#20 – 12,000
Pink Floyd – Dark Side Of The Moon (1973) : 1 725 000
With both Wish You Were Here and The Wall sitting in the Top 40, there is no surprise at all to see the ultimate Pink Floyd classic, Dark Side of the Moon, make it to the Top 20. Just like their other albums, this latter record was fairly quiet until the last quarter. Never appearing in the Catalog Chart Top 100 before the week 44 of the year, during the last 8 weeks of the year though it moved from positions #7 to #25 on it. Since the introduction of the Comprehensive ranking in 2011, Dark Side of the Moon charted at least 6 weeks every year, proving once again its undeniable lasting appeal.
