Who owns this 2016 remaster? better than first uk pressings ?

Ah - let’s hope (against expectation) that it’ll eventually be released separately. You never know - give the box set a year to sell as many as it’s going to, then release separately to mop up everyone else like me who’s got slightly higher priorities for four monkeys. Or is it ponies? Alpacas, maybe?

No @frenchrooster. In terms of vinyl, my preferences are:

  1. UK pressings 1 to 4 (1973/4)
  2. 1997 EMI Centenary version
  3. 2016 version (much better than the 2011 version)
  4. Japanese Toshiba-EMI Pro-Use from 1976

This would appear to be what’s in the box. Full details and tracklist will be released this Friday…

That’s about right Kevster, those early UK versions sound better than those that have been released afterwards.

In terms of the box set prices have become like footballers salaries, a complete joke.

I will wait and see how the prices move but will probably pick up at some point.

Don’t think I’ll be rushing in, I agree with most these are not what I call great Pink Floyd albums.

I suspect these will be available at Poundland in a year or so.


Funny, isn’t it, how tastes vary! Whilst Ummagumma to me is interesting rather than involving, and I rarely play it, AHM, particularly the title track, is a perennial favourite, while I think Hitchhiking is really good, albeit eclipsed by some others.


Interesting Kevin. I have the 2016 issue, but I’m guilty of not having opened it and played it yet. I think I also have the EMI Centenary issue too, but can’t recall whether I rated it or not.

One of the few early MFSLs that I kept was the DSOTM original 1979 issue. I’ve had hot and cold moments with this one over the years, but the last time I played it on the Rega, it moved up a few notches for me and could well be a contender for top spot with a nice HTM UK cut.

I also need to have another listen to the 2003 30th Anniversary Kevin Gary Acoustech issue. I seem to recall that when I first played it back then I wasn’t so impressed.

This truly is a thread for obsessives! Great entertainment and a peek into a universe I never realised existed until I bought Naim and joined this forum. I honestly thought this degree of obsession only ever applied to trainspotters and model railway hobbyists! How wrong I was.


It’s OK but not fantastic @Richard.Dane.

Timmo, trust me, this is kindergarten stuff compared to the obsessiveness you’ll find in some other places. But the main thing is, the intentions are hopefully all good - to help everyone sort the vinyl wheat from the chaff (see applicable thread in the Music Room on this forum).


OK, thanks. A shame, but that’s what I thought. I guess I should unwrap that 2016 issue and give it a listen…

I love it Richard, and it’s all good, harmless fun. I’ve actually picked up some great tips for nice recordings that haven’t cost the earth, and as many have said, if it’s not your interest, scroll on by! Apart from the occasional blip, I find this to be a nice, friendly, informative forum, even for the more casual owner/user like myself.

What’s the 2-LP version going to retail at?

Dunno - around £22-£25 maybe?

I think I wasn’t being fair to AHM - I don’t mind the title track and sometimes play it to make a dull train journey go by. My real ‘target’ was Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast; similarly with Ummagumma the live disk gets played, but I’ve only ever playes the studio disk once - I really do find it codswallop, but that’s personal opinion for you.

AMLOR reminds me of my student days (and all that entails) so sits better with me than it obviously does with Kevster, but I can hear what he doesn’t like about it and see his point of view. I think The Division Bell is a fair follow up to Obscured By Clouds; my biggest grumble about it is actually Gilmour’s guitar work which seems below par and to just peter off into nothingness on just about every track.

I think I’m the only person who likes Radio KAOS - like AMLOR it has a sense of ‘life’ to it that many 80s productions have/had and while they both may be seen now as failed experiments at least both sides tried to do something different. I still think I’d grade The Endless River as ‘Must try harder’

No there’s two of us, it’s be a bit of a fav since it’s release. :+1:

You can make that three. Also really enjoyed the live show of the KAOS album at Wembley Arena, maybe helped by having fourth row tickets that we only got as returns at the last minute as originally we weren’t intending to go. Did the album live very well with the radio dj in a booth at the side of the stage with the full album interspersed with Floyd classics and Andy Fairweather Low doing a fine job on guitar.
