DSOTM Improvisations

First, thanks for this amazing oportunity. You are part of the music history, in 200 years people will talk about DSOTM and how amazing it was (is) and you played a major role in it. Thanks!

My question:

What big problems have you faced during the recordings of Dark Side of The Moon and how much of improvisation and quick solutions you had to figure to fix them? And what improvisations turned to be great?

Thanks again, have a great day.

One of the biggest challenges was figuring out how to get the long delay for Us And Them. No digital delays back then. It took a 3M 8-track machine running on varispeed below 7.5 ips and two tracks for each repeat so that each repeat could move across the stereo.. We had to align the machine running at the slow speed and Dolby encode and decode for each repeat as well.
