Notes

© 1983 MFD. by Toshiba EMi Ltd. in Japan /Digital Mastering
/Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London between June 1972 and January 1973. Produced by Pink Floyd

The first Japanese pressings of Dark Side of the Moon on CD were released in Japan by Toshiba-EMI Records with a catalog number of CP35-3017. Seeing as Toshiba-EMI Records did not have a pressing plant in operation yet (it would be a couple of years before they would open their first CD manufacturing plant), these compact discs were pressed for them by CBS/Sony Records Inc. of Japan. Nonetheless, the labels of the CDs have “Mfd. By Toshiba-EMI Ltd. In Japan” on them as they were Toshiba-EMI Records releases. The very first pressings of the CD were released in Japan in June of 1983.
For more information regarding early japanese editions of this album, please refer to this link : http://pinkfloydarchives.com/Discog/Japan/DSCD1/JADS1.htm

This CD was released with a 24-page booklet that featured the album title, album credits, song titles in both Japanese and English, song timings, musician credits, pictures of the band and pyramids, a history of Pink Floyd written by Michael Dale, and lyrics in both English and Japanese. The front page was the album cover.
The obi that came with early releases of Dark Side of the Moon was silver/gray in color, with square corners... Some of the very first releases of this CD were issued without an obi. Instead, they had a round gold price sticker with Japanese text on it adhered to the outside of the shrink wrap.

Note on Credits:
Though not specified in the liner notes, Barry St. John, Doris Troy, Lesley Duncan, and Liza Strike perform backing vocals only on tracks A4, B2, B4, and B5.

Has anyone heard this? I'm sooooo curious to hear what people call the best master of this exquisite album! Sadly I can't afford to hear it :(
