That said, I'll probably still make a few tweaks here and there.
    I get that Tried to go for clean and decent performances. I know the feeling of being new to boots and just thinking that everything sounds like shit.
    A great initiative from you Lennyif!

    I definitely thought of this one, but left it off due to the audience participation, and I don't know if there's a consensus on a best version either. It's essential for me, as well, but I don't know if it's one I would point a new member to right off the bat to get them into live Floyd. In a head to head it lost to the Earls Court show I picked, in my mind anyway. Also a killer performance, great sound, and less audience. Also, same songs.

    Feel free to talk me out of that though. i like a debate when it's about stuff like this. Haha

    Thanks! Yeah, it can be daunting for sure. Your '77 picks are first class I think, btw.

    Alas, his stupid behavior is now a historical fact
    Bummer that you were being distracted so much, but still cool that you were there. Pretty special show in the band's history.

    In trouble don't get confused-
    That's the main challenge!

    Yes! One of the shows I was listening to yesterday. I am researching the March 12th show in Montreal and Nick's work was also noted as being remarkable, although he was referred to as Rick Wright, the drummer..

    It's mentioned that this Newport SBD was edited for the broadcast on his video version here http://yeeshkul.com/forum/showthread...(Multicam-SBD)
    I have also noticed that this audio capture does have a couple dropouts (during Wide River to Cross and Forever Young, If I remember correctly). I am not sure if that was inherited from the actual broadcast though.
    If those dropouts set off anyone else's OCD like they did mine, then there is this one from DIME that does not have them (although it is still the edited SBD) http://yeeshkul.com/forum/showthread...ource-(tamlyn)

    Overall, many thanks, Lennyif, for your efforts. This has definitely helped me to identify a few gaps that I had in my collection. Using this in combination with nipote's lists and the best sources list has been great! I had an idea and was trying to put something together for personal use recently to combine them. I pulled all showthread urls from nipote's list (I've only started with PF audio so far) and also from the best sources page postings. I then compared those url's to identify on nipote's lists which specific releases were mentioned on the best sources. It's not perfect, but identifying them all by the Showthread ID's seems to work pretty well!

    My first two live Floyd tapes were 9/17/69 & 3/11/73, both of which are still favorites after listening to hundreds of hours of live Pink Floyd. To me, the audience on 3/11/73 enhances the performance. When the guy yells at the climax of Eugene I can practically hear his brain melting. He was a changed man! As was I, listening in a mere 5 or 6 years later. And now, nearly 50 years later, and even knowing it is coming, I still get a thrill from it. And trust me, my first versions of these tapes were CRAP, but I could still listen through to the amazing music.

    I would also comment that the March tour was a magical sweet spot, where the band was fully matured with their masterpiece recorded, but had yet to understand that they were soon to be megastars (as a band anyway). They really had not yet gotten just how well they had "made it." By May, their success was clear. To me, the performances have a different character. I feel that spring tour is critical. Wish we had tapes of every show. How that did not happen, I cannot understand.
