Notes (from many sources):

This two CD set features a complete show from the 1977 Animals tour (aka 'In The Flesh' tour).
It's notable for it's very good performance and the rare encore of 'Careful With That Axe, Eugene'.
A song that hadn't been played for a few years at that time and has never ever been played since then.

'Roger Waters' shows some real venom in 'Pigs' and 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond, pt.VI-XI' features some
outstanding jamming which cannot be heard on the original studio recording.

It's an audience recording but of such good quality that this show has been bootlegged many times. Titles like
'Oakland Coliseum', 'Animal Instincts', 'Plays the Animals' and 'In The Flesh' are among the most popular and common boots.

A great recording of a great concert. The band seems to be having a lot of fun (something I assume was rare during the In The Flesh Tour). Roger and Dave laugh hilariously throughout the first verse of "Have a Cigar". The setlist is a winner, too, including "Eugene" as the final encore. (David) does seem to get a bit annoyed at the crowd when before "Us and Them" he tells the crowd, "This one's got a quiet beginning."
