Favorite version of Echoes?
#1
I was originally going to set this up as a poll, but I imagine I'll get some pretty obscure versions as answers...so I left it "open" :P

What's your "favorite" version of Echoes? Album, live, pre-recording live, etc.

My choice goes to either Live At Pompeii (for the real "jam" feel) or Live at Gdansk (for both Rick's playing and the "historical" value).

The obligatory mention goes to The Return of the Son of Nothing (an early version). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FA-w4Px6DEY - Gotta give credit where it's due. They managed to ditch the song's (fantastic) opening verse and replace it with something equally as great :P

I always liked the Pompeii version for its raw feel.

The Pompeii version is raw.
The studio version is good.
The Live in Gdansk version is edgy/sharp/futuristic and it has an emotional value to it.
...our minds shot together.

Agree. If I need to pick one it is Pompeii.
Shocking. Positively shocking.

I like the version from the Wembley London show. It's a nice wrap-up to the Dark Side of the Moon. The Pompeii version is equally as awesome.

Pompeii, no doubt. That film has my favourite versions of six songs.

Oh yes, yes, yes. Also, the version from their 1971 BBC show. Holy crap, they stunned the audience.

Here's another version, recorded at Wembley in 1974 and broadcasted on BBC radio:

There's nothing like a Philharmonic in the background. Gdansk is my favorite by a long shot.
