It is indeed one, but you have an excuse ;)

If this box were to be issued on vinyl, I'd be tempted.
you should be able to buy all the original vinyls, even the hard-to-find ones, for much less than $250-
$5- apiece for the common ones, a little bit more for the first three, between $70- and $100- tops

Ho hum.
Yeah, I SUPPOSE it would be nice to have the vinyl album artwork to go along with the disks, but let's face it here, this is NOT what we hard core fans want, period.
It would have been better to have the artwork packaged with the individual albums when they were remastered instead.
Also, it would have been even nicer for them to release "Atom Heart Mother" and "Wish You Were Here" as either SACD or DVD-Audio, since those were the only other two albums that had quad mixes made at the time they were put together.

What the band SHOULD have done instead?
Plenty, as it turns out.

1) Finally drop that piggish refusal to release the BBC sessions.
Yeah, Meddled/Mooed music sound great, but they would be better still direct from the masters with no FM broadcast material to fill in the gaps.

2) Some live soundboards, especially from The Man & The Journey/More/AHM/Meddle/OBC era.

3) It would be just great to have some soundboards from their "In the Flesh" tour, "Mr. Pig" notwithstanding.

4) Video footage from some of their old shows.

5) "Vegetable Man" and "Scream Thy Last Scream," since Syd is no longer alive.

6) Outtakes, demos, and rare live performances, such as "Sysyphus," "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast," and "Main Theme."

7) Quit these rehashes of existing material, since the fans who would be motivated to purchase an expensive box set ALREADY HAVE ALL THEIR OFFICIAL RELEASES, OFTEN SEVERAL TIMES OVER WITH REMASTERS INCLUDED!
:(

Yeah, that's about it for now.

EMI PRESS RELEASE!!!!!!! Pink Floyd Boxset




We are re-releasing Pink Floyds entire back catalogue we will re-release all their albums in a boxset at a big sum of money. Then in Feburary we will re-release all the albums again seperatly all the original remasters from 1994 2003-07. With the great extra feature new fantastic artwork (which is basically what the remasters are worth buying for nothing else) No new bonus songs or rare outtakes demos or alternate versions of songs. This boxset is worth getting if your in need of new floyd artwork.

A must have for any floyd fan even if you have numerous versions of the albums already add this to your collection.

The boxset was going to have a dvd included but our dvd machine was burning James Blunt concert dvds that day so buy that instead..

EMGI = EAGER MONEYGRABBING IDOITS

I was just saying, I need some more Floyd artwork! I could put some of these things up at my desk at work, and get extra CDs as a bonus in case my others wear out by being played too much...somehow....

I'm getting the feeling Storm is behind all these releases and not Pink Floyd ;)

Thanks. Bookmarked. The Gladstone Hotel would have been very convenient.
