    Ever since the release of the Early Years box set from last year, I started to think what could lie ahead if a "Later Years" box set were to ever come to fruition.

    The first things that came to mind that could be considered for inclusions were:
    • The "Household Objects" recordings
    • The "Animals" extraction tapes
    • Roger Waters' full demo of "The Wall"
    • A version of the tentative "Spare Bricks" album
    • Remixed "Momentary Lapse"
    • The Big Spliff
    Your thoughts?

    La Carrera Panamericana-tracks.
    Final Cut-demos.
    Atlanta '87.
    Venice '89.

    ...among other things.

    I'd buy it, of course. The early years box was my favorite box set of 2016 - and I bought a lot.

    All band demos from The Wall and some live/soundboard material from 1975 and 1977, if that's possible.

    Roger Waters' full demo of "Pros and Cons" the choice the band did not take. (The band said it was difficult to choose between them.) Never Happen

    I have always wondered what Pros and Cons would have sounded like with full band treatment.

    "Peace Be with You", an unreleased "Momentary Lapse"-era song where Gilmour bids farewell to their departed bassist. Can't imagine why that never showed up anywhere.

    While it would be well outside of the scope of the Early Years Box, I wouldn't mind something that brought in Mason and Wright's solo material from around that time. As far as I'm aware, it's all very out of print and very expensive to acquire. Not essential, but it'd be nice to give it another airing.

    Who knows. Maybe Waters was against its release. He was against anything Gilmour did with the Floyd in the late 1980s.

    Nah, I just think that as time passed, Gilmour was wishing Roger something other than peace.

    Which brings me to another point: would it be easier for everyone if there were two hypothetical "later years" boxes, one 1973-1983 or so, and another 1987-1995?

    NO Need to include anything after Pro and Cons, They dont need to waste time with Gilmour FLoyd as all that stuff has been well documented. I like the list the OP put up. They need to just empty the vaults on 73-84 including all solos and concerts.

    Well, at least those concert films from Delicate Sound Of Thunder need a DVD/Bluray release.

    There was a song Waters wrote called "Bitter Love" that Nicholas Schafner mentioned in his Saucerful Of Secrets biography--apparently it was Waters' feeling in song form of the band "selling out" by appearing in a French wine print ad (somewhere around the Dark Side/WYWH era).

    I don't know that this track, which was apparently recorded, has ever seen the light of day. That would be a good inclusion as well, if found.

    Would appreciate finally hearing some live Animals soundboards from that tour as well.

    I'd be extremely surprised if this was ever actually recorded.

    From a quick look, it seems like it never made it past a demo.

    This? Looks like from the late-Meddle/early-DSOTH period.

    The Oakland '77 show is out there so that could count as that.

    I believe it also went under another (working?) title, 'How Do You Feel?'.

    It was a French tour in summer of '74.

    That's what it was, a bitter lemon drink.

    Found this online:

    Bitter Love audio + WYWH-related material

    Certainly sounds like it at least informed the imagery in the cover art for WYWH, with the faceless, absent business suit selling records out in the desert.

    Oh... And I always considered their desert photo shooting as taken during the time when Meddle came out... Some other photos of that were present in the Meddle CD booklet.

    It's not a soundboard recording though. But a very excellent audience recording. Great to have at least this as a document from the Animals Tour.

    I've posted this before

    For those who own the wonderful book "Comfortably Numb: A History of The Wall" A FULL concert film of The Wall Live 1980-81 was produced years ago, mixed with the multitracks.

    Why oh why it hasn't released yet, it's beyond me

    THAT would be a holy grail

    Also, the Wall Lost Documentary could be included as well
