For anybody interested - new 'Pledge' edition of Le Bataclan, Paris, Jan 29, ‘72 'reunion'.

Limited Edition, Coloured 180g Vinyl 2LP (One Red, One Blue), in a hand numbered gatefold sleeve.
"Presented here, together with background notes, bonus DVD and two rare tracks culled from a rehearsal held in London shortly before the gig."

Not sure how enticing that all sounds. Will it be speed-corrected? Wasn't there problems with the speed of some editions.
Anyway - just putting it out there.

Was there really a rehearsal in London? Weren't PBE and Candy on the long soundcheck, available on various tapes in the 80s or 90s?

Isn't this a vinyl re-gurgitating of this:

It had the extras, and so suggests that the LP might be speed corrected, too.

I listened to this gig properly for the first time. I really enjoyed it. Those versions of Mirror, Waiting, Black Angel. They may be the best post-Cale-VU live versions of those songs I've ever heard. They really work.

I'm intrigued as to how official this Pledgemusic version is - given that all the releases of this gig ever have been on bootleg/grey labels like Alchemy/keyhole

That Amazon link says it's on "TTW" - this release doesn't appear on Discogs, nor does a label called TTW, so hard to tell

Wow, TONS of bootleg stuff in the "Customers Also Bought These Albums" section for me!

I downloaded a copy of this album with the extras. It sounded slow to me. At least all the tracks up until 'Parties'.
