I have never seen Pink Floyd live and that makes me sad. I've seen David and Roger, but never the great band themselves as one. It must have been quite a show. :D

I knew about ABITWp2 but caught the last half hour of the Berlin Wall show. I didn't know a thing about the Waters/Gilmour split. So watching ITV (Jimi, this is you from the future, just make this a post about seeing footage for the first time) Won over? I wrote a letter to Teletext under the penname David Gilmour's Trenchcoat. Because I seriously thought he was wearing a Trenchcoat during his performance!
Will get a copy.

This is a serious question; if one already has "The Delicate Sound Of Thunder" and "PULSE," is there any point in picking up any more live stuff from that era. I mean, isn't really all just the same stuff?

One of my favourite performances from the AMLoR era

Wasn’t at the gig but still have the cassette that I recorded the live radio broadcast. Because it was broadcast live on FM in the UK in its entirety there were some excellent bootlegs produced and this gig remains one of my favourite performances and bootlegs.

The bootleg of this performance remains a firm favourite as it is unedited....

Having listened to this version many times from the Later Years box set I am equally thrilled and frustrated by this release. It sounds (and looks) brilliant but didn’t escape the edit and as such Money and Comfortably Numb both have edited performances. They are fortunately only slight edits but they are enough to make me not part with my treasured bootlegs from the same show.

With all that said, the vinyl sounds tempting

Oh and I don’t like the cover, I would much preferred a live shot from the concert

This is my most watched video from TLY Boxset as its such a good performance very energetic and is the hidden gem from this era in the box set. I dont mind the edits in Money as its still one of the best versions of Money from this 87-94 era its how they should of done the edits on DSOT. Sorrow is so good on this. I have always liked David's guitar tone on the intro too RLH

Whilst we know the set list so well there are enough individual elements that make this stand out

Candy Dulfer on the Sax is brilliant and particularly adds something to Shine On
Claire Tory on Great Gig (not the best rendition but still special for her return)
Sam Brown alongside her mum on backing vocals. Her mum sadly passed shortly after due to cancer
Sorrow is a belter
Michael Kamen joins the band for keyboards on CN
It also pissed it down with rain which seemed to spur the band on.

I think they played out of their skin on this night, Shine on, Sorrow, Money and the second solo on CN are spot on

Sadly, I despise Sorrow.

It might even be my LEAST favorite Pink Floyd song. It was certainly the only one I actually booed when The Pink Floyd Experience started playing it.

I accept that the 'intro' is a waste of time - but the song itself is magnificent! [-X
