"The Dark Side Of The Moon" by Pink Floyd (1973)
Pink Floyd "The Dark Side Of The Moon"  1973 (UK)
This week we induct the 500th classic album of the week! Since the theme of this show begins with "psychedelic and progressive," there were basically two obvious candidates among the legendary cornerstone albums that have not been inducted yet (as I tend to avoid the most obvious albums). One was that 1967 flower power album by that group from Liverpool, but ultimately I had to go with the ultimate hifi headphone trip that is the highwater mark by one of the greatest sound-sculpting collectives of the prog era. And also one of the best sellers of all time, having been on the American Top 200 album chart for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988 - it was still on the chart when I bought it as a teen.
