Pink Floyd is one of the most 'unofficially recorded' bands in history, most of its tours widely documented in terms of high quality recordings, be it from radio or audience sources, and fans have been collecting these for over 40 years now.  'Most' is the key word here.  Throughout these years, fans have desperately been searching for a high quality recording from the 1977 'Animals' tour. None of the shows from this tour was ever broadcast, and if Pink Floyd themselves have recorded some of them along the way, those must be surely kept under lock and key because no trace of such a recording has ever appeared anywhere, officially or not.

It is a well-known fact that this particular era in the band's life was not their favorite by far. Internal tensions were building up slowly, and although the 'Animals' album was a fine one in the end, it does however suggest that Roger Waters had already begun to take over as the main driving force behind the band. Shades of
things to come. This new album was the beginning of a new phase in the band's existence, one that eventually drove Gilmour, Wright and Mason away from the Waters-driven Floyd. Even years later, when David Gilmour had resurrected the Pink Floyd name for two great albums and tours, it came as no surprise to see that
none of the tracks from the 'Animals' album were ever included in the band's live sets.

Back in 1977, however, the band did embark on a long an grueling tour to promote the album. Being the consummate perfectionists they always were, the band gave all that they had to offer fantastic and memorable live performances. Sadly, only a handful of the audience recordings that were made over the course of this turned
out well, and those could only be granted a 'B' rating at best.

A short while ago, however, it was discovered that two young men from the Boston area, Dan Lampinski and Steve Hopkins, both known for the high quality of their audience recordings from the seventies, were at The Garden on June 27th, 1977, as Pink Floyd performed the 'Animals' show.  Dan and Steve always used the best
portable equipment available at the time, so both men achieved amazing results that night. After  laying dormant for many years, these recordings were recently made available, and both received rave reviews from the fans.

Now here's the twist. Both of these recordings are truly good, separately. Each has its own merits, but is limited to a rather narrow acoustic field. Since the two tapers were sitting on opposite sides of the Garden, the PRRP sound engineer decided to combine the two recordings to try and increase the acoustic field. What you
hold in your hands is the result of this meticulous and time-consuming process. This true labor of love was no waste of time by any means. The joining of the two recordings has not only widened the acoustic field, but also improved the overall sound and created a surprising stereo effect, which makes for a stunning listening
experience. Only you, the fans, will be able to pass an unbiased judgment on this, and despite the lame name of "Through Boredom and Pain I personally believe this combined remaster to be among the very best sounding 'Animals' tour recordings EVER. Enjoy !
