    Thanks...I wrote the above quickly whilst getting ready for work and didn't have time to find the particulars

    I still have the DSOT VHS tape from years ago. Wore it out in fact. In addition to the above, some of the songs are edited down - for example, I believe the middle section of "Learning to Fly" has been shorted in the live video.

    They cut a big chunk out of the ride out solo in Comfortably Numb. As I recall, on the album, it's something like 8 and a half minutes long, but on the video, it's only like 6 minutes. Another thing I always remember about that video is the montage of shots of Guy Pratt playing different basses during his Money solo.

    Folks who thought Mr. Pratt slapped up Echoes too much probably aren't going to be terribly happy when they hear his interpretation of Tony Levin's stick work on One Slip

    It's too bad, since this is all Post-Waters Floyd... that it couldn't be arranged to have the "Live 8" reunion from 2005 in there. That's really a glaring omission to an archive of later years Floyd.

    I actually like what he did with the One Slip solo.

    So did I, although based on a few recordings I heard on YT I don't think I have an issue with what he did on Echoes either.

    Yeah, I don't remember disagreeable about the Philly version of Echoes (which I haven't listened to in ages, admittedly).

    Now, what they did Money during that era, with the backup singers doing those "Woo-woo" riffs, and the drum fill after each couplet of the verse, I didn't care for. And I didn't care for Scott Page's need to grunt and moan his way through every solo he had, especially on Us And Them.

    Watching Pulse again, I still don't really like 'Take It Back' (generic stadium rock) or 'Coming Back To Life' (ploddy, Gilmour obviously likes it though) but for whatever reason 'Keep Talking' seems to have grown on me! Maybe it's just better live.
