Comments: This is a jewel. The DSoTM set is taken from a BBC broadcast (from Webley Arena, November 16 '74), so the sound quality is simply fantastic. Onely once under the "Greate Gig In The Sky" are there some drop-outs, but these last onely a second and are therefor harmless. Rather more servere, however, are the noise on "Shine On...", the live premier from the Palais des Sports, Paris '74. It's really not worth listening to more than once - just look on it as a bonus track to 'fill up' the CD. All in all, this is one of the best Floyd RoIOs that I have heard. EDS' NOTE: As the Floyd played the Palais des Sport on June 25/26 and had premierd "Shine On..." in Cambrai on the 14th, make of this CD's claims what you will. -TAP (#50)

A note on the disc says: These historic recordings may contain surface noise or distortion due to age of the master recordings used. :-) -DAve.

Great sound quality on the Dark Side set, very good on Shine On, which was taken from Palais des Sports in Paris on 7 June 1974 (apparently the first time it was played live). -ECM
