★beatleg誌 vol.96(2008年7月号)のレビュー要約です。ご参考まで。

1975年北米ツアーから、New Jersey公演を収録。本公演を収録したCDは『Jersey Not Mother (STTP)』としてすでに世に出ているが、今回のリリースに際して、マスターテープをダイレクトにデジタル化した音源が使用されている。そのため、音質が飛躍的に向上しているのはもちろんのこと、曲間のMCなども収録されている点で、前述の既発盤を一蹴する内容となっている。
この1975年のツアーは、1974年の英国ツアーの延長線上にあるもので、第一部には新曲、そして第二部には「Dark Side Of The Moon」、そしてアンコールには「Echoes」という構成。ただし、第一部の新曲のうち、「Shine On You Crazy Diamond」は分断され、1975年の北米ツアーで初披露となった新曲「Have A Cigar」が挟み込まれるアレンジとなった。また1974年の演奏が、全体的に浮遊感漂う古き良きFloydのサウンドだったのに対し、この1975年の演奏はハードロック・スタイルへと変貌している。さらに、喉を痛めて終始ダミ声で歌うGilmourのボーカルも1975年の特徴ということができる。200枚限定のファクトリープレスでのリリースも非常に嬉しい。
