Pink Floyd entered the 1970s known mainly as an experimental band, but after they replaced founding member Syd Barrett with David Gilmour they began their transformation into a progressive rock group. “The Dark Side of the Moon”, which turns 40 years old on Saturday, was the pinnacle of that era of the band, as Carter Alan explains.
