Originally released on March 1st, 1973, Dark Side of the Moon is among the most critically acclaimed records in history and is often featured in professional listings of the greatest albums of all time. The record helped to propel Pink Floyd to international fame, bringing wealth and plaudits to all four band members. A blockbuster release of the album era, this record also propelled record sales throughout the music industry during the 1970s. DSOTM has been certified 14× platinum in the United Kingdom and topped the US Billboard Top LPs & Tape chart, where it has charted for 964 weeks in total. With estimated sales of over 45 million copies, it is Pink Floyd’s most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. In 2012, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress for being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
