Pink Floyd - Pulse (disc 1): Wikipedia Album Entry
Pulse (stylized as P•U•L•S•E) is a live double CD by Pink Floyd, released on May 29, 1995 in the UK and on June 6, 1995 in the US, containing songs from their albums The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall, A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and The Division Bell.
The album was recorded during the band's Division Bell tour in 1994, specifically the UK and European leg, which ran from July to October 1994.
The album includes a complete live version of The Dark Side of the Moon and features a booklet with many photos from performances on this tour. It also features "Astronomy Domine", a Syd Barrett song not performed since the early 1970s, as a tribute to the original Pink Floyd guitarist.
Unlike Delicate Sound of Thunder, David Gilmour and producer James Guthrie have stated that no parts of the songs were re-recorded in the studio. However, the band and Guthrie fixed songs that had bad notes (as heard on some bootlegs) by lifting solos and corrected vocal lines from other performances as the band recorded most of the European leg.
In the U.S., Pulse debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in June 1995 (briefly dethroning Hootie and the Blowfish's Cracked Rear View for a week before Hootie regained the #1 spot in the U.S.) and was soon certified Double Platinum on July 31, 1995.
The cassette issue had two bonus tracks: "One of These Days" and a 22 minute ambient piece that was played prior to the 1994 concerts.
The vinyl version comes in a four-LP box and includes "One of These Days" as well as a large version of the photo booklet. The video version (the only release of Pulse with an accurate running order) also featured the song "Take It Back," and was, in fact, the near complete performance from their October 20th show at Earl's Court, London.
On July 10, 2006, the Pulse DVD was released of the concert performed on October 20, 1994 at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London.
The original CD cover features a "eye-like" machine that has clock pieces inside, there is a planet in its center, and on the outside it shows evolution as it moves backwards. It starts in the sea, moves to the bacterias which evolve into fishes, then into egg type creatures, then into eggs that hatch birds, and birds follow the trail of an airplane. There are six pyramids in the desert, and in the bottom of the sea, you can observe a city in the shore.
