This thing has been talked about since the advent of DVD...I'll believe it when I actually have a copy in my hands

Floyd Pulse DVD update

So, is this thing finally going to see the light of day?

PINK FLOYD PULSE DVD FINALLY ANNOUNCED

Pink Floyd's PULSE
coming on DVD...finally!
The long-awaited, and much delayed, 2DVD release of Pink Floyd's PULSE has finally been announced. To hit the stores on 5th December (with slight variation to this date depending on country), the discs have been filled with some interesting additional material.

PULSE is a recording from the band's run of 14 shows at London's Earl's Court, the final full concerts performed (to date). A lot of work has been done to improve the sound and picture quality, and to source a selection of suitable extras.

Along with the DVD menus and screens, the DVD cover has been designed by Storm Thorgerson, and will be a variation on the "balls" picture used to promote the 2003 Interstellar exhibition in Paris. It is a suitably intriguing image, similar to that shown in Storm's book "Mind Over Matter" but with some important differences. Brain Damage had a sneak preview of the cover last December, and it is nicely designed, front and back.

Pink Floyd's well-respected engineer James Guthrie has been the man looking after the surround sound mixes, and the new, Dolby Digital 5.1 remastered soundtrack reportedly sounds superb.

We know that you'll want to know what's been included, so without further delay, here's the detail:


DISC 1

Concert Part 1:
Shine On
Learning To Fly
High Hopes
Take It Back
Coming Back To Life
Sorrow
Keep Talking
Another Brick In The Wall (part 2)
One of These Days

Screen Films:

High Hopes
Learning to Fly

Bootlegging the Bootleggers:
What Do You Want From Me
On The Turning Way
Poles Apart

Shorts:

Speak To Me 1987
Pulse TV Advert

Videos:
Learning To Fly
Take It Back

DISC 2

Concert Part 2:
Speak To Me
Breathe
On The Run
Time
The Great Gig In The Sky
Money
Us And Them
Brain Damage
Eclipse
Wish You Were Here
Comfortably Numb
Run Like Hell

Screen Films:
Speak To Me (graphic)
On The Run
Time 1994
The Great Gig in the Sky (wave)
Money
Us And Them 1987
Brain Damage
Eclipse

Alternate Screen Films:
The Great Gig In The Sky (animation)
Us And Them 1994

Behind the Scenes Footage:
Goodbye to Life As We Know It

Wish You Were Here:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Photo Gallery
It's very interesting to see how all the screen films have been included on the DVDs. This is something that many fans have been keen to see. From our point of view, it's great to see that the Money alien film is included - few people seem to have heard of this hilarious alternate version, and this is their chance to see it.

"Bootlegging The Bootleggers" seems to be a way at getting back at those who release unauthorised footage of the band in action - as we understand it, they have sourced audience-shot material of these tracks for inclusion. Ironically, Pulse is one of the biggest bootlegged titles on DVD, with loads appearing on eBay and other online sites each day.

With behind the scenes footage, a photo gallery, and the band's performance at the US Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony back in 1996, this new release promises to be a very interesting collection of material.

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.

This new edition can be ordered, with a discount, through the following special links: Amazon UK/Europe, or Amazon Germany. Ordering details for other countries should be here shortly...

Question about Pink Floyd: Pulse DVD Concert

I just picked up this DVD yesterday and was skimming through some of the tracks and noticed that Roger Waters wasn't on vocals during the concert. His part on Comfortably Numb sounded awful with the 3 guys covering for him.

Did he leave the band during that time? I noticed this concert was shot back in 1994. I've only recently gotten into their music. I know back in 2005 when he performed with them in Live 8 they made a big deal about his return.

There is some chat on the comparative merits of the various DVDs here:

Live-wise, I've heard people commend Roger Waters "In the Flesh" and Floyd's "Pompeii". I own the former (unplayed, like most of my dvds) and anticipate buying the latter.

Wow! Unplayed? Water's DVD is awesome. OK - it's not FLoyd but it's bloody enjoyable all the same!

Good luck. I know the feeling. I seem to be always playing 'catch up'.
