Dub Side of the Moon is a dub reggae tribute to the 1973 Pink Floyd album, The Dark Side of the Moon, co-produced by Easy Star All-Stars founders Michael G (Michael Goldwasser) and Ticklah (Victor Axelrod).[1] Dub Side of the Moon has remained on the Billboard Reggae Charts since its release in 2003.[2][verification needed] Easy Star All Stars released Dub Side of the Moon: Special Anniversary Edition, on CD and vinyl, on September 16, 2014.[3]

Release details[edit]

Included with the liner notes are instructions on how to synchronize the album with the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and produce a variation of the perceived "Dark Side of the Rainbow" effect. The album has sold over 85,000 copies thus far and Easy Star All-Stars have been regularly touring in support of the album.

A DVD of a live performance of Dub Side of the Moon was released by the Easy Star label in July 2006.

In 2010 the album was remixed in a bass-heavy dub style and reissued as Dubber Side of the Moon[4] Easy Star All Stars released Dub Side of the Moon: Special Anniversary Edition on September 16, 2014.[3]
