A pal of mine slipped me a copy of this bootleg as a present and it blew my mind. As many readers know, I'm a big fan of the Floyd, but I'd never heard this. It claims to be 29 tracks of home recordings made by Roger Waters. Some of these must be demos, but many sound like working mixes as the album was being created, as there are Dave Gilmour guitar solos and contributions from Bob Ezrin that wouldn't have been on home demos! I gather it's a working sequence made during the recording process to assess how the flow would work. An amazing glimpse into the making of The Wall.
