Amsterdam '69
This radio broadcast resurfaced a few years ago, and this is the most complete, best-sounding version of this seminal early show.

Montreux Casino 1970
Don't miss this one.  They're right in your face.  Prepare to be floored.

Black Wizard/White Witch
Long a favorite of mine and even better now that the speed has been corrected.  One of the most polite audiences ever yields a phenomenal recording from around the Pompeii era.

Labyrinths
Very disturbing performance in startlingly clear sound.

The Return of the Sons of Nothing
Spacey Pompeii-era performance in fine sound.  "This is very avant-garde, isn't it?"

Dark Side of the Sky
One of my earliest boots, and still a favorite, this very early take on Dark Side in its earlier incarnation ("Eclipse") is very fascinating.

Just Another Gig in Boblingen
A fine upgrade of the famous "Looking Through the Knotholes in Granny's Wooden LegLegLeg..." show.  Need I say more?

Poitiers Rev 2
Another old favorite of mine, now better than ever at the correct speed.

Obscured at the Rainbow
The Dark Side vision is complete in its on-stage incarnation, yet the songs are still fresh.
