Comments: For those of you who are keeping count, Andy Newmark played the poly-rhymic drum parts on "Two Suns in the Sunset" on TFC. I suppose the rhythm was too comlicated for Nick.

Doreen Chanter and Katie Kissoon also back Roger on KAOS and ATD. Doreen sang "Molly's Song" the B-Side of "Who Needs Information." They do not sing on When the Wind Blows, to my knowledge.

Tim Renwick is the only (?) musician to have been a member of Roger's band and PF Mach III. Michael Kamen conducted the symphonies for The Wall and TFC. - CEI

This 2 CD set sounds very nice, not quite as good as the vinyl "Roger", but then that was from a radio show.

The version of "Have A Cigar" is one the best I've ever heard, Clapton really plays it well. - MISC

I would rate the sound quality G+ or VG-. There is a lot of 'tape hiss' and the stereo-separation is below average. However, disc 1 is a pleasant surprise because many songs are being performed in an unusual way (like IF and WYWH). Disc 2 (+/-oHH) is on average closer to the original, but it still has a nice touch. -ANON
