 Recorded at The Floyd's Britannia Row Studios

 (Sept-Dec, 1978 & Late 1979)
& Super Bear Studio(April-Aug 1979)
in France.

This is just like being in the studio with the Floyd!

This is the studio demo track they drawn on to record the final mix of their "Wall" album: every track IS a radically different unreleased version to the album's.

It includes loads of unedited mixes, never released tracks (merged into other songs), different lyrics, original sound collages etc ...

Without the full lush arrangements you get a good idea of what Roger Waters had in mind when he first conceived The Wall: a dry, alienating & beautiful descent into his tormented mind.

It is a real surprise is to hear the band as the original 4 piece experimenting like in "the good old days" with all sorts of different ideas that didn't make it onto the final mix for most: various synth lines, weird sounds, raw guitars, strange sound collages etc... One can appreciate the massive task of editing and changing most of these songs to fit on the double album we all know.

It is "The Wall" like you have never heard it before: just brilliant!!

RE-UP: Pink Floyd "The Wall - Original Film Sessions" - 2CD

Pink Floyd
January 01, 1980
The Wall - Original Film Sessions
Early Audio Pre-release Soundboard Mix for the Official Movie

I got this in trade with a fellow subscriber of the old Brain Damage Magazine back in 1995. This has a completely different sound then what you are used to. There are some different lyrics and you can hear instruments and sounds in this mix used throughout the recording that were buried in the official release. This is a true gem.

Two songs at the end of CD 2 are filler songs that came on the tape. The first two songs are from an unknown live Roger Waters concert. What I find interesting is that WYWH is a very quiet relaxed version without drums for the most part of the first half of the song. Nice version. Following is Brain Damage/Eclipse from the same live unknown concert date. A VERY bluesy version of Eclipse in which Roger actually asks the audience to sign along during the middle of the song. It then turns into more of a Hard Rock song in the end. Easily my favorite version of the song.

RE-UP: Pink Floyd "Extended 370 Roman Yards" - 1CD - unreleased album

Pink Floyd - Extended 370 Roman Yards


This is the EXTENDED album of the Soundtrack for Zabriskie Point that never was, once performed entirely by Pink Floyd, now released by MQR.  This Album is similar to the 1997 Rhino Soundtrack that was released with a bonus disc featuring eight extra tracks from Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia.  In similar fashion we here extend the Lost Album with 8 complete songs recorded by Pink Floyd for the movie and rejected by M. Antonioni for one reason or another.

   This is the natural product of years and years of passionate research applied to the Zabriskie Point topic by WRomanus.   Over the years many theories have been presented, and we all know a good researcher has to prove his theories whenever possible.  In recent years his dedication has yielded the deserved prizes.

   "I had the luck to get from Glenn Povey what I call simply The Document, part of the ZP recording sheets of EMI studios.  I was also able to make contact with Don Hall, the Music Adviser of the movie. I'm honored to say that this contact became a real friendship.  With my great satisfaction almost all my theories, even the most incredible, were confirmed."

   This Album is part of the Complete Zabriskie Point Collection (CD1) and the box set called A Total Zabriskie Point of View.

3:10  01.  Heart Beat, Pig Meat
4:40  02.  Country Song              
1:54  03.  Fingal’s Cave            
5:55  04.  Crumbling Land      
5:44  05.  Alan’s Blues                  
6:51  06.  Oenone                    
6:53  07.  Rain in the Country  
5:02  08.  Come In Number 51, Your Time Is Up

6:23  09.  The Violent Sequence
2:12  10.  Country Song Theme (band)
1:18  11.  Country Song Theme (acoustic)  
1:11  12.  Take Off (version II)

The History
   In the summer of 1969 Michelangelo Antonioni completed the filming of his visionary and prophetic view of America and our society.  All that was left was to complete the movie with a good soundtrack.  Antonioni was interested in everything that was new and trendy among young people.  Don Hall was on the air during his nocturnal DJ program on KPPC FM Pasadena when he was contacted personally by Antonioni at the end of the summer of 1969.  Antonioni really liked Don and invited him to have some screenings of the movie.  After that Don provided a list of songs he felt would work, most coming from his program.  Antonioni asked MGM to hire Don as Music Advisor for the soundtrack and came back to Roma (Don still has a letter from Antonioni, sent from Rome with the list of the songs he'd like to be in the movie, all songs for the radio-desert sequences).

