    I was talking of the non inclusion on More in 69. Its rather strange (at least for me) since i found that song great.

    I really love this album, too. You're definitely not alone with this.

    Plus, one more non-instrumental on side two wouldn't have hurt...

    Imagine the 'Spanish Piece' being longer, starting with spanish guitar and then it flows into electric guitars, full band and jamming.

    You also said you were disappointed it wasn't on EY.

    Presumably if they couldn't find it recently the same had applied decades ago when More was put together.

    Sorry i was not very clear.
    I acept the "couldnt find it" for EY but find very strange they couldnt find it in 69. But any theory is possible. Who knows...

    I’m thinking about getting some of the stand alone sets and am interested in people ‘s opinion on Reverber/ation? I guess my main interest is the quad mix of Echoes. I ordered the Devi/ation set off of EBay for around $30. I also have the two CD sampler of the set but not yet listened to all of it. First impression was that the mastering was a bit bright. Which of the earlier sets is essential? I have 3 bootleg CDs of BBC sessions material that I bought a few years back and always thought they sounded pretty fantastic.

    Honestly, I think the video and surround content is the main draw (and the reason I haven’t bought any of these sets). I have great sounding boots of most of the live stuff which freely circulate and have streamed a lot of the rest of the box - on YouTube. General consensus is that the boots sound as good or better for most of the material.
    I don’t have a surround system and I would probably watch the video at most once.

    Unfortunately, for reasons I can't remember now, the stereo tapes of the '71 BBC sessions were not used. Anyway, I'm satisfied with the mastering, and, since you are familiar with the material, you already know that the performance itself is top-notch.
    In general, the mastering is on the bright side, I agree. In some cases, it's fine, and in others, it's too much (Obscured by Clouds remix)

    Perhaps MONO Saucer to be released in 2019 (50th anniversary)? - If not then certainly 2029 for the 60th. - If not by then certainly 2039 for … and so on ...

    Wasn't 2018 the 50th anniversary?

    Not for the prime live 1974 material. It goes from a 6.5 to a 8.9 in quality with the tapes they have to work with and the careful mixing done.

    Isn’t that just one track on the box? Echoes? The rest of the 74 live is on the DSOTM and WYWH boxes.

    You are correct, I got my boxes mixed up. Thank you.

    No problem. I agree, the live 74 show is a nice upgrade. Silly that they spread it over 3 boxes. That would have sold nicely as a stand-alone set.

    Possibly they just forgot that Saucerful was also released in mono back then.
    There's a Nick Mason interview related to the Saucerful album where he misremembers the first two albums being produced and released in only one version each: Piper in mono and Saucerful in stereo.^^

    A vinyl release of the full concert would be a great opportunity.

    Rumours say the stereo tape of the '71 BBC concert was wiped shortly after a re-edited copy was done for an American radio station, it's the one with the annoying interrupter.

    Don’t care about vinyl, but absolutely an easy sell.

    More random questions. How is the Live In Pompeii CD? I read mixed reviews on it but this is one item that definitely interests me. I wish each of the separate releases had stand alone threads.

    Also, anyone care to rate each individual package with pros cons and general opinions? That would be fun to read all in one place.
