Best Wall Live ROIO

Post by Zepeleptic »

What do you guys think the best Wall Live ROIO is? (considering quality, audience level, band level, and band performance)

I've only got one - Monopoly - Live Nassau Colliseum N.Y. 28.2.80. It's not that good. Too much crowd; music muted. Good 'extras' on disc two, though - Birmingham Town Hall, 11.2.70.

Has anyone got a Wall ROIO that features a performance that's on ITAOT? :?:

I downloaded a little bit of "Little black book with my poems" from the LA live concert and it was ok, i also heard some of Azimuth Coordinator Part 3 which was ok.

wall roio

I'VE GOT THE AZIMUTH COORDINATOR VERSION. IT'S THE BEST ONE I'VE HEARD BUT IT IS A LITTLE DISJOINTED IN PARTS BUT THAT IS KIND OF THE GREAT THING ABOUT ROIO'S. I THINK THE "WALL IN PROGRESS" (DEMO TAPE) OF WALL IS FANTASTIC.

why bother with ROIOs when you can buy the Is There Anybody Out There? CDs... it even comes with a nice little book if you buy the box set!

True... but it's probably your best starting point as far as the wall live goes. After that I think it's best that you get a hold of one of the VCDs, like the Earl's court show, since the wall was such a visual show.

btw... not meaning to be fussy, but wasn't ITAOT made up of lots of shows between 1980 and 1981?

I dont own that album as it is too expensive in my local music shop and wil not pay riduculous prices for it. :lol:

BTW, being fussy or factual is certainly encouraged around here!! :)

I got it for 15 quid actually from the local Avalanche. if you don't have an Avalanche in your town then look for a Fopp. It should be about that price in there to.

Actually, where does everyone get their cds from? I can honestly say i've never spent over 10 quid on a floyd album (except umma gumma (13) and pulse (15))

Is that Avalanche on Cockburn street...? a fine record shop, and thoughtfully placed right beside Fopp!

You go to Edinburgh a lot?

Nah, i go to the other one opposite Bristol Square 'cause it has more selection. Although i go to Fopp when evere i'm near Prince' Street. Best deal i got there was the Crazy Diamond book for 2 quid or The Wall for a tenner.

But yeah, Fopp on that treet or avalanche opposairte Bristol. Occasionally on Cockburn street, but not usuall out of choice.

(Fopp rocks.)

I remember the day I got Is There Anybody Out There?. The 'long box' version.

Tenth of September 2001.

Felt pretty good. Holiday in Rock, Cornwall. (Good name.) Boats, sunny sides, a wind.

Twenny quid. Goodo!

We listened to nothin' but Le Wall. Beau! Power.

"...will I remember the songs..."

I LOVE that bit. Gilmour's singing on The Wall has GOT to be his best.

'Comfortably Numb' goze wivaht sayin', really.

Brilliant. :shock: :D 8)
