According to the press release, listeners are encouraged to listen to Flaming Side of the Moon and Dark Side of the Moon simultaneously. “For ideal listening conditions, fans are encouraged to seek out the original Alan Parsons’ engineered quadraphonic LP mix of Dark Side, but it will work with the album on any format,” the press release adds.
