Did You Know?


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.

Visually orgasmic!

OK, so having been at this concert my opinion is slightly biased, but it was like being at Devil's Tower for the final scene of Close Encounters of The Third Kind FOR REAL! This was 1988 and no band or any multimedia presentation since has come close! The Olympics and Superbowl have had some good multimedia displays, and that video of the building in Germany I think when they used a projector to make some 3D images, the Tupac hologram, and some of the videos of Christmas lights are cool, but this was 2 hours of that stuff combined with the clearest 3D surround sound music you've ever heard at a live event! Tickets were $25 when most tickets were $15, but it was well worth it! The concert is on YouTube and if you haven't seen it check out "One of These Days" or "Run Like Hell" if you want to see why a light show is called a light show! I have no idea how promoters are getting people to pay $450 for floor seats now! $25 back then was 2 tanks of gas and now 2 tanks of gas is $100 and if a band isn't giving a multimedia presentation equal to this for $100 you're being financially raped! I bought like 8 copies of this on VHS back in the day. I had to replace them because the VCR ate them, or because friends borrowed/stole them, or because I played them so much they wore out. The CD doesn't have "One Slip" but the DVD doesn't have "Money"! Can you imagine releasing a Pink Floyd video and cutting out "Money"?
