from an extremely reliable source close to the band, the completion of "Wish You Were Here" on SACD is almost done!

i wonder if they will do "Animals" next? Posted Image Posted Image

The new article on Brain damage which mentions this SACD news says that pulse has been delayed again till mid year. Posted Image
After all this, Pulse better be the best concert DVD of all time.

Every night I dream of someday having all of the glory years Floyd (plus Atom Heart Mother and Meddle) on SACD surround...

Let's hope they get a move on with Animals and The Wall

This is great news. I reported on it at Steve Hoffman.

Can you give us a hint as to who your source is or how they know for certain?

Joe and Sandy over at www.pinkfloyd-co.com

they have had a personal relationship with the band for over 30 years now...the most reliable source of legitimate information along with www.brain-damage.co.uk

Great news.

Fabulous. Contains one of my favourite Floyd pieces, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, which I'm sure you aficionados would agree is, like the already-released DSotM, a prime candidate for a rocking multichannel mix. Heck, most of Floyd's material is...

Can't wait. However, coming just about 2 years after DSotM, I have to say I sure hope they pick up the pace a bit!! If any band should have their entire catalog in surround, it's Pink Floyd.

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Classic Floyd on SACD is great news.
Presumably this is intended for a 30th Anniversary re - issue, like DSOTM ?

Maybe, but I hope that's not the norm for future releases -- I do not want to wait till 2009 for The Wall. Even 2008 for Animals would be a painful wait. And what about Meddle?

Although I guess Pulse will be released as a 10th Anniversary Edition?

Have you guys noticed that DVD's of Pulse and Delicate Sound of Thunder has been showing up on ebay as an overseas release? It claims to be legitimate, no copies and in Dolby Digital 5.1. The only thing that sucks is that it's in 4:3. Well, what the heck, Rush in Rio is too and I don't hear too many complaints on that Posted Image
