Run Like HellSource: Mono SBD audio track from Master Betacam tapes except tracks 10-11-12: Mono camera audio track from Master Betacam tapesDetails:On 07Aug87, a TV crew filmed Pink Floyd rehearsing for theupcoming world tour (the tour started on 09Sep87 in Ottawa),inside a big hangar at Pearson Airport, Toronto.The total length of these rushes filmed during the band'srehearsals is around 55 minutes.Two different mono audio tracks were recorded by the TVcameras: one directly from the soundboard, the other beingsimply the audio recorded by the cameras microphones(technically very similar to an audience recording).The present recording comes from an audio transfer from themaster Betacam videotapes. The soundboard source was usedas much as possible, the exceptions being On The TurningAway, One Of These Days and Time, for which only theaudience track seems to have been recorded (the worstsound quality is during Time, when the camera was filmingfrom the right side of the stage, capturing a strange mixof sound coming from both the main speakers and themusicians monitors).The audio was carefully mastered (levels adjustments,editing, slight EQ, and manual cleaning of some buzzeshere and there). This mastering was also used for the SBDaudio track on "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason Rehearsals"DVD authored by JME from Cochon Production.Apart from Signs Of Life, the songs are incomplete and thereare cuts during some of them (the TV crew didn't filmcontinuously). However, songs like Echoes, Learning To Fly,The Dogs Of War and Wish You Were Here, are very enjoyablebecause they are captured almost completely.And the sound quality of the soundboard tracks is justfantastic!Enjoy!MOB.
