Comments: For an audience recording, sound quality on this album is surprisingly good; probably a result of NoNOISE.

This represents Pink Floyd at its best; especially Wish You Were Here which, with a wonderful Rick Wright keyboard coda, is far better than the original. Have A Cigar has also been improved, being far more powerful. If you like these songs as much as I do, you'll love this CD. -TAP (#50)

A very good audience recordin of the WYWH part of a 77 concert. Sound is very clear and there isn't very much audience noise. Perfomance is good, but not as good as at Oakland May 9th 77. Rick Wright though is probably doing his best show ever, he does some wonderful solos, especially the piano solo at the end of Wish You Were Here is very good. -TOR

Great sound quality, an awesome show. Definitely recommeded! -ECM

All the comments about the show and the recording are right, but there's one problem during the first few minutes: Some idiot in the audiences is setting off firecrackers. You hear the BOOM, then you hear the audience's annoyed reaction. After that, everything is great. -ANON

A fellow on the net just told me he purchased a copy of Pink Floyd's Welcome To The Machine on another label other than The Swinging Pig. His label is WELFARE PIG. Same title of course. -ANON

This cd contains the best recording of the 77 tour. Sound quality is definitely superior to Plays the Animals, In the Flesh, or the Azimuth Coordinator. The only drawback is that its only half a show. Still its the best sound your going to find. - Greg

A extrodinary recording of the "Wish You Were Here" portion of the 1977 tour. Wright's keyboard work during "Wish You Were Here" is exceptional; much better than the 1977 show I attended in Philadephia. The sound quality is superior to those RoIOs of the 1977 tour; however, this is only half the show. However, anyone who is looking for an exceptional live recording of the entire "Wish You Were Here" should invest in this RoIO. - ABDABS

Welcome to the Machine 7/2/77 Madison Square Gardens. My copy has a different cover, somebody sitting on a hill in a chair watching TV with trees in the foreground. About 4 min. till the end of SOYCD pt 9 a ticking sound starts. It becomes quite annoying the closer you get to the end. - Dan
