Pink Floyd - Auditorium Theatre, Chicago, IL - 1972-04-28

I picked this one up, I believe, from T.U.B.E. a few weeks back. The show: a complete performance of Dark Side of the Moon recorded in Chicago about a year before the record was released.

The pre-mp3 lineage of this recording appears to be: BASF reel ->Sound Forge ->(-)16.7 cents speed correction ->gap repairs (hopefully all done) ->track splitup ->Flac via Flac Frontend, level 6, sectors aligned and verified. The original conversion was done by a cat named Doinker with further clean-up and remastering, reflected in this copy, by "Hogweeds"...

If you are a DSOTM head, you have to check this out. Highlights throughout, but please give a special listen to the jam where "Great Gig in the Sky" would be and the powerful version, without complete lyrics, of "Us and Them".
