Pink Industry (vinyl reissue box would be nice)
Mission of Burma
Peter Murphy (vinyl reissues 85-95, would love to see Deep on white vinyl)
The Comsat Angels
The fans desperately need the box sets:
Steve Tibbetts out of print ECM albums
Robert Wyatt Solo Albums
Sugarcane Harris MPS Albums
Volker Kriegel MPS Albums
Archie Shepp Complete Impulse Albums
Tribal Tech Complete Studio Albums
Xenakis Orchestral Works
Pierre Boulez re-release of DG Complete Works 13 CD Set
Jack Bruce Polydor Albums remixed & remastered
Many nice answers above.
I guess for me it would have to be Dire straits. Of course there are some out there already, an LP box with only the studio albums and an Italian CD collection with all their official recorded output studio and live, but no singles and EPs.
9 albums in all and some singles, so it can't be very hard, unless they add some demos and hard to find things.
The problem with such box-sets, apart from their price, is that part of the mystery is lost. When you stumble across a hard to find single with a unique B side it feels like a treat. And the band/artist probably meant it to be somewhat obscure, maybe due to its quality.
Of course nowadays with youtube and spotify and other similar services, almost everything can be found with a couple of clicks, so a box-set might be something of a trophy that proves you are a true fan. Especially if it is pricy and few can really afford it, or because you have to sacrifice other desires to get it.
So I prefer modest compilations of only the hard to find things instead of bulky compilations that include all the things I already have plus the unreleased. What's the use of paying once again for things I already have?
Townes Van Zandt
Laurie Anderson (was supposed to happen around 2009)
Danzig - vinyl box set of American label releases
I'm still wishing for a NRPS Complete Columbia years box set with Alternates, Outtakes, etc.
Yeah - so much stuff on so many labels. But I'd buy it in a flash.
Crowded House-love to see a boxed collection of all the live fan club discs.
Billy Harper - tenor sax
I'd definitely like to see a box that covers the history of The Tubes in their art rock period so from the pre- A&M era, through the first three studio records and up to the live album. It all got considerably less interesting for me from Remote Control on. As with Devo I assume there is a lot of early studio work that would be worth hearing.
I’d love a Boards of Canada boxset, compiled with outtakes, singles, b-sides, E.P.’s, early work and live stuff, if any performances are available. I’d dish for that. Also a My Morning Jacket box would be very welcome, and since we’re dreaming, an Orange Juice/Edwin Collins boxset...oh yeah. Heck, a boxset of The Feelies with loads of live shows, covers, etc...and a Tom Verlaine/Television set...geez, I could do this all day.
Is there another thread like this (I'm sure I mentioned Little Richard in a similar thread.)
Recently the artist known as Big Maybelle came back to mind - would be nice to have a career spanning collection of hers.
How many of these sets would have happened if not for the Universal Fire?
neil young - career spanning 4 or 5 discs, loaded with hits and rarities not 'archives 2"
prince - ala neil young-----look up
mary chapin carpenter
steely dan - hits and rarities
Queen for sure, they should be #1 here.
A few that would get my $$$ :
- Joe Walsh
- Joni Mitchell
- Pearls Before Swine
- Jackson Browne
- James Taylor
- Any number of ECM artists
