Comments: This is _exactly_ the same record as "Darkness over Frisco", click for click, pop for pop. Tracks have same length. Even the Matrix# of the CDs seem to be identical! -HERWIG

I haven't heard the xrefs, but I think they are about the same sound quality since they are most likely from same source. A bit weird that the guys making the record have messed around with the order of the tracks, though. The 'real' playlist (the order the songs where performed at the radio show) is the following: 1. Atom Heart Mother, 2. Cymbaline, 3. Grantchester Meadows, 4. Green is the Colour, 5. Careful with that Axe Eugene, 6. Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. The xref Colourful Meadows has this 'correct' chronological playlist. Both 'Darkness Over Frisco' and 'America' has the same miss-ordered tracks, making me believe one of them is a more or less direct copy of the other. It's not a huge problem though, one could always program the cd-player to play the songs in the correct order. It's more interesting (IMHO) to hear the songs the way and order they were performed and all the stuff between.

Sound quality is as good as it get from a 30 year old recording of a radio broadcast :-)

All in all a very nice record. A bit laid back show. Nice way of spending an hour. -ANDREAS
