    are these single-disc packs legit?

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Speaking personally I would have welcomed separate releases of just the CDs. Some of these have only one audio disc after all. And based on the hour-long preview the BBC did when this came out, I'm not sure I'd even want some of that TV footage!
    Well, I'll admit, a lot of it is them miming for TV. I thought it was cool to finally see the American Bandstand clip, and I remember seeing some of that Belgian TV footage on an MTV Rockumentary from circa 1989, so it was nice to finally see those uncut. But I can see how a lot of people might not dig it. But things like the Bouton Rouge footage and especially the KQED video, I think are awesome. I've had a bootlegged VHS copy of KQED for more than 20 years now, and it's nice to finally see it with full fidelity.

    A longer version of the KQED footage was discovered after the box was released. I think the extra track was 'Astronomy Domine'.

    I checked mine last night and one of my blu rays IS showing some discoloration/bubbling along one of the edges, so I'm definitely in for a replacement. Might wait another month or so first, just to see if any of the others start to show signs.

    Hope this helps!
    Thanks for that link. I just finally got around to checking my Early Years box and found that five of the eight blu-ray discs are showing signs of damage, from tiny "bubbles" in a couple spots around the outer edge to discoloration on a couple discs to one disc that looks like the backing is peeling off along half the disc's edge.

    I submitted a replacement request to the email address given in that brain-damage article. Has anyone gotten any response from them yet?

    thanks for taking the time to write that!
    You're welcome. I'm just glad someone actually found it useful.

    I haven't heard anything but in truth, I didn't expect to hear anything. Just assuming that sometime in February/March/April, new discs will appear in my mailbox.

    I was listening to this and at 01:30 couldn't help myself thinking of Soft Machine's We did it again...

    anyone else hears the resemblance and would care to comment ?

    Thanx

    Sure. I don't have a guitar handy so can't confirm if they're in the same key or not, but to me the similarity is there... but it's not huge. I believe the Floyd version is a 2-note pattern in cut time (ba-DUM, ba-DUM, etc.) while the SM version is a 4/4 riff (ba-DA-DA-ba-DAH).
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    well,not sure I'm hearing (outside the slmilar manic drumming), but Floyd and the Softies shared the stage a few times

    One would have to see who influenced who in this case
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    I got an email back a few days after I sent in my replacement request, and it just said some variation of "Due a to high volume of requests, there will be a delay in processing your email."

    Then a few days after that I got an email saying that I had to submit pictures of the damaged discs...which I already had with the first email. But I emailed the pictures again. Haven't heard anything since that.

    At this point, I'm not real hopeful about actually getting replacements.

    On the other hand, as time permits I've been watching the discs that have the "bubbling" issue and so far they still seem to play OK. Who knows how long that will last though.

    Well, looks like I was wrong. I just got this email:

    I have no idea what "Euro Megastore Eurostore" is, but it looks like they're shipping me the replacement blu-rays.

    in case anyone is curious... I bought the Reverber/ation stand-alone box and the Meddle 5.1 easter egg was not on the bluray

    they fixed the mistake
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Given that I just got the boxset a few months ago, I wonder if my version has it. What disc is it suppsoed to be on? Is it only on the Blu-Ray?

    supposedly on the Bluray but needs to be extracted as opposed to seeing it when you play the BR

    I think that was 'corrected' on the stand-alone pressings- as in, removed.

    I only have the Syd Barrett one. Quite remarkable that around an hour of footage exists for what was a relatively short lived period as a recording band. A big find was the TOTP 'See Emily Play' which was found around 2009, on a ragged video recording of the full episode. The tape was apparently made by a 'rock star', FWIW.
