    Which do you venerable Floyd dudesters prefer :

    DSOT or Pulse ?

    Reason being I have the Wall Live 81 (Excellent 10/10) & Rogers Live in the Flesh (Hmmmm 7/10) and was wondering which of the 2 are a better purchase in your ops ?

    Cheers.

    Tough one there mate....Both albums are just so good , i couldn't have one without the other.
    You get standout euphoric moments like 'On The Turning Away' & 'Dogs Of War' on Delicate, & a sublime 'Comfortably numb' & spine tingling 'Sorrow' (Gilmour really rips it on the opening stance on Pulse:smashin: good on Delicate too ) plus a near faultless performance of Dark Side Of The Moon on CD2 from Pulse.

    I suppose at a stab & if i had to choose, i'd probably go for Pulse, although i'd be crying into my beer that i'd miss out on- 'On The Turning Away' & 'Dogs Of War' from Delicate.

    They both never leave my CD pile under the rack (most used)

    I thought 'In The Flesh' was really good with Waters.
    Standout for me was 'Dogs' & 'Welcome To The Machine'

    Haven't yet got The Wall Live:rolleyes:

    It is Adz, don’t get me wrong a 7/10 mark from me is quite good, in fact that should probably be ramped up to an 8 for “Shine on you crazy diamond ” alone, but Im comparing it directly to Wall 81 Live as a live album, where I think the production is better and some of the tracks I prefer like “Run Like Hell” & “Young Lust” more down to preference than one being "better", I also prefer the stuff from the Wall album on Wall Live, for example the bass seems unbelievable on the Wall tracks, a little lacking on the Flesh album in comparison, but then Wall live does not have “Shine on” hotdamn : choice choices, hence my request on the live albums these dudes have done.

    Don’t worry about not having the Wall Live dude, I aint got DSOT or Pulse !! :rolleyes:

    The DVD for live in the flesh is excellent in sound terms BTW, What did you reckon about “Echoes” then ?

    'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' is awesome on Pulse.
    The band Waters assembled for 'In The Flesh' were very good.
    The keyboard player / singer / guitarist John Carin is extremely talented & has played with Floyd on Delicate & Pulse & other post Waters albums.
    Doyle Bramhall II is no slouch on the guitar & Snowy White doesn't even break sweat!:D
    I look at the 'In The Flesh' DVD as a time marker until the Delicate or Pulse releases, although 'Flesh' is a great concert in itself.

    'Echoes' is good for collecting a varied batch of Floyd songs.
    But, it cannot transmit the raw power & verve & showmanship of a Live Floyd album. I think Floyd are at their best when they are Live, plus you get awesome visual effects too. (Video)

    Proof of this is listen to studio versions of (for example)
    Sorrow, On The Turning Away & Dogs Of War.

    They are obliterated by the Live versions.

    Probably why my Live albums are spun more than the studio based stuff.....

    Adz we seem to be speaking the same language here, ie that the Live Floyd stuff obliterates the studio albums (with the possible exception of the studio Wall on Vinyl, lordy lord that is really special) that’s what I feel exactly as well. Again hence querying the 2 above, Nice one dude.

    Hope you enjoy whichever CD you go for.

    It's Floyd at their flamboyant best LIVE

    When & If you get either of them, let me know what you thought.

    I hate to tell you this, but I read Gilmours recent statements that the masters for DSOT have gone, and VHS is the only media that it will ever see. Pulse, on the other hand, has good news and has been almost out at leat twice.... so keep watching the skies...:mad:
