Pink Floyd - Welcome to the Machine

This is a Pink Floyd show from 1977, it's here thanks to our friend Anonymous that also shared with us Oakland 1977 and a few others.

Pink Floyd - Welcome to the Machine
TSP-CD-061 The Swingin' Pig Records
02 Jul 1977, New York.  
Recorded live in concert at Madison Square Garden
EX+ Audience Recording

1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1-5
2. Welcome To The Machine
3. Have A Cigar
4. Wish You Were Here
5. Shine On You Crazy Diamond 6-9

Excellent WYWH set from '77.  
Of all the shows I've heard from that tour, this set is 2nd only to Oakland.  
Excellent guitar work as always, but damn, Rick Wright's performance is just brilliant here. Sadly it's only the 2nd half of the show, but it's so awesome it doesn't even matter.  
There are boots of the entire concert available, and I'd always wondered why the sound for the 1st half of the show was so bad . . . with a little digging I found that the tapers moved down closer to the stage for the 2nd set.  
That explains why this is so much more clear.  
The recording is mono, but crystal clear, and one of my favorites of all time.  
Props to the tapers on this one, whoever you are.

This is a classic bootleg. If you don't own it already, you should grab it straight away.
