Comments: I would highly recommend this boot to all of you. It is interesting in going from 1969 to 1977 and the overall quality is really good. It is one worth having in your collection. -MISC

This is a collection of three other roio's; A69, BoT72 and WTtM (see Xref). It sounds like this one is copyied from those three mentioned (from The Swingin' Pig label) as they have no tape hiss at all. Only drawback is that the high notes are slightly wobbeling from time to time, thus making it a little less good than the ones from TSP. But then, it was close to half the price asked for the three seperate ones. Timing on cover is slightly incorrect, but it's only a couple of seconds +/-, except for those noted in track list. Set 1: Has some tracks that not often shows up on roio's, like 'Biding My Time' (PF doing Jazz) which is a great tune. A lot of very nice improvisations between the songs. Gilmour's voice isn't at the best during this show, which is very evident on 'The Narrow Way' where he is completly out of tune and can't reach the high notes. Set 2: A great 'early' performance of DSotM. It have's the 'On The Run' jam, 'Time' is the slow version and TGGItS has the preachers tapes. 'Time' and 'Us And Them' is cut down, and Eclipse is faded out a little early. Set 3: Again a great performance, from 2 July 77 in New York. Rick Wrigth does a fantastic job on this show, he has some very good synth and piano solos at respectively WTtM and WYWH. -TOR
