Pink Floyd Animals in 5.1

Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by rontoon, Apr 16, 2018.

  1. Well, that's double-tracked drums in the finale section, one drum kit per channel, so this might not count.

    It's what I've been saying. Its being witheld from release just to spite certain people. The war rages on. And this is obviously just from Roger's point of view. Didn't Polly also have something to say about this meeting?

    Reading that, it makes me think that David will not agree to a simple majority vote of the surviving members in regards to any decisions on reissues. Unsure as to whether it is because he wants to exclude Roger (who quit in the 1980s), or if it is intended to give Rick's (or Syd's) family a vote in anything from his tenure with the band.

    'RS Interview: Special Edition' With Roger Waters

    You can hear Roger himself talking about it on the video here, starting at minute 7:00.
    So the "big-peace-plan" was apparently the release of the Animals box, after all. Which Roger seems to imply that was vetoed by David, probably because it was James Guthrie who did this remaster, in an attempt to strike back at Roger, who had vetoed the Andy Jackson's Meddle / OBC remixes on TEY.
    Who got screwed on both occasions? Yes, the fans.

    AFAIK, it's still mostly about the Waters/Guthrie vs Gilmour thing. Keep in mind that a recent request to remaster PULSE for TLY was denied so both parties are doing us no favors.

    Right. There was PULSE as well. Maybe we could have gotten the full show.

    So Guthrie did tons of stuff for years for the Floyd and now suddenly he's not good enough for Gilmour? And Roger's the bad guy in all this? What a trainwreck.

    I don't see Roger as the bad guy in this issue. At all.

    Of course it's good enough. It has nothing to do with the quality of his work. It's just a bad relationship.

    Weird how things turn around over the years. Decades ago, it was Waters who was undoubtedly very bitter and angry. Now, it *seems* Gilmour is at least bitter, if not necessarily angry.

    There is one solution: if one party disagrees with the other over a mix, put both mixes in the release packages. Yep, that's not going to happen either...

    In other news, I also have the solution for world peace... :confused: :help: :D

    Obviously, this Animals 5.1 won't be released until one of them croaks. I say this knowing full well they owe us nothing. But don't they still want our money?

  14. So disappointing. I was excited to see at least the new Animals artwork Powell and his team made up.

    i'm glad they did not touch the Pulse audio for the new edit in TLY release just a shame it's also the main reason no other live audio from 94 was included in the box set. Sad thing is a lot of stuff won't get released until David & Roger pass away.

    It's about time these two pratts turn their legacy recordings over to a third party to manage, because they are just being a pair of kindergarten tots, and ruining their own legacy for some bs oneupmanship.

    I think they have more than enough money, and then there are people who bought The Later Years box when it was $500.

  18. Ha! I'd love to hear it -- especially the part where the singer keeps repeating "stoned" over and over again. (I know that's not what he's actually saying, but it's more fun to imagine that's what he's droning.)

    Roger may be the biggest Ahole on the planet! He’s been this way since at least 1977.

  21. It's sad because Roger and David alone aren't that great in my opinion. When they're together, they make magic. Their live shows seem to retread the glory days of Floyd. I will say this: I love The Body. That's a great album, but the members of Floyd were all over this.

    Darn it Rog. Ah well...as long as I have my first print UK Animals Lp, and 2011 CD. Oh, and ROIO shows from '77.

    Thinking further about this.
    Last year Polly said that the peace plan was actually the other way around. David proposing something to Roger and Roger denied.
    What would that be? Releasing the AJ remixes of OBC and Meddle that were locked away, in exchange for the green light to release the JG Animals?

    Safe to say that with the release of TLY and this neverending battle, we've probably seen the last of PF releases in a long long time. Maybe the re-release of DSOT on Blu-Ray or the new remix of AMLOR, but that's it.
    I just realised that we're not gonna even see the supposedly glorious Pompeii video restoration on BluRay and audio remix. It was done by JG.
  24. Dude, that sucks. I love that Pompeii performance. I have it on dvd and on bootleg vinyl. I'd luv to see this on blu-ray.
