4 stars The first time that I watched parts of this video was in late November of 1994. I was almost asleep (I had to work the next day), when at 11 P.M. one of my brothers called me by the phone saying: "Hey, a Pink Floyd`s concert is being broadcasted now in the T.V. !" . I said thanks to him, and I prepared quickly a Videocassette to record it. Unfortunately, I only recorded the Encores of this concert. But my brother bought the VHS of this concert when it was released in mid 1995. So, I went to his house to see it in his "home theatre" Hi-Fi system. For my surprise, parts of the concert were again broadcasted in another T.V. channel in late 1997. There are some differences between the VHS and CD versions of "P-U-L-S-E": they didn`t include in the CD the songs "Take It Back" and "One of These Days", but they included in the CD "Astronomy Domine", "What Do You Want from Me", "Hey You" and "A Great Day for Freedom". I think that there were commercial reasons to release some different songs in the different formats, as the Pink Floyd`s fans would like to have all the songs. So, IMO, it was more like a marketing trick. Another difference is that the CD, cassette and L.P. versions of "P-U-L-S-E" have songs recorded in different venues, while the video was filmed in Earls Court in London in 20- October-1994.I was a bit disappointed that they didn`t include "Take It Back" in the CD version, but I was glad to see that they included it in the video.The video has very good sound and images, even if David Gilmour and the rest of the band obviously looked "older".The live performance of "The Dark Side of the Moon" is very interesting and well played. "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" has images of a young man (maybe representing Syd Barret) and his life as a musician.In "Keep Talking", David Gilmour appears playing the "Talk Box" while playing the guitar solos."High Hopes" has nostalgic images of youth. All these images were presented in the circular screen in the back of the stage.I remember that this video was also released in the Laser Disc format. I recently saw in the Internet a DVD version of this video, but some fans say that this is in fact a bootleg version, and that the band is going to release the official DVD version of this video in the next months.
