|Comments:|| REQUIRED. Could easily have been a major label release.
Times measured, indexing off. -OSO
Despite occasional distortion, sounquality on this CD is
much better than the Mauerspechte RoIO, from the same
year. The dates given are September 18/19; although there
is no indication of which songs were recorded when.
Echoes lacks its slow coda, and Atom Heart Mother features
the famous "We can play out of tune" orchestra. No very
special versions of these songs, but a recomended
purcase at c. pound 20.
EDS' NOTE: there appears to be no record of "Sarceful..."
being played at either show. -TAP (#50)
This one is absolutely a must-have. Great show -PIET
Another 71 show that captures Floyd at the Montreux Jazz
Festival on September 17/18th 1971. The tape source is
EX stereo and the packaging, lacking in information consists
of an insert with colour photos. -BD (#24)
My copy is definitely mono; highly recommended nevertheless.
Excellent sound quality. Very good performance of Cymbaline.
Other than that, I find this title to be very disappointing.
30min is wasted by the orchestra version of AHM. The other
songs have equally uninspired performances. Better
performances of all songs can be found on many other titles.
Not recommended unless you really like the orchestra version
of AHM (thank goodness this was the last AHM peformance with
the orchestra) or just want to maintain a complete
