Mojo Magazine February 2023, Pink Floyd The Dark Side Of The Moon 50th Anniversary SpecialThe new issue of the UK's Mojo Magazine (cover date February 2023, issue number 351) features an absorbing, 13-page "50th Anniversary Special" focused on Pink Floyd's 1973 masterpiece, The Dark Side Of The Moon.

The magazine invites you to 'join writers and musicians on a voyage inside its songs and stories: "It's stood the test of time because of the spirit and emotion which went into it". They hint at 'New revelations! Myths explained! Kraftwerk implications!'

Articles within include PP Arnold talking about Clare Torry's vocal performance on Great Gig In The Sky, Alan Parsons looking at his work on the album, former Kraftwerk member Kart Bartos giving a particularly interesting analysis of On The Run (with reference to their own Autobahn), and much more. There's also an exclusive extract, looking at the story of the iconic sleeve design and the band during that era, from Mark Blake's superb new book, Us And Them: The Authorised Story of Hipgnosis which is published at the start of February. It should give you a taste of Blake's book which we're reading an early version of - it really will be an essential for your bookshelves!

If you're in the UK, a subscriber or ordering direct from them, there's a suitably designed and wide-ranging Pink Floyd companion CD, featuring artists as diverse as Ron Geesin, Miles Davis, Love, The Butterfield Blues Band, Chuck Berry, Doris Troy (one of the vocalists on the album) and much more.

Elsewhere in the magazine are features on Iggy Pop, Blur, some unseen pictures of Rolling Stones, a look at the 50 best buried treasures of 1972, and 2023 comprehensively previewed, amongst many other things.

Always a great read, the magazine is due to arrive in UK stores around now, and will be available in selected locations worldwide as an import, in due course. Alternatively, you can order (worldwide) online through the Great Magazines website which is owned and run by the publishers of Mojo (and will secure you the cover-mounted CD as well!).