   Still they had to find how to score all the main sequences: Beginning, Violent, Take Off, Love and Explosions sequences (and eventually more).  Antonioni wanted original music for those sequences.  Many artists and bands were contacted to write original music for the movie, but none of them was asked to write the whole soundtrack of the movie.

   In October '69 Don was in Rome with Antonioni trying to find a way to score the whole movie in time for Christmas.  Near the end of the month it happened that Clare Peploe (cowriter of the movie and Antonioni's girlfriend at the time) brought to Rome a brand new copy of the new Pink Floyd album, Ummagumma, from London.  Antonioni, Don Hall and Clare listened to the new album with a small stereo at Antonioni's house in Rome.  Antonioni REALLY liked Ummagumma and listened several times to the whole album.  He liked “Careful With That Axe, Eugene” very much and told Don that he'd like a new version for the final sequence of Zabriskie Point. They decided to try and hire Pink Floyd to record all the original music they needed for the movie. MGM contacted Pink Floyd.  After that Steve O'Rourke came to Rome alone during the first days of November '69 to check and organize it all.  All was done in few days, and Pink Floyd came on the 15th of November with Pete Watts and Alan Stiles, cancelling some shows planned for their present tour.  Antonioni and Don showed the movie to them several times with some scenes already scored, highlighting those without.  At that point Steve and Roger Waters had a talk and asked Antonioni to try to score the whole movie.  He, been enthusiastic about Ummagumma, agreed.

   Pink Floyd produced a large quantity of music, especially for the Love Scene but Antonioni was not satisfied and the sessions ran longer than planned.  In the end Pink Floyd went back to London with some songs to finish.  Out of all the entire production of songs, including themes and variations, Antonioni ended up using only three songs.  He kept on searching for "something better" till the last days before the premiere of the movie.  In London Pink Floyd completed their final versions of eight songs with the intent of them being their eventual album for the Zabriskie Point soundtrack.


   What we at MQR present here is the closest thing possible to the album that would have been released by Pink Floyd in 1970 if they had been sole musicians on the soundtrack of the film, but extended with 8 more complete songs. The mixes on this record are either the mixes made by Pink Floyd for release, or as close as we could make using the material available.  We have restored and enhanced everything using the best technology and skills available to us. The quality of these tracks varies due to the sources used, but we have done our best to make it all sound as good as possible.


   Some songs used here were released officially, originally by MGM in 1970 and then in the extended edition by Rhino Records in 1997.  Other songs come from two celebrated unofficial sources, the bootlegs Omayyad and A Journey Though Time and Space.  Recently a better transfer of the ZP outtakes portion was made from the master tape used for Omayyad just for this work.  All the outtakes come from A Journey Though Time and Space.

   If this album had really been released in 1970 it wouldn’t have a title any different than Soundtrack For The Film Zabriskie Point.  A title is needed today to highlight this one from the multitude of collections released in the intervening years.
This title is invented based on Roman Session and assonance with the title of Omayyad.  All the songs’ titles are real, although “Country Song” and “Alan’s Blues” were only working titles. We knew all the working titles with the find of The Document where all are listed.  The three new titles, “Fingal's Cave”, “Oenone” and “Rain in the Country”, are taken from Omayyad, and for so many years were considered the fantasy titles of bootleggers.  Last year Don Hall confirmed that he aired those songs on KPPC FM Pasadena and announced them with just those names, as they were written on the tape' boxes sent to him by Pink Floyd. Omayyad was made from a recording of that broadcasting


1. Heart Beat, Pig Meat
This song is made up of the coming and going of Rick's Farfisa organ, Dave's excursions, recordings coming from televisions and talking lines by Don Hall, all over a heart beat like track created by tapping on a microphone. This is the first time Pink Floyd use a heart beat, but certainly not the last.  It's the soundtrack for the opening sequence of the movie with the titles, and one of the three songs ultimately chosen by Antonioni. It was performed live sometime in early 1970 as the initial part of an experimental suite.  The working title was Beginning Scene.

2. Country Song
With this song Pink Floyd meant to score some of the scenes in the desert with Daria driving her car as Don Hall confirmed.  The song was adapted into several versions in different styles, all recorded with the intent of being used as “Daria's Driving Theme”.  One of the two song for the movie with lyrics, which are in this case inspired by Alice in Wonderland, It came to us with its working title, probably because it was rejected before the end of the work.

