Pink Floyd's PULSE DVD & WYWH SACD updates Print E-mail

We spoke with Pink Floyd's management (PFM) today, to find out the latest on the long-anticipated release on DVD of the live concert video, PULSE, and on 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!).

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

We spoke with PFM today to find out the latest on the release. In an effort to ensure that this is as good a release as possible, every aspect is being checked closely. As part of this, additional work is being done to upgrade the picture quality. The good news is that the work on this was completed last Friday.

They are now reviewing all the content (the extras which are to be packed onto this set) to select the best possible. Having talked about some of the proposed extras with PFM, there's some interesting and unusual stuff that looks likely to end up on the finished product.

With this additional work, a revised date is now being worked out. Whilst they couldn't commit to a firm date, the middle of this year is now looking realistic. They do realise that this may disappoint you, but assure us that it is only being done to make sure the final release of this is the best that they can provide.

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 pro port to be official limited edition pressings from a few years back.

The full surround mixing of the 1975 album Wish You Were Here is ongoing. 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 probably 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.

As and when we have more information on both of these, we will of course let you know... and our thanks to PFM for the update!
