just on title alone

They said they were going to "fix" Momentary, but I'm assuming it'll wait for a post-Roger Immersion box that probably won't happen.

Any clue on how well those first three Immersion boxes sold?

EZ Snappin, Monday, 12 November 2012 21:41 (five years ago) Permalink

no clue! but yeah i imagine de-80s-izing momentary lapse is wayyyyyyyyyy down on the list of floydian priorities. probably somewhere below gilmour cleaning his gutters.

let's get albini on it

nah I remember reading that they'd already redone the drums

Euler, Monday, 12 November 2012 21:47 (five years ago) Permalink

I remember hearing that too. Redone drums, and more of Wright's original piano and keyboard parts.

an immersion box of post-Syd, pre-Dark Side Floyd might be the immersion box I'd be most likely to buy. over the past few years, that's become my favorite era. and there are so many weird/wonderful little side-trips to explore.

My favourite era as well. Never would have expected it to be, at 13 I was all about DSOTM up to Final Cut and beyond.

'Separate Lives', by Phil Collins & Marilyn Manson (PaulTMA), Monday, 12 November 2012 22:12 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah, i mean part of it is just that that's the era i ignored for the longest time, so it's a bit fresher. but i think it also fits my current musical tastes a lot more too.

I had Atom Heart Mother on CD back then, never thought it'd end up by my favourite.

Never bothered with More and Obscured By Clouds back then, due to wrongly thinking the non-remastered CDs would be a waste of money.

Only just discovered the existance o fThe Man and The Journey a couple of days ago.

Looking forward to an "even more 80s-ized" momentary lapse remix album feat. Ford & Lopatin.

Remaster Schemaster..

I got a cheap box "By The Way", all the albums, remastered, I recommend this one.

I'm alright with "Piper" up to "Obscured", and "Animals", the rest I view with trepidation...

DSOTM I know well enough, WYWH I got played at too much..

The recent "best of" contained most if not all the obligatory tracks, I'd have chosen a completely different set apart from maybe three..

honorary degree...not quite as exciting as the image of Nick going back to class and studying for exams.

Good to see he wasn't just satisfied with the earned degree in Ruling that he got with the band.

http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/nick-mason-helps-save-london-music-store.html

Nick Mason has stepped in to help save Foote's, the historic London music shop where he bought his first ever drum kit. Nick, along with the store's sales director, Rob Wilson, are buying the business (which will now re-open in a new location at 41 Store Street, Bloomsbury, London) from the family who has owned it since the '30s.

"I was very disappointed when I heard that Foote's was going to close because it is one of my great memories of being a young, budding drummer was going to the original shop and buying my very first kit for £7.50," he told ITV news. "The thing about a drum shop is that it's the place where information gets passed around. You hear about new things; if you need a drum lesson, the best place to go is probably a drum shop and ask them for advice. There's a drum culture that is centered on drum shops."

A slight disappointment for budding drummers who think they'll be buying from Nick himself: "I think I will try not to be too hands on. I doubt I'll be much help really…I don't think I'm going to be behind the counter on a regular basis."

Mono or stereo?

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Thursday, 27 December 2012 01:04 (five years ago) Permalink

stereo

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 27 December 2012 01:08 (five years ago) Permalink

I love the stereo, especially for the WHOOSH-OOSH-OOSH-OOSH at the end of "Interstellar Overdrive."

But dude, you should totally hear the mono if you get a chance. Lots of different little differences.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Thursday, 27 December 2012 01:09 (five years ago) Permalink

Plus the mono version of Interstellar Overdrive kicks like an ornery mule.

But I'm glad you got the remaster HOTS, for it rules.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 27 December 2012 01:22 (five years ago) Permalink

mono eh

i shall investimagate

The mono version of Saucerful is also worth hearing if you can track it down. On the other version the stereo panning is so extreme it kills some of the record.

can anyone recommend a good bootleg of album outtakes from the '70-'75 era?

calstars, Saturday, 26 January 2013 03:00 (five years ago) Permalink

It's funny, but there hasn't been a lot of genuine unreleased or alternate material that has surfaced, some of it was trickling out slowly on the box sets. I could be wrong, but I'm guessing that there wasn't a lot of surplus music made.

If you haven't heard them, the most salient is the Zabriskie Point sessions material that was never used or released.

I see Fopp are knocking out the Immersion box sets

Mark G, Saturday, 26 January 2013 08:57 (five years ago) Permalink

The monitor mix of DSOTM is kinda good, the Apollo astronaut samples in Great Gig work well. It's funny not hearing that familiar sliiiide into Clare Torry's vocal at the start.

Outside of "Moonhead," "The Embryo," and the Zabriske Point stuff there isn't much more unless you're prepared to track down all 18 CDs of A Tree Full Of Secrets.

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 10:44 (five years ago) Permalink

I found my "Piper" 3CD boxset yesterday.

Mark G, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 10:56 (five years ago) Permalink

In the Wish You Were Here BBC documentary, Gilmour says that he and Waters disagreed over two songs that Gilmour wanted on the record but Waters did not. Anyone know more about this?

calstars, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:03 (five years ago) Permalink

I heard Grantchester Meadows in a shop yesterday, thought I was having a stroke.

MaresNest, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:49 (five years ago) Permalink

Answering my own question: the songs were 'Sheep' and 'Dogs.'

calstars, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 15:19 (five years ago) Permalink

i was listening to Piper on headphones recently and the super wide stereo mixing leaves decent chunks of some tracks completely silent on one side, it is most distracting, I wonder if Piper and Saucerful were both mixed Mono first/Stereo later like the Beatles.

MaresNest, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 16:11 (five years ago) Permalink

Pretty sure Piper was; the mono mix sounds more carefully considered (and fucking tremendous -- it enhanced my appreciation of this record like no other alternate mix of anything, ever).

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 16:19 (five years ago) Permalink

^^^me too. I mean the Beatles and Village Green mono mixes are amazing but I already loved those records. The Piper mono mix takes a record I never quite loved and brings it finally to life.

re: odds and sods discs, I used to have an 'import' version of Relics that appended the Syd-era singles tracks. Wish I hadn;t sold that.

hibernaculum (Jon Lewis), Tuesday, 29 January 2013 16:35 (five years ago) Permalink

Supposedly, Saucerful was also mixed in mono, but has yet to be reissued as such.
