When compared to Remember that Night, Live in Gdańsk, which was the last performance of that tour, featured a band that appeared to me to be fatigued, road-worn, possibly a little played out. This appearance is the direct opposite: Steve Distanislao is back to smiling and and Guy Pratt is back to clowning. Did I mention that Gilmour plays a little percussion on one song?
Thanks so much for the thorough reply Bob!
I will definitely have to pick-up Live at Pompeii.
The first few times through I'll be listening alone so I can avaoid having to say, "I've got something in my eye."
