Did You Know?
When flipping through the crate of albums in the cabin, Hopper settles on Jim Croce (1972) after bypassing Pink Floyd's "The Dark side of the Moon"(1973) and Supertramp's 1970 debut. The creative team clearly wants to place the collection (and the cabin) squarely in the early 1970's, roughly ten years prior to the events of this episode (1984). However, the edition of "Dark Side" used here is a later release, the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab version, first released in 1979. Also, there is a price tag on the cover, which clearly shows that the album was purchased at a tag sale, or some other used LP store. While the record shown existed in the world of the film, it would have only been 3 or 4 years old at that point, and would only have been known by audiophiles and super fans. It most certainly would not have shown the wear and tear evidenced here, so it is likely that it was purchased as a prop at a used record store by the creative team without realizing that it was a later re-release.
