Release detailsEdit

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. Artist and Drummer Patrick Dougher performed on the recording but did not tour with the band.[3]

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.[2]
