversary EMI copy, a 20th anniversary edition, and a few others as well. To my ears, all of them kill this newer remaster. I found my copy to be dead, lifeless, and lacking in soundstage. Separation and definition were also weak. I should state, however, that my equipment is extremely discriminating. If you have a run of the mill system, you probably won't hear much of a difference. If that is the case, this is definitely an inexpensive way to introduce yourself to Pink Floyd on vinyl but, this remaster is by no means comparable to most of the earlier analogue presses. If you have a great system, don't waste your money. There are plenty of earlier analogue copies available which will smoke this edition. Yes, you might spend a little more but, I believe it's worth it if you own quality stereo components. This remaster is a thumbs down for me. I gave my copy away.

Hilarious Kangaroo
I agree to the points you made. As I mentoned. there's too much bass and less detailed compared to all the other releases.

Lo◘Ve
While it's not an AAA pressing, this might be the best modern iteration of this iconic album. Outstanding packaging and a high quality, black as night (silent) pressing. Oh, and did I mention that it sounds amazing? Seriously, the remaster is amazing. Created with love for mere mortals with modest budgets.

Ndav
super quiet, no surface noise or pops. great sounding copy.

Thiama
A masterwork.. I don't know what they done here but the result is glorious.. The vinyl it sound from early 80s era.. One of the greatest remasters i have heard.. Very rare to have such quality in these days.. So run and get one copy soon..

Akirg
yes, this record sound great. Never heard any other pressings but this one is super clean.

Marad
It's a good reprint, a wonderfull alternative for expensive originals. It sounds quite simmilar to the original, at least to my unproffessional ear.

Halloween
The surface of the cover is printed with mat soft touch

Anyshoun
As someone who has compared this to Japanese PRO USE, MFSL reissue and UK early pressings I can easily say that its a fine alternative for anyone who wants easy and cheap access to a quiet and well sounding copy.In short, its one of the most balanced cuts of the album, making most aspects heard and appreciated even on lower quality gear. And still, the bass and highs are here in an almost perfectly EQd soundstage.The main drawback is a slight harshness to the sound compared to most other cuts and the dynamics are not as strong on some others.Equipment Used:Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-200 CartridgeCyrus 2 AmplifierSystem Fidelity SF-3050 Tower SpeakersCustom made HQ Speaker Cables

Daizil
What a great great record this is. The sound is astounding, no crackling whatsoever. The record itself is a legend but the quality of this 2016 pressing is unheard of. Five stars all the way.

Paster
This version is great. I compared it to my original 1973 US release and it sounds about the same (a tad more bass on the original.) Definitely a good bargain for the money.

ChallengeMine
Awesome sound, the best among the LP's I own. I don't have many though.. :P

MEGA FREEDY
Sorry for popping the party of euphoria here but If you are on vinyl for the analog magic and etc (and not some kind of hipster douche that thinks just because its on vinyl it sounds better than CD) then please don't waste your time/money here. Compare this with a clean UK/JPN original or with a 2003 anniversary version and you will feel like removing a heavy carpet from your speakers (like literally). This vinyl is digitally sourced -like most of the new masters nowadays thus should be avoided or alternatively bought on a CD (to spare yourself from the fragility of vinyl)

Blackstalker
System match has nothing to do with it. EQ is something thats identifiable on any gear as it works on level. 1 pressing is comparatively darker and more muffled and the other is brighter and crisper.I can go to any of my friends systems and get the same results.

Zyangup
then your system is wrongly matched or low-end or you are just a drunk Scandinavian :p

Shaktit
leokats Sorry for popping the party of euphoria here but If you are on vinyl for the analog magic and etc (and not some kind of hipster douche that thinks just because its on vinyl it sounds better than CD) then please don't waste your time/money here.

This vinyl is digitally sourced -like most of the new masters nowadays thus should be avoided or alternatively bought on a CD (to spare yourself from the fragility of vinyl) I completely disagree with your terminology as I have compared to my UK and Japanese copies. The UK is actually more veiled and muffled because of its low end lean. The 2016 reissue is less so.I think you should get off your analog high horse and realize that you can make quality from tapes copied to digital as well.

