Eric Clapton's stint with Roger Waters really was a pivotal turning point in his career. His management was decidely opposed to his appearance as a "sideman", but this collaboration brought out some of EC's finest playing in over 20 years.
The ectours.de site lists the following: "The show was not sold-out, as promotion for the event was sparse, and the Horizon was not at that time the most popular venue for concerts."
I received this CD set in trade years ago, apparently a tape dump onto CD, with no individual tracks.
I extracted it, did some light EQ and noise reduction. The "Pros and Cons" portion of the setlist I tracked as well as I could. Personally (and I know I'm in a minority here), I find it tedious to the extreme so I did the best I could.
It is what it is, not very listenable at times but a worthy document of this tour.
No one beats Floydians for purist trading and collecting; This is my attempt to do the best I can with what I have available - feedback is welcome.
No cover art; it would be great if someone created some to reflect this remaster.
