Chart Watch & New Release News Episode 21 – Dark Side of The Moon 50th Anniversary

Chart watch and New Release News : Episode 21

The Weekly Show for Music Fans who love to buy physical music.

In this episode I look the 50th Anniversary Box Set just announced for Dark Side of The Moon by Pink Floyd. I have to say at first glance this is a very underwhelming release. All the the comments I have seen so far have been very negative from the very people the record label probably think are their target audience.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

All discussed is the new 50th Anniversary Edition of Argus by Wishbone Ash.
