RE-UP: Pink Floyd live in Copenhagen 1970 - 2CD - November 12

Pink Floyd
Falkoner Centret, Fredriksberg
Copenhagen, Denmark
12 November 1970

Audience recorders 1 + 2: merge of two tape transfers

Disc 1 (First Set):

01. Astronomy Domine 10:35
02. Fat Old Sun 14:18
03. Cymbaline 13:22
04. Atom Heart Mother 18:15

Disc 2 (Second Set):

01. Green Is The Colour 5:01
02. Careful With That Axe, Eugene 11:24
03. Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun 14:07
04. A Saucerful Of Secrets (recorder 2 spliced in at 1:59) 19:11
05. The Embryo (recorder 2) 8:24

Total time: 114:40


Recorder 1 has speed fluctuations during the first part of AHM due to tape damage which fluctuations I didn't even try to address. The master tapes seem not to have been preserved that well, but it has powerful, upfront mono (!) sound as well as a bit of tape hiss (that's right folks, the music breathes). SQ is VG+ almost pushing EX- and Nick's drums can be heard very well as well as the other instruments. In short, it's among the best of the 1970 tape sources.

Recorder 2 ASoS was speed corrected with a 104.3 stretch, The Embryo 105.9 (fluctuations from 7:15 till the end)
Recorder 2 here comes from an damaged tape, which damage gets worse towards the end, it suffers from background noise, tape bleed-through and speed fluctuations. SQ is VG at best.
