5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Pink Floyd concert video
Pink Floyd's second concert video entitled Delicate Sound of Thunder was released in June of 1989(the satellite album was released in November of 1988). The album(and video) was recorded and filmed over five nights at the Nassau Coliseum in New York in August of 1988(the end of the regular Momentary Lapse tour '87-'88 and directed by video director Wayne Isham(Bon Jovi,...

1.0 out of 5 stars Probably the Worst Musical Concert To Date
This tape is just pathetic! The special effects are great live, but they don't seem very interesting on the tv...sorta like watching fireworks on tv. The slow motion footage, which is throughout the video, is very distracting. I found myself turning the tv off and just listening through the stereo at times. And the Floyd were a foursome once. Well, whatever your view...

This review is from: Delicate Sound-Live [Import] (VHS Tape)
Pink Floyd's second concert video entitled Delicate Sound of Thunder was released in June of 1989(the satellite album was released in November of 1988). The album(and video) was recorded and filmed over five nights at the Nassau Coliseum in New York in August of 1988(the end of the regular Momentary Lapse tour '87-'88 and directed by video director Wayne Isham(Bon Jovi, Rolling Stones, Queensryche, etc.). The band would tour Europe again in 1989/90 in support of Delicate Sound with the tour called Another Lapse). The band first attempted to record a live album and video in November of 1987 in Atlanta but the band were not up to par. Subsequently, they tried again in the summer of 1988. As a result, a great live album and video. The album has superb live versions of On The Turning Away and One of These Days. The fans' much reviled track The Dogs of War is superior to its studio counterpart with Nick Mason playing drums this time and Rick Wright playing on keyboards like he did in the old days(the two are the only two original Floyd members who did every tour) and of course David Gilmour's vocals and superb guitar work. The film on this track is breath taking with the German Shepard dogs running with the yellow eyes as if they were possessed by Satan himself. Other standouts are Wish You Were Here and Learning To Fly. Some tracks are slightly edited like Shine on You Crazy Diamond and Comfortably Numb. The video features material not on the album like Signs Of Life, On the Run, a spellbinding The Great Gig in the Sky and of course the superb One Slip. Money was available on the US video version of Delicate Sound but not the UK edition. This video is unfortunately now out-of-print. The video did well for a live concert video as it went Multi-Platinum and is a great document of Floyd's reunion tour. I first got this video in January of 1993 and went through two copies and am holding on to them until this DVD is released. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars DST-Live, Dec 7 2011
This review is from: Delicate Sound-Live [Import] (VHS Tape)
I agree with all the positive reviews on this concert tape. I'd add the extended guitar solo at the end of Comfortably Numb is unique to this recording and not the same as it's CD sister audio release under the same title....... excellent Floyd! I'd love to see this remastered on DVD or (Blue-ray).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best !!!, Feb. 22 2004

This is the best live concert of Pink Floyd, though Waters is not here! Liked "The Wall" Berlin Concert of Roger Waters too, but that was different...various artists, something was missing...like the original line up :o(
Anyway, availability of a DVD of this Concert is rare, however I have a imported VCD, quality is much better than VHS. You should collect this concert in some formats...VHS/DVD or VCD!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want the DVD!!!!, Jan. 7 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Delicate Sound-Live [Import] (VHS Tape)
I saw this video on tape, but have lost it. I can't believe
that it's not on DVD by now! What's the problem?!
Obviously others want it too. I clicked on the, "send me an
e-mail when it's available in DVD" link under the DVD search I did at this sight an it's supposed to be a vote also. Let's all
vote and maybe then we can have the DVD after about 2 million
people want it! I don't think that's a high number at all
considering the emaculate detail in the video and the way
the music fits in. I too loved the clip of the guy mouthing,
"Oh my God, it's a %#@$ing Pig!' Too much!
Surely at least a couple million would want this.
This is the best tape I've ever seen.. DVD please!

I have seen this concert with LaserDisc. Both sound and visual effect were perfect. There are some songs only exist in the LaserDisc, but not the CD. Sony, please make the DVD.

If for no other reason, the dancing girls are a great show! They're teased into brief glimpses throughout and occasionally get to really shine for the folks. You'll have to watch it many times to see them in all thier moments. Love the way they swim. Gilmore and pals wonderful of course. The sax guy alone worth the ticket. There is a lot of 'worth the ticket' moments in this show. Not just a concert, a movie. Well done.
