Comments: It is advertised as being recorded in Italy 1974, but........ It is the soundtrack to Live At Pompeii taken from the Laserdisc, minus the DSOTM stuff. -ANDRE

The lyrics for StCftHotS are very clear, the music outstanding, as it is for most of this CD. OoTD is missing the wind at the beginning, Echoes seems to have what sounds like momentary tape slippage at a few points between the 9:00 - 11:30 mark. Overall a great pickup, as there is no crowd noise. The definitive version of Echoes to me.

Suppossedly recorded from the laserdisc, this is nonetheless a very good recording of some classic early Floyd. 'Echoes' is dramatic, witha different beginning, and a great 'jam' section highlighting Gilmour's guitar work. I also really like 'Set the Controls..' on here, as the vocals are really clear, and there is added 'humming' between verses. The middle section also highlights Gilmour's guitar. A worthwhile pickup. -BEAKER
