Perhaps more than any other album, Dark Side has been re-issued, re-mastered, and re-packaged. Re-releases include Ultradisc, Gold CD, Anniversary edition, Boxed Set,  and 180 Gram Vinyl version.

This is the original 1973 LP version and it’s perfect as it is.

The cover photo on the LP version of “Vs.” is  more content sheep than the CD version’s angry sheep.

Released 33 years ago this week,  this was Robert Plant‘s second solo album and scored a big hit with one of my favorite tunes, “Big Log.” Guitarist Robbie Blunt sounds ridiculously like Jimmy Page here!
