I get the low volume guitar solely in the right surround channel starting at 0:17, then the "fuller" guitar starts in the fronts at 0:59.

Re: Animals 5.1. Some of the interviews with James Guthrie indicated that the masters were in poor shape and that the tapes were lower audio quality than WYWY or DSOTM. So I do not expect much in the way of an expanded package.

I wonder why Echoes from 1974 Wembley was not released? They made a few errors, but overall it is a cool performance (with extra female vocalists and sax).

Agree that the 1977 Animals tours was good. Saw it in Oakland also. I don't remember if I was there the night they played Careful with That Axe Eugene. That was the tour where Roger got so irritated with fans that at one point he spit on them from the stage.

Officially just canceled my order for the Wall Immersion set. Just not worth it. If they would have at least done 2 channel hi-res I would have went for it. Makes no sense not to have this considering the recent remaster.

I think 1977 was the height of the crappy tape period, so perhaps that is what Guthrie meant (although I'm sure there are work-arounds).

Fortunately there is a very good RIO of Echoes '74 - but it would be nice to get an official version.

Yes, Oakland was where they played Eugene, and for the final time. It is actually quite funny to go onto youtube and hear recordings of Waters' cursing at the audience for lighting off firecrackers, etc. With the benefit of 30 years of hindsight, I find myself in complete agreement with his sentiments.

Don't worry, Guthrie has said there's a 5.1 mix in the works.
It may take another 5 years, my guess is same time next year, but I think they've sold enough from this go round to hopefully, finally realize that there's a decent market for this.
I'm huge Floyd fan but I never bought The Wall in any format but I definitely would buy a hi-res surround of this or any other PF album, in any format physical or otherwise.

Milt;

Never owned The Wall. The only question for me is how many times I somehow gave in to consumerism and purchased "an upgrade". This applies to all Floyd albums BTW. A sorry statement about my gullibility.

Don't be so hard on yourself.
You're in good company

Should explain that I was repeating Milt's comment in my recent post.

Yes, I have owned many versions of the Wall. LP, then CD, DVD of Movie, Live CD, etc. etc.

That was in L.A. just before the Oakland show. Used to have a bootleg of that concert and Roger told the crowd "stop fighting, if you don't stop fighting we aren't going to play". The crowd at Oakland was respectful and were well under control during the quieter passages, and the band was pleased and so they played Eugene as a bonus encore for the only time that tour and never again since.

I believe that tour was the motivation for Roger to write the Wall. I really enjoyed that Oakland show and will never forget it.

Anybody snag the immersion version of the Wall? Any thoughts?

Spitting incident occurred during the last show, Olympic Stadium in Montreal, early July 1977. Crowd was very ugly, although most of the crowds on the tour weren't well behaved.

Maccur's post seems on track.

The Oakland show was pretty much a normal rock audience. I gather that this was the exception on the tour.

Wow, the bootleg I had was from a show in Aneheim on 5/7/77, so I guess that means there were problems at multiple venues...

I don't think you come up with the concept of "The Wall" to keep your fans separated from you over one single incident...

To me, the thought of an "ugly crowd" at a Pink Floyd show is an abomination.

Here is a link to a very interesting video with James Guthrie on The Missing Piano on the WYWH SACD.

Fascinating. I also really enjoyed Storm's commentary on the album cover, and his "crummy pictures".

Back then, Floyd drew in all sorts of riff raff. Nowadays, they are nearly exclusive to yacht-rock favoring conservative dads.
