    This surfaced as if by accident after TEY was released. KQED didn't even know that they had it at the time.

    I've read about this a few times probably on AFG and/or Yeeshkul, it might just be rumours, but my impression is that it was actually in the pipeline but got cancelled for some reason.
    Whether or not it's true I'm sure there would be enough content to fill out a box set.

    It's not true and was never considered for an Immersion.

  4. From what has been said on these boards, additional multi-tracks were found and the producers of the box were not notified and did not find out till the box had been produced. There was never a "Immersion" box planned. At the time the Early Years box went to press, all that was known was what was on it.

    Thanks for the clarification :)
    So back to The Later Years, I wonder what they will actually call it? The Later Years has actually grown on me so I would be fine with that title, but they might call it something completely different, like a line from a song just as they did with The Endless River :)
    Pink Floyd - Forever and Ever (sounds a bit cheesy lol)

    That's definitely not true.
     
  7. Read over on the board about the Earl Years box before you make statements like that.

    I did. And my statement is 100% correct.
    Your assumption/opinion is in fact really naive.

    Not everything was available at the time of the release of TEY (like the recently discovered performance of Astronomy Domine from KQED) but there were decisions regarding leaving off things they had. I doubt that the bit of the Echoes demo is all there is of that and there are early mixes of some songs (Scream and Veg Man) and mono mixes of singles that were left off.

    I dont know if anyone involved with the project knew about the Producer's Workshop multitracks but I wouldnt put it past them.

    Exactly. Plus Saucerful Mono or Fillmore West Live recorded by Bill Graham (too expensive to license). And much more.

    Check your facts. My friend.

    Top of my wish list for this box is the discs being on spindles!
     
  12. So, still nothing “Official”? Would be nice to hear something soon.

    There was a piece in Guitar World in 2012 where they interviewed Nick Mason and John Leckie about the making of Meddle and where they printed the following:

    "Meddle is the linchpin between the itinerant creativity of Pink Floyd’s early years and the sophisticated conceptual work for which they are hailed today. Fittingly, the 40-year-old album is getting a facelift as part of EMI’s campaign to reissue several of the band’s significant albums in editions that include studio outtakes, live recordings and rare tracks. The new Experience and Immersion editions of Meddle help shed light on this vital, defining disc in the Pink Floyd catalog."

    That article and (now known to be erroneous) piece of information specifically is possibly the smoking gun that prompted much of the online speculation about a Meddle Immersion set.

    That's it. I knew I had read it somewhere :)
    I guess the content ended up in the Early Years box instead :)

    No, the writer of the article is mistaken. There were no plans for Experience or Immersion editions of Meddle. And I swear that this will be the last time I post this!

    It is a pity, however.

    I was using my Pink Floyd marbles today with my son... and he enjoyed playing with them (he is 4, going on 5), so here is hoping to some ephemera in the next box set. I am all for it! Scarves, posters, marbles... surprise me!

    I noticed you changed your avatar. Is that nod to what is likely to be the artwork of the box?

    Imo, they won't use artwork that is tied to a specific album. TEY used a simple stripe that was used from a gear van. The flight case during the Gilmour era would makes sense as sort of a follow up using that same idea.

    But I could be wrong. These next ~3 weeks are going to be so slow!

    I have just finished watching my Knebworth bootleg special edition DVD. All the songs which were televised on MTV/ITV/BBC etc
    The band were on top form that night Sorrow is brilliant people knock Gary Wallis for jumping around on stage etc but his playing on Sorrow add's so much to the drumming and overall sound of that song same as he did in 87-89 and during 94.

    Comfortably Numb that version has to be one of the best live versions of it. I have always liked it from the first time i saw it after getting into PF its a superior solo to Pulse IMO.

    The intro to RLH is so good that tone David used during 87-94 is so good and add's to build up.

    Hopefully we get the complete show if not even if we get CN-RLH on Blu-Ray & audio i would be happy Sorrow would be a bonus. But the show does need to be considered restored picture and audio doubtful, but a new edit to include more shots of Richard.

    I guess we will find out soon enough what its in this box set.

    I also.really like Knebworth 1990! Comfortably Numb is epic! I'm hoping all 7 songs will be included even though Great Gig in the Sky is pretty rough if I remember correctly.
