Other good choices that I missed:
The Rolling Stones, "Exile on Main Street."

Bob Marley & The Wailers, "Legend (Deluxe Edition)."

Not on the same level IMHO, but popular with a lot of people: Amy Winehouse, "Back to Black."

Elton John "Best of" album and a Marvin Gaye album as well, but it's just 29 albums, so too long to list here, but easy to browse yourself. Have fun, save money, and enjoy February 29, 2012!

@lichme: My post points out a specific item that people might like, much more useful than the generic post, especially considering the junk Google threw in with the pearls.

The 2011 remaster is worth a listen. Things sound crisper, you can hear the attack of the guitar more, and it's even more delicious for the ears...

Oh yeah, and it's dark side of the moon, the best album ever.

At the risk of asking a stupid question, can you download music from the android market website to your computer, or does it only work with an android phone/device? Basically, can someone who does not have an android device download these songs?

vote-for8vote-against

@djp519: YES! Yes, you can download it. I do not have an Android device myself. IIRC, you can either download it twice without downloading and setting up the Google Music Manager (I'll call it GMM), or if you install GMM you can redownload it as many times as you need.

The GMM will want you to set up a folder of your music to upload your computer music collection to the cloud. If you don't want to do this, just set up an empty folder for it to "upload" from. I chose to do this because I have too much music and no real use for a cloud-based music solution since I'm rarely mobile.

Pink Floyd is timeless. Nothing currently being written/produced can come close to the quality of PF's music.

I've heard some great things about the remastering. Going to have to check this out.

Odd question and I don't have network access or iTunes access so I can't check, is there a Google music player for the iPhone? If not no big deal, I can get the music and import it, but was curious if anyone knew.

I really hate paying for the same music more than once but this is a pretty good deal with the 10 extra live tracks. At the same time, I usually think of my music spending money to be an incentive for the band to make more albums but in this case, that probably won't be a factor. Thus, I am conflicted. Anyone know if Pink Floyd is on Furthur?

Nothing like a remastered classic album compressed down to mp3. facepalm

just downloaded - each song ends early(abruptly), anybody else having the same problem?

The 20th anniv. CD is the best version I have heard other than the SACD version which was the absolute best @ 6 analog channels of perfection.

@drummingcraig: heh thats exactly what I thought when I first saw it. I am glad I wasn't the only person who thought the same thing.

VERY Nice! Not much interesting in that list but I think the point was to pick albums people would buy. The Bob Marley album interests me as well Thanks for the find

Little known fact: This album has been on the Billboard top 200 the longest out of any album ever. It has never left it since it's release date in 1973.

@dmmutti: It will never fall off the list.
My college age son and his friends were just as excited as we were when it toured.

@drummingcraig: that explain's why it's $2.99. i'm hoping for a blu ray audio version that cost $29 or less :-P

@dlmorris: That's funny, Amazon hadn't matched the price of "Dark Side" when I posted this; it was still $9.49. I wonder when they adjusted?

@sumduud: There appear to be a couple apps for listening to a Google Music library on an Apple device. The more popular of the two I found (gMusic and Go Music) is gMusic, which runs on iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads running iOS 4.1 or later.

@micapa: Just listened to all the transitions in my download of it from today on iTunes 10.5.3.3 on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and the only sharp transition I noticed was the change tracks eight and nine of the live recording, which may have been in the performance. The main album transitioned seamlessly from track to track, as did rest of the live portion.

How were you listening? Perhaps you could download it again? Also, I downloaded my copy through the Google Music Manager application. Google may be able to help you get a clean copy or work you through the issue if all else fails. Good luck!

Where were YOU the first time you synced this album to the Wizard of Oz?

vote-for3vote-against

@micapa: When I stream music to my phone some songs end abruptly. The second song "Breathe" also seems to cut in in the middle of the song. When I downloaded or played the songs on my computer these issues weren't there, though. Maybe it's just a streaming issue?

@criticalcritic: An audio engineer named Bryan Pugh published the synced full-length black and white Wizard of Oz + Dark Side of the Moon video to Vimeo in October 2007, and it's still kicking (titled "The Dark Side of Oz"): http://vimeo.com/333721. This is where I first watched it, sometime in the second half of last year, sitting in front of my computer in my room, by myself. Oh, yeah, good times.

@micapa: I second @leonardotmnt with wondering if you were streaming. When I streamed it right after I bought it, the tracks did abruptly switch. I had a streaming Napster account until they merged into Rhapsody, and the same thing happened. I think streaming audio tends not to be programmed for gap-free tracking.

@drummingcraig: I bet you couldn't hear the difference between a well done 320 and a CD. Audio engineers know what they are doing these days.

@enantiodromia: with my setup you can. Then again the wife calls me weird when i spend $30 just to listen to a Rush album that i've already owned in DTS HD-MA
