Great story pplains.

dumb hoffman forums have indicated that a Late Years box set (featuring the post-waters era) is on the way and will be announced soon, covering everything from Momentary Lapse through Endless River, with live shows (audio and video) plus a wealth of unreleased studio stuff (big spliff assumingly).

akm, Friday, 24 May 2019 18:55 (one year ago) link

huh! is there a reason that they refuse to do an animals immersion set?

tylerw, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:00 (one year ago) link

(and yeah great story pplains!)

tylerw, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:00 (one year ago) link

no word yet on animals immersion. my guess at some point they'll relent and do a middle years box since those immersion sets are pretty old now and the wall one kind of sucked.

akm, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:13 (one year ago) link

i have a soft spot for momentary lapse but it doesn't really seem like an era that's ripe for reappraisal

mookieproof, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:22 (one year ago) link

i want an Animals immersion set ;_;

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 24 May 2019 19:39 (one year ago) link

There's a remixed version of Momentary Lapse with the 80s keyboards and production touches edged out and apparently with more of Wright that's been knocking around since way before the Immersion sets were even announced, I'd like to hear that.

MaresNest, Friday, 24 May 2019 21:37 (one year ago) link

someone else apparently in the know claims that was never finished and scrapped and therefore not happening on this box set

akm, Friday, 24 May 2019 23:50 (one year ago) link

but same person would neither confirm nor deny the presence of all the music recorded for this:

The Christies print catalog from the Gilmour sale arrived yesterday. Total gear nerd-out material.

nothing for them to release! unless they want to start putting out audience tapes and uninteresting "rough mixes". just listen to those three really good aud tapes and you're good

Flood-Resistant Mirror-Drilling Machine (rushomancy), Saturday, 25 May 2019 03:22 (one year ago) link

I think a 5.1 mix of animals has been done for quite some time. who knows why they haven't gotten around to releasing it.

akm, Saturday, 25 May 2019 15:27 (one year ago) link

also, I have just finally come around on Division Bell, which I used to really dislike and thought it sounded mushy and MOR and dull. Maybe I'm just older and have gone soft and MOR myself but now I thknk it's a really great album!

akm, Saturday, 25 May 2019 15:28 (one year ago) link

two weeks pass...

I love the outer-spacey production style on The Division Bell. It’s the lack of good songwriting that bogs it down. And background singers.

Auction is going on now. Christies site for the auction is overwhelmed, but they app apparently works. Updates as they're sold on twitter.

Never knew this happened, Reg guesting on Set The Controls with Nick Mason a few months ago...

DSOTM is the reward for Pink Floyd fans who suffered through the nonsense before it.

Crazy talk, what came before it is their most interesting period, just finished Bill Kopp's 'Reinventing Pink Floyd' which is about that era and it's ace.

MaresNest, Friday, 2 August 2019 09:07 (one year ago) link

Not crazy at all, the run from DSotM through to The Wall easily outstrips anything that came before it.

van dyke parks generator (anagram), Friday, 2 August 2019 09:18 (one year ago) link

That's not something I would argue with, but 'nonsense' it ain't.

MaresNest, Friday, 2 August 2019 09:21 (one year ago) link

Mid > early >>> late.

pomenitul, Friday, 2 August 2019 09:36 (one year ago) link

I would argue, but then it's all in the eye or ear of the beholder, innit?

Mark G, Friday, 2 August 2019 09:43 (one year ago) link

Early (up to Obscured), plus "animals", that'll do me.

Mark G, Friday, 2 August 2019 09:44 (one year ago) link

The span from More OST through to Animals is all I need

doug watson, Friday, 2 August 2019 12:29 (one year ago) link

Up to Obscured is fine by me, plus reading about the madness that came afterwards, if not listening to the music

PaulTMA, Friday, 2 August 2019 13:18 (one year ago) link

Meddle is their best album imo

Obscured by Clouds the most underrated

obscured by clouds is an interesting one because it was written _after_ "dark side of the moon" but it was thrown together in like a week

definitely noticeable how much they've upped their songwriting game since "more", but not as, uh, labored? as "wish you were here" which was worked out over the course of like a year on the road

Abigail, Wife of Preserved Fish (rushomancy), Friday, 2 August 2019 13:41 (one year ago) link

somehow found myself listening to division bell outtakes lol
this kinda rules

tylerw, Friday, 2 August 2019 18:47 (one year ago) link

their best period is every other album but only listened to in random order

akm, Friday, 2 August 2019 19:11 (one year ago) link

'later years' box set should be announced soon from what I've heard

akm, Friday, 2 August 2019 19:11 (one year ago) link

DSOTM rules but Meddle and Animals rule more.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 2 August 2019 20:15 (one year ago) link

yeah meddle is where the strongest organic Floyd magic occurs... i love parts of Dark Side but it does seem like they’re kinda forcing the magic to happen a bit. If I were around at the tine I’d probably have an opinion more grounded in reality.

brimstead, Friday, 2 August 2019 23:34 (one year ago) link

Piper is kind of sui generis. Such a huge soft spot for that record but I have a hard time evaluating it within the context of their catalogue; it was a different band.

I haven’t heard AMLOR since it came out, and I’ve never heard the other late-period records. My idiosyncratic ranking of the rest:

Dark side
Saucerful of secrets
Wish you were here
Atom heart mother
The wall
Obscured by clouds (I know, I know, I’m a philistine)
The final cut

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Saturday, 3 August 2019 23:49 (one year ago) link

Also there needs to be a nice concise collection of the early studio recordings that weren’t collected on albums, undiluted by album tracks. Am I missing anything important/pleasurable here? At 51 minutes it’s a little long for an LP — if you drop Beechwoods and Seabirds it’s down to 42 and probably doesn’t suffer too much.

Arnold Layne
Candy and a Currant Bun
See Emily Play
Apple and Oranges
Scream Thy Last Scream
Vegetable Man
In the Beechwoods
Point Me at the Sky
Careful With that Axe, Eugene
It Would Be So Nice
Julia Dream

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Sunday, 4 August 2019 00:14 (one year ago) link

No-one's been able to find "Seabirds" yet, so it wouldn't be on any album anyway.

The 1992 CD The Early Years has ten of those and is supposed to be really good sounding.
