  1. I have listened to snippets of it but, you know, it’s a poor MP3 sample and it does not reflect the real thing. How does it sound? Is it worth? One of the songs (can’t remember which one), differently from the rest, contains a lot of tape hiss (?), unfortunately. Animals is my favorite PF and I’m planning on ordering it.

      Overall, it sounds quite nice, but as a soundboard, some may find it slightly disappointing, as the very best audience recordings from the 1977 tour, such as Oakland (May 5th), Boston (June 27th), Ft. Worth, Texas (May 1st), etc. are certainly a little bit superior, but those are rather tough to beat. I would still say that it’s considerably above average, and, as you likely already realize, SBD’s of live Floyd shows are much less common than they are for other legendary artists such as Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, etc.

      I forgot to mention that, unlike most CD’s in general, & unlike most CD’s released by Sigma in particular, it’s one of those CD’s on which you very much have to crank up the volume. I don’t know much about audio engineering, but it’s too bad that there are some CD’s that weren’t normalized to have a volume level consistent with the great majority of (other) CD’s, such that a listener has to fiddle around with the volume controls so often.

    I got the Floyd Sigma 224 (Berlin 1977) a couple days ago, and it’s great to have live “Animals” in SBD. Anybody else have any thoughts or comments about it? Nick Mason’s drum work sounds strangely similar to the clops of horses’ hooves. Anybody notice that?

  3. Careful Axeman Eugene

    That Floyd Sigma 224 (Berlin 1977) (approx. 50:48 total playing time) sure sounds like a very tasty, delicious, scrumptious **upgrade** over the previous old releases…I can’t wait for it.

    Thanks very much for all the excellent work you always do, Wgpsec.
