Roger: Thank You
Shine On You Crazy Diamond I-X.
Shine On... starts with a very meandering keyboard intro. Not as full
sounding as on 1975 shows --or the WYWH album. Rick just sounds like he
is noodling away at one keyboard, whereas more fuller versions have Rick
layering the keyboards creating a more symphonic atmosphere. Dave starts
the intro to Syd's Theme and the rest of the song essentially progresses
like the finished LP version, except: there is no saxophone solo during
Part V, part V segues right into Part VI, Roger sings the alternate
lyric of: "Peel away too many years, and I'll be joining you there" in
Part VII, during the song's coda, Rick plays a little medley of various
Syd Barrett riffs. In order, they are: 1. See Emily Play ('Emily tries
but misunderstands'); 2. Arnold Layne ('Arnold Layne, has a strange
hobby') 3. Jugband Blues ('It's awfully considerate of you to think of
me here') and 4. See Emily Play again..
Raving and Drooling.
After Raving & Drooling ends, the band spends a few minutes tuning up.
The audience starts to get impatient and starts shouting indecipherably
at the stage.
Audience member: C'mon Roger
Roger: What do you want me to do?
Audience member shouts something indecipherable back.
Roger: We are here playing fucking music!
Audience erupts into cheers and applause.
Roger: All right now. This is ANOTHER NEW ONE! THEY'RE ALL NEW!
You Gotta Be Crazy begins.
The DSotM suite. Again nothing out of the ordinary here. A few
comments: 1. Time has the "Lying supine in the sunshine lyric"; 2. Roger
actually plays the bass intro to Money with no hangups; 3. There is no
dark side of the moon, really... is heard before the vocals are finished
The tape cuts right before the second verse of Us and Them, and right
before the beginning of Any Colour You Like. Also, just like You Gotta
Be Crazy, ACYL fades out right before the ending and fades into the
beginning of Brain Damage.
Roger: (mutters something I can't understand.)
