The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor.

The tape begins with a short introduction by Waters and the mc in German before “Astronomy Domine,” the normal set opener that spring. “Careful With That Axe, Eugene” is introduced as “off of our last LP Ummagumma.” One some dates in late 1969 this was segued with “Green Is The Colour,” but that was dropped for the UK and German dates in early 1970. This is a cleaned up version of the same tape source used for the older release The Injustice Of A Kaleidoscope Of Sound (Hypedup HY1002-A/B).
