Format: Audio CD
Pink Floyd's first official multiple disc live album entitled Delicate Sound of Thunder was released in November of 1988 (the satellite video was released in June of 1989).
Up until the release of this live album, Pink Floyd only had available the half-live/half-studio album Ummagumma which was in 1969. Then they did record shows over the years for British radio and also their shows at Wembley Arena in 1974 and The Wall at Earls Court in London in 1980/81 but those shows remained unreleased for many years (the Wembley shows would emerge as bonus discs on The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here re-releases and the Earls Court Wall shows emerged on the live Is There Anybody Out There? album in 2000). When Pink Floyd (now singer/guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and the late keyboard player Rick Wright) re-convened without Roger Waters in 1987 and released A Momentary Lapse of Reason, the band went on tour and recorded shows in its first leg but the band were not too happy with the performances so they decided to try again and record (and film) their five night stand at the Nassau Coliseum in New York in August of 1988 (the end of the regular Momentary Lapse tour '87-'88. The band would tour Europe again in 1989/90 in support of Delicate Sound with the tour called Another Lapse). The results were excellent, as I found out when I first acquired the cassette in November of 1988 and was also the very first CD my father would buy for yours truly whilst upgrading my Floyd canon to CD in 1991.

The first live album of the post Roger Waters Pink Floyd line up delivers with a vengeance!
A must have for Pink Floyd fans, and a casual listener.
This album has the best performance of Comfortably Numb ever recorded.
My only hope is that one day a Blu-Ray is released of this incredible show!

Went to a concert for this tour. The album brings it all back. Lovely sound and voice. I could listen to it over and over. Shine On, On the Turning Away, One of These Days. But the absolute winner- The best Comfortably Numb live I've ever heard!

Recorded during the Momentary Lapse Of Reason tour in the mid 1980s, it is my favorite of the "Live" Pink Floyd releases. Contains what is for me the ultimate version of Comfortably Numb. Worth the purchase for that alone. Double CD.

Pink Floyd have been a favorite of mine for some time. I wasn't really in to their music until late in their career, I remember seeing a PF poster on my cousins wall when I was probably 15 or 16. I thought at the time, I can't believe he listens to that crap, not knowing anything about the band or their sound, I was an AM radio junkie at the time, of course, I also thought that about Alice Cooper and I have all of his stuff, anyway that was a long time ago and I have come to my senses. If you dig the Floyd you should definitely get this remastered collection!!!

This in-concert material from Pink Floyd's 1988 tour to promote ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ was released in November of that year, surprisingly the band’s first ‘official’ (non-bootleg) live-in-concert material available to fans since ‘Ummagumma’ in 1969.

These concerts were, of course, without Roger Waters who had acrimoniously split from the band following ‘The Final Cut’ and initiated legal proceedings to prevent the three remaining members using the Pink Floyd name. Having gained a royalty agreement and all rights to ‘The Wall’, Waters settled the action and went his own way.

TDSoT is a good album, but IMO eclipsed by ‘The Pulse’ released in 1995 from the ‘Division Bell’ tour where the resurrected Waters-free band’s mojo was working in overdrive. As you might expect, TDSoT majors on material from the new AMLoR album, with six tracks featured. The remaining material is classic Floyd: Crazy Diamond & WYWH, a storming rendition of ‘One of these Days’ from Meddle, three tracks from DSotM (but not the work performed in its entirety as on ‘The Pulse’), and all three of Gilmour’s modest contributions to The Wall: ‘Another Brick’, ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Run Like Hell’.

BTW there’s a film of the concert footage which includes more songs than the CD, notably an epic version of ‘The Great Gig in the Sky’ which is worth seeking out if you’ve never seen it.

To sum up: if you’re a PF fan then you’ll probably like this album, especially if you’re a fan of the later, Gilmour-led era. In a choice between TDSoT and ‘The Pulse’, my vote would go to the later album which has the edge.

Gives good memories of seeing the Floyd in auckland-should include "welcome to the machine" among a few others though.

My favorite Pink Floyd album.

In fact,my favorite album.

Played it so many times over the years that I have had to replace the CDs multiple times.

I have the VHS video tape of the concert. Wish they remastered it on DVD.
