    I picked up the RSD edition of A Saucerful of Secrets remastered from the original MONO mix. Sounds phenomenal, I love this album so much! Really psyched to hear Nick Mason's band play stuff from it tomorrow night.

    Whoa. Yesterday Roger joined Nick Mason's band for a rendition of Set the Controls...



    Also, there's probably gonna be a live album from this tour.

    I hope they film for a DVD/Blu as the stage setup looks fantastic, but I will absolutely settle for an album.

    This is on my mind this morning. For personal reasons, but having lived with the album so long I think I can say this might be my favorite song from Amused To Death. It's plainly very personal to Roger, mentioning his father and his time busking in Lebanon, cleverly weaving the Midas fable into something contemporary.

    I got to see the exhibit of Gilmour's guitars at Christie's yesterday ahead of today's auction. My jaw was on the floor when I saw some of them up close. A beautiful, staggering collection!

    Almost four million for The Black Strat. Incredible!

    That is INSANE! I knew it would fetch at least a million, but apparently it went for the highest ever for a guitar at auction.

    That’s Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay. Guy has a collection of rare and valuable guitars. Must be nice.

    I just hope whoever bought the "Wish You Were Here" 12-string Gilmour used to write the riff also bought the 6-string that solos over the intro, so they can stay together. They were side-by-side in the exhibit, which I found kinda moving.

    I think that might be an extra on the Blu-ray/DVD of this, but that is purely speculation. I know he has said that it's not too far from his mind as far as release, it's just been waiting for the right moment to put it out.

    Lots of drama in that family. His dad was pretty screwed up too, and is pretty much why the team moved to Indy from Baltimore.

    The bad news is the price tag on this is ridiculous. Amazon.co.uk has it at 430. The good news is that this will likely be broken up into separate sets starting early next year, much like the Early Years set, with the setback that some of the content will be exclusive to the box to make it worth the price for whoever can get it.

    Okay, so... I should address this right off: I don't really care much for this period of the band. I'm a huge fan of their earlier stuff, but even as a young fan, for me there was a big gap in how I related to them as a 'going concern' in the 90s versus their glory days. Other bands mocked them for being corporate whores and so forth. It wasn't a cool time to be in Pink Floyd.

    I do enjoy some songs from The Division Bell, and a couple from Momentary Lapse, but overall there's a noticeable dearth of creative juice after Roger Waters split. Still some spectacular live shows, mind you (and that seems to be the focus of this box), but all the emotional resonance comes from the musical interplay, not the grand ideas and scope of their epic 70s albums. And even that musical spark is stretched too thin, most of the time. They did occasionally catch fire with some excellent performances... I'm going to watch the full Venice '89 broadcast today to refresh my memory of it, since that seems to feature prominently here.

    Things to point out about the contents of the box (just going from what I can see of it in the image above, there's bound to be a full tracklisting released at the end of this week): there's lots of memorabilia. Like, way too much. I think the handbills and tickets and stuff in The Early Years boxes were really cool, because they're from a bygone era. The shit with Volkswagen tour branding and so forth... thanks but no thanks!

    The "remixed & updated" version of the A Momentary Lapse of Reason album is kind of interesting, and hopefully this is one of the things that gets parted off on its own later for streaming/standalone release. It's always sounded like garbage, drenched in 80s FM synths and digital reverb, but I heard that Nick Mason re-recorded the session drummers' parts on his own, around the time they were doing the work for The Endless River, and also more of Rick Wright's keyboard parts from live shows had been dubbed into the mix as well.

    Delicate Sound of Thunder is another one that desperately needed a remix. I absolutely hate the original mix. The video as it stands now is also unwatchable, due to yet more awful 80s post-production choices, so this could also turn out to be a welcome resuscitation. The Knebworth show from 1990 was one of the only times they performed "The Great Gig in the Sky" with the original vocalist Clare Torry (but it's not on the official VHS, so hopefully that's included here).

    PULSE is going to be the same mix, same standard-definition video source, just 'restored and re-edited' for hi-def formats. Okay... guess we'll see how that turned out. I don't expect much improvement from the existing DVDs. The documentaries and unreleased live films could turn out to be worthwhile. Maybe the screen films from all the tours in one place will be nice and handy to have (the ones from the Dark Side/Wish You Were Here Immersion box sets were a little screwed up, and the PULSE DVD ones were cropped to the circular screen format).

    I already have the 5.1 mix of The Division Bell on DVD, it's quite good but that's not the main attraction for me, just to have it here again on Blu-ray. Presumably, the new Momentary Lapse remix is also on that disc also in 5.1, so that should be worthwhile. Didn't everybody already get The Endless River deluxe version with the 5.1 mix? Regardless, it's probably here too. Everything except these 5.1 mixes appears to be duplicated on both Blu-ray and DVD. Waste of space and materials, if you ask me, but I don't mind having it just as a backup or to keep in a second location.

    That leaves the two 7" singles, "Arnold Layne - Live" (from the May 2007 Syd Barrett tribute show, "Madcap's Last Laugh" at Barbican Hall in London) and "Lost for Words" band rehearsal. I dislike the latter song, so I don't care that it's here, but the AL performance is important presumably because it's the last official live performance from the band. Roger Waters played at the same show, solo, but he left the building before PF took the stage, ironically enough: his excuse was he had to catch a plane.

    So, again, I'll wait and see what the full listing of contents is, but my gut reaction is there are some potentially interesting things here, but not enough for me to hit the pre-order button. I'll be the first to stream it/watch clips online of the restored stuff, but again, too much padding.

    One of the best concert movies I know. Amazing right from the very beginning, it's not just the concert but more like a story, and I didn't know the production was so EPIC, must have been absolutely mesmerizing to be there. Amazing sound, musicians, pictures, songs, female singers (doing it a bit differently this time) and I also love the new songs because they're just plain good.

    I'd go to see it one more time without hesitation again. And the most powerful moment? The scene with words ending with "LOSER", wow. Damn, cinemas, just shut up and take my money and do it again. Just little observation, sound during some of the breaks (?) was louder and cleaner so I'm not sure if they happened also live or were edited in later.

    PS: When was the last time that good artists were OK with POTUS?

    Edit: Like, the chimneys even had smoke, are you for real? :-O :-) I was wondering if the images are projections or from the inside or what, but probably LED screens (70 meters long).