3. Fingal's Cave
This name referred to Irish Mythology and a place in the Scottish isle of Staffa. This energetic song was written for the first Flying Scene of the movie together with two more songs.  It is rare to hear a loud, bombastic blues number like this performed by Pink Floyd, and only a couple pieces on More come even close to it stylistically. The working title was “Take Off (version I)”.

4. Crumbling Land
This is the long studio version with all the traffic noises recorded by Nick Mason in the streets of Rome.
Since the musical part is the same as the official one, a merge was made with the two.  The result is a restored complete studio version.  Having an unusual rhythm for a Pink Floyd song it's considered a country song, although in the end it's not.  For the movie only 34 seconds were used, and those were from an early take, not from the final version.  The title and some of the lyric content refer to Zabriskie Point (the place), to USA and the lyrics even include a reference to Michelangelo Antonioni.  Its working title was “Highway Song”.

5. Alan's Blues
This song arrived to us with its strange working title, probably because, similar to Country Song, it was rejected before the end of the work.  Although we have evidence that in December 1969 it was still intended to score a movie scene.  Alan Stiles was a roadie, present in Rome for the sessions.
When this was not released the band paid tribute to him with another number, Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast.  The base for this song was an attempt to satisfy Antonioni with a Blues for the Love Scene.
Once rejected for that, it was shortened to fit the roadhouse in the desert scene or perhaps another desert scene.  This kind of blues was performed live many times over the next three years.

6. Oenone
The name refers to Greek Mythology, similar to Sisyphus recorded a few weeks before.  Oenone was a nymph married to Paris of Troy. He left her for Helen of Sparta.  Oenone was an isle as well, connected to the Sisyphus story (!).  This song was surely written for the Love Scene, and Love Scene was likely a working title for it, as on the released tracks on the Rhino soundtrack. Pink Floyd tried four different musical styles to please Antonioni for that scene, including a blues.  This is the style that worked the best, from Pink Floyd's point of view.  It comes from several psychedelic approaches they tried under the direction of Antonioni.
   Great psychedelic performance by Rick and Dave, using techniques they experimented with live during Set The Controls, A Saucerful of Secrets and The Man & The Journey.

7. Rain in the Country.
Along with “The Narrow Way Part 1”, this song almost certainly has it's roots in “Baby Blue Shuffle in D Major” and in the second part you can clearly hear the germination of Atom Heart Mother (in fact The Amazing Pudding was performed only one month later...).  Probably another of many approaches to the Love Scene, Pink Floyd tried it for Antonioni coupled with the desert scenes as well, as Don Hall confirmed.  One of Gilmour's more interesting early compositions which really showcases his acoustic playing.  We aren't certain of the origins for the title but it was likely designed to create contrast with the dry locations of the movie.  The working title for this remains unknown. In fact a dissimilar mix was called “Unknown Song” on the 1997 Rhino Expanded Soundtrack.

8. Come in Number 51, Your Time Is Up.
The perfect song for the final sequence.  This song is the reason Pink Floyd were called to score the important scenes of the movie by Antonioni, who was impressed by Ummagumma.  It's a remake of “Careful with that Axe, Eugene”, but with some variations.  There is no whispered sentence before the shout, the shout itself bursts in together with the guitar solo, long and repeated.  Dave's solo is absolutely vigorous and demoniac and the song reaches high levels of intensity.  The end comes suddenly without the usual gradual slowing down.
   The title refers to the TV series "Q", a surreal comedy show in the vein of (and forerunner to) Monty Python's Flying Circus, and its creator, comic Steve Milligan, who spoke that line.  The working title was Explosions, in reference to the scene that it was to be used for.


9. The Violent Sequence.
This came from Rick Wright in Nov ’69 and was rejected, leaving the scene with no music. It was one of the few ZP songs played live sometime in early 1970. Two years later it evolved into Us and Them.

10. Take Off (Version II)
The second attempt to satisfy Antonioni for the flight above LA. A 3rd unknown version was also written.

11 & 12. Country Song Themes
Two variations of Country Song used to score some desert scenes.

13 to 16. Love Song Variations
In this disc we have the various attempts at scoring the Love Scene. Pink Floyd clearly preferred the psychedelic angle for this scene.

