    I agree that the original stereo mix is excellent. The quad version of Echoes is a bit crazy in its use of surround. The new 5.1 Echoes definitely wins that contest.

    You know what I did to my separate volumes? I stuck the big stickers on in such a way that now they all have differently coloured spines. Looks better on the shelf that way.

    Outer Space and Inner Space
    In the "Reinventing Pink Floyd" book, by Bill Kopp, there's a discussion about "Moonhead" being a possible end of Pink Floyd's exploration into outer space, and that Roger Waters was looking, after the summer of 1969, more into going lyrically into the inner space of the human mind.
    Certainly, the "spacey" music continued, such as illustrated by some of the "Love Scene" tracks for the Zabriskie Point movie.
    Now, I would like to find out if a particular outtake from Zabriskie Point, known unofficially as Love Scene #2 (full mix) , and which doesn't seem to appear in any form in the Early Years Box Set, is available anywhere, presumably unofficially, with the distinctly non-spacey ( but amusing!)"sex vocals" removed, so that the music alone can be enjoyed.

    Amazon.de has a promotion of buying 2 and getting 3 on box sets. I pulled the triger finally on the 6 boxes for as low as 114,42€. 2 years waiting (or it was 30?) for this boxes finally ends. Grab them while you can because i dont see them getting any lower in price than this and the promotion ens if im not mistaken on the 10th december.

  7. I've also noticed the 1970 box getting quite scarce in North America. It's getting harder to find under list price these days. I actually had to import mine from Europe.

    Question: Having the six individual boxes, is there anything on the Tree Full of Secrets boot that is not included within them? Or maybe better quality than the official product? I know the BBC material on the bonus set in the big box isn’t great.

    I think by memory (sorry if um wrong) that a tree full of secrets has a lot of mono/stereo version if you like that. But only part of TFoS is about the same years of this box set. So relative to this years this EY has much more stuff, but TFoS extends to the years past 72.

    Thanks for the reply! Good to know. Yeah, I should’ve specified the years covered by the EY box.

    I just ordered the six boxes from Amazon.de, too. After having them in my Amazon(us) cart probably since the time they first came out, I finally decided to get them all because it was such a good deal-came out to $111.82.

    That is with shipping to Southern California! Every time I order from an Amazon outside the U.S., I’m intrigued with how they calculate all the costs. When I do it’s a better deal anyway so that helps, too. Enjoy the boxes and a great deal, Luis!

    Thanks, i will. This for me (even with all the lower points mentioned on this thread) is my dream box of all time.
    I suppose you will have to wait a bit more than me for the boxes to arrive. Lucky me.

    Right now i saw that the 67 volume seems unvailable now. Right on time for you, congrats.

    Damn, the version of Nightmare (Cymbaline) on The Man & The Journey show is so awesome!

    I could listen to cymbaline a thousand times in a row in any version. That one in that show is great. Its my favorite Floyd song.

    Off topic: im problably the only floydian in the universe for wich More is my favorite Floyd álbum by far.

    About this show i really dont like the man suite, think its quite boring, for me the exception is the nightmare. But Journey is great. Its a shame Gilmour's voice, though i think with time become used to it.

    More is fantastic, and would be even better, had they included 'Seabirds' at the time. Beats me why they never did that. Seems that one's lost forever now.

    More is one of their very best albums, no doubt about it.

    You bet. My big disappointment with More is the absense of Seabirds. As far as we could ear in the movie the song is great. Its also my big disappointment in EY.
    My theory why the song dont make it into the album is that were problably some issue with it, like a big mistake or something.

    I thought it had been established earlier in the thread that they couldn't find it?
