Mine's SMAS-1-11163-F33#3 –––◁ MASTERED BY CAPITOL, and the wly, but both of the matrix run outs say the same thing. I am not finding my copy anywhere.


August 11, 2017

Mine is an original, but the inside of the fold and back cover is upside down, does this make it more valuable?

This album was part of the period that Pink Floyd entered as a group that marked a change in direction when the musical style is considered and the form of the songwriting that defined the concept of the album's creative influence following the passing of the original and early member of the group Syd Barret. During this point in the bands creative design to their music marked the period when David Gilmour took over as guitarist and principal songwriter.

When I came home from Vietnam I felt funky( I was in a funk, they did not have Post stress and all that in 1973) I reported for duty at McGuire AFB, NJ on March 17, 1973, which I believe is the release date for Darkside of the Moon. Two days later I discovered FM Radio and Pink Floyd. Saturday June 16, 1973, Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City, NJ. I watched Pink Floyd perform Darkside of the Moon. I was officially De-Funked and life has not been the same since. That album and headphones have got me throught many a crisis, as well as my 30yr son and 28yr daughter. If anyone has any info I would be grateful. Side 1 etched SMAS 1 11163 F15 #1 with a 2 etched over the 1 to make it F25 #1 and mastered by Capitol pressed at about vthe 5:30 position Side 2 SMAS 2 11163 F15 # 5 Cover front Pyramid and prism Back cover Pyramid and Prism twice as large and upside down has Harvest emblem and 1973 The Gramophone Company Limited, inside cover has all selections published and copyright by TRO Hampshire House publishing Corp and Pats Pending INTERPAK PS This album was made to listen to it in its entirety in one setting, originally the only break was after Great Gig in the Sky, because you had to flip the record. In the last 10 or 15 years I have bought 7 CDs and instead of finding one that would play straight, they have inserted breaks after every song and the money hungary music industry has managed to completely destroy one of the worlds finest musical
albums ever composed, produced, and recorded .

Mine shows 1163-F60 ²

I can't find an F60 anywhere

Have rare copy with gatefold inner panel upside down. And the "money" misprint.


September 27, 2015
I'm tired of searching :)
Mine has the gate fold lyrics misprint on, "Money."
Text around outer labels starts at 10 o'clock with the full, "MFD. BY CAPITOL..............UNAUTHORIZED DUPLICATION........," ending at 2 o'clock.

Side One run-out etching: SMAS-1-11163-H74#1 ⊗ ML
(ML = mastered by Maurice Long)
Side Two: SMAS-2-11163-G63 #2 gene ⊗
(mastering, Gene Thompson)
both sides' stamped "MASTERED BY CAPITOL"

I'm sure in the end I'll just go through and find at least one version that has Gene's G63 cut on side two, but I went through all the mid 70's US releases on here and I can't find one that matches this cut. Most have Wly (WallyTraugott) running the lathe.

I actually found it sticking out from someone's garbage- I couldn't let it go to the landfill! While the sleeve is in poor shape with stains and wear, the vinyl itself is at least a clean G+ with no warp, no scratches, and plays with minimal pop and crackle.

If someone could help me figure out which release i can claim here, I would greatly appreciate it!

I'm trying to identify which version of Dark Side of the Moon that I have, and the etchings on my record do not match any of the versions listed on Dicogs. Can anyone help?

A Side: 1-11163-F-28
B Side: 2-11163-F-9 3 wly

Thank you!


July 10, 2015
Can anyone confirm this is the 1st US release of the album?
