Cool to see Denmark in the top 15!

I don't know about South African Floyd fans since I've only been living here since 2009 but I do know that India has lots of Pink Floyd fans especially in the college scene and people around my age group or older. I don't think this pie chart is very representative of the world.

Or maybe India and SA simply do not place in the Top 15. I do know that an overwhelming majority of Indians still prefer listening to Indian film and classical music.

I'm assuming the Blu-Ray is audio and not video? What type of audio? Seems like some of the same material plus bonus tracks?

It says that there is some visual between tracks with audio, 5.1 and there are extra tracks and some videos, all the extra stuff is only on the special editions.

Thanks for posting this, I must admit I personally prefer albums to have just one edition, that's to say the standard album with nothing more (no bonus tracks or alternate versions) and nothing less.

Some interesting song titles here, names like Things Left Unsaid, The Lost Art of Conversation and Louder Than Words are notable as they seem directly related to The Division Bell's theme of communication (or lack thereof), and given the announcement that Stephen Hawking has given his voice to the album my guess is that he probably appears in Talkin' Hawkin', judging by that title. I wonder if Autumn '68 is any way related to Atom Heart Mother's Summer '68? Given that the album is at least partially a tribute to Rick Wright it certainly doesn't seem out of the question.

I'll almost certainly give the album a listen, although as I'm a big fan of David Gilmour and Pink Floyd instrumentals I suspect I'll probably enjoy it. I do want to hear it first though rather than buying 'blind'.

I though about buying the straight CD but the Blu-ray has extra tracks that are not just live recordings so I thought it would be good to see all the visual stuff and videos.

Completely unrelated to The Endless River, just a couple of days ago I found this video of what seems to be an early mix of Shine On You Crazy Diamond:



Points of interest (some of these aren't especially surprising, but others were unexpected):
- This version ends at Part VIII, suggesting that Part IX was recorded separately (given that it's solely credited to Rick Wright whereas all the other sections are credited to Waters, Gilmour and Wright this does not surprise me that much).
- There is no guitar solo in Part I.
- Part I ends very suddenly before Part II begins.
- At the start of Part II David Gilmour plays the initial Syd's theme parts six times rather than four as in the final version. In this recording it sounds to me almost like David wasn't happy with the first two attempts and starts playing the theme again from the start.
- Guitar overdubs seem to be missing throughout, this is probably most noticeable in part II.
- There are no backing singers on the vocal sections.
- **** Parry's sax solo in Part V is absent, this does enable the guitar and organ parts to be heard more clearly which makes it interesting.
- Part V segues seamlessly into Part VI.
- Roger Waters sings the chorus in a different style in Part VII (I'm glad he changed this for the final version, he goes a bit over the top here I think).

Pink Floyd is pretty big amongst the rock fans here in South Africa. The classic rock channel plays a LOT of Floyd, especially from DSOTM. Also their albums are usually available at the local music stores and they seem to sell well. Additionally, The Australian Pink Floyd Show played here a few years back and it was well attended, if not sold out, despite it being held in a dodgy part of town.
Regarding the banning of The Wall by "the previous regime", it probably did a lot for Pink Floyd in this country. People that would not normally have listened to Floyd became interested in them in order to find out what the album was all about.
