    PINK FLOYD'S PULSE DVD & WYWH SACD UPDATES

    Pink Floyd's PULSE
    coming on DVD...soon
    Last week, we (along with Col Turner, from our sister site A Fleeting Glimpse) had a meeting with Pink Floyd's management (PFM). In a long discussion that covered much ground (including the Live 8 reunion), we asked what was the latest on the long-anticipated release on DVD of the live concert video, PULSE, and the status of the Wish You Were Here SACD, both of which are keenly awaited (judging by the amount of emails we receive about them each week!).

    PULSE DVD
    The last we reported was that a rough date of September/October this year was set, for the 2-disc DVD to hit the stores.

    When we arrived at PFMs office, coincidentally enough, the band's manager was on the phone to James Guthrie, discussing the documentary that is due to be amongst the extras. It appears that there are a few issues with the documentary that need to be ironed out before the discs can be considered finished and ready to press up for an eager public.

    They are very aware how sought after this release is, and also want to make sure it is as good as it can be. Whilst they know that many fans would buy it without any extras on, they know that a greater number would demand extras to be present. So whilst the main feature is now ready, the extras just need a little extra work to finish them off.

    They are hoping that it can still be released later this year, but in an effort to manage expectations, warn that it is not guaranteed. It may slip into the early part of next year.

    It is worth reiterating that any versions of Pulse currently being offered on DVD in various places worldwide, are all fakes. This includes copies that proport to be official limited edition pressings from a few years back.

    WISH YOU WERE HERE - SACD
    The full surround mixing of the 1975 album Wish You Were Here is almost finished. Doing any work like this takes time to ensure it is right, and provides the best possible audio experience, but PFM confirm that we are certainly looking at the end of this year for a release of the album in hybrid CD/SACD (Super Audio CD) format.

    With James Guthrie at the controls, the quality of this should be very high, and worth waiting for - and the feedback we have had for his work on Dark Side Of The Moon has been uniformly positive

    Yeah, cheers for that. I had been wondering when they'll be out. I had assumed that WYWH would be out by the end of the year (to coincide with the 30th anniversary), but it is no surprise that Pulse is still lagging behind. I don't think ANYONE should expect to see it this year, and just look forward to having it sometime in 2006 :cool:

    Back to WYWH - I checked to see when DSOTM came out on SACD as it was billed as the "30th Anniversary Edition" and note that it came out 30 years and one day after the original ... if the same where to happen with WYWH the release date would be 16th September 2005 :eek: - Is that too much to wish for ? :D
    Yours with baited breath ... Paul ;)

    I suspect it's going to be next year now for Pulse on dvd.

    I heard the main feature was completed but that there was a legal hold up on one of the documentaries.

    The band seem absolutely determined that this release is the best it possibly can be. Admirable but frustrating for us fans who've been waiting since 2003 for something to turn up.......

    I still keep playing the two videos, which are now wafer thin. I hope i'm still around when it's released.

    WYWH can't wait, college and uni memories. I still don't know which is my most loved floyd album but it's close between WYWH and Animals, and both should be around sooner or later.

    Just received Pulse CD today and love it, love it, love it !!!

    The excitment prompted me to play my original DSOT VHS tape. Apart from wondering how we ever managed with VHS quality, I am now soooo looking fwd to the Pulse DVD.

    Suspect this almost needs to be a sticky thread until some concrete news comes through.
