Don't know what got into someone, to remove my previous post.
Left out the bootlegs PF themselves made official downloadable
and streamable for some time, this time. A PM should be appropriate.


I'm a big PF fan, to me their pre-Wall stuff has something extra special, a kind of magic later
on was was gone for me and my friends back then. 'More', 'Ummagumma' and to some extent
'Atom Heart' are still underrated in our opinion. I tried many times to like it, but simply couldn't
get into all their 80s stuff. Anyway for collectors like me, this -most compact list, to collect all
official released, pre 1979 recordings, once- might be helpful. 'Works' is only on it for some
vastly different mixes, was in doubt to add the mono mix version of 'Saucerful'.
While 'Obscured' is also included in 'Early Years 65-72'.

The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
A Saucerful Of Secrets
Soundtrack From The Film "More"
Ummagumma
Various - Zabriskie Point (as 2CD)
Atom Heart Mother Limited Edition, 50th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Edition
Relics
Meddle
Obscured By Clouds
The Dark Side Of The Moon - Immersion Box Set
Wish You Were Here - Immersion Box Set
Animals + Snowy White - Goldtop: Groups & Sessions 1974-1994
Live At Pompeii (The Director's Cut)
Works
London 1966/1967
A Technicolor Dream
The Early Years 1965-1972 Box Set
Interstellar Overdrive (one sided 12'')

I will update this list as changes due to new releases occur.

Hi maxal, nice to hear again you like 'More' so! It's indeed an fantastic album
(only 2 fillers: Party Sequence & A Spanish Piece, only needed in the film).
My first Zabriskie Point extra tracks were on a 1972 bootleg LP called Omayyad,
The big box is 'endless' but far from all, for a Floyd fan like me... Don't know if
you're joking, like I wrote: 'to collect all official released, pre 1979 recordings, once'
one has to obtain the whole list, also the individual ones listed here. (-:

Disc 1: Piper in Mono, Disc 2: Piper in Stereo, Disc 3: Bonus tracks)
A Saucerful Of Secrets (CD or LP) Also in mono on LP.

The Early Years 1965-1972 (10xCD+9xDVD+8xBlu-ray+5x7") the bonus part Continu/ation
is the exclusive here. Contains a hidden 5.1 version of Meddle on Obfusc/ation.
Interstellar Overdrive (12'') (fastest version of all Interstellar Overdrives)

Some official releases I still have but actually don't need anymore (being a fan laughing
& crying now) because all its recordings -and more- are already on the shorter list above.

Nice / useful list; and good to read the positive comments for the earlier stuff. Of course I totally agree with you about More. Time stood still when they made that album.

And yes, the Zabriskie 2 x CD is great. I have a vinyl album which assembles a few of the many tracks Pink Floyd produced for Zabriskie Point - 370 Roman Yards. I'd forgotten about it, I remember being impressed by it. Thanks for reminding me, I'll play it tomorrow. [OK - it's "unofficial", but with the lack of a proper release of it on vinyl, I'm glad I have it.]

The second to last thing you list, the Early Years box set. I take it you mean the HUGE boxset? I can't pretend to know it as I was scared of the price, but it looks phenomenal. (Comparatively, the later years box is very skimpy in terms of range.) Also including the 2 x films, Clouds and More. Plus the vinyl 7". Actually, listing all this stuff, surely if you have this box, then you don't need the other items you list individually. Still glad you list them ??. The historical importance of the Early Years box can not be overexagerated.

Is it possible to find a Nigel Gordon film about Syd Barrett's travels in the Gog-magog hills somewhere ?..
