[QUOTE=AK'z;37919925]i thought you people were talking about LPs, I ain't seen shit all for those. but yeah the CDs are easy to find in most music stores, his music gets repressed often.[/QUOTE] Still my store had an LP for Opel I think at one point? but you're right, they're much less common. That's why I collect CDs mostly as opposed to Vinyl. I think I have like 6 vinyl. In Australia especially CDs are so much cheaper and easier to find.
honestly... you could get the entire Pink Floyd discography on CD for less than £20 with the right sources.
I'd be inclined to disagree with that especially in Aus in fact CDs generally don't stray from the $10 range on Ebay, which is nice, but yeah. There should be a CD thread or something so I can show off all my lovely cds but there's only a vinyl thread
"Music collection" thread tbh.. [url]http://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon/master/10362[/url] Understandable that Australians would find difficulty. Shipping from the US can cost upwards of $15 lol
The cheapest Pink Floyd I've found retail was a non-remaster of DSOTM for $10. Online I could probably get a remaster edition for $10-$15 I have in excess of 130 cds, or thereabouts, which could easily not cost much money at all in other countries but I would say confidently that I have already spent about $1600 on cds
I don't know how you guys have all this luck. I mean, I had trouble finding CD versions of AMLOR and TDB for ages, I haven't even seen Atom Heart Mother on CD in a while.
Division bell was pretty easy for me maybe you're visiting the wrong stores
[QUOTE=killerteacup;37920602]Division bell was pretty easy for me maybe you're visiting the wrong stores[/QUOTE] I was visiting HMV. But it doesn't matter, I'm probably going to buy the rest on ebay or something.
HMV is a shitty store in fact I think the reason is that in Aus we don't have one, we have JB hi-fi and for a major store, their selection is absolutely stellar like they have most syd barrett, pink floyd, roger waters, david gilmour and some really obscure stuff sometimes as well

What we need: That Wall 1980 footage that's restored in full on Blu-Ray Animals Immersion Box

my biggest gripe is their lack of solo releases. I'm pretty damn sure there's experimentation going on but they ain't got the balls to do it. Peter Hammill releases a crapload, Robert Fripp? Peter Gabriel? Maybe they weren't cut out to be solo artists, but Waters was definitely capable.
[QUOTE=Rowtree;37982228]Meddle Immersion Piper at the Gates of Dawn Immersion please[/QUOTE] All their albums need Immersion. Quad mixes, 5.1 mixes, official releases of restored footage, remastered albums, best live concert from each tour.

I dont think many of them were anything worth talking about either except maybe Broken China
Hopefully my Pink Floyd book will come tomorrow, it's been about 5 weeks and it should of came 2 weeks ago.

So I finished listening to Wish You Were Here for the first time (got the experience edition, but I'd have much rather just get the standalone version because it's cheaper and I really don't care a lot about the extra contents) and I liked it in general. Bit of a short album (I love long albums, anything above one hour because I usually listen to music while commuting and traffic in Panama can be dreadful) but really complete. I absolutely love Shine On and WYWH, Welcome to the machine and have a cigar are a bit harder to digest but I'm pretty sure they'll grow on me. Besides this, I've only listened to DSOTM, which is pretty high up there in my top albums list. Which album should I get next? (I usually buy one record per month, when I can). I'm interested in Animals and Atom Heart Mother (I listened to the first track of AHM, holy shit!). Anyone's opinion on Animals? [editline]22nd October 2012[/editline] Also, the packaging of this "Experience" edition seems really lazy and poorly made. The pages have these border decorations and they get at times cut off from the page and the printing quality is disappointing.
Animals is a great album, all of the songs on it are pretty solid. While it may not as be as long as to your liking, I think you'll like it just as much as WYWH. Dogs is the best on that one, imo.
Animals, Meddle and The Wall should be your next ones. In no particular order.
[QUOTE=Hakita;38133924]Animals, Meddle and The Wall should be your next ones. In no particular order.[/QUOTE] Thanks! I'll probably have someone bring them to me from the US because record stores in this country are TERRIBLE.
So how 'bout them Floyds and them Pinks

Theoretically, if it is mixed correctly and nothing is out of phase, you could just use a DAW to combine both stereo channels I did it with my Doors album, and it worked wonders because the stereo mix on that is just awful, hard panning everything left and right.
