Sigma have two interesting Pink Floyd titles coming out. Roger Waters Defining Moment (Sigma 68) is a 2CD release with the May 12th, 2011 O2 show with special guests David Gilmour and Nick Mason. This has, according to the label, “absolutely perfect sound.”
Pink Floyd Osaka 1971 (Sigma 67) documents the August 9th, 1971 show from Osaka, Japan.
Rainbow Guillotine (Rising Arrow-045) is a four CD set with two sources for the October 27th, 1977 Paris show.
For what It’s worth, I received ‘Truly Stunning Evening’ on the LEM-label, last week. It is a 4-Cdr set with both the 12th of May and the 15th of May show. It’s almost for sure that they used the same tape for the Sigma, and to my ears that is à truly fantastic Audience recording! Therefore I have the Sigma on order; this a great show to own on silver, of course! Didn’t get to a really good listen yet, but from the first 3 listens, I can tell that the band is in great spirit, with the knowledge of what is to come…
Yes, Defining Moment should be reviewed in a couple of days.
Is DEFINING MOMENT being reviewed here?
Yes – It was about time that some pressed silver label instead of just a pro-CD-R label finally released a live Wall show from the Roger Waters 2010-11 tour. And quite a cool bonus for Sigma to choose the one particular show that features Gilmour & Mason, although it’s only for a couple tracks. The Osaka 1971 show should also probably be another excellent/great selection as well, as the old version by the Zeus label is, although not poor or terrible, is only of fair/decent sound quality – it doesn’t sound very clear, and thus could be upgraded considerably in order to sound significantly more enjoyable. I’ve always liked the performance. And Sigma claims that both their #67 & #68 are from the original masters, and #68 is described as having “TRULY AMAZING/PERFECT SOUND”. Furthermore, the front cover artwork for both of these newest Sigma titles looks impressive. Very exciting Floyd-related boot news. Thanks.
