    That's right, I hope that the rest of footage that is circulating from this tour (Vienna, Munich, Cleveland, Anaheim, Montreal) gets the same re-transfer upgrade

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sure you have heard this interview with James Guthrie...


    Where at around 32:20 minutes he mentions the 5.1 mix of The Wall that he is working on.

    If you listen further at 33:30 he confirms that he has completed the 5.1 mix of Animals, at which point he confirmed a new stereo mix of Animals too.

    The above link was first posted on the thread Pink Floyd - The Wall in 5.1.

    It was mentioned back in October on that thread, however I had missed that it (the new stereo mix) had been revealed publicly by James, I don't think Roger had previously mentioned it in public.

  4. Wow, never seen that before! Was this filmed by someone in the audience?
    Really wish there was an actual concert film from that tour...

    I've read an interview with brian humphries from a french magazine back in June '77, where he says that they recorded the rehearsals and one performance in order to improve the show!

    Has anyone ever asked Brian Humphries if any work was done on an Animals quad? He did the WYWH quad IIRC...

    Going on 3 years and 3033 posts since this thread started and we’re probably less close to this happening since the 1st post.

    Glaciers are moving quicker than Floyd on this, so disappointing that they just can't work things out.

    While scouring desperately for some updated info on Animals getting a 5.1 release I found an interview with James Guthrie on a German Pink Floyd website (hooray for Google Translate :thumbsup:) which was posted on October 4, 2020. Here's a snippet from the interview:

    ...Towards the end of the conversation he reveals that he has set up a new studio for Roger Waters , remixed Animals on stereo and 5.1 and is almost done with the surround mix of The Wall album.

    Can you give us a sneak preview about any current projects that you can tell us about?

    "James Guthrie:
    I nearly finished with the 5.1 surround mix of the original Wall Album. That has been really interesting as a full circle experience. The pandemic has delayed our progress to finishing it of course and other Floyd related projects took precedence from time to time, and we were building a studio for Roger Waters in New York (laughs). But the fact remains. I was 25 when I mixed The Wall, I was 56 when I began the process of 5.1 surround-mix and I didn't see that coming. Apart from that, I completed new stereo and 5.1 mixes of Animals and I worked on an album of my own music."

    I'm certain that others have read or heard this interview but just in case Tongenie James Guthrie über seinen 5.1 Surround-Mix von Animals und The Wall | Pulse & Spirit
    It's in German but in Chrome Google Translate will automatically convert it to English. I think a link to the podcast is on this page too.

    Like everyone else I'm chomping at the bit to have my favorite Floyd album released in 5.1.:waiting: So for the love of all things sacred, please release Animals in 5.1! At least before I die...:bone:

    Hey, wouldn't it be great if the inevitable Animals box set included the one soundboard that is supposed to exist of the US 1977 tour?

    By the way, given the times, I would really enjoy a Dolby Atmos treatment along with the 5.1.

    It would be great to have a Dolby Atmos mix of Animals. But I think getting the 5.1 mix released would be a good place to start. Has James Guthrie been involved with any Dolby Atmos mixes?
