MD5 Record Set: Disc 1 - Disc 2 - Disc 3 - Disc 4 - Disc 5 - Disc 6
- If I hadn't been asked by friends to record this show (& whom paid for my ticket) I would have never attended this concert. Not to offend anyone (but I'm 100% sure that I will) IMHO the 1970 onwards Pink Floyd & Roger Waters are two of the most yawn inducing major artists in music, try as I can (& have) I can't as the old jargon goes "get into them". It is to me mind boggling how they became so popular. Yet I loved pre 1970 Floyd & of course Syd Floyd. If you can understand that I see Dark Side Of The Moon & The Wall as musical equivalents of sleeping pills (even today if I hear a track from either album I reach for my running shoes) then you will also understand that attending a Roger Waters solo concert for me was akin to an alcoholic fronting up to his first AA meeting. Very daunting indeed. Anyway I went, prepared to be bored to death (I was) but I was a brave little soldier all the same & pressed record as the lights went down. Fortunately there was a intermission so I could proceed to work on the parts of my body that had fallen asleep ;-) But it's after this much welcomed & much needed intermission that things went wrong. Arriving back at Ned Kelly headquarters later that night & intending to playback the evenings entertainment ;-) I found that DAT One was an excellent recording of the first set but DAT Two was as silent as Harpo Marx, Not one second of Mr Water's & his crew were to be heard. Zippo. Zilch. Zero. Sometimes as other tapers know things do go pear shape, but in this case it is still a mystery as to what happened that night. Pushed record for a 2nd time, saw that the levels were pleasing etc etc. No worries. No indication then that something was amiss, but amiss it was. With other incomplete recordings in this series I know the reason why they are incomplete, but this one I'm as mystified now as I was then. Anyway I'm sure that Roger Waters fans will enjoy it all the same, regardless of my personal view. This recording has been traded a few times but I'm under the impression that it isn't in heavy circulation.
