Billboard 100 for 1973. It was also the only song on the seminal album that made it into the Top 20. For those who were there, most find it cemented in their minds and are able to recall many of the details - the real mark of a great show. It's memory urged me to start this blog.
This concert on that warm late June evening was performed during a huge rainstorm and was set-up in an expansive quad sound arrangement with large speakers placed in the rear corners of the lawn area near the fences. The aural display with the swirling effects in several of the tracks was enough to leave lasting memories for all who were lucky enough to be there. I would safely say that anyone who left those stunning shows was soon shortly in the possession of a DKSOTM album, which most would still have somewhere nearby today.

This audio of "Money" from the first night is from a popular sound recording known as "Breaking Bottles in the Hall" and has pretty good sound for the time:

For an interesting treat, this is a demo recording of "Money" Roger Water's made in a garden shed.
