The Digital Dan:
Now finding a Floyd soundboard is not a common occurrence. Of all the major bands from the early 70's, Floyd is the least represented by board sourced live recordings of the other major acts of the time. This soundboard came to the members of DR in May of 2001 and is quite interesting. The set list on this Italian performance differs greatly from the official release "Pulse" and is also different from the "Earl's Court" gigs including the official Pulse video and the various bootlegs of those shows that were broadcast. This particular source is an analog tape and is a few gens old, so there is some tape hiss to this show. The sound is quite good, maybe a little lacking in the high end during certain parts of the show. All in all a very good performance, but nothing of major note happening on this night. Well, take that back, something worth hearing is the "kazoo orchestra" during the break in "Money". It's pretty funny and you can hear the "kazoo players" having a hard time of it. Seems that they are doing everything possible not to laugh while doing it. Nice to see serious Floyd have some real fun at their own expense.