Gindian
I agreed your saying "feel like removing a heavy carpet from your speakers". this album itself was acceptionally well-recorded. for this reason, it will sound great on the most system untill one can compare with the better pressings. I was astonished how muddy this pressing is compared to 1989 korean pressing which no one would regard as an audiophile pressing. Sorry this ain't sound good.

Gietadia
Honestly I don't get what you are trying to point out here. First the CD is always cheaper than the equivalent vinyl version and comparatively a lot easier to maintain in good condition (no brushes no washing no.. the list goes on), so why on god damn earth buy a digitally sourced vinyl? Concerning the "reviews" I will say that people will always have mixed opinions since music is mainly a perception, HOWEVER anyone who has heard an original or correctly done AAA (fully analogue) reissue will definitely trash the 2016s given a correctly matched system (thats a fact not an opinion). I am just trying to raise awareness here and say the obvious; if a company wants to reissue an album by using the vinyl format it should be done with respect to the medium and to what it offers, rather than be appealing to newbies that think wow vinyl is amazing because its thick thus "uncompressed" and 180g (and all these kind of myths that flow around vinyl)

Manazar
Averaging about $20/£20 isn't really a waste of money and by all accounts this is a great pressing for the price, digitally sourced or not. Most people just want to enjoy listening to the album and this provides a great experience at a modest price. Most reviews place this close behind the originals, but at a fraction of the cost. Some would say the 30th has more issues despite it's analog source and that the 2016 issue suits mid to low end systems very well. Regarding the fragility of vinyl that's a moot point. If you look after a vinyl and a cd equally well they will both last a lifetime.

Yozshujinn
sounds fantastic. going from digital to this shows just how much difference vinyl can make

Phenade
Would recommend. Awesome sound and brilliant mastering. An must buy.

Delari
It's good...but good only. An old german issue plays better for me. Anyway it's nice, new, flat, plays clear and quiet, without clicks or pops. It's worth a "good price".

Delan
Clean your records with a good antistatic fluid!Pops will disappear

Walianirv
Oh you're definitely right. every record though new need a gentle cleaning to remove dust and factory residues.

Anararius
burraga What is the brand of antistatic fluid that you use? Nevermind I fixed the problem by adding a humidifier to my room. You need the right moisture levels, around 50%, 30% minimum to prevent static from appearing.

I did, it didnt help. Although I have problems with my Okki Nokki in general so.

Syleazahad
impressive soundstage and detail, and as quiet as the dark side of the moon itself. i am so impressed, again with these recent remasters. I notice, that some are having issue with clicks and pops, and upon opening this album i myself always inspect and thoroughly wet/vacuum clean all albums, I did notice this had more"particles" on the surface. cleaned a couple times, and it sounds great on both tables i have, a dual 1019 and a reba rp8.

Milleynti
Wanna give away one of your tables there? Id love to have an RP8 ;^)

Road.to sliver
Very good remastered version of this mythic album, it comes with two stickers and two posters. If you wanna rediscover this Pink Floyd emblematic album, you know what to do.

Maridor
One of the classics and an icon for vinyl records. We all know the great art that so many Pink Floyd albums include and this is far from an exception. Perhaps the most elegant designs there is. The black sleeve feels soft to hold and along comes the posters and stickers. Of course we can not forget about the record itself which as many here have stated sounds fantastic. One of my favorite albums. Perhaps the only negative being a slight static sound I hear on the quieter songs and some warping which could have been a side effect from shipping. Even so it is amazing how well they have mastered this release and it can bring out the most of your sound system even though its digitally sourced. Bernie Grundman and co really know how to master properly. These new Pink Floyd albums really are benchmarks for great sounding remasters. If you love this album and you buy this as your first DSotM record I can not foresee you being disappointed.What still amazes me however, is how consistent Pink Floyd is at making terrible posters haha!Current ranking: 1.

Sound is very nice, but LP itself came slightly warped...

FireWater
This pressing is amazing. Everything is in perfect balance and sound stage is very clear. Sound is full and just easy to listen. Best remaster I have heard so far.

Oso
have you tried Animals ? it is good too, sounds are clear..

