This is an excellent DVD. Superb sound and
visuals. Very generous quantity of music. The CD includes a few
songs that are not on the DVD. I don't think that the post Waters
material is great, but this pulls like a greatest hits from those
discs on disc one along with a few other key tracks from The Wall.
The liner notes are limited.
This landmark DVD features the first ever film of Pink Floyd playing
the band's seminal album, The Dark Side of the Moon, live in
concert. The set documents the 1994 Division Bell tour and was
filmed at London's Earls Court during a record-breaking 14-night
residency. The two-disc release contains the full concert
performance with rare backstage footage and previously unseen extras
making the collection a must-have for Pink Floyd fans.
Disc 2 features a live filmed performance of Pink
Floyd--David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright--performing the
group's towering masterpiece, The Dark Side of the Moon, in its
glorious entirety during the second half of the Division Bell
concert. Included on disc 1 are "Shine on You Crazy
Diamond," "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2),"
"High Hopes," and "Learning to Fly" as well as
never-before-seen rarities such as Bootlegging the Bootleggers and
exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of life on the road with one of
the world's biggest and most influential rock bands.
Mixed in mind-expanding 5.1 surround sound and
digitally re-mastered by James Guthrie, the Pulse DVD includes some
of original screen films used for the 1970s concert performances of
The Dark Side of the Moon (which were never filmed) as well as the
visual components for the piece which were remade for the 1994 tour.
