Thank you for your comments about the bonus DVD earlier today. There were some good ones… and some other ones.
And yes, if you missed it, ‘A Great Day For Freedom’, ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘High Hopes’ are included on said DVD, in addition to the ‘On an Island’ album in its entirety, ‘Astronomy Domine’ and ‘Echoes’. (Come on, did you really think they’d be left out? That was a wind-up.)
There’s just so much to say today, I need a second post to be able to say it all.
I can tell you – and this is no wind-up, trust me – that there will be two, three, four and five-disc ‘Live in Gdańsk’ packages available, containing various things. Obviously, the two-disc version is the album – on CD – and the three-disc version is the album – still on CD – with a bonus DVD, as mentioned previously (114 minutes of concert footage from Gdańsk, plus a 36-minute documentary).
If you read the comments that followed the post before last (Live album on vinyl, 5 June), you may also have noted that the vinyl version contains a whopping five LPs. Really. Five.
There is another five-disc set in addition to the vinyl, by the way.
So, what about these mysterious four and five-disc sets? Wot’s…. Uh The Deal? Do you think the fourth disc is a CD or a DVD? What do you think is on it? What about the fifth disc? Could it be vinyl? Could it be Blu-ray? Could it be magic? And just how does a concert take up five LPs, anyway? Something’s been added to that, surely. Either that, or perhaps something’s missing from the CD. Hmm.
I’d like to know what you think will fill these discs and, separately, what you hope will fill them. These are two very different things, of course.
That said, in spite of some improbable cravings (be fair), we’re enjoying your excitement, so keep your feedback coming.
Lastly, a summary of what’s been announced so far is available here, if you want it straight.
