Notes: What a fantastic recording! Work done to this show was minimal in order to provide the actual ambience and feel of the evening. The sound quality was already presented very well - so our work was minimal.

It was an intimate evening with a few special surprises, such as the appearances of Richard Wright and Robert Wyatt. Despite some lackluster reviews, and some minor difficulties for the band during the show - this is a gem of a night and it sounds like a great time was had by all... Even David!

The Interview with David Gilmour is from the Johnnie Walker - BBC Radio 2 interview conducted/broadcasted on October 26, 2001 in support of Echoes: The Best Of Pink Floyd.