RE-UP: David Gilmour live in Manchester 2006 - 3CD - May 26

David Gilmour
"An Island On The Bridgewater Canal"
The Bridgewater Hall
26 May 2006

Recorded from Row N directly in front of the right hand PA

In my humble opinion this recording came out a dream however I shall leave it up to you to decide.

CD One
Breathe/Time/Breathe (Reprise)
On An Island (with Crosby and Nash)
The Blue (with Crosby and Nash)
Red Sky At Night
This Heaven
Then I Close My Eyes
Take A Breath
A Pocketful Of Stones
Where We Start

CD Two
Shine On You Crazy Diamond (with Crosby and Nash)
Wearing The Inside Out
Fat Old Sun
Arnold Layne
Coming Back To Life
High Hopes

CD Three
Wish You Were Here
Find The Cost Of Freedom (with Crosby and Nash)
Comfortably Numb

What a concert!!! It was everything I hoped it would be sound wise but the lighting blew me away.
It's a long long time since I've seen lighting so sympathetic to the music.

Right from the opening sound effects tape intro to Breathe to the closing Comfortably Numb 2 hours and
40 minutes later my jaw was metaphorically on the floor with amazement. And trust me I've seen a gig or
two in my life.

The first half, apart from Breathe / Time / Breathe Reprise was the entire On An Island album. I really
like the record but live it takes on a massive life of its own when given the room to breathe (pun not intended).

So many great moments in the first half that when the interval came I could have gone home satisfied.

However if I had I would have missed what is possibly (and this is a bold statement made partially out
of the euphoria still coursing threw my veins the morning after) the greatest presentation of a set of
live music I have ever witnessed.

I will not go through the second half song by song, although trust me I could.

Suffice to say in my opinion David has now refined the perfect second half. This was the same as he
played on the last three US shows. Moving Breath / Time / Breathe Reprise to the first half actually
imrpoves the flow of the second half.

The fact he played my three favourite tracks off the Division Bell was great.

Having missed the 1994 tour to see High Hopes live for the first time was a pure joy. This is in my
opinion an all time Floyd classic. I thought that would be the highlight for me and it was for the
15 seconds it then took him to follow it with Echoes.

Echoes was simply as stunning a presentation of a single piece of music as I have ever seen.
The lights, sound, performance and lasers meshed to make it a hypnotic experience.

Can't wait to see the show again in London on Monday but it can't be better than last night. Surely?

Thank you David and the band plus Messrs Crosby & Nash for a peerless example of how to deliver a concert which after 32 years of following both Floyd and their solo projects is as good as anything
they have ever done before.

David_Gilmour 2006-04-20 Gibson Amphitheatre

The sound is extraordinary clear and Gilmour's guitar is as powerful as « Gdanks » release.
You can almost hear the fingers touching the string  !
Sure that "moonwalk" was very close to the orchestra.

I kept the original recording without removing a comma, but :
During « Echoes » One of the channels was switched off during about sixty seconds.
Moonman fixed the problem,
Unfortunately 75 ms was missing in chanel 2 at 3"7s making a false stereo effect
I fixed here the problem. "Echoes" appears here with it's original sound.

  Since the beginning of the tour Gilmour has played the whole new album during the first set of each show. Initially, the show would open with this album but on April 16th, the day before this performance the decision was made to take the Breathe-Time-Breathe reprise segment and move it to the beginning of the show. This allowed him to welcome the audience after playing these songs and then introduce the new album before any of it was played. This worked well so it was used again during this show. During the second set, Shine On and Wearing The Inside Out are played, as they have since the beginning of the tour. This is followed by Arnold Layne which is performed here for the first time since October 6th, 1967 making this a very special show. The song was then included in additional shows in both Europe and the US and is featured on the Gilmour commercial DVD as he sings the song with David Bowie. The remainder of the setlist included songs played consistently throughout the tour. Both source recordings were excellent but had different dynamics and slightly different sound characteristics. At times, there is a nice stereo separation so listening with earphones is recommended.

This is the second time in a week I saw Pink Floyd, erhm
sorry, I mean David Gilmour. I liked the Paris Olympia
show a lot (see "He Spoke French!" FA024). At Paris, the
band seemed to enjoy themselves more, David was happy to
play in France and had a lot of fun and interaction with
the audience. The venue was very special too and a
majority of the audience was made of diehard fans and

Now Amsterdam First Night was very different. The type
of audience was more ecclectic, ranking from the usual
PF freaks to the housewife who was expecting to hear
Money but never heard of a song called Echoes. I won't
say the audience wasn't receptive or cold, but they were
very polite... I can't compare it better than with the
Japanese audience from the early seventies. It was a real
pleasure to be able to hear songs until the very very last
faded out note before they began to clap. It is very
enjoyable not to have to shout SIT YER FUK'N ASS DOWN.
Actually, in the middle of a song you might even think
this is a soundboard source, that's how quite and
respectful the audience was.

