Brain Damage
Hopefully someday available in upgraded sound, the Wembley 1974 radio broadcast was an early favorite of mine.  A mature Dark Side, in its entirety, in order, and by itself.  The aura of lasting achievement isn't difficult to detect.

Echoes in the Gardens
Stunningly good audience tape from 1975.  Includes early performances of songs that would appear on Animals.  The Wish You Were Here album is still being developed at the time of this concert.

Dragged Down By the Stone
The February 1977 shows are some of the best of the tour, as the fatigue and malaise hadn't quite set in and the songs were sharp and bitter without the contempt that grew more evident as the tour progressed.

Mr. Pig
The best-yet pressing of this well-known Oakland 1977 concert.  Even better than "Animal Instincts".

Caught In the Crossfire
Wish You Were Here fans, this one's for you.  A complete, uninterrupted, in-order performance of that entire album, heavily improvised and in great sound.  Early on, a moment of revelation is heard: "He's taping this!"

Who Was Trained Not To Spit On the Fan?
Clever title poking fun at a famous incident in Floyd lore that occurred at this concert, and which went on to partly inspire "The Wall".  Lots of blatant pathology, and the last live original-band performances of a boatload of classic songs.

Under Construction
This is why we collect these recordings.  A riveting glimpse at the drawing board on which "The Wall" was being built, in perfect studio sound.
