HRV's "Pink Floyd A Venezia" was one of my first video projects and I've learned a lot since then. I recently decided to start the project from scratch using the same video source which I thought I could improve on. And I believe I did. The audio on the original release was mono so the audio is the big upgrade here. MOB gave a ringing endorsement for the "Venetia" CD and has the following to say about it...
"The audio files you downloaded for Venice are from a bootleg called "Venetia" (Ultimate Sound US 62/63). All I can say is that it's the best audio version I heard of the Venice concert. It's superb stereo and even better than the FM master I used for my version. Maybe it's pre-FM, or very clean FM, or hifi stereo TV capture, I don't know, but it's he best to use for synching with your video."
So here you have it. The AMLOR tour was not my favorite but I'm sure that many people will enjoy this upgrade.
