Trivia

Although Dave Gilmour stated around the time of its release and on a radio interview in 1992 that the album contained no studio overdubbing whatsoever, he embellished the tracks during mixing with some extra acoustic guitar on "Comfortably Numb", according to engineer Buford Jones. In addition, some harmonies were replaced by studio re-takes: Richard Wright re-did his vocal on "Us and Them" and Sam Brown replaced Rachel Fury's part in "Comfortably Numb"but the rest of the album was what was played at the shows.

Ehhhhhh......
17 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well it would have been a whole lot better if it was presented the same way as P.U.L.S.E. Just to name a few of the problems with this video: the solos are chopped, it doesn't focus as much attention to the band as it does the audience, at times it shows clips from other shows, the style of filming was absolutely horrible, I could go on and on. A few positives: David's guitar work is terrific, the light show was great, and the backup singers were AWESOME on The Great Gig in the Sky! Overall, though, it was a classic example of a concert video with great potential being ruined by poor directing and modification for MTV. However, the CD of this concert is awesome! If you want to enjoy Delicate Sound of Thunder, I highly recommend the CD over the video. If you want a good Pink Floyd concert on video/DVD, P.U.L.S.E. is the way to go.
