    Wow, is that poster still available?? Don't think so but I can ask. How big is this beauty?

    A few pages before, i asked, if there is a longer version of round and round from AMLOR.....

    Some people thought that this is not serious...

    We have checked that and the source for that is Vernon Fitch...

    I look at that now as an opportunity.
    Release a curated BBC set with the stereo 'In concerts' where mono was used, and make some Broad claims about newly discovered better generation masters, and include anything that was missed. Maybe include some TV stuff on DVD or Blu Ray complete BBC sessions.

    Maybe even release it for the respective charities of the band members so winners all round

    No it's not available anymore. If it has been, it likely was a repo or maybe a rare original that went for a pretty penny.

    The original poster is listed at being approx 17x26in

    Funny thing is, it was the later period of Pink Floyd that really made me a fan...well, starting with the Wall, anyway. But at one point I liked AMLoR better than DSotM. (I’m no longer of that opinion, mind you.) For a long time, I looked at their earlier stuff as more a curiosity than anything I’d really listen to frequently.

    Nowadays, I’m almost the reverse...I can listen to something like More or Obscured by Clouds repeatedly, but AMLoR is a curiosity and an example of nostalgia. As in, “huh, THIS used to blow my mind?” TEY was really instrumental in me reconsidering their pre-Dark Side stuff.

    All that said, I’ll still probably buy whatever this ends up being. Or, it will make a fine item to add to the Christmas list.

    Maybe we should all rest in silence then, and wait for the official announcement.

    Or maybe we can just stay on topic and discuss this release? Wanna speculate about a Middle Years box? Then start a thread on it.

    Let's discuss...

    I will ask this again:

    What do you think? Does the new AMLOR remix has more changes than drums and keyboards? For example sorrow with ending like the live version...

    Ohhh... That would be awesome. Years ago I edited a version of Sorrow to end like that. I just can't get past the uninspired drum machine though. I can't wait to hear it with real drums. The live versions have always been my go-to for a Sorrow fix.

    Another question:

    Does anybody think that David Gilmour changes any of his parts...vocals or guitar

    I think that some drums were rerecorded and only a few synths replaced. Not everything is being changed. I don't think that they'll change the end of Sorrow or any other song for that matter.
    No. I seriously doubt that this will be the case.

    I thought, that they dropped every old drum part that Mason did not play...

    Can you explain "prerecorded" in other words, please.

    Perhaps they use an old demo and play new overdubs... i'm dreaming...

    It was a type-o that I corrected.

    Hmm, I was hoping that Rick's intro to On The Turning Away would be mixed in, I read somewhere he recorded one but it wasn't used. It's a highlight for me in live versions.

    If there is no original studio album in the box.... do we get roundabout 50 minutes of demos from Division Bell tracks...?

    I never heard of outtakes (minus endless river tracks). Does anybody know if any tracks from Rick Wright's Broken China were originally from the Division Bell sessions?

    Ok, so AMLOR won't be radically re-recorded like Bowie's 2018 version of Never Let Me Down (which I like BTW), but instead have more minor adjustments. I'm looking forward to it!

    Ha. Yeah. I forgot about that, although for the hidden Meddle mixes, rather than an issue of quality control, it seems an awful lot like someone wanted the powers that be to think it had been removed but wanted fans to find it. I’ll take it. At the end of day we only missed out on one of the new mixes - OBC 5.1.

    Yes, I agree with this. I mean if they're flying in some of Rick's synths anyway, I don't see why they wouldn't include this too. It's definitely a nice intro to the piece.

    The early 1987 shows had some really good long intros from Rick on OTTA and additional sync sound effects on the intro to LTF

    It's just an amazing song :)
    Actually I would love to hear Gilmour do it with a full orchestra and choir! Lots of voices for the last verse. Could sound amazing if done right.
    Btw did anyone spot the On The Turning Away reference in live renditions of Gilmours In Any Tongue :)

  25. Why yes. "On The Turning Away" could definitely sound great with a choral arrangement... :cool:
