The Later Years: 1987-2019 Tracklist:
Does anyone want unreleased demos and remixed live tracks from Pink Floyd? Look, I love PF as much as anyone. I own every single album (except The Final Cut, because no thanks) but come on! Who greenlit this nonsense compilation? Why not do a Dylanesque Bootleg Series-style release for every period of Floyd’s career? Or a Beatlesque re-release/modern remix of their biggest albums, complete with books and outtakes? Do that for DSOTM, WYWH and Animals and I will buy every single one. But don’t go down the “contractually-obligated Odd’s n’ Sods Album” route, please. Nobody asked for it.
For those who think there is nothing new here I suggest you take a listen and you’ll see these are different mixes more along the lines of what Gilmore wanted initially. I for one am thankful!!!
I wish Pink Floyd would do a reunion. Stupid Roger and David always fighting. Maybe one day. Until then, the producer from Have a Cigar owns all the music and will just sell it to us fifteen times over.
I find myself thirsty for anything Pink Floyd. Here at the end of the road, i’m still wishing for more. I find myself, so desperate clinging to hope this path, Will continue on. Remixes, New version, recordings of versions we have not heard, I absolutely love it. I saw others called it a money grab, I don’t agree, Pink Floyd is giving me exactly what I want, & isn’t being a personal band about giving the fans your art, while making some money? Take my money, please keep producing this Wonderful Music, I am begging.
Great concept: 'The Later Years'. Without Roger. Excpet that half the album (most of the tracks with lyrics) are songs that he wrote or co-wrote. There's better stuff in the vault like Roger's complete Wall demos. The Wall concerts they filmed and recorded at Earl's Court. Something, anything from the '77 tour.
people would not complain. As a die hard deadhead I love new releases from them, as do I with these new versions of Floyd gems. Most new bands are lame to me . Thank God I grew up on Great Music!!! Open the vault and continue to share . Pink Floyd will never be duplicated , Ever!!
