    Who's cluttering up your shelves? Who do you think is in need of a King Crimson-style megabox?

    I'll start with a few:

    Elvis Costello
    Tom Waits
    Nick Cave (The recent box was good, but I want something weightier.)
    Diamanda Galas
    Legendary Pink Dots
    Coil
    Brian Eno
    Tindersticks

    Two Sheds Tea-sipping bad boy!

    R.E.M. - could have an IRS box and a Warner Bros. box. Plenty of outtakes, B-sides, Fan Club Christmas songs that could be collected.
    The Dave Clark Five - Hey, Dave... get off your ass and PUT SOMETHING OUT!

    Other box sets I would want to pick up:

    The Animals
    Herman's Hermits
    Freddie and the Dreamers
    The Left Banke

    LPDs and Coil for sure, those are two artists who have intimidated me with the vastness of their catalogue. I only own a couple from each.

    Maybe The Cramps?

    Hell, I'd settle for a comprehensive 2 disc anthology.

    Assuming they would include unreleased or live stuff that we haven’t seen before, like the KC boxes, then my list would be...

    Asia
    Cozy Powell
    David Lee Roth (post-Van Halen)
    Gary Moore (two-boxes... one for the fusion/shred years and one for the blues)
    Gino Vannelli
    Jean-Luc Ponty
    John Wetton (I understand some stuff is in the works, but don’t know if it’s just deluxe albums or a box)
    Larry Carlton
    Little River Band
    Michael Hedges
    Rory Gallagher (not sure if there was one for him or not)
    Styx
    Triumph
    Y&T

    And a massive set covering Windham Hill

    Depends what you mean by "comprehensive", but a Van Halen box set with their demos and vintage live material would be pretty amazing.

    c-eling Love has no date of expiration...

    I have zero faith in today's mastering.
    I'd like to list a few but more than likely they'd be bastardized.
