My source, who is close to this matter, said they are not aware of this release date. 8-[

If the track listing is accurate it’s a crime that Pigs on the Wing (Parts 1 and 2) isn’t included as well as at least some cleaned up live content.

I agree, Pigs on the Wing (2:48) as a single song, combining two parts and bridging them together with a guitar solo performed by Snowy White, the version that only came out on the 8-track cartridge release, should have been included here.

How? Perhaps as a bonus one-sided 7" (with some pig related etching art on the flip side) with the LP edition. Mini single track 3" CD would be nice for the rest.

That is really the only bonus I can think of here.

Considering the band lament they didn't film or record live shows, the lack of 8 track Pigs On The Wing is a bit over an oversight to say the least!

Luckily, it is available on CD already, since 1995, on Snowy White’s compilation album Goldtop (Track 5, see: https://www.discogs.com/master/1178815- ... -Sessions-)

I'll believe it when it's in my hot little hands.

Been burned on this one a couple of times, already. Not a good look, guys.

I dunno, I got an email from the Official Pink Floyd Store confirming the 16 September date with a pre order link for the website, and when they set a date it always follows through.

Yeah, but after 20 years of doubting everything, it'd be out of character for me not to, right? ;)

I put my preorder down on this one.

I'm not 100% sure that I even need it, but here I am right?
