Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

Hi John!

This album has had an enormous influence on music and culture over the last 35 years, and it is in my personal top 10 of all time. As an engineer on this album, do you have any memories of what it was like making it? At what point did you realize you had something special? And how does everything sound so amazingly good?!

Thanks for any info!

Hi Steve
I gotta say I never really worked on DSOM ! I did maybe one or two sessions when Alan Parsons was away or at dentists or something but Alan engineered the whole thing and was invaluable and totally in control of the sound on that record. Its wonderful of course and will always be the hifi speaker test record! I was of course around the studios the whole time they were making it and everyone in the building knew they had something special. It was done 16 track dolby with TG mixer recorded and mixed in AR Studio2 on JBL monitors...and Koss headphones!
Cheers JL
