To fellow fan ‘Andrea’: go to http://www.floydpodcast.com, click cast 129;
After you hear that I’d be stunned if any ITF tour fan was not so moved, to then reward the guy that works so diligently to fill the empty space(s) that Floyd members/PFML – et al, etc., whomsoever – still drag their feet (trotters?!) to supply to all loyal fans, who ‘oh by the way’ indeed!!! have now patiently awaited 30+ years!!!!!! – with ‘official’ properly (education?) directed revenue generating versions!
So ‘something’ does incontrovertibly exist; it would just take a bit of effort/bloody care on behlaf of .. well, who?
Or seek out trib band ‘Wish you were here’ who list on their site that they once released (now sadly OOP) a faithful rendition of the Stateside ITF tours.
It’s all there – just need to faithfully seek it out.
Pity some ‘others’ are not so proud/dedicated/grateful (well, you add the most relevant adjective for current dearth of material …) to do the same after all these bloody years!!!!
Sorry; I do so much love the music of the combo of the Pink Floyd, but as to the approach of the members of said combo to their undoubted musical legacy (check how poster here, J.Skaggs, waxes lyrical on the SACD version of WYWH she was privileged to be invited to hear), well ….

@Bofsensai
Thanks again, as I said in another post, for the link.
I’m not much of a web searcher, so I wasn’t aware of it.
I can honestly say that it was quite interesting and rewarding to ‘immerge’ in some of those podcasts. Cheers :-)

[…] Wish You Were Here is the second Immersion box set to be issued as part of the Why? Pink Floyd campaign. The box itself is virtually identical to the Dark Side of the Moon box in terms of the goodies inside. So expect a scarf, more marbles, collectors’ cards, two booklets (one photos, one design and concepts), an art print (the ‘diver’ image), coasters and a few replica items. See full picture gallery here. […]

I picked up the box today… could have done yesterday, but then again I had a date and did not want to drag along such a nice gem.
Now listening to the bonus tracks CD and they sound amazing compared to the unoffical recordings I already had.

Robert

Great pictures Paul. Now going to read the Q&A with Andy J. :)

JB

Thanks for the pictures! I’m really looking forward to this set – having never heard any of WYWH in quad/surround – even though I’m still giving the TDSOTM set a lot of plays. The two completely different versions in that set are great – I wish there were more live or alternative versions here. That said, stereo, quad & 5.1 plus a disc’s worth of bonuses isn’t exactly skimping…

Dan Punch

I was really excited to see “Wine Glasses” from “Household Objects”. How does that sound???

Richard van Oosterhout

Are the lyrics for You’ve Gotta Be Crazy and Raving & Drooling printed in the artwork?

Andrea

Thanks! :-) I’ll certainly go for the Experience on this one, while I think I’ll get the Immersion-The Wall, featuring the live set I never bought before.

What I’d really, really, REALLY LOVE is an extended version of Animals, because that’s the best Pink Floyd EVER, in my opinion.
I’d really like to know if those ’77 “In the Flesh” tour soundboard recordings do actually exist, for instance… I’m a bit out of topic here, I realize…

Andrea

No, no email… Actually, I didn’t subscribe or asked or it… Is it possible?

Andrea A.

Same name, same opinions on marbles, scarves, Immersion boxes to buy and dream of, Animals album and live performances…
That’s really odd, Andrea!
Sorry if I went off topic, Paul.
:-)

Andrea

Yeah, INCREDIBLE, isn’t it?
Could it be, just making a wild guess here, that here we go AGAIN with another scarf, other marbles, etc etc?
Sorry for the OT.
Mine is my real name, at least ;-)

Andrea

Let’s hope there’s something consistent and interesting here music-wise, beside the usual set of gimmicks, coasters, scarfs, stickers, cards, marbles, etc.

Richard van Oosterhout

Hi Paul,

Just don’t loose those marbles, best to store them in the attic with the other toys ;)

(I may be Dutch but some English saying I know what it means.)

Richard van Oosterhout

Those clear marbles seem to reference to the absence in the overall theme of this album and artwork.

Archie Dalrymple

The I on the spine of the Wish You Were Here Immersion box seems to be the legs from “The Diver” image rather than a cigar…….
