Pink Floyd: 08Apr75 Vancouver, British Columbia
Opening Night of the 1975 North American Tour

Man of Leisure Music (MoLM)
Issued February, 2004
SHN format
Expands to three [3] discs

Speed corrected and remastered from tapes given
to Danalog by Roy in Canada from what we believe
with reasonable certainty to be second generation.

Essentially, the taper gave our source, Roy, a copy of
the original tapes some time ago. Recently, Roy
contacted MoLM and asked if Danalog would be interested
in having a shot at fixing them up and putting them
on disc. Of course we were interested! The old
Maxells were sent to Danalog in sunny Arizona, and
now you get to enjoy the results.

While there is still a fair amount of tape hiss, the
overall sound quality of this roio is excellent.

Man of Leisure Music did extensive comparisons with
The Azimuth Coordinator, part 1 08Apr75:

< both are taken from the same root source
< unknown which is lower gen
< AzCo pt 1 actually runs just a bit fast
< AzCo pt 1 may have been "dolby-ized" thus muffling it
< MoLM version has more audience between tracks
< MoLM version much fuller sound but more tape hiss
-- tape hiss across too broad a spectrum to defeat
