Comments: An excellent performance. Roger is in rare form this night, talking to the audience as I've not heard before. He does an interesting introduction to Green Is The Colour, doing some brief CWTAE sounds. Before Set The Controls, he does some German ranting to the audience. Prior to Saucerful, he does some humorous bantering. Musically, the main draw of this release is the inclusion of Corrosion and a Grooving With A Pict type jam. This is one of only two performances of Corrosion that I currently know of (the other is included on, among other places, Stranger Than Fiction - this is definitely a different performance). The Grooving With A Pict is a semi structured jam that features Roger's Scottish ranting and guitar/keyboard meanderings (it's been 10 years or so since I've listened to my Ummagumma LP, so I cannot give a detailed description on how closely this performance matched the studio song). The remaining song performances are strong. The recording is decent, though not nearly as clear as Smoking Blues or Remergence. Recording quality aside, I find this performance to be more engaging than Smoking Blues and would quickly recommend it over Smoking Blues, which occurred just 7/8 days after this. If you value unique performances, or just love the 1970-1971 shows, this title is rated as essential collection material. If sound quality is more important, however, definitely go with Smoking Blues, which is still a very good and somewhat unique performance. However, my performance standards run contrary to most of the Floyd reviews I've read (based on performance I prefer the Brutish Temptation show to Smoking Blues, and find the Montreux 1971 show to be relatively boring). So, you may need to take my opinions with a grain of salt. -EDEN
