A new DVD, Dark Side of the Moon Classic Album, will look into the making of Pink Floyd’s 1973 album. The film will break Dark Side down track by track, offering commentary about its nine songs from Floyd principals singer/bassist Roger Waters, guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason, keyboardist Richard Wright and engineer Alan Parsons.
In addition to commentary about Dark Side, which celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in March, the DVD (due August 26th) will feature bonus footage, including Waters performing a stripped-down “Brain Damage” and Gilmour’s acoustic “Breathe.”
The album was Floyd’s first to chart in the U.S., reaching Number One in 1973 and residing in the Top Forty for over a year (it remained on Billboard charts for more than 700 consecutive weeks). Over the past thirty years, Dark Side of the Moon has sold nearly 30 million copies.
