Further to the news we exclusively revealed to the world back in mid-September of the 30th Anniversary celebrations for Dark Side Of The Moon (03-03-03), engineer Alan Parsons has confirmed our information that the quad mix is being released on DVD-A. Our thanks to Kees Nijpels for spotting the following news on the Audio Revolution website:

Reliable sources close to report that in a conference at the Surround 2002 Expo in Beverly Hills today [December 13th 2002], engineer Alan Parsons spoke on the topic of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon being mixed for DVD-Audio.

Parsons confirmed that the version of Dark Side on DVD-Audio that has been heard around Los Angeles was a working version of the quad mix on a DVD-Audio disc. He confirmed that the band was in fact working on a dedicated 5.1 version which he was sure was going to be a DVD-Audio title. EMI, Floyd's label, backs DVD-Audio in the U.S. Strangely, Parsons who engineered the legendary Dark Side album 30 years ago, is not part of the new mixing sessions based on a decision made by the band – says Parsons. After thirty years of hearing his work, Parson says he has lots of ideas of things he wanted to do differently if he were to get a chance. He isn't.

Release dates, an official announcement and other details were not released but a 30th anniversary release seems to make sense at this point. If you could order the DVD-Audio title early, which you can't at this point, it might become the biggest selling title in the new audio format's history on its first shipment.
