Prog Reviewer
4 stars This concert was filmed at Nassau Coliseum, New York , in August 1988, with some scenes filmed at the Palais Versailles, in Paris, in June 1988. It is a very good concert video with good sound and images.It is better than the live 2 CD set called "Delicate Sound of Thunder" which was released in 1988, because it is better to see the band playing in concert, not only listening to the audio. In comparison to the live TV broadcast "Pink Floyd in Venice", which was broadcasted by Eurovision and in my country (excerpts only broadcasted here) in July or August 1989, this VHS video is not only a "direct performance of every song" like the Venice concert. This "Delicate..." video has some "video effects", like "slow motion" added to several songs and also some "conceptual footage"" by Storm Thorgerson, which in some cases I don`t like, and in other cases, they really add "something extra" to the songs. But too many of these effects in some cases really made me feel like "drunk without using alcohol" in some moments while watching the video.I think that, IMO, it could have been better to leave the concert video without these effects. This video also has some differences in comparison to the live CD of the same name:"Shine on You Crazy Diamond" is a short instrumental version (similar to the Venice concert version);there are some songs which were not included in the CD, like:"Signs of Life", "On the Run", "The Great Gig in the Sky"and "One Slip"; other songs were omitted in the video, like "Yet Anothe Movie" adn "Round and Around". The performances of the songs in this concert video are very good. The additional musicians really added a lot of energy to the trio of Gilmour, Mason and Wright, particularly Gary Wallis´ and Scott Page`s playing are really very energetic. Page also played rhythm guitar (uncredited) in some songs.
