The 'Complete' Early Years '65-72' - what do we need to fill in the gaps?
Now i know this has been covered off a few times in the main Early Years boxset thread, but i thought it might be good to pull out the information into a separate thread (and i really hope this doesn't turn into another thread of bitchin' about how we're getting screwed by the band with the stuff they left off).
I wanted to try and get a complete list of songs that are missing from the boxset but are circulating amongst the community, so that when the boxset is released we can all fill the gaps to create our very own 'special edition'. Where possible would people also be able to provide information of where the best versions of the tracks can be found (i.e - 67' BBC session - Let There Beeb More Light etc).
Thanks all in advance and i'm sure i'm not the only one this will help :-)

Good Idea! I would say that the Ummagumma outtake of Interstellar Overdrive (Careful with these Tracks) and the "San Francisco" version of Interstellar (Dawn of The Piper?) are essential.
I am personally putting together a little "Best of The Bootlegs" collection for stuff that was left off plus audience recordings of most of the songs that were played live. My intention is that it would be a companion to this great box. If it turns out well, I will share it here.
Thanks for kicking things off, I'll starting keeping a list in the first post.
I'd love to hear your 'best of the bootlegs' once it's done :-)

P.S. I can't seem to find 'Let there Beeb more light' in the Torrents section...

I have done a small remaster of Interstellar from CWTT. I know, remastering a mp3-sourced track might seem strange, but I believe that it came out quite nicely. Anyway I don't know if this would be allowed for a seed, I remember some discussions about that bootleg; I think that this specific track is an outtake, not a new mix of something officially released, so I would not see reasons to ban it, but I prefer somebody to confirm if it is allowed, and if it can be someway interesting.

I'll share it tomorrow when I'm at home.

Yes, that's the official set released in 2007 which was the first time those three rare tracks were released along with "Apples and Oranges" in stereo... I'd guess that set is now out of print thanks to the whole EMI being sold fiasco but given they were officially released by the band, they would not be permitted here so one will still have to track those tracks down.

Unless it turns out to be a snippet from "John Latham" there's also the 90 second track sometimes called "Sunshine" from the Syd era. Copenhagen and Rotterdam gigs apart, I think that's all the Syd era oddments accounted for since the acetate mixes aren't that radically different and the 2 or 3 "demo" tracks are way too rough quality for comfort. Copenhagen has one important rarity - One In A Million, and I'd also toss in "Reaction In G" from that show because it's a killer performance!
