Comments: It has the entire first set of the concert, INCLUDING ECHOES! Actually, Echoes is faded in during the first verse. Otherwise, its complete. Gilmour talks to the crowd a little, too. Sound quality is decent for the most part.

I think the tape speed may be a little slow, unfortunately. Either that or they're playing a bit slower because it was early in the tour and the new version of the Floyd hadn't quite jelled yet. Also, there is a tape hiss throughout the disc. -ANONYMOUS

Massive tape hiss and a lousy recording. Much better versions of this are being circulated in tape trader's circles. Avoid this one like the plague. -LIVE MUSIC REVIEW

Sound quality could be better. It's clearly a soundboard source (presumably the one referred to in "Journey Through Time & Space With PF"), but unfortunately of very high generation - the tape hiss is overwhelming in places. - THE HEDONIST

Sound quality is acceptable, but unfortunately, Echoes is cut off at the beginning; it starts at the beginning of the second verse, and there is a one-second "clip" at the end of the song. Otherwise a good CD, though, especially in light of the fact that this contains the only Echoes on CD I have seen from the 1987 tour. (It was not played in 1988 or 1989.) -ECM
