    This pretty much sums it up:

    "You're the heroes because you're tracking them all down. They don't mean anything until somebody's actually grabbed hold of them and digitized them in the best way that's possible."

    Cheers, guys!

I know many of us have become rather bewildered by lost opportunities in respect of reissues and releases, but firmly believe that a full quality official BBC radio set is not beyond the realms of possibility. I will not repeat any discussions here, of course, so please just keep rooting for us.

    I could very well see Dave and Nick giving the nod to a proper dedicated BBC session release if indeed the newly unearthed recordings are a substantial upgrade in both SQ and completeness.

    I'm hoping that they are more compelled to release this due to the sincere and incredibly detailed research that went into this. Much different than me simply passing along better quality recordings like I tried to a few years ago. More time has passed since TEY was released so maybe less embarrassing as well. Good luck gentlemen. If this ever sees an official release I hope they give proper thanks to the two who were responsible.

    At the very least I could see this being a RSD release to help ease the pain. They have put out a few neat things for those days. I have the book in my possession but it's still in it's packaging awaiting my birthday.

    Default Well said Lennyif!

    I loved reading your thoughts/reactions to Ian and Phil's super book. Your heartfelt words expressed feelings that are common to many, yet are often difficult to express. Cheers to you for sharing, and the authors for their inspiration.

    I couldn't face 6am on a wintry Monday, so just listened to the playback now.
    I admit to be trepidatious on your behalf about how the interviewer would go tackling your expert subject matter, but I really enjoyed it all and he was a great presenter.
    That 3rd ping has got me very excited, I can only add my puny voice to the community good vibes now flowing to PF management to get this release happening so I can finally hear it as intended
    Congrats to you both on the wonderful work you have done on this book and on all other aspects of the band.

    I've finally had some time to flip through the book and listen to the interview.
    Just wow! It feels like being a small child flipping through a Tintin album for the first time with its thrills.
    Thank you guys so much for all the research and hard work you've put in.
    Good luck with all future projects, hoping for more exciting stuff soon!

    Loved especially the bit with the three "pings"
    It made me wonder if you have considered doing an audio version of the book?
    Especially as you could include snippets of all the tracks you are writing about, with whatever is the current legal length for audio examples (30 seconds I believe?), so we could at least here some bits of what you uncovered!
