1972, at the “unfinished madness” tour, United Kingdom → Japan → America and Floyd has continued to tour, sporadically but appeared in European festival in May, the board, the row in Fes appeared just before the May 18th Berlin performances cracked You are recorded in high-quality stereo recording audience. First, it is almost the sound quality, such as the sound board recording from being surprised. Although there is a slight hiss, very has been recorded on-sound, there is no doubt that as the microphone recording of the time is one of the highest peak. In this sound, as to listen the “madness” of this time, it would be nothing other than the impact to those of not yet listened fan. (However Us And 15 seconds of Them (2: 45-3: to. 00), there is a cut of tape change, has been supplemented from the same day of another take) of the full tension played in dynamic also really nice 1972 mid-term There is no doubt that it is the best sample of “madness”.

The disadvantage of this high-quality take is that the trouble of sound due to the deficiency, the master on the second section is in several places. Very disappointing thing is that five minutes into the first half of One Of These Days is missing from the master, but this is best connect with another recording tape that was recorded on the same day. (This part of the sound quality is not good.) 6:28 where the cut enters in Eugene is Yes to connect naturally. There are intermittent sound is interrupted place between the four minutes of tuning time, but this is due to the master. Of Echoes 5: 18-6: There are cut to 40, this is connect very well the quality another master (same day ones), you can enjoy without stress. In addition to Echoes also 0: 33,3: 50,11: 50,14: 33, etc. There is a problem of the sound by tape degradation or input excess, but also invoke besides it, and Echoes of the highest quality that extends to this 25 minutes in fact it said that the largest listening stations of this board, it is terrific version of all of Floyd fans absolutely must listen. Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun is ending is accrued, but here also connected well another recording tape the same day. In this way, it is not a perfect title, this time of the Floyd of performance that can be in contact with ultra-high sound quality that is comparable to the line recording is anyway masterpiece of a word. This is a great recording that you would like you to listen to all of Floyd collector. It is released in 300 limited edition of the press CD.

And recording the Berlin performance of May 1972. This performances, bad sound very sound quality from previous (recorder 1) but had been distributed, another source of very high-quality sound that has been discovered recently (recorder 2) is used in this panel. In addition, recorder 2 for some reason at the time of recording, “One Of These Days” five minutes at the beginning of, from No. 2 lyrics of “Echoes” to peripheral guitar solo, and the second half of “Set The Controls For The Hearts Of The Sun” Although missing gone, the patch has been hit from the recorder 1 When this release. The difference between the sound quality has been evident, this would be it deals not measures cease. One of the fans who actually watch this performance is said, “Waters had been frustrated throughout,” but such a state can not hear about as far as to listen to the sound. Rather, they were trained in the first primary North American tour “Dark Sise Of The Moon”, such as increased the Enjukumi “Echoes”, I enjoy playing and fulfilling. It must-have board.


1972年、「未完成狂気」ツアーにて、イギリス→日本→アメリカとツアーを続けてきたフロイドは、5月に単発的にヨーロッパのフェスティバルに出演しますが、本盤は、フェス出演直前に行われた5月18日ベルリン公演を高音質のステレオ・オーディエンス録音で収録しています。まず、驚かされるのは殆どサウンドボード録音のようなその音質です。若干のヒスはあるものの、非常にオンな音で収録されており、当時のマイク録音としては最高峰なものであることは間違いありません。この音で、この時期の「狂気」を聴けるとは、未聴のファンにとっては衝撃以外なにものでもないでしょう。(ただしUs And Themの15秒間(2:45-3:00)、テープチェンジのカットがあり、同日のもうひとつのテイクから補っています。)ダイナミックで緊張感溢れる演奏も実に素晴らしく1972年中期の「狂気」の最良のサンプルであることは間違いありません。

今回の高音質テイクの欠点は、第二部に欠損やマスターに起因する音のトラブルが何箇所かあることです。大変残念なことはOne Of These Daysの前半5分がマスターから欠落している点ですが、これは同日録音されたもう一つの録音テープで繋いであります。(この部分の音質は良くありません。)Eugeneの6:28でカットが入るところは自然に繋げてあります。4分間のチューニングタイムの間に断続的に音が途切れる箇所がありますが、これはマスターに起因するものです。Echoesの5:18-6:40にもカットがありますが、これは良質な別マスター(同日のもの)を大変うまく繋いでおり、ストレスなく楽しむことができます。ほかにもEchoesの0:33、3:50、11:50、14:33などにテープ劣化または入力過剰による音の問題がありますが、それを差し置いても、この25分に及ぶ最高音質のEchoesは実は本盤の最大の聴き所と言え、全てのフロイド・ファン絶対必聴の凄まじいヴァージョンです。Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sunはエンディングが未収ですが、ここも同日別録音テープをうまくつなげています。このように、完璧なタイトルではありませんが、ライン録音に匹敵する超高音質で接することの出来るこの時期のフロイドのパフォーマンスはとにかく圧巻のひとことです。全てのフロイド・コレクターに聴いて頂きたい素晴らしい録音です。300枚限定のプレスCDにてリリースです。

★beatleg誌 vol.69(2006年4月号)のレビュー要約です。ご参考まで。

1972年5月のBerlin公演を収録。本公演は、以前から非常に音質の悪い音源(recorder 1)が流通していたが、最近に発見された非常に高音質の別音源(recorder 2)が本盤に使用されている。なお、recorder 2は録音時の何らかの理由で、「One Of These Days」の冒頭5分、「Echoes」の2番の歌詞からギターソロ周辺まで、そして「Set The Controls For The Hearts Of The Sun」後半が欠落してしまっているが、今回のリリースに当たってrecorder 1からパッチが当てられている。その音質の差は歴然としているが、これはやむお得ない措置だろう。本公演を実際に観たファンの一人は「Watersが終始イライラしていた」と語っているが、音を聴く限りではそうした様子は伺えない。むしろ、第一次北米ツアーで鍛えられた「Dark Sise Of The Moon」、円熟味を増した「Echoes」など、充実した演奏を楽しめる。必携盤。
