    I love the three post-Waters albums, but I have the sensation that, musically speaking, this box would offer very little or literally nothing. I don't think there's much left in the vaults from this era. And if La Carrera Panemericana won't be included, I won't spent a penny on the box.

    I'm at the whole other end of the measuring tape. I had no interest in the Early Years box, but the latter years are right up my street and may well cause me to spend too much on Pink Floyd music. :D

    Mind, it depends on what we're talking about here. On the face of it though, they're getting me excited.

    Same here, except when it's stuffed with demos and outtakes.

    There's also a Wall show shot on film yet to be released.

    D'oh, forgot that one too. I hope we get that at some point as well.

    Anyway, back ot, I really like the artwork used for the take it back edit that was put up recently on Spotify. I don't think I've seen that specific version of the stone heads before. I'm used to the cassette version.

    Was that another quietly released preview track then?

    Someone yesterday said that it has already been available for a little while now. So not too new.

    Not Sure what the big deal is with High Hopes Radio Edit, it's not new I have had this on a CD Single since 1994.

    The big deal is that Pink Floyd is featuring music and photos from The Later Years' era on their social media platforms as teasers leading up to the big official announcement expected shortly. I'm assuming that the promo videos can't be too far away.

    The guitars have been sold so it should be full steam ahead for this release!

    It's a slow but certain start! Just a little tease

    Calm before the storm.
    This is one of the best times to be a fan, eagerly awaiting a new box set release, and these little teasers only adds to the excitement. I remember how amazing it was when The Early Years was announced and the entire content was revealed. I remember constantly reading the list with excitement :)
    I'm sure I'll do the same this time although the list is most likely shorter.

    This is extra exciting for me because I'm not as familiar with the Dave Floyd years. I probably have mentioned this before but I only really know PULSE which I watched on TV when I was first getting into Pink Floyd in general (like, it took me a while to get used to Roger singing Shine On even!) and I know the stuff that gets played on the radio and all, but the only album I have is Endless River. Not sure why I've waited this long to dig in, but hey, maybe my waiting paid off!

    I’d most definitely buy these box sets if they were issued. Late Pink Floyd (especially Animals through The Division Bell) is my favorite period of the band.

    I get that it's been hot and cold around here with some people who'd be excited for anything Pink Floyd related to see release on one side and folks who really don't rank the post-Waters era at all.

    That out of the way, I'm going to take a moment for a happy dance for the fact that this era is even getting the compilation (and hopefully rarities) treatment. Bring it on!

    The entire enterprise, for me, will have value based on what they give us up to and including The Final Cut. The Dave Floyd years are of little interest. If the box is weighted on the Dave Years side of things, I'd have to carefully think about a big purchase.

    I guess it stands to reason they'd have more material from the latter years post Waters.... but here's hoping they do something major for the Waters era.

    I've seen it as a bootleg, even if the quality if improved it's not hard to see why it was excluded from the Wall movie, sadly. It's good to see as a historical document.

    It's already been done the immersion box set's from a few years ago DSOTM, WYWH The Wall and from the DSOTM era to The Wall there is little pro shot footage out there as they did not document it at all in the 70's. Except The Wall footage and the footage included in Wall immersion release.

    Given the less than optimal results of the footage shot of the 80/81 The Wall shows, I can understand why it was considered unusable/unreleasable, even with a decent photochemical restoration. If the clip included on The Wall Immersion set is anything to go by, a digital restoration for home video looks as though it might be possible. The Happiest Days clip is entirely watchable and leaves one wishing and hoping for more.

    Roger put together a cut of the original Floyd The Wall concert footage when conceiving his 2010-2013 The Wall shows. I’d like to imagine the restored Immersion clip was taken from this (I’ve no way of knowing for sure).

    Given that Floyd/Roger have countenanced the release of some historically significant footage that is less than pristine (live audio on the 1967 Cambridge St/ation, and both audio & video footage on the Continu/ation set) that Floyd/Roger might eventually countenance the release of a restored Floyd The Wall concert film.

    I can understand that between Roger’s Us+Them film, Nick’s Saucerful live release, The Later Year box, David’s guitar auction and the mooted Animals 5.1 mix, Camp Floyd has more than enough to contend with and co-ordinate at the moment.

    True to an extent - but there was no 5-1 of The Wall, nothing from Final Cut, and nothing from Animals. So it's an incomplete view. I actually own all the Immersion Sets. I guess we're going to have to wait and see.

    It's my understanding the forthcoming Later Years box will only include the Gilmour Floyd era.

    The bootleg you saw was crappy video footage. Very few have seen the footage that was shot on 35mm film with the exception of Happiest Days which was featured on The Wall Immersion box.
    Yes, from the recently (at the time) discovered film footage of the shows.
    Unfortunately this release and thread will be of little or no interest to you.

    Posted on the AFG Forum, unconfirmed source so take this with a grain of salt. Also, keep in mind that DVDs and Blu-rays will most probably contain duplicate material. I'm assuming that the following was most likely leaked by a distributor.

    The TLY box contains about 20 compact cd's, dvd's and blu ray's and covers the period between the late 80's to these days. It relies mainly on image support rather than sound.

    So we roughly get the following:

    8 cd's
    AMLOR
    DSOT (2 cd)
    TDB (1 cd)
    Pulse (2 cd)
    Endless River
    B-sides


    That leaves 6 dvd's/BluRays:
    DSOT
    Venice
    Pulse
    AMLOR 5.1 plus videos
    TDB 5.1 plus videos
    Endless River 5.1 plus videos

    I think that this was a safe bet from the get-go. Roughly.
