This may or may not be one of the crucial recountings of Dark Side of The Moon, but anybody who

crackle and hiss of old; cleaned up and equalized, it has a stereo impact that
almost rivals the studio vinyl (almost:

beauty - the guitar solo through "Time," "The Great Gig In The
Sky," "Any Colour You Like" - that Floyd's refusal to release an
official live document of their Seventies peak becomes ever more baffling.
