Did you know that the Dark Side Of the Moon album stayed in the US album chart for 736 weeks ( 14 years)?Did you know that the song Coming Back To Life was used to wake up the astronauts of the Columbia space shuttle? There is a footage of the crew talking to the control center on the NASA website. Did you know that when playing Money at the Live 8 gig, Roger Waters and Nick Mason did not quite meet rhythmically? The mistakes can be heard in the live broadcast footage and they have been retouched later.
The recordings released on the album were recorded for the purposes of John Peels Top Gear Show which ran on BBC Radio 1. All of the songs were recorded on the 24th of February 1970. Songs such as Dominoes or Love Song were recorded during the session, too, but the tapes got lost from the BBC archive.
