Pink Floyd’s Dark Side has sold more 35 million copies worldwide since it was released in 1973 and has spent more than 1,550 weeks as one of Billboard’s Top 200 best-selling albums – that’s about 30 years.
Now it’s becoming a best-seller all over again, on iTunes.
The album is climbing the charts again, thanks to the unprotected 256kbps AAC version available through Apple’s iTunes Plus. Since Apple’s DRM-free music experiment with EMI was launched in May, sales of Dark Side have gone up more than 270 percent.
Just goes to prove, there’s always a silver lining to the Dark Side.
