Comments: This is a AUDIENCE RECORDING. It suffers from all the usual audience recording maladies - lots of crowd noise, really bad distortion, muffled vocals, you name it. If it didn't say Pink Floyd on the cover, you'd never know that was Dave and Nick playing up there (I'm still not totally convinced myself). Rachel and Margret handle all the vocals, so that's no clue that Dave is up there either. However, the playing is spirited and the band is having fun with the oldies. For real fanatics only. Also, there may be some confusion about the actual date of this performance. I have listed it as Nov. 10, 1987 from the comment on the back cover, but it could be the European date listing and actually be Oct. 11, 1987. Any clarification would be appreciated. -GOLGO
