    I'm going to say this just for the hell of it even though I would prefer official Sony/Legacy releases instead. Could somebody please Tweet for me (since I'm not on Twitter) that I'd like to see any "Boom" Carter Era shows and the University of Santa Clara 1976 show.

    I put my list together. Maybe planning the next few or rest of 2019?

    I recently subscribed to the NUGS streaming service---which I would recommend----because they had a great deal in July, and was then surprised to find that Bruce's archival releases are not available to stream. It doesn't make much difference to me because I own them all anyway, but it would be a draw to others.

    I wonder whether the difference in the Springsteen/Dylan output has to do with the culture of their management or the difference in the fan base. I love "Blood on the Tracks" but would never buy 6 discs of every take of every track---I bought the single disc version---but somebody is shelling out the big bucks to listen to multiple nearly identical takes of "Tangled Up in Blue." I would be more tempted by the most recent release of 12 or 13 shows from Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue because those are some of Dylan's finest shows, but still can't quite pull the trigger (or click the Amazon button). Once again, however, I assume that they are not selling those big Dylan box sets at a loss just for posterity. So, why can't Bruce do this?

    I mean, I'd rather have official FLAC downloads than fan-uploaded dubious Youtube clips.

    I'm with you on wanting video, though. I'm still bummed Tempe hasn't been released on it's own (I got the accidental iTunes release and saved myself $100, but I'd still pay $15 for it in blu-ray quality). On the other hand, that recent release of the New Orleans Sessions Band show on Youtube gives me hope that maybe we'll see some more goodies there in the future. Honestly, most of what Bruce has video-wise is probably in SD (anything from the 70's/80's, and probably his team's capture of the video screens for most 90's and early 2000's shows are probably still in SD), so Youtube honestly would be okay for this stuff, at least for the price. Here's hoping.

    That's kind of a bummer, but not all that surprising, I suppose. I kinda wish I was still as into the jam scene as I was in college...if Nugs streaming had existed in 2001 I'd have never left my dorm room.

    I have to say, I generally agree with you, but there are so many subtle and unsubtle differences as the Blood on the Tracks takes evolve - I listened to the whole thing in one sitting, and it was one of the best listening experiences I've had. Now, I'm not likely to do that again, but I'm glad I have it.

    The remaining known multi-tracks from the '78 tour, which minimally includes the other two concerts from the Capitol Theatre as well as the (presumably) two Winterland recordings (although only the second night is confirmed to exist).

    The remaining known multi-tracks from the '75 tour, which includes Toronto, Greenvale, the remaining Upper Darby concerts, and the remaining Roxy concerts.

    Any remaining soundboards available from the '77 tour. I could be mistaken but I thought I remember reading that Albany and Rochester were two of five discovered soundboards from that tour and, hopefully, the remaining three come from later in the tour in which the performances were more confident and Action in the Streets had been more fully developed.

    The soundboard (or, ideally, the multi-track...if it exists) for the Vietnam Veterans Benefit at the LA Sports Arena in '81.

    The multi-track recordings from the Meadowlands '81 stand and the remaining multi-track recordings from the London '81 and Nassau Coliseum '80 stands.

    The complete multi-track from Tempe '80.

    Anything and everything (perhaps compiled as a large bundle purchase) of the usable pre-Born to Run material, which could potentially include anything from Steel Mill through the Suki Lahav era of the band.

    A couple of complete soundboards from the '76 tour that collectively includes the (at the time) yet-to-be-released songs: Something in the Night (alternate arrangement), Rendezvous, The Promise, and Frankie.

    The remaining multi-tracks from the Born in the USA tour, which includes two more shows from the Meadowlands '84 stand and several shows on both the Giants Stadium '85 and LA Coliseum '85 stands.

    Berlin '88.

    From the '90s, the Count Basie rehearsal show from '93 and the final night of the three-night stand at Asbury Park's Paramount Theater '96 should be released.

    Part of the reason the 77 soundboards were so awesome is they were so out of the blue. I would hope there are some more surprises like that. Things we have no clue about.

    if bridge 1986 was a deep dive into the vault, then there really isnt much in there. bridge was one thing everyone had in exc quality audio AND video. probably we will see a few reunion shows and then one 'older' one.

    What about Phoenix 1978? The songs on the blu ray in the Darkness box sound even better than the Nugs Passaic to me.

    Oddly, you can get the cd box for $77, or pay three dollars for just the mp3's. :crazy:

    Weird. Shows as $79.99 for me.
    I bought the box and it is totally worth it.

    I don’t think Bruce could sell a multinshow box from the same tour. They have probably missed the boat for a big selling archive release. Nugs may be providing them enough revenue to not worry about it.
    I still think a career spanning live archive box of complete shows would sell.

    nugs doesnt know what the bruce fanatics want? this reminds me of a bruce hornsby show i once went to, where he would tell the aud to write down their requests and throw them on the stage. any song they would want. people pelted the stage with paper. hornsby picked a slip opened it and said "mandolin rain WOW ok we ll do that". probably had a big laugh after the show.

    I think they have some idea. On BTX they have a list of the top 20 shows/bootlegs that members voted on and so far 10 have been issued. They clearly have some idea of which shows fans want even though they seem to be holding back on some of them to spread out the older shows since they have less of them. On the twitter post, the majority is asking for Vets 81 with Winterland 78 being the second last I looked.

    I do find it funny when people consider a show they happened to be at a Holy Grail show just because they were there. I can safely say none of the shows I attended would be a Holy Grail show since I was not old enough to attend the prime era shows. I mean I would still want them but I can't think of any show I attended by any artist that would be among my Holy Grail live recording wants. Of course I am not usually a multiple show per tour guy so the likelihood that my show was one of those insanely good shows isn't high. I collect live recordings of a lot of bands and I can't think of one I was at that is considered a MUST HAVE show. I was at the 2001 Boston shows U2 filmed and released for the Elevation tour and am in the video multiple times and even that is not considered the best show, hell it isn't even considered the best live video release from that tour! The shows are in my personal top 5 all time but for most u2 fans that show(s) is only very highly rated because it was filmed and is available in such great quality. If it wasn't filmed and released I doubt they would be a must have for most.

    Anyway back on topic, maybe this means the want more input on where this series goes in the future? I don't see why they couldn't offer a poll every so often and work on the top few shows from the poll as upcoming releases. They wont, but it would be cool for them to do so.

    I wouldn't read too much into it. They know what fans want, in a broad sense (although I'm surprised shows we already have in good quality, like Winterland, would be that requested), but there's no harm in asking to see if there's any significant clamoring for something they've perhaps overlooked or didn't think was significant.
