Comments: Finally the full set of encores of this concert are available on CD! Previously to my knowledge only ASoS was available, albeit in a truncated form. This 2 CD set has the full concert including the 2nd Encore with a fantastic version of IO. The SQ is fantastic, definitely soundboard as Dave and Rog sound crisp and clear as if right in front of the mics.

A slight hiss can be heard in the right channel on the first disc, but the second disc is flawless. No hiss at all can be heard during the quiet parts. It could have been recorded last week in a studio it sounds that good! That being said, there are some very, very brief "bumps" in the music at various parts, but it's obviously due to the condition of the master, but definitely nothing at all to complain about.

Other comments on the concert itself can be found on the Live at Winterland page. They all apply, as (duh!) it's the same show.

As far as the discs themselves:

All inserts are on thick glossy card stock.

The labels on the discs are directly screened on them.

The playing surfaces on the discs are gold (the disc tops say "24K Gold"), but the color resembles the old formulation on Kodak CD-R's rather than the color on legitimate Mobile Fidelity releases (the style of which this RoIO tries to emulate). However, whether or not the CD's might actually be CD-R's is pure conjecture on my part. There doesn't seem to be any indication on the CD's (no matrix numbers in the burst cut area) that they are CD-R's. -JAY-C

It's an almost perfect quality soundboard of the april 29, 1970 fillmore west evening show. I bought it thinking it would be the KQED tv broadcast but was pleasantly shocked when it turned out to be this. As far as I know this tape has not been in collecting circles before. Needless to say this recording is a must have for all fans. -JAMIE

On the back, it says "So you thought you had heard this show before? Never Like this! For the first time we bring you a complete stereo soundboard recording of this show that has often been confused with their appearance at the KQED studios earlier in the day. (See Insert). Unfortunately, as I got this on CD-R, the insert didn't have any information as to the nature of this. However, it appears to fit the exact description of the "Breast Milky" ROIO, but it has Interstellar Overdrive in place of the June '69 material.

Before Interstellar, Roger says "If any of you have been listening to us since we were all teenagers, this is a track off our first album that we've been doing ever since we started and it's called Interstellar Overdrive."

I think the sound quality may be better than on "Breat Milky" (but I haven't heard that one, so I don't really know) because the sound quality is quite good. Maybe I just have lower standards. -STR

Back cover promises "stereo soundboard recording", and it appears to be just that. Audience is exceptionally quiet (one of Waters' deeply romanticized nights of "magical connection" no doubt. At the end, when Waters tells the audience "how nice it's been to play here", he sounds sincere.

Supposedly recorded the same day as the KQED TV show. Band sounds relaxed, in top form, playing their well honed (if somewhat somnambulent) "Atom Heart" tour show. Vastly superior quality to the "Pepperland" audience tapes around, but missing the druggy ambience. A great, consistent, complete performance in a very professional "Original Master Series" package. FIND IT AND BUY IT!!! -CZY DMND