Malara
Packaging is really nicely done but the pressing is not good - full of crackle, clicks - very poor. Played on Michel Gyrodec so should sound good. The 2011 issue was so much better. I would go for that one over this (https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon/release/3211255). Pretty unimpressed.

Gerceytone
every record, though new, needs cleaning to remove dust, static electricity as well as factory residues

Dugor
Did you wet clean before playing? I've noticed quite a few releases are covered in particles when I open them for the first time.

Agagamand
This mastering & pressing is phenomenal. If the sound is anything but fantastic then something is wrong with your stereo. Bravo to all involved with this release.

heart of sky
BTW: Havr just played the 2011 issue again and it really has some punch to it. The 2016 repress is very 'soft' in comparison. The 2011 version will be very hard to beat. Check out when The Great Gig In The Sky kicks in, it will knock you out!

Ť.ħ.ê_Ĉ.õ.о.Ł
Have now wet cleaned it, and it still sounds bad - lots of crackle noise everywhere and distortion. If I play the 2011 pressing, this is fine! I must have a bad copy - very disappointed and a VERY unpleasurable listening experience considering there are some many quiet parts on the album. Buyers beware that there are some poor pressings out there.

Ann
I agree in all points - i have much versions an this is one of the Best!!

Djang
A superb presentation of this iconic Pink Floyd album. 5 stars.

TheFresh
Dead quiet. Beautiful sound. Bernie Grundman. I own many versions of this album and this is second only to my Japanese first pressing.

Yndanol
My matrices/etchings match this release (Bernie Grundman) but my barcodes match the US release. Anyone else seeing something similar?

Saintrius
Yes. The gatefold sleeve, labels, and shrink wrap stickers have the US numbers and distributed by Sony but the matrices have the EU/UK numbers.

Modar
It was just about as i expected; high-quality pressing, beautiful gatefold-covers, the posters and postcards are a nice addition too. Sounds superb too!

Insanity
  Merman records. Word on the Steve Hoffman forum is that it is definitely NOT AAA. However, opinions are very favourable and say it compares well with originals and that is from people who are very much into AAA. Note that the UK/EU version is mastered by Bernie Grundman while the US version isn't, which has led to most American people on that forum going for the UK/EU version.

Llallayue
Actually, US Dark Sides have been coming back as Grundman; it's actually Wish You Were Here that's the repackaged 2011 Sax cut in the US.

Original
Is it all analog, or is it AAD? The cover says it' from the original master tapes, but not if it's all analog.

BeatHoWin
mermanrecords Is it all analog, or is it AAD? The cover says it' from the original master tapes, but not if it's all analog. It says on the sticker at the upper left after the side two tracklist: "remastered from the original analogue tapes by james guthrie et al.."

Doriel
The 30th anniversary edition is already digital as 20th. I have japan's first press in very-very good condition, true-NM, clean, grooves in very good condition, no distortion... and it's with all suff: posters, card, booklet.

Gianni_Giant
That I don't know but I suspect all of the new PFR releases are digital.

Marinara
Gilmour said it himself. I'll try to find the interview.

Adrielmeena
Where did yoi hear they were too damaged. Money talks and id imagine if the money was on the table from somewhere then they would be used. Look at the Doors Analogue Productions reissues. Only self titled used a tape copy for that campaign.

Shadowredeemer
This is not analog and it will never be analog release anymore.

Kecq
It seems they're all AAD, but that really shouldn't dissuade you - they've all been getting good reviews so far. I've only heard Meddle - and though I've not heard an original, it's hard to imagine doing better, particularly with 45 year-old tapes.

Alianyau
Thanks for the info rasoren, helped me find the right release there.Can you elaborate a little, is it only for TDSOTM or the entire discog that they pressed AAA?

Galubel
This is most likely a digital remaster. The original masters are too old and damaged. The 30th anniversary edition is the last all analog remaster and that was done in 2003.

Yllk
Friday evening PST 29th dec 2017:What does this grey-market ish sound like? Unlikely to have used the actual stampers from the antecedent, so perhaps mastered from a digital file of a needle drop of it? A copy just went on sale on a boutique online site - $100(!) Worth the gelt?

Definitley not worth it, I have a white vinyl version. It has lot's of pops and crackles and it doesn't even have the quadrophonic version on there. Just a regular stereo mix
