    Supposedly the original plan for Beckology was to have another disc with live and guest appearances which was nixed by the record label.

    Relatively little attention to his work outside of King Crimson, especially his solo albums.

    And I imagine he has a ton of unreleased material which is always nice for a box set.

    Ween - they have so many album outtakes it’s ridiculous. They even play many of them regularly in their live sets.
  16. TheGoodDoctor

    TheGoodDoctor It used to go something like that

    Pavement would be a good candidate.

    I don't know how much I personally want a box set (I would like one of it was all rare or unreleased, not so much if it had a lot of previously released material) but:
    Van Morrison

    We've only really had The Philosophers Stone 2CD set which was excellent, and also labelled Volume 1 incidentally!

    Apart from that we've had the expanded Moondance and It's too late to stop now sets. There have been some odd tracks on reissues (mostly one or two on each) but for someone with such a large catalogue there's very little. There hasn't been any official live archive material, which bearing in mind Van's reputation for extending songs in concert and playing covers is surprising. I would also like to see some live videos - not all of the Rainbow footage was released with ITLTSN; we have the excellent Montreux 74/80 DVD, but nothing else from the 60s/70s/80s. In Ireland hasn't been released on DVD, or the Arena Special with Bob Dylan, John Lee Hooker etc.

    Maybe he releases most of what he records, or maybe it's just because he's not bothered!

    Given the proliferation of "complete album collections" and the trivial ability to create playlists on streaming services to effectively create giant greatest hits sets, I don't think "desperately in need" are words I'd apply to many artists, or many boxes.

    Cases, where there's a huge missed opportunity, would be artists like Stevie Wonder, where he's apparently sitting on tons of unreleased material, and few of the existing releases have been mastered using the original tapes. But generally speaking, the days of the box set as a prestigious bulky best of are dead and gone.
