I still prefer the original LD cover.
When is this coming out? Last year I had heard March 2003. Now I'm not hearing anything... If the cover art is out, how much longer can it be for the disc?
The cover is okay, but a little too ethnic for my taste. There are plenty of shots from the film that better convey the content, such as the huge equipment display, reminiscent of the aircraft armorment displays from National Geographic in the 1970s.
I would like a release update. I had hoped to have this already.
This is from the same site where the pic came from:
It's the Floyd and to me that's all that counts!
I love Pink Floyd, but havn't seen this! Is it just a concert preformed at Pompei or what?
Any word on whether mono, stereo, etc., or if there'll be a PCM track?
Pink Floyd at Pompeii is basically two documentaries in one. About half of it is in the recording studio recording Darkside of the Moon (Dave does a great guitar part for Eclipse that never made it to record or was way buried in the mix). Some of it is them in a canteen (diner) eating and talking. The bulk of it is recorded live at an ancient ampitheater in Pompeii (no audience). The tracklist is:
Echoes Part 1
Carefull With That Axe Eugene
A Saucerful Of Secrets
One Of These Days...
Set The Control For The Heart Of The Sun
Echoes Part 2
That description has made me more impatient of this release. I need it now!
Pompeii is better IMO than a straight live performance, as the staging really adds to the atmosphere. The studio footage and interviews are priceless.

Somebody on Usenet mentioned that this artwork is from the 'Mind Over Matter' book and was taken from a previously planned version of the disc which may not be the one that sees light of day.
I am skeptical of a disc coming out by April or May.
I'm dying here. I need this DVD. Has anyone found a place taking pre-orders. So far, I haven't had any luck checking with the usual suspects.
Now they've got menus up:
looks like no commentary track
In a concert DVD, there isn't really any difference between a "commentary" and an "interview".
I can't imagine a concert DVD commentary talking about what was going on at the moment - "Now there's that chord - I told Roger that really should be an A-flat diminished, but he wouldn't hear of it... "
PS I assume that in the Features: "Original Concert Film" must mean the trailer?
I think the concert film is the non directors cut, ie no interviews. I think a commentary is warranted, as it culd talk about the locations, the ideas behind the songs, trivia, instrumentation, recollections of the experience...
While a missed opportunity, especially given the impact of the album they were recording at the time, I'll be happy just having the film on DVD.
According to Brain Damage online, the Pompeii DVD has been delayed yet again, to June.
On the brighter side, the same web site also says that there is yet another Pink Floyd documentary coming out around the same time with footage of Dark Side of the Moon in concert in the early 70s, either 1972 (when Floyd first began playing DSOTM) or 1973 (after the album was released).
There is a PF promo video on the web site for the DSOTM SACD which includes some of this concert footage. Amazing!
