Pink FloydPalace TheaterWaterbury, Ct.18 March ,19733 Source MatrixRecorded from the audienceSource 1: From "The Collectors Edition", discs 1&2Source 2: From "The Collectors Edition", discs 3&4Source 3: 4th generation cassette Wherever possible I used the full length of each source. Any missing material was overdubbed with the longest and/or better available version, correcting for changes in volume as best as possible. Of course, the sound of the matrix changes during these sections, as the number of sources drops, sometimes to 1. None of the sources were perfect so there are a fair share of defects still in this matrix. It does have a full sound and is now more complete than any single source, with all cuts bridged by the others.There is still noise and hiss left here, further efforts to remove it all would reduce the effects all the sources give each other. Some sections are nice with very good sound, other sections will require a forgiving ear. My hope was that I would be left with a concert more like the one the audience heard that evening. I think that was accomplished.After many hours of hand crafting this concert at the keyboard I have some personal highlights. I enjoyed Gilmour's work in the first track. Set The Controls and Carefull are very nice. Dark Side is OK but really perks up during any use of taped effects and I especially like the backup singing in this piece.Listen for what sounds like Roger on the giant gong at the end of "On The Run". This is the first time I've thought of Mason and Waters as a rythym section, parts of this show have a jazz feel and overall I'm becoming more impressed by Waters bass work. Please do not change these files or notes in any way whatsoever.If someone wants to upgrade this concert I suggest they gather their own sources and create their own matrix.You will find that it's an enormous amount of work !!Set One:Obscured By Clouds/When You're In 12:32Tuning 1:39Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun 14:10Tuning :53Carefull With That Axe Eugene 13:10Tuning :46Echoes 22:57Set Two:Dark Side Of The Moon 49:13One Of These Days 9:24 I would like to dedicate this show to an old friend, Steve,a Moody Blues and Floyd fan who has seen both bands about 70 times combined .To quote Steve regarding the 73' tour, "Sound came from everywhere !...." Indeed, it did !!
