4 stars Recorded live during Roger's recent tour of the U.S. Songs selected in the set include a nice cross section of output from PINK FLOYD and his solo career. This superbly crafted live set includes loads of killer instrumentation. with guitars by Andy Fairweather Low, Snowy White and Doyle Bramhall II with bass and vocals by Roger Drums by Graham Bond, keyboards by Andy Wallace and Jon Carin. Roger also brought along a stunning female trio accompanists (PP Arnold, Katie Kissoon and Susannah Melvoin). Although the whole 2 CD set is a highlight in itself. I was totally blown away by his rendition of "Set The Controls For The Heart If The Sun" and "The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range". As you would expect all the original sound effects and sound bites used give this set a real "WATERS/FLOYD" feel. "The Dark Side Of The Moon" is split into 2 sections with a number of WATERS's solo songs In between to end the set. After a stunning version of "Comfortably Numb" as an encore, Rogers ends the concert with the unreleased "Each Small Candle" a poem written by a South American torture victim to which he put to music.
