A Generation’s Legacy [Sigma 63, 3CD]
Live at the Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY; June 17, 1975. Very good audience recording.
According to collectorsmusicreviews.com, this comes from the same tape utlized on Nassau 1975 Day 2 (Sigma 43) but from the master cassette. The Sigma 43 release was considered an upgrade over Godfather’s release of Wishes, Echoes, And Desires, which was marred by digital clicks in the first song and at points on Disc Two. “Sigma 43 maintains the excellent sound quality of the Godfather yet does not have any flaws on the tape whatsoever and can be considered definitive at this point.”
And over at the fan site, pf-roio.de, there’s a post saying that the Boston Gardens show on June 18, 1975 (from Triangle Records) “is the definitive 1975 show, a better performance”. [Click here for a Dan Lampinski recording of the show.]
Also of note is John Rockwell’s review of the Uniondale show in the New York Times, where the late Rick Wright (who passed away in September 2008) got a bit of spotlight:
Pink Floyd can boogie, almost, what with the crunching rhythm section of Rogers Waters (bass guitar) and Nicky Mason (drums), plus a fervent saxophone player and two black women singers. And the group’s songs have an unusually suggestive poetic quality - great literature, even, in the context of the flatulent pseudo-mythology of so many recent space rock lyrics - and the singing isn’t half bad at all, especially that of Dave Gilmour, the lead guitarist.
But the core of the act remains the instrumentals, and the core of those instrumentals is Rick Wright, the keyboard player. Mr. Wright makes music of a coloristic richness that is more entrancing that almost any of his competition that one can think of, and yet his flights say firmly grounded in lucidity and rhythmic directness. And for all the others’ gifts on their own, they do their best work in support of Mr. Wright.
