Comments: I find recordings from the Japan '72 tour to be considerably better than the recycled Feb. 17, '72 show in London. In particularly this one. First off, it contains the entire DSotM! Us and Them isn't hacked (nor is Time or Brain Damage), and Eclipse is not faded. The sound quality is VG+ to Ex for this time period, and the polite Japanese crowd is felt but not heard. Furthermore, OotD is the best I've heard. Listening to it, you are moved with its rapid drive. This version is especially unique because they begin experimenting with their electronics during the 'Dr. Who' section to generate this 'race car' sound which zips around your head. Check it out.

The video has nice footage, but I'm skeptical about the sourcing. The live footage to "AHM" does not correspond to the music (your lips move, but i can't hear what your saying!...and just how does Dave make those guitar sounds without moving his hands?). Cymbaline is credited to be from the Fillmore, but it looks more like the BBC/Top Gear studio. No complaints about The Making of the Wall. But again, nice to see images different from the Miles book." - PIG1DO

The recording is extremely distant, but sounds OK if you wear a good set of headphones. Vocals are loud enough, yet hardly any drums.

Performance wise, a strong one. The band does a great OTR and Money has some trouble at the beginning (enjoyable, though).

Its not a must have, but since it's the only RoIO of that show it's worth having in your collection. - Toddstar
