    So I'd heard the complaints about the piercing highs on the OBC and Pompeii remixes, but having listened a few times I hadn't really been bothered by them -- until yesterday, when I put the first two tracks of OBC on with my IEMs, and I had to turn it off!

    I have access to Adobe Audition -- anyone have any advice on how to implement a dynamic EQ on this mess? Thanks!

My complaint, (and I think jimfisheye's) is this: why this was not done for the individual volumes released on HDTracks? Releasing material on HDTracks would imply that sound quality would be the main concern, and would implicitly eliminate overuse of NR and overly bright EQ choices and/or excessive dynamic compression. Some of the material on the HDTracks Sampler seems to have mastered with these ideals in mind. Why not do that for all of TEY sets? (Time and money, I'm guessing, but still, we're talking less EQ/NR/etc, not more work. A separate mastering pass could be as simple as bypassing the NR/EQ and just re-rendering. Not that time-intensive, IMHO.)

    And yes, I would rather have this material "as-is" rather than not at all, but the HDTracks release baffles me - it seems like a bit of missed opportunity, especially given Floyd's history of careful attention to sound quality.

    Just my two cents, I know...
    It's more than two cents as far as I'm concerned. Couldn't have said it better myself, this is the main reason of my disappointment with the HDTracks releases, I wouldn't have had a problem with shelling out some extra cash if the above issues were to be taken into consideration. Releasing them with the exact same mastering for all of the tracks as on the box set release makes them totally redundant, not to say worthless.

    It's not redundant or worthless for those who passed on the physical releases and are only interested in having a choice for the audio tracks.

    Have they done a fresh transfer of Interstellar Overdrive for the RSD release, Roscoe59?

    I have no idea. I think my credit on this release is more of a make-up call for leaving my name off the big box credits.

    I only wish the Floyd had made their opinion known regarding record Cos.

    There's some fodder there for a great song IMO.

    Maybe they could express the sentiment musically... I dunno, it's just an idea...

    Because it was there and should be preserved right along with the stereo mix?

    The real question is what happened to the stereo mix master? And... apparently they didn't even have a poor high generation cassette copy of this one to include? (Like they did for the '67 & '68 shows. Even though many of us have better copies of those too.)

    The good news is we have an excellent copy of a transcription disc with 3 of the songs and a post broadcast copy of the other two in excellent condition.

    To the best of my knowledge it's all the BBC has, so I have deduced from that that they didn't look further. They might alternatively have felt that the mono version was the safe choice for mastering. Nobody seems to be on record on the subject.
