Very cool, very eclectic show. Some awesome psychedelia here. An excellent recording that lent itself well to the remastering process. Some of the audience passages were really loud compared to the show material
and that was evened out.The low end on the original was a bit out of control and the high-end was dull. Now the whole thing is much more accurate in range, and digitally maximized. It's almost as if you were there. -Original

This is great. It's mainly instrumental, but they're in riveting, mind-bogglingly great quality. Gilmour sounds etheral on "Green Is The Colour", as usual (also the arrangement with the piano makes this one of the best live performances of the song ever), and the performance of Careful With That Axe is simply one of my
favorites. The "vocals" in this one sound great too, but admittedly Roger's whispering in the Pompeii version sounds better than the noise he makes in this. Gilmour makes up for that with his singing on the track, though.
I cannot stress this enough. If there is one bootleg you MUST have, it is the Complete Concertgebouw concert. As a standalone album, this can take on some other Pink Floyd albums I could name and win. -Tenniru (
