  • Sup The clarity of sound is incredible -UNKNOWN
Comments: If you can find it, get it. This has to be some of the best live stuff I've ever heard. It also has some cool photos inside. -UNKNOWN

It seems to me that the RoIO-makers are stealing from themselves. Tracks 1 to 8 from disc 1 are _exactly_ the same as on "Embryo" (from TSP) and tracks 9 to 12 from disc 1 and track 1 of disc 2 are from "Libest Spacement Monitor". I can hear absolute no difference. Only tracks 2 to 4 from disc 2 seem to be from another source. These also differ in quality from the rest: There are better versions around (e.g. "One of these Days"). The sound from the "Libest Spacement Monitor"-tracks is indeed breathtaking good. -HERWIG

Disc 1 tracks 1 - 8 are BBC Top Gear recordings. Quality is VG+ not Sup, lots of vinyl crackle.

Disc 1 tracks 9 - 12 and Disc 2 track 1 are BBC In Concert from 16th July 1970. Excellent quality although there is dropout during "Careful" (xref with LSM)

Disc 2 tracks 2 - 4 are BBC In Concert from 30th Sept. 1971. Most likely source is "Eclipsed" vinyl ROIO. Not de-clicked, lots of crackle. Better of with "One of these days" as mentioned above.

If you don't have any BBC recordings it's a good place to start. -TUZZ
