This was known to have taken place before the Berlin performance on 21 July. It is an absolutelyclean studio take, complete with chatter between and during tracks. This is not be the final, full-up rehearsal with all of the artists that appeared in Berlin.The story: Someone who worked in the post-production studio made a copy of the master tape. He (or she) took a studio stock pre-printedcassette cover and typed the title and date of the performance on it. The cassette cover typing reads:2.5.90 Roger Waters RehearsalsThe Wall BerlinPreprinted information:The Town HousePost Production140 Goldhawk Road, London, along with address and phone numberThe studio still exists under a slightly different name. This is untracked, just the way the music is on the tapes. They have been digitally transferred without editing or sonic tweaking. What you hear is the virgin sound, just as it came from the studio. You can hear Roger giving directions, a click track once in a while, and sound effects made up on-the-spot, such as the shuffling of feet to mimic marching boots. These little highlights make you realize that you *ARE* in the studio.One hilarious point occurs during the close-out to 'Waiting For The Worms', when Roger begins to rave on and on in what sounds like German while the band plays a goose-stepping jackboot march. 'Stop' and 'The Trial' are from the studio release, but they were played at the rehearsal. You can hear this when 'Stop' begins and Roger says "we've heard this...just keep going, just keep going" and he chimes in on a few words. So sit back, put on a pair of headphones, and enjoy a Wall show that you've never heard, in a way that you've never heard it.
