    I got in on it too at that price. Around the same time they also had Chicago quad box for $60. Both sets had replacement discs...

    Got around to extracting the separate channels for the quad mix of Atom Heart Mother. It's pretty cool to hear Gilmour's solo in the title track more or less without the other music.

    That’s where I got it too, it was only for a very short period of time, possibly 8 or 12 minutes. When it arrived the outer box was split and partially crushed. When I contacted Amazon about replacing it, they couldn’t as the stock was gone, so they rounded the price down to £100. Go me! As it happens, the box is in my attic and i just keep the inner box with the seven booksets on my shelf - much easier to navigate. I think if they’d sold it like that, without the vinyl singles, and pitched it at £199 it would’ve sold more. But what do I know?

    ^^ I sold off everything except the 7 volumes and the outer box that holds them. I only kept the digital audio/video content (CD/DVD/BD). The big outer box was bulky, and all of that memorabilia, while cool, wasn't anything that I needed taking up space in my music room.

    Can't blame ya. The box takes up room in my music collection as well. WOW!! I can't part with any of it as hoaky as the extras are.

    Every once in a while, I think about either selling the thing off entirely or doing what you did (though, at this point, I doubt there's much demand for the outer box and ephemera). The weakness of the box design isn't just the size of the thing, but also that it's not really much to look at. Makes it hard to feel good about this big black box with its stupid white stripe taking up half a shelf...

    Finding it hard to go through every page but did anyone ever do a bluray artwork for holding all the blurays in one case.Ive got 8 blurays but wanted to house them in one case.

    Apologies if this has been asked and answered, but PF made pdfs of each individual volume's tracklisting available from the official site (example here). Does anyone know if there is a similar one for the bonus Continuation set?

    Why did they replace all audio on Blu-ray/DVD restored footage with album masters? What a waste. Just doesn't sound right.

    "All"? Hardly. There's hours of video with the original audio. What are you talking about?

    There is the rumour (didn't check it myself) that the Pink Floyd Piper 'special' made in Brussels had an alternative mono mix, but this was replaced by the regular album versions.

    It's not a rumor. I have near perfect copies with the original mono audio remastered. In a few cases there are differences in the mix (Paintbox, Corporal Clegg).

    I believe the poster meant any video where the studio recording was the audio of the film. In that sense, they did replace all of them with the masters rather than the actual audio from the show/film. In some cases it really made sense to do that. In others, it lost out on unique mixes or just didn't mesh well with original audio they had to blend with it or was no longer in proper sync. I would've preferred they at least included the original audio as a 2nd track.

    Not all. But I agree with you regarding the second audio track option.

    And therein lies the problem with using the word "all" in regards to restored footage. Makes it sound like they literally took the KQED performance and slapped the studio versions on them instead or something.

    I also agree with a second audio track. It would have been nice, but this is such a minor thing compared to what was included as video content.

    Well, I've reached the middle of the second disc (1968) and finally there's some footage with live sound. I figure they replaced audio because it's supposed to use the same studio mixes anyway, however album stereo isn't really mixed with video in mind and it sounds detached. It should be mixed in mono and I bet original mono used in the video is a little different to the studio album mono too.

    Can this be explained to a guy with limited brain power? I tend to notice any Syd (Piper) related news, and I've generally followed this thread. This info is not computing, especially with Rontoon's response.

    This is referring to the Tienerklanken videos from 1968. In these videos the band mimed to playback and originally the mono mixes of these songs were used for the videos. Some of these mixes differ from the stereo versions. Here's a link to the videos from TEY where the original mono mixes were replaced with stereo audio with better fidelity.

    For comparison, here's Paintbox with the original audio. The main difference is at the end of the song.



    Here's the original version of Corporal Clegg for comparison with the version on TEY. It also has a different ending.

    It's too bad we didn't get the original audio (or at least the option of 2 audio tracks) because these are rare mixes!

    Clear enough? :waiting:

    The alternate ending of "Corporal Clegg" has always intrigued me. I guess they were still working on the album and just sailed/flew/drove to Belgium with rough mixes/working tapes?

    That guitar at the end is so Syd Barrett-like, even if it has to have been played by David.

    Yeah, I like your theory. And these may have not even been the official mono mixes and could very well be one-offs making them even rarer.

    Yes, thanks! I thought Atagong's post was referring to some form of TEY sets containing an alt. mono mix of PATGOD....Reading comprehension isn't always my thing...

    Chris M recently posted on this forum saying Corporal Clegg was first rehearsed with the Syd line-up and he could even be the guitar player... or else Gilmour playing Syd's part. I found that to be intriguing, to say the least.

    Years ago (mid nineties) I went to a showing of Live at Pompeii in a small cinema at the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. For starters they had the Tienerklanken stuff on film reel. Funny thing was beforehand the audience was told the audio was on a separate tape. So they had real trouble syncing those. They were the different mono mixes though.
