Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun 14:40 Total: 72:24Comments: This show really must be listened to with headphones, since there a lot of details and nuances in the performance that are well worth listening to. For example, note Rick's fade-out at the end of 'Eclipsed'. Disc one has a few minor dropouts early in the master tape, but they are not too distracting. There is also one small dropout in 'One Of These Days', and the closing stanza of 'Echoes'.
A wonderful performance. Tracks like "Breathe" and "Time" have a dreamy, ethereal quality to them that is somewhat lost in later performances and the "On The Run" jam ("Travel Sequence") is superb. Sound is extremely good for an almost 40 year old audience recording. Thanks very much for this Doctor F!
