MoneyComments:From Pigland East - This tape is complete and with only one minor cut--a very brief tape flip at 44:03 into the second set, which indicates the taper was using a 90 minute cassette. As usual, FRP strivesto bring you the best possible sound without destroying the archival value of the source tape by attempting a heavy remastering job. The audience claps after the 3rd verse during 'Pigs (3DO)' and Roger didnot squeal a number. The audience is generally very quiet and respectful, which is a refreshing change from the standard audience recording of this tour. Not a single firework to be heard! David performs an incredible jam during 'SOYCD (Pts. 6-9)'. This is truly a recording of a band playing at its peak.From Pigland West - I'm listening to the show again. What strikes me the most is the amazing clarity of the recording and the polite and obviously captivated audience. They are like a Japanese audience--quiet when they should be and clapping/cheering where appropriate. Hard to believe they are French (just kidding Pigland Europe!). The performance, I think, is rather uninspired but certainly an excellent and competent one. A bit mechanical, maybe. Does David mess up the words in one of the songs?Other Comments: So what do YOU think, dear listener?
