"That was a good gig last night : it's not often you hear "The Trees" by Rush played in a small pub in Bristol (and very well too). Mr Gilmour himself would have liked the guitar sound on Comfortably Numb.
My only criticism is that I would have liked to hear more of Crazy Diamond.
Nice bass playing, drumming and we had multi-tasking on keys and guitar from the male lead vocalist.""
