The Later Years Speculation

Post by theaussiefloydian » Tue Oct 29, 2019 3:47 pm

This is honestly less of a speculation and more of a hope, but here goes.
I'm hoping that the contents of The Later Years are later sold individually, and I have a reason to consider that a possibility.
When The Early Years box set dropped, it took some time but eventually each of the parts of the box sets (Cambrige St/ation, Reverber/ation, etc) were sold individually, albeit expensively. If they did that for The Early Years, surely they'll do the same with The Later Years?
And if they did that, I have a speculation on how they would be sold:
  • Remixes (AMLoR remix and the Blu-Ray of the high definition mixes)
  • Delicate Sound of Thunder (the CDs and the Blu Ray)
  • Knebworth (the CD of Knebworth and the Blu Ray containing Knebworth and Venice)
  • Other Live Recordings (the CD of live recordings, and the PULSE film)
  • Other (the Blu-Rays of concert films and music videos)

It would be great if that happened. There are some people who can afford the very expensive box set in its total, but most of us will not find it accessible. It would, however, be nice to be able to access the favourite parts! 8)

This what I'm praying for as well. I have toyed with the idea of splashing out for this boxset, but after buying The Early Years and being very unhappy with the product as a whole, I just can't justify the price.

I'm also hoping they add all the remixes and audio stuff to Spotify, which they did for The Early Years. Quite frankly the only thing from the boxset I'm really interested in is the Blu-Ray releases of Pulse and The Delicate Sound of Thunder.

We will see... [-o<

Yep, me too. I have all of the contents of the Early Years set from there, though if I ever see Reverber/ation in a record store I'll pick it up
