Notes: The second night at Royal Festival Hall. Again, cosmetic work was kept to a minimum in order to provide the actual ambience and feel of the evening. This time no annoying usherettes to get in the way, but the crowd seems to be far more feisty than the first night. One person in particular, who's presence can be felt in the right channel found it necessary to be quite vocal. We cleaned him up as best as we could,especially his more obnoxious moments, but there's at least one cut that can be heard due to him saturating the channel.

It was an another outstanding performance that was alot cleaner in terms of technical presence. Richard Wright appears again and is seemingly less hesitant than he was on the first night. Another highlight of the night is Sir Bob Geldolf singing Comfortably Numb with Gilmour. His representation is far more powerful than Robert Wyatt's performances.

The Interview with David Gilmour is from the "Later with Jools Holland" - BBC 2 Radio interview conducted/broadcasted on December 10, 2001. The interview material is fantastic, and highlights include Soundboard recordings of some of the songs played during the Meltdown Festival.
