Ok anyone know how I can get a hold of a video of the FULL version of Sorrow from P.U.L.S.E ?
BOTH the official DVD AND the VHS from 1995 are missing about 2 minutes of the performance. I know this as I have an audio bootleg from the show and @ the 8:24 mark they snip two minutes off (and if anyone has head it they'll know it's absolutely incredible and beggars belief that the band cut it!) and I've never been able to get a VIDEO of this.
Comfortably Numb's second solo is also heavily edited on the official release (but in its case it's for the better as Gilmour does seem to lose his way somewhat on that)
If anyone is interested I can try and send you the FULL audio
yeah the pulse version of sorrow is the complete version on pulse as its the same on the ppv rip of the show that is not edited like dvd and is complete with missing min and a half of comfortably numb on ppv compared to dvd release and album but sorrow is full.
A friend has just supplied me with the orginal New Years Eve 1994 BBC 1 showing of P.U.L.S.E. and there it was, the version of Sorrow I have on the bootleg from the 20th October show. What's interesting is that it is only a matter of about 20 seconds longer than the official DVD/VHS but there is about two minutes of the track that sounds completely different to the P.U.L.S.E. version. Both versions are identical until around about the 8:45 mark and then go off in wildly different directions.
So my next question would be what is going on?. Did the version of Sorrow that appeared on the official release get recorded on another night altogether? (I know the album was recorded over the entire tour but the VHS/DVD was supposed to be shot on that one night) OR was the official release overdubbed (and if so WHY since the genuine(?) performance is better). Because my bootleg and the BBC transmission are identical, wheras the released version sounds very different in the later stages
