I bought this hybrid SACD from Chesky. As it's jazz, it may not be your cup of tea. Thought I'd mention it, though, as it's a surround release. I still need to check out Mary Fahl's album.Covers: any comments below are not on the quality of the recording unless stated, but rather on the listenability- I warn you that you have to LOVE DSOM to get through many of these.
DSOM purists- please feel free to RUN LIKE HELL from this post!
Many are just ok recordings, but musically it's intriguing to me the variation in musical styles and different feelings that can be conveyed from the same material. Most think of DSOM as a masterpiece work, but to the artists below, it's really just fresh clay...
Dub Side of the Moon- Easy Star All Stars (Reggae- great background jam)
Dubber Side of the Moon- Easy Star All Stars (more of the above- more production than the first outing. Toned down or tuned up, take your pick)
Return to the Dark Side of the Moon- Various Artists
Dark Side of the Moonshine- Poor Man's Whiskey (bluegrass fun)
The Moon Revisited- Various Artist (rock)
The Dark Side of the Mule- Govt Mule
Doom Side of the Moon- Doom Side of the Moon (which just gives me a "Spinal Tap" vibe, in the best way)
VSQ Master Series: Tribute to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon- Vitamin String Quartet (it's instrumental, it's VST, all good- take your vitamins!)
Dark Side of the Moon A Cappella- Dark Side of the Moon A Cappella (Voices on the Dark Side) (my least favorite- it's well done, but just makes me think "High School Musical" every time I hear it. The highlight is them all yelling "wake up" in front of Time - it's a cappella, so no alarm clocks...)
From the Dark Side of the Moon- Mary Fahl (another not a favorite interpretation, but an absolutely amazing recording)
The Not-So-Bright-Side of the Moon- The Squirrels (Vegas lounge rock, with punk asthetics and a Zappa sort of vibe)
and then there is this:
The Dark Side of the Moon-
The Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs with Henry Rollins and Peaches Doing The Dark Side of the Moon (it's exactly what it says it is).
Please let me know any decent ones that I'm missing!
How did I miss that one? And it is still available new for under $20 on Amazon. Ordered, arrives tomorrow! + + ⃤= Thanks for the heads up!
It turns out I was gifted a Behringer 404 HD and it works well. With Reaper it has handled many tapes and 8-tracks. Now to figure out how to play them in an automobile.This posting thread indicates to me that I am among friends.
I did not keep track of the q8, reel to reel and LP purchases, but there were many.
As my equipment, newly purchased in the 70's, will eventually fail, what would be the best method to transfer and play these on modern equipment?
