Cover: A picture of a poster promoting the Pink Floyd concert, hanging on the
Berlin wall (I think) with lots of graffiti. The poster have 'THE PINK FLOYD'
written in pink and shows the top of a head (with afro hair), where naked people
are walking out of it. Four page booklet which includes the following text; M A
U E R S P E C H T E After the success of their first German concerts in January
1971, the band returned to play at the Sports Palace in Berlin on the 5th of
June. This was the first rock concert ever to be held at the Sports Palace in
quadrophonic sound and the band incorporated their amazing psychedelic light
show for the first time: A giant, cosmic spectacle which, if it didn't actually
tear down the Berlin Wall, certainly helps to weaken it in places! P I N K F L O
Y D Straight out of the studio, having just finished the "Meddle" album, the
band was in great form, playing dynamic versions of "Set The Controls For The
Heart Of The Sun","Embryo","Cymbaline" and "Fat Old Sun"". The climax of the
concert was the fantastic version of "Echoes", topped-off with the classic "Pink
Blues" as an encore. If you missed the concert - don't miss the recording!

Comments: CAUTION: Play Before Purchasing: Some have a defective disc 1
Astronomie Domine listed on cd but not included. A bit of audience noise in some
of the quiet spots. Some tape hiss evident. -OSO
Echoes has 'the' different lyrics as stated in the FAQ -PIET
I don't like this record. The music sounds as if it is 'far away'. No stereo
perspective and very qiet. -HERWIG
Track list on CD cover is not correct, it's the corrected one that is showed
here. Some of the times are measured with the CD timer. Echoes has two extra
verse at the start, that was only played a couple of times in 1971. Astronomie
Domine *is* on the CD but not where it (according to the cover) should have
been. Not a very good recording, it has distortion on the louder tracks, but is
interesting in some parts. Only for hard collectors. -TOR
Live in Berlin on 5 June 1971. Thoughtful packaging accompanies this one - a
booklet that reproduces the original concert poster and ticket stub! An
interesting set but the tape source only scrapes a VG+. -BD (#24)
Of possible amusement to George Choksy and other quad-system listeners is that
this recording apparently has a "problem" with phase shifting that will be
audible to some people on some systems. On a matrix quad system it might provide
an interesting swirling effect (that's my guess, anyway), like listening while
riding a merry-go-round. Not recommended if you get sea-sick in a bathtub.
It is distant sounding and doesn't reproduce the stereo "stage" properly
(recorded from off to the side?), and it shows that the large audiences talked
(even yodeled) during the quiet parts (but not obnoxiously) even in those days.
I like it a lot anyway! It has long beautiful jams. After fourteen minutes of
"Fat Old Sun" I had a glow that could have been mistaken for a good suntan. :^)
