Pink Floyd: The Wall, February 8, 1980Los Angeles Sports Arena, 2nd performanceof the tour. Second night of seven scheduledperformances.First of the seven Wall show roios re-releasedas "THE DEFINITIVE WALL SERIES" in early 2001 byMan of Leisure Music (MoLM) [www.flupe.com]These seven shows were chosen because of theirhigh quality, unique features and, at the time,very low circulation.This particualr show had leaked out througha small number of trades, probably as much asthree years before it was put out on the Floylivelistserv.Sourced and carefully re-mastered by Dan Kraft,aka Danalog.More work went into this one than all the otherscombined. At least, that's the way I rememberDan describing to me all the tweaks he made tothis show to clean it up, correct the speed andbring out fuller sound.There are many reasons why this show is such akeeper. The obvious one is that the boys pulledoff a much better show than the night before.(It's nice they didn't ignite the curtain this time.)This is also clearly the second best sound qualityWall roio of the six shows that have circulatedfrom the California gigs, 13Feb80 being the best.There are interesting nuances to it, including whatI would consider to be one of the coolest jams ofthe concert series! Another Brick part 3 (set one,track 12) is drawn out to an incredible 7 minutes,45 seconds to give Wall builders that had fallen behindmore time to catch up. The recorded music of thechildren singing during Another Brick part two failsto happen (set one, track 5, about one minute in)and the band kicks in and improvises. During HeyYou, Dave sings both verses, when normally, Dave singsthe first and Rog sings the second.Originally, about 20 clones of the master copy wereweeded or traded out in .wav format using EAC to ripand NTI CD-Maker to burn. Now, MoLM has embarked uponarchiving all our releases in shn. Enjoy.
