    Straight from "The Hidden Track" blog:

    Hidden Track » Grousing The Aisles: Dale's Picks

    "If you don’t already have this bootleg, stop whatever you’re doing (hell, even if it’s sexy time) and download it now. You have to hear this pristine multi-track SBD recording made by the BBC on November 16, 1974. This is the 2nd set and encore of the band’s performance that night: a full performance of Dark Side Of The Moon followed by an Echoes encore.

    Now, even if you already have this recording in your collection, you’ll probably want to download this new version. All of the processing applied to previous versions has been eliminated through the use of a source closer to the original BBC tapes, and many previous versions in circulation did not include the Echoes encore. This is seriously an amazing treasure of a recording, possessing the ability to make Dark Side Of The Moon sound fresh and new to the ears. Best of all, it does not sound like a bootleg and it does not sound 33 years old."

    This is pretty dang cool if you ask me as it's the only time I've ever heard "DSotM" in its entirety with Roger!

    Rats. When I saw this thread, I thought you were talking about Muddy Waters.

    it amazes me that stuff like this turns up, and is available for free download. I would think that would this be a commercial release, it would represent a huge cash cow for the Pink Floyd members. I know I would have plunked down $ to buy it on CD.

    Example: "Is there anybody out there: The Wall Live" Sold truckloads of copies... why would this be any different?

    Im not complaining... Im thrilled to get this for free... its just amazing that it just now surfaced.... to me anyway.

    EDIT: for poor typing

    If you Google "Pink Floyd matrix mix" you can find this show mixed to 5.1 apparently from the same pristine pre-FM SBD masters along with audience tapes. It's out there in DVD-A, FLAC, DTS, as well as others. Haven't heard the DVD-A yet as I don't have burning capability at the moment.

    I finally listened to this. Killer. Just plain killer. Why they wouldn't officially release something like this I have no idea.

    Also listened to the Zep. Interesting but very rough around the edges. But it's a soundcheck of course. [​IMG]

    I was baffled by that myself. Other than the recent Wall live release, there's really nothing out there with Waters on any "Dark Side" material.

    Finally had a chance to burn this onto a disk and listen to it. Great stuff, Thanks Ron! I loved Echoes on this one (big Meddle fan). By the way, is the first track a bit screwed up (cuts off early and then no sound for a while) or did my copy mess up somehow in the burning/downloading process?

    Cool, glad you enjoyed it!

    Hmm, I don't recall any drop outs in the track but I could be wrong.
