It was back in 1988 at the legendary Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. Over five nights Delicate Sound of Thunder, the first live album of the English rock band Pink Floyd was recorded in August, before being mixed at Abbey Road Studios in September. The concerts were also filmed at the time by Wayne Isham. The Triple Platinum album contains some of the progressive rock group’s legendary hits like Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Wish You Were Here and Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) with David Gilmour on the guitars and as lead vocalist, Nick Mason on drums and percussion and Richard Wright on keyboards and back-up vocals and some lead vocals. The band, formed in 1967, had made a triumphant return in 1987 with the release of the legendary album, A Momentary Lapse of Reason.
