DJ Comments


This set from Sigma collects together two sources on the three discs: the audience tape of the entire show on the first two discs and the partial radio broadcast on Disc 3.

Coming from a low gen, the audience tape used for Discs 1 and 2 is much clearer than previous versions of this recording.  And, while there is still hiss present it is very low down in the mix to be almost inaudible.

Disc 3 is an edit between the FM broadcast (aired by FM Tokyo 1972) and an audience tape.  The radio tape runs only from “Speak To Me” through the beginning of “Us & Them.”  The tape has been issued before, most recently on Dark Music (Sirene - 118) which has the radio tape only.  Sigma claim to use the DAT clone of the reel master for this release.  Regardless of the source it does sound really good.  It isn’t taped professionally as most radio recordings are.  It was probably taped on stage with very good equipment, but one shouldn’t expect a pristine, well balanced soundboard recording on Disc 3.
