Comments: The times of the songs on the back cover, are different from the the times on the CD, and the real times. On the CD, there are some errors on the separation of the songs.

BRILLIANT!!!! On the Run is completly different, and The Great Gig is also different (the beggining of TGGiTS seems like the end of SOS, when R.Wright plays beautiful chords on the organ,then there is something said, and then it's like the early years, like Interstelar Overdrive ).

D.G. and R.Wright sing at the same time in 'Time', but the melody they sing is different from the one on DSoTM. Also, R.Wright instead of saying "Tired of lying in the sunshine..." says something like "Lying supine in the sunshine..."

The initial effects of 'Money' are different.

'Brain Damage' is not complete: they don't sing the second part from "The lunatic is in my head..." to "I'll see you on the dark side of the moon." -RICARDO

My copy was the Psychedelicmania show of 29 April 1970. Apparently, there has been reports of people with the same problem, and the reverse -- buying Psychedelicmania and getting Great Gig on the Moon. In other words, try before you buy, if you can. I got this at a convention, so I'll just have to bitch to Teddy Bear Records ... -ANONYMOUS

This is great, excellent recording. Some audience talking in quiet bits -- my Japanese isn't good enough to hear what is being said. A few problems with timing when two or more vocal lines at the same time, but nothing too annoying. Love the guitar jam version of On The Run. Very atmospheric version of CWtA,E. Excellent, recommended. -KeithC

The best 72 cd I know of. Far better than TSP's, Best of Tour 72. This is one you don't want to let get away as long as you get the right cd. - Greg
