|Cover:||A picture of a poster promoting the Pink Floyd concert, hanging on the Berlin wall (I think) with lots of graffiti. The poster have 'THE PINK FLOYD' written in pink and shows the top of a head (with afro hair), where naked people are walking out of it. Four page booklet which includes the following text; M A U E R S P E C H T E After the success of their first German concerts in January 1971, the band returned to play at the Sports Palace in Berlin on the 5th of June. This was the first rock concert ever to be held at the Sports Palace in quadrophonic sound and the band incorporated their amazing psychedelic light show for the first time: A giant, cosmic spectacle which, if it didn't actually tear down the Berlin Wall, certainly helps to weaken it in places! P I N K F L O Y D Straight out of the studio, having just finished the "Meddle" album, the band was in great form, playing dynamic versions of "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun","Embryo","Cymbaline" and "Fat Old Sun"". The climax of the concert was the fantastic version of "Echoes", topped-off with the classic "Pink Blues" as an encore. If you missed the concert - don't miss the recording!|
