What are you talking about mate? My previous post was filled with levity.
Publication of this mix was deliberately snuffed-out over 30 years ago!! And then the way Sony hijacked the 5.1 remix for SACD was a disgrace (as was the way in which Alan Parsons' know-how was sidelined).
The 5.1 re-mix was per Pink Floyd's wishes, which included having Guthrie finally do the mix that the band originally wanted (note that Parson' exclusion was at the band's request, not Sony's). That's not hijacking, it's just allowing the original artists their freedom.
You can justify theft any way you want, but the DVD-A is an illegal bootleg; a fact that is made obviously clear from the link you
posted. For the record, I haven't told anyone not to get it or listen to it; just stated the facts. Sorry but I can't play the pretend game with you. I mean, if you're going to promote piracy, then for heaven's sake lighten up and be honest about it.
