    The First Friday Archive Series era is dead. 

    Long live whatever comes next. 

    The past 6 months have been riddled by delays. I look forward always with intense anticipation. Maybe they will use this time to fix the issues. I will assume its a combination of things we dont get to hear about. I also think JA has been busy with Phish. They have four dates in Mexico coming up. But, yeah. Really unhappy about this and thier communication is awful.

    There is other work being done no doubt getting an album ready, planning a tour. I will also say, having another mixer would help.

    The bright side is they didnt promise that it'll be worth the wait.

    We should wait for official word from Nugs. That was just a hypothetical statement

    Backstreets has always been the mouthpiece for Bruce Inc,  Nugs simply posts the files provided by them. In the beginning, nugs was far more involved.  Now the bottleneck is Bruce/Landau in terms of selecting, mixing, mastering etc.

    I only think this info was given to assume its off this month.

    The delay it very strange because last year they released 

    a first friday Roxy 75 (if i am correct), then Broadway, with Christmas the 2 No Nukes shows and first friday january again a release. So why now a delay ?


    I think its just bad timing this year. We have no idea how it really works, aside from knowing that the show is selected, mixed and approved. Add to that mastering and post production work on the nugs side. I think the whole Western Stars diversion was unexpected. I'm working through my feelings on this and in the bigger scheme of things I have alot to be thankful for in general.

    Maybe now would be the time to officially pause the project for a while, pick and mix the shows in advance, prepare some adequate safety stock? 

    Maybe resolve the Rising issue in the meantime.... 

    From what I have read, the bottleneck is Bruce Inc. I agree with you.

    I look forward to thse releases and today I am disappointed, really pissed to be honest.

    Something else, after listening to the show from Milwaukee, 9 June 1978, a few days ago.

    This show, from early in the Darkness tour, is different from shows later in the tour. The show is shorter, more raw (like the 1977 tour), with the Darkness songs less prominent in the setlist and the performances of the Darkness songs a sort of work-in-progress (most of all Prove It All Night, which really sounds different from later performances; also a little bit strange version of Racing In The Street). Which makes the argument 'we've had enough Darkness shows, because they are all the same [in setlist]', complete nonsense.

    But. What makes this show in Milwaukee so great, and such a pleasure to listen to, is the atmosphere of the show, of the audience tape. Question could be if all this [and not only for 1978, but also for ther tours] will still be there on a professional recording with little or no audience noise/audience participation.

    Is that a good recording from the audience?

    Why did I get emotional listening to Independence Day 12/16 today? 

    I've listened to this tune 100's if not 1000's of times! 

    Its a great song. I go back to it over and over. His performnces of it in '78 are incredible.

    Thanks to the magic of the archive series we have some to choose from....one day Atlanta will be out there too I hope.
