    I wouldn't be interested in another expensive, all encompassing mega-set like this. We've already gotten sets for DSOTM, WYWH, The Wall (though it was missing some things, and Division Bell, so I doubt that there's this wealth of additional material to draw from like there was on the Early Years. Just give me a nice Animals set with 5.1, outtakes and live performances and I'll be happy.

    From the Nick Sedgwick In The Pink (Not A Hunting Memoir) book that had a limited release as part of the Mortal Remains Exhibit:

    [​IMG]

    A fan had a go at deciphering:

    Re Perrier, an unpublished snippet!

    "I was selling my soul in the desert,
    How do you feel?
    Taking my pieces of silver
    How do you feel?
    Do you feel good, do you feel grown?
    Do you think you could make it alone?
    How, how, do you feel?"

    It goes on, something about
    Acts of collusion.

    "We advertise acts of collusion."
    "Shatter the childhood illusion.
    Do you feel rich, do you feel??????."
    At home?...

    Not many fans are aware about the Toronto 1987 rehearsals

    They were filmed and included 'Echoes'. It would great to have in good quality at last

    Yeah, think I read somewhere it was roughly edited together around 1999/2000 when they planned to bring out the Wall live album.
    The CDs came out but the film project was scrapped however. Would love to see the live footage. It MUST get a release!

    The mini concert at Knebworth 1990 was excellent

    One of the greatest renditions of 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond' as a 3 piece band

    I have the Wet Dream album on vinyl, and I think it works very well as a companion piece to Gilmour's s/t solo album. Never heard Nick Mason's Fictitious Sports, but just missed out on getting the CD from a street vendor a couple years back.

    In case you're wondering, THERE'S SO MUCH MATERIAL than what we were offered on 'Immersion' sets

    Here's just an example, from 'Wish You Were Here' sessions
    Just listen to the full 25 min 'Shine on'.

    This [​IMG] album on vinyl is excellent if you can find a copy at a good price ?
    I got mine for under a tenner in a sale in Holland years ago.

    Then after the death of Steve O'Rourke it was revealed he had been sitting on a bunch of film reels from these shows. The story goes they had filmed a couple of songs using film (the footage you mentioned was poorly shot video) and what Roger didn't know was they decided to continue filming the whole show. Steve had kept these reels to spite Roger after the divorce. They were handed back to Roger and he had them edited to show his new band in preparation for his Wall tour. This is the footage that can be seen on The Wall Immersion set (The Happiest Days of Our Lives). Looks a lot better than anything we have seen before.

    So the whole show(s) were filmed, but Roger(?) still says there's not much footage existing. Strange.

    He doesn't say that anymore, this all changed when he received the film reels from Steve's estate. I recall him saying he would release it in the not too distant future...7 years ago! :)

    Think there was an interview of him I remember only blurry.^^ But yes, in that case there still is hope!
    Would be cool to have a 2 hours concert footage combined with an extended (unedited) studio version of The Wall exclusively in a reworked Immersion box set maybe...

    So if The Early Years was aimed at the older fans, they will no doubt have a "Later Years" box to aim at the younger fans.

    At any rate, they could collect all the immersion box extras along with whatever else is sitting around.

    I could imagine a compiled box set with all later material included, but not under the name The Later Years, sounds 'cheap' to me.
    Either it could get a totally different title or the works post-1975 will get individual releases, like the Immersion sets...

    Why not add side by side his Pros and Cons demo with the Wall demos (for historical purposes)

    The backing track became "Terminal Frost", if I remember correctly.

    Quite possible they just used old photos in the can for the advert. Besides, it's not like the Floyd had a "style evolution" through which you can date photos. Pretty much long greasy hair, jeans, and t-shirts from 70-73. By Animals, you had Dave's beard and the pig t-shirt as markers.

    I think Fictitious Sports is great, bit I fully understand Floyd fans hating the album. It's something else. Really a Carla Bley album. It has her songs in a jazzy vein with clever, humorous lyrics. Mason drums and co-produces, that's it. His name is on the cover to attract more buyers. Profiles from '85 is more Floyd-like and has Gilmour singing on one track.

    Stuevts Dave's not here.

    I would also add Dave's solo material and "Gun for hire" tracks.
    This is a stand out.

    In typical "rehashing" fashion, they can also include the extra material that was featured in the Immersion boxes from 2011-12:

    • Alan Parsons' early mix of Dark Side from '72
    • Brighton Dome '72 tracks
    • "The Hard Way" and "Wine Glasses" from Household Objects
    • Dark Side, Shine On, Raving and Drooling, Gotta Be Crazy from Wembley '74 (maybe with the inclusion of Echoes for the sake of completing the show)
    • Alternate versions from the WYWH sessions
    • Roger and band Wall demos
    It may be irritable for all of this stuff to re-appear but it can also be Sony's way of releasing that material considering EMI is now defunct and Sony/Pink Floyd Records have rejiggered the Discovery editions, only makes sense to cover all bases.

    Yeah I always assumed that the Early Years was a supplement to the individual later Deluxe edition albums (DSOTM,WYWH, The Wall) and that there wouldn't be a "Later Years" set coming out as most of it was already done.