So yes, the venue wasn't on fire, and I admit the
performance was a little more mechanical than in Paris.
Maybe that the band felt the 'coolness' too, but in my
opinion and in terms of performance, this is one of the
best show from the European tour because they played
perfectly. All songs are flawless, Technical issues, unlike
on other nights, were minor and few (David "lost a bit
of guitar" just after A Pocketful of Stones but it didn't
screw up a song). The band gave the best of what they
could play, wrapped in stage smoke and laser shows that
hasn't to blemish from the comparison with the stadion
tours. Actually we are blessed David chose to play smaller
venues for this tour : half this show would be impossible
to play in open field or stadions. We couldn't have enjoyed
Dominoes, Wot's Uh Deal, and even this maestro
re-orchestration of Shine On anywhere else than in music

Who do we have here on stage? "The voice and guitar of
Pink Floyd" ; the original keyboard player and arranger ;
Dick Parry, the same sax as on the DSOTM album, the band's
first additional live musician ; Jon Carin who can be counted
as a fulltime live member since 1987 and also tours (and
will tour again) with good ol' Roger ; Guy Pratt, familiar
from the 94 tour too ; ... you bought a ticket for David
Gilmour, but you'll come out dreaming of the best Pink Floyd
show you've heard in years :-)

"..." - DG: "Sorry ?" - "You're 60!" - DG: "I know."
DG: "Right, we're gonna sing one more song here...
well, _ I _ am gonna sing it - they're gonna play it.
And this is called Where We Start. We're gonna take a
short break after this ... to regather our senses."
Some idiot: "SYD BARRETT I WISH YOU WERE HERE" DG: "Yeah yeah"
Some dude right before WTIO singing: "Is there anybody out there?"
Some other dude after CN: "Hey David, thank you very, very much"
and of course ... "YEESHKUL!"

From The Pink To The Blue
            The departure of Roger Waters from Pink Floyd was both a blessing and a curse for David Gilmour. Some Floyd fans and critics at the time thought that Waters had completely taken over the band, stifling the musical expressions of the others. After The Final Cut, Waters was gone and David Gilmour elected to move forward with his second solo album called About Face. This venture allowed Gilmour to showcase his talents outside of the sphere of Pink Floyd and freed him to explore different styles of music. This time, David Gilmour asked Bob Ezrin to help with the production of the album. Mr. Ezrin had produced The Wall and later was instrumental in returning Pink Floyd to the stage in 1987. Dave then formed his band by bringing together musicians from many different spheres of music. These included drummer Jeff Porcaro from Toto, Anne Dudley from The Art of Noise and even contributions from Steve Winwood and Pete Townshend.
            Pete Townshend helped David Gilmour write both Love on the Air and All Lovers are Deranged. When asked about this collaboration David made the following statement: “I had lyrics for those songs but I really didn't like them. I asked him for help because I was running short on time and even shorter on inspiration for improving the lyrics. I was very pleasantly surprised when I got the cassette back for Love on the Air. I like where he had put the line and how he had done the vocal. I had heard the vocal line in a completely different place and deliberately sent Pete a tape with no melody on it. It was just a completed backing track with no lines on it at all and no ideas as to what I thought the lyrics should be. He didn't have any restrictions. Of course in some places which I intended to be instrumental, he put words on. Lovers was the same situation, only I changed the placing of his melody and lyrics a bit”. -1985
            David Gilmour began the About Face tour with a brief appearance on British Television on March 30th, 1984, playing just two songs from his new album. This was  followed the next day by the first full concert in Dublin, Ireland, at the National Stadium. Gilmour’s set consisted of a collection of the best songs from his two solo albums and, inevitably, a few Pink Floyd songs as well. The European leg of the tour consisted of 23 performances including 4 nights at the Hammersmith Odeon in London during which a concert video was recorded featuring a surprise guest appearance by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason. The group then went to North America where 48 more shows were played. Beginning in Quebec on May 9th, this part of the tour took the troop across the United States to California, back East to Florida and ended with a final performance on July 16th in New York City.
            The show we bring you here was recorded in San Diego on June 20th, 1984, their first day in California. With an open air venue the sound will be a bit different than most audience recordings presented by PRRP. However, we feel that this performance shows David Gilmour and his solo band to be polished, versatile and a musical force in its own right; no small feat given the reputation of a band like Pink Floyd. The taper of this show remembers it well and provided us with the following details of that performance, “As for the mix, the way I taped that show was with a stereo Sony that had built in microphones. I used to hang it around my neck and let it hang around my chest area to get good lines with the speaker. If security would arrive, I would slightly lean one way or the other to keep the recorder out of view. You can hear the sound shift when I did that, but it is only brief and occasional. Since I was in the second row, I most likely got a bad mix anyway, monitors mostly, the PA system was too far on the sides to get the full blast of the mix.  I remember that I had a great time. The show was phenomenal.  Jody Linscott was just starting to show her pregnancy and Mick Ralphs just tore up his solos. My buddy went up and placed a one dollar bill on the stage right in front of David Gilmour as he was wailing away on (the song) Money, he broke his concentration briefly, looking up at our group and smiling with the head nod, it was a hi-five all around. To stand in front of Gilmour, 3 feet away, and watch this guy for two hours was a dream come true”.
            There were those who were concerned that the departure of Roger Waters from Pink Floyd would leave that band without a stable musical driving force. With this year of solo work, David Gilmour answered those concerns and showed that even without Waters, Pink Floyd was still well endowed with musical talent and that they could carry on despite the loss of one of their most noted members.

