    Thank you for the clarification!

    Norco74 You can tell me by the way I walk...

    At this price, one would expect the boxset to have minimal omissions. I can live without vinyl transfers as they are usually cr*p but as a minimum, original flat transfer should be included.

    I bought the Three Piece Suite on aBR out of curiosity and was very happy with the inclusion of the original flat transfers. My hope to see In the Glass House and Freehand individually released and remixed by SW has now vanished. I will probably buy some individual items from the box when and if available. Don’t count me in for live sets with subpar sound quality.

    It's doubtful the multis for In A Glass House will ever be found, but Dan Bornemark has digital transfers of the Free Hand multis. And as Steven Wilson is now married with two young stepdaughters, I fully expect his touring to slow down and scale back. I'm hoping this means he'll devote more time to mixing others' work. With any luck, that will include more Gentle Giant.

    So, sorry if this has already been solved.
    I have found another SH forum on this new box topic, but i found that it is not populated.

    At the time of the Three Piece Suite , two years ago, the word was that all the others multitracks tapes were lost.

    Anyone knows what this is about?
    Have they found them in order to remix the first abum?

    We can hope also the same for the other albums?

    many thanks

    It is indeed something that needs an answer.
    Guess you are talking about the multitracks for the first album!?
    As the first album is the only one included in this box as a surround mix.
    I know that Dan Bornemark had the multis,
    but in a lower resolution than what Wilson would like to work with.

    Yes I am talking abut the forst album.
    Only three tracks were on The 3 part suit BluRay...

    Let's hope someone has the answer; if it is YES, they found the missing multitracks, maybe they have found also the others for the other albums

    Many thanks for this. Very interesting. Nevertheless, he says that already "back in 1996" he found the complete 16 tracks tapes front the first album. While from the second and the third albums he found just the multitracks that we had in 2017 on th 3 piece suite. So, if I am not wrong with my english understanding, in 2017 Steven Wilson too had all the tapes to remix the first album... My question is alive... Anyone have more insight? Many thanks

    I had high hopes for this box set, but i have zero interest in audience recordings, let alone buying the original albums again. The price is way too high for me, as the only things i would like to have are the remixed Playing the Fool shows, and maybe the book.

    I didn't buy the 38 disc Woodstock set, and i won't be getting this, or Pink Floyd's Later Years box set.

    Dont think Wilson had all the tapes (if we are talking about Dans tapes)
    From what I remember Dan was very surpriced by this, as he says the band knew he had the tapes. But no one contacged him regarding this. Maybe they forgot he had them. But at that stage it was to late to change anything.

    That's where I am at...if these weren't audience live albums I would probably bite but I'm not paying that kind of money for one remixed album and a bunch of audience tapes being the only new material.

    From the GG FB page -

    The band wanted to say a quick thank you to all for your support. We’re very grateful for the fantastic response to the ‘Unburied Treasure’ box set. Madfish has informed us that it’s their fastest selling deluxe set to date! Here is the picture of the first box, which arrived for inspection before the other 1,999 are made and delivered.

    Thanks, that's very reasonable. So, fingers crossed for the future remixes

    Any recordings of this ?
     
  15. If you can put up with the quality of this interview and the recurrent gurgling toilet sounds and make up 50% of what Derek says here...

    Otherwise the recollection I was looking for, perhaps from Ray, which left a very different feeling, closer to what I was hinting at, seems unavailable at the moment - I think it was on the GG tour page history (http://www.ggtourhistory.50webs.com/), which is unavailable at the moment, perhaps because it looks like it has been included precisely in the material from this 30-disc collection release...

    Weird. I've been having the same problem with some other folks posting pictures but I can see the above one in both places here.

    This is really interesting, and a little disappointing.
    I would love the 5.1 of the debut .... I have all the albums. Some of the bits and pieces might be interesting, but essentially for me, I'd be paying two hundred and fifty pounds for one disc....
