    Hi all!

    Is an official blu-ray likely? If so, when might it come?

    Or is a blu-ray just wishful thinking?

    As I've posted before :wave:

    Pink Floyd - The Wall Live DVD

    this is taken for "Comfortably Numb - A History of The Wall", by our great member Vernon Fitch and Richard Mahon. p244

    "... Lamden also edited The Wall concert videos that were shot at Earls Court in August of 1980. These videos were sent to Lamden in Los Angeles for editing right after the concerts, along with soundboard audio recordings of the shows. (...) Despite the problems, Lamden edited together a complete two-hour Wall live video, compiled from all the videos he received. Asked about this Wall video in 2004, Lamden stated 'The video is broadcast quality, and the audio feed, straight from James Guthrie's board, is excellent'.

    In 2003, all the Wall films in Roger Waters' possession were documented and archived for Waters by Nick Thompson, a film editor who worked with Waters on his solo live shows. When asked, in August 2004, if there were any plans to release the live Wall films, Waters said 'that could happen. I've been looking at some of the material over the last couple of weeks. It finally appeared out of the midsts of time from mixing and editing suite in Los Angeles and it doesn't look too bad. I think it's quite interesting historical document, so yeah, I think it will definitely become available at some point quite soon

    Thanks for reposting your valuable information.

    Unfortunately we know that when Roger Waters says "some point quite soon" that we are probably in for a very long wait :cry:.

    I'm sure that many would snap up The Wall Live on blu-ray - even though the picture is only SD it should sound incredible in hi-res (and maybe it would be remixed into 5.1).

    Then there is all that film Roger was given after Steve O'Rourke passed away, a sample of this can been seen on the Immersion boxset.

    If he ever does an official release, I just hope Sean and Nigel are nowhere near it!!!

    Surprise.... The video has been removed.

    For those who saw this video, was it the same as the DVD "Divided We Fall – The Wall Live at Earls Court"?

    If it's the Harvested release Divided We Fall, it's easily obtainable in PF trading circles.

    If they removed the video because and official release it's coming, fine!

    But if they removed the video just because, it's the most stupid thing.

    I just watched the youtube video and while the video quality was terrible I was impressed on how close the music was to the original source material.
