    I understand If they choose to avoid including this performance, but it would be nice to have as a historical document and just to have the complete show intact.

    True i agree with you there but i can't see it being included Money on the other hand potentially but again highly doubtful and i am not expecting it, would be a nice surprise if it was to show up seeing as that pro shot footage from Knebworth has never been seen before except on the big screens that night.

    I really want a disc full of all the TBS material / jams etc.
    Hearing David jamming on his red Strat is what made me fall in love with the band in the first place (that and the Venice concert), so that's what I'm most hoping for.

    Yes, more TBS jams, that's what would be nice. I actually prefer the original TBS 14 than what was actually put on TER.

    Venice has been on my wishlist to get a proper offical release the moment i got my bootleg DVD to be able to see it in superior picture quality and audio is a long time waiting for if it is finally included and released.

    I agree TBS 14 is better then what was put on TER

    Agreed, There's something very special about the Venice concert, and to me it's a highlight on that tour. The band plays very well and it seems like they all enjoy the show a lot. I've watched it quite a few times and I can't wait (hopefully) to watch it soon with the best possible audio and picture qualily :)

    You could be the first person anywhere to have actually played with those marbles. None of mine have even seen more than sixty seconds of daylight from the unwrap to the little string bag.

    I thought when it was broadcast that Rick was quite angry, the attack on the keys was very strong something that was watered down on the subsequent video/DVD

    I still believe there must be more from the Brighton '72 gig than what we got previously, but somehow doubt the full show exists.

    Any more info about this?

    My suggestions:
    - A Momentary Sound Of Division Bells
    - The Endless P.u.l.s.e Of Reason
    - 1986-2014
    - High Hopes: The Gilmour/Floyd Years

    My dad and uncle saw Floyd at what used to be the Pontiac Silverdome on Nov. 10, 1987. They say it was the best show they ever went to.

    I wish my dad was still here, this box would have really thrilled him.

    I read somewhere that the scarf and marbles were included to make counterfeiting the Immersion sets more complicated and that's the reason you occasionally get questionable additions to music box sets. That could be wrong of course but it seems to make sense.

    I can understand it if they do it that way. Nowadays they make cd sets in China that are very hard to distinguish from the Original. For example the Bowie box sets look the same, sound the same, are 20-25 % of the price in the rest of the world. The only difference is that the western version has a gold-like appearance.

    I half considered wearing the TDSOTM scarf when that box arrived, I put it on and asked the missus what she thought, she told me I looked a t*t, so back in the box it went, there it has stayed.

    I listened to The Momentary Lapse of Reason today for the first time in a long time.
    I hated it at first. Lack of Roger-ness must've been the reason, because he was the essence of Pink Floyd to me when I was exploring them.
    Now I made peace with this record, not necessarily as a PF album but more as a collaboration between Gilmour & Wright.
    My only remaining gripe with TMLOR is that almost all songs fade out. The 80's influence doesn't irk me, to be honest.

    They might include the new edit, as used at the Mortal Remains exhibition, which used more of the overhead camera (which included the otherwise almost completely omitted Rick) and a couple of shots of Rick from other footage (maybe the rehearsal?) layered over the top of other shots.

    You mean Gilmour & Mason? Wright came in very late and hardly plays on the album at all.

    True, although Mason doesn't play much either, IIRC. He and Gilmour did finance the whole thing I believe, and he can be heard reading flight data in 'Learning to Fly'.

    Nope, Wright. I know he wasn't a member of Floyd officially, and came in as a session musician later on, but his Hammond organ solos are what made this a Floyd album and not a Gilmour solo record.
    Wright's involvement was the only element reminiscent of Floyd I could recognize without reading the booklet.
    They did record On An Island together, later on, but that's another story. That's how I felt back then, and to an extent how I still feel about it.
