* 1st 40 seconds lifted from "Delusions of Maturity" boot


Very nice audience recording from early in the Pink Floyd "Momentary Lapse of Reason" tour. I am 99% sure that this is the "RB" source -- a legendary Chicago-area taper who turned out phenomenal recordings throughout the 1970s and 1980s (and probably still does today, although his recordings tend not to circulate as widely). I think this is one of the top audience recordings from the tour.

I decided to upload my source even though there is a 40-second cut between "Money" and "ABitW" because the sound quality appears to be much better than other versions in circulation. I surgically inserted the missing 40 seconds from the "Delusions of Maturity" bootleg which appears to be the same recording from a much higher-generation tape. I speed-adjusted and did some minor EQ to make the transition as seamless as possible; you shouldn't notice much other than a significant drop in quality for those 40 seconds. This is a brilliant recording; there is, however, some audible hiss during the quietest parts -- I thought it better for the individual to de-hiss to their own taste rather than risk eliminating some fidelity from the overall recording.

It appears that they didn't perform "A New Machine Pt. II" this night for reason -- it didn't appear that there was a cut in the tape, although I may have missed it. This seems unusual, though, because Floyd wasn't a band to tinker much with the setlist.

No artwork, sorry. Fingerprints are included, however.
