Pink Floyd Pulse DVD/Bluray for 2022

Post by Keith Jordan »

https://www.neptunepinkfloyd.co.uk/pink ... -film-2022

On 18th February 2022, the Restored and Re-Edited version of Pink Floyd's P.U.L.S.E. concert film (shot on 20th October 1994 at London's Earls Court) is released as a 2 Blu-ray or 2 DVD deluxe box set, with the return of the flashing LED on the spine (as seen on the original 1995 CD release) powered by replaceable AA batteries! These deluxe packages include music videos, screen films, documentaries, rehearsal footage and more, along with a 60 page booklet.

In an interview from 1995, with Mojo Magazine, Nick Mason talked about the flashing LED. "Essentially, it's a device which we thought was entertaining. It's an idea of Storm Thorgerson's which related to Dark Side and the pulse, and it's a live album so the box is "alive". After that, in terms of seriously deep meanings, one might be struggling a bit."

I have the original Lazer Disc double disc dual sided release of this concert so was lucky enough to not loose VHS quality..

But why oh why re edit the thing.. What this time.. Cut the solo on comfortably numb.. Like Venis 1989.. Or cut money up like Venis 1989..

That was a real disappointment...

IMO the best edit of the concert is the 2006 DVD, yes there is some cool new angles but its not as good on certain songs as the DVD edit. High Hopes is the best cut on the 2006 DVD. Its good there is more shots of the band in the new edit.

you dont get this shot as well as its a quick cut


which edit do you find better overall


2006



2006

I would have sworn "Astronomy Domine" kicked off the original Pulse videotape I had. I could be confusing the videotape with the CD version, but I guess I am wrong since the forthcoming version of Pulse only has "Astronomy Domine" as an audio track. I definitely remember "Astronomy Domine" was the first track played at the concert I saw in Washington, DC...

The original CD had Astronomy Domine, What Do You Want From Me?, Hey You, and A Great Day For Freedom, which unfortunately are not on the DVD/BluRay. Would be better if this set included those on the Blu-Ray/DVD and also included a CD rather than having to try to find a way to extract the audio files!

They never played those songs when they recorded Pulse. You get Lost For Words & A Great Day For Freedom x2 as an extra from the rehearsal footage they pro-shot filmed that day. Good footage imo i agree would of been nice to get an extra live CD in TLY box set covering the other songs during the tour. Also Bootlegging the Bootleggers footage of Hey You and AD

i really can't stand this Gilmourian politics of "new release, add a minor new thing, but excludes something else from the older release"
this is annoying as hell!
just put all the stuff on a definitive version.
Why the hell excluding A Domine? Pfeeeh!

Astronomy Domine was never on any version of the video. What is missing from the new version is the "Bootlegging the Bootleggers" section.