Notes from the Re-master
            This show comes to us as a master cassette tape. It was digitized using 32-bit format and 24-bit resolution. Analysis revealed music signal up to 11,000Hz. The complete show is here so no patches were necessary but the tape flips and change from tape 1 to tape 2 needed to be mixed. The taper provided us with the details regarding his location in the audience as noted above.
            Hiss was a moderate problem that was reduced using selective techniques. Crackle was also present throughout the show and needed separate techniques to be reduced. Given the frequency response of the recorder, the midrange was too harsh so filters were applied to reduce this excess. An imbalance between the two channels was present and a 12% correction was necessary. The mix does change through the show. During the first few songs the sound, and in particular the vocals are a bit distant even though we know the taper was in the second row. This improves by the time Cruise is played. Applause was attenuated where necessary and other noises such as feedback, clicks and pops were removed.

David Gilmour : The Lostbrook Tape Series - Volume 33

More than three years had passed between “The Wall” and “The Final Cut,”
and while I liked the new album, the shortage of Gilmour material was
shocking. It took another year of waiting, but in March 1984, David Gilmour
triumphantly returned with the release of “About Face.” I recorded this
tape from the third row of the loge as New York City welcomed back a true
guitar hero.

RE-UP: Pink Floyd live at Knebworth 1990 - 1CD - June 30 - soundboard

OHM 026
The sound quality here is excellent.

This is taken from the stereo broadcast.

Even "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell" are taken from the broadcast, as they sound
slightly different than the "clean" versions on the official "Knebworth - The Album".

It was a live broadcast, so there are some imperfections in the mix
(the debut vocals on "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "Wish You Were Here" and "Comfortably Numb"
are first too low mixed, then suddently perfectly audible).

1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part 1-5)  11:51
2. The Great Gig In The Sky    7:12
3. Wish You Were Here    5:54
4. Sorrow  13:22

Comments: This show is worth having for the following reasons:

1. It was Floyd's first (and I believe only) stop in Finland, which
   Gilmour notes at one point.
2. This is the complete show, with the exception of tape flips.
3. This strays a bit from the strict, keep-the-music-synched-to-video,
   never improvise nature of the "Momentary Lapse Of Reason" and
   "The Division Bell" shows due to the "technical difficulties" that
   cause a restart of 'Us And Them' and a good deal of time
   between tracks. As a result, we are treated to a really nice,
   lengthy solo at the start of the track by Rick, and some
   interesting noodling by David, to include a 'Johnny B. Goode' riff.

One good marker to determine the source of this tape vice other
possible recorders is the gasping, choking sounds of someone near the
taper just before the lead-in to 'One Of These Days'.

The tracks have not been split or edited in any way. They are at
48 Khz, the same as they are on the original DAT.
