Has anybody heard the Pink Floyd 3CD “Oakland 1977” on the Shakuntala label? How does it compare to the very best and/or latest versions by Sigma? Thanks to anybody who could let us know.
I’ve now heard the Shakuntala version, and if it’s inferior at all to “Definitive Oakland 1977” (Sigma 190) or “Definitive Oakland” (Sigma 37), then it must be by only a very tiny bit, as I couldn’t notice any differences.
Thanks for that. Sigma’s “Chicago 1971” doesn’t give any description of its sound quality, which seems somewhat odd for an audience recording, and instead simply says “upgrade”. An upgrade of what? I don’t know of any previous releases on factory-pressed original silver, as the only previous releases that I know of were of the professional CD-R type.
