I bought ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ in 1976. On 8-track. I’ve since owned it on cassette, vinyl, CD and digital download. I also bought the remastered box set. There’s only a handful of albums that would warrant that kind of consumerism. ‘Dark Side’ was one of the albums that I need with me during every phase of my life.
Pink Floyd takes us all on a journey. We live our lives alongside their masterpieces. They provide a soundtrack for our lives. Every time I hear ‘Time’ I can picture wood paneling, a stack of albums and a group of us,16 years old – full of dreams and hope.
We perform the album like an orchestra would perform Mozart. With reverence. And awe. Since the onset of Classic Albums Live in 2003, we have been continually striving for perfection within the performance of the album. We never take this record for granted. We never rest on our laurels. The album demands a deft touch. We use our ‘note for note’ phrase as a credo, but we also get fanatical about ‘tone for tone’ and ‘feel for feel.’ This music demands greatness. The performance needs to be perfect. There is no grey area. You’re either on the dark side of the moon or the bright side. Our orbit is sound.
‘Dark Side of the Moon’ is our flagship show. It’s the show that changed our lives for the better. We hope that at some time during the performance – you close your eyes and dream of both the future and the past. And that you realize that you have grown up with one of the greatest pieces of music ever made.
“And all that is now, and all that is gone.”
