    One of the best bits was the American guy introducing it and getting booed and running off when he got his timing wrong. Then doing all over again as a zombie and we realised he worked out how to get booed deliberately and his timing was spot on. I think my sweatshirt is ina bag in my loft. Last time I tried it on it was far too small. It must have shrunk.;)

    my sweatshirt also shrunk , it had lots of hammers marching on the front of it nothing on the back. I do have a picture of me wearing it hitching to Donnington Park to see the second Monsters of Rock festival with AC/DC , Whitesnake , Slade , Blue Oyster Cult , Blackfoot , More and Tommy Vance on the turntable . My first outdoor concert. Incidentally, Tommy Vance used to have an annual top 10 tracks of all time and I remember Suppers Ready always was in The top 3 once. Memories flooding back. I vividly remember an ice cream van but not much else as regards facilities (It was freezing and pouring ) and the ice creams didn’t sell that well!.

    I can’t remember but it was Definitely a year or so after the album maybe a little more, I remember that concert like yesterday especially the sound circulating around the arena (if you don’t eat your meat etc) and the plane flying into the wall. Also Snowy white doing a solo from the top of the wall. I think it was about £8.50 - £9.50 or something like that I bought a sweatshirt and a programme and that was me skint!. I do actually have a dvd of the concert (one of them ) somewhere which I traded with someone years ago. Sweat shirt long gone , programme same but memories really vivid even now.

    I would have loved to see that concert I was old enough just at 17, but at that stage didn’t attend concerts on my own so therefore wasn’t allowed to go. I did see Pink Floyd Perform the Wall at the old Earls Court around the same time and Neil Young at Wembley Arena (both taken by a mate and his dad thankfully) but I missed this. Probably one of the greatest regrets of my concert going as a teenager and then an adult along with Led Zeppelin at Knebworth (I did try to go on my own as a 15 year old but I got rumbled!!). Can I ask how easy was it to get a ticket for the event?, and it’s a massive shame they didn’t decide to film it which I believe the band also regret to this day?.

    Fair comment, I just feel it’s a shame that other avenues ain’t explored (my personal viewpoint). If it’s true that there wasn’t much more to release then I guess studio time was very inexpensive!. The Beatles on the other hand went through songs many times In the studio Take xx etc etc!. Such takes have come to be quite lucrative cash cows, and I would think Paul and Ringo are in lesser need financially. I wonder whether opinions would change if money was an issue?, possibly?.

    They could ease my frustration by re issuing those boxes, I forgot to bid on eBay the other day thru being distracted at home, and the complete set went for £400, I was well peeved!.

    It is all really puzzling to be sure, it’s as if that’s done, dusted and we ain’t going back there. Maybe the guys don’t need the money. If Tony can’t be bothered to look at these things then perhaps for the fans sake he could pass the baton on.

    There is money to be made at the end of the day, and fans like us who are prepared to pay for super deluxe sets. I just don’t get it to be frank. With the current uncertainty I don’t think there are any excuses to not consider this. And we don’t have anything really interesting to discuss on the forum apart from memories!.

    at least Mr Gabriel seems to take an interest in issuing other stuff in his vaults ie, the live albums.

    I don’t know if it’s just me but I feel that the lack of anniversary editions of the albums is very disappointing at best. Nearly every band seems to have an outlet for re appraisal of old releases (think Paul McCartney and Jethro Tull, there are many more). I just don’t understand why my favourite album Trespass and all the rest haven’t been given this expanded enhanced treatment?. Surely they have out takes, studio run throughs and curios that could be added?. I appreciate there is supposed to be A Lamb release this year but this year is nearly over. We haven’t had anything for years and it’s not great to see whatever there is sat in a vault , corroding.

    Maybe another week of pondering and we will get it, I only hope that it isn’t something that far into the ether no one would have a chance of getting it , I vote keep it running and if the answer is forthcoming the another question can be put to us all.

    What amazes me is that none of you have got it, even though clues have been provided. I can only pay my dues to DecomposingMan for thinking up such a question.

    Is it the inter relationship between fly on a windshield and Broadway melody of 74 and Dodo and Lurker on side two being two separate songs but joined I don’t know worth a shot

    I still can’t get it , whatever it is I thank you for making me think and while I’m at it I cleaned my LPs on the machine and put them in MFSL sleeves. !!

    I actually wonder if you put this question to a band member would they get the answer I doubt it !.

    I’m thinking songs about animals only on these two LPs

    dodos lambs and cuckoos but I’m probably wrong again , mind you Raven is on the lamb

    So it can’t be that answer either !!. I give up

    Is it most songs on side 1 of an album and most on side 2 perhaps - clutching at straws again ( as he goes into the cupboard to pull out vinyls for the 10th time )

    one has 10 and one has 11 for the full LP

    These LPs probably will have edge wear by the time I’m finished pulling them out !!

    Completely stumped that’s me! I’m counting songs up , wondering if it’s instrumentals or absence of them. No I’m definitely not getting any warmer!. Come on your folks put me out of my misery and get the answer !!.

    number of songs on the sides?. I’ve just looked at both my lamb LPs and the first record looks exactly as the second.

    I must say this is a good question mind you they are all good but I cannot see anything on the vinyl LPs themselves, are you referring to UK pressings or American pressings specifically

    Gosh it’s really giving me A mental block this one. If it’s that simple it must be simple enough to miss it completely . I’m even looking at the run out grooves to see if it’s to do with that !!
