Matrix: CD1: ACL 001/2
CD2: ACL 002/2
Cover: Same as the original vinyl version though modified for CD reproduction, it looks like the manufacturer had access to the original vinyl art. Front: White cover with AHM cow, looking back while standing on a hand drawn road. Hand drawn city visible is the distance, and a stand of trees is to the left. "Atom Heart Mother" in original type at top, with hand lettered "goes on the road" cutting across it. Hand lettered "Pink Floyd appearing at Paris Theatre, London 70-71" in lower right corner (noticeably neater lettering than original vinyl). Back: White backdrop with hand lettered track listings, the times listed are incorrect. Lettering from vinyl has been totally redone for the CD, though much neater this time. Band personel are listed, and it is claimed to be a limited edition of 1500 numbered copies. Hand drawn building sillouhettes across the bottom. Inside: White booklet opens up to show four color shots of the stage from what looks like the DSOTM tour, back of booklet has a b&w photo from around 70-71, and the back of the tray lines has what looks like film strips containing various head shots of the individual band members, also on a white background. The CDs themselves are printed with a take off of the Harvest record label, Yellow and green with the lettering all hand done in the same style as the cover. Claims to be "Produced by Pink Floyd Fans". Really nice looking.

Comments: Track times from cover.

The sound is slightly better than the Swingin' Pig versions of these shows. The artwork is generally the same as the original vinyl, though improved. -JEFFB

Rumoured to be taken from a fairly official source in Norway.

There is a slight drop out approximately 17:00 into Atom Heart Mother.

I wouldn't say that the sound is overall better enough than the TSP versions to justify scrapping those titles, it seems _slightly_ better than "Libest Spacement Monitor", but I am not sure about "One of These Days". I guess an upgrade depends on whether or not you have both of the TSP versions.

All together, an excellent packaging job, and a possible slight upgrade in sound. I picked it up simply because the original vinyl version was one of the first Pink Floyd roios I'd ever bought. -ANON

There are a number of dropouts and scratches to note. There is a fade in AHM, probably the one mentioned above. Otherwise the sound is pretty good. It seems crisper sounding than One of These Days, though it is a bit scratchier sounding and has distortion every now and then.

A note in the cover says: "We have used a ow generation master tape to get the best possible sound. We do however apologise for the "dropout" on "Careful w/that axe....". This was due to a fault on the original master." -DAve.
