Comments: REQUIRED. Could easily have been a major label release. Times measured, indexing off. -OSO

Despite occasional distortion, sounquality on this CD is much better than the Mauerspechte RoIO, from the same year. The dates given are September 18/19; although there is no indication of which songs were recorded when. Echoes lacks its slow coda, and Atom Heart Mother features the famous "We can play out of tune" orchestra. No very special versions of these songs, but a recomended purcase at c. pound 20. EDS' NOTE: there appears to be no record of "Sarceful..." being played at either show. -TAP (#50)

This one is absolutely a must-have. Great show -PIET

Another 71 show that captures Floyd at the Montreux Jazz Festival on September 17/18th 1971. The tape source is EX stereo and the packaging, lacking in information consists of an insert with colour photos. -BD (#24)

My copy is definitely mono; highly recommended nevertheless. -ANON

Excellent sound quality. Very good performance of Cymbaline. Other than that, I find this title to be very disappointing. 30min is wasted by the orchestra version of AHM. The other songs have equally uninspired performances. Better performances of all songs can be found on many other titles. Not recommended unless you really like the orchestra version of AHM (thank goodness this was the last AHM peformance with the orchestra) or just want to maintain a complete collection. -Scott
