All that is now, all that is gone, all that’s to come … (Pink Floyd’s 741-week stay on the LP charts)

On Oct. 8, 1988, after more than 14 years on the US album charts, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon dropped out of the Top 200. Released in March 1973 (and eventually spending only one week at the #1 position), the album had a presence for 741 weeks on the charts, whether it was the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart or the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart.

Dark Side of the Moon was Pink Floyd’s eight studio album and sold more than 45 million copies worldwide. Originally titled Dark Side of the Moon: A Piece for Assorted Lunatics, the band began working on the album at Abbey Road Studios in May 1972. The first song to be recorded, on June 1, was “Us and Them.”
