So do you think we are now more likely to get Tracks 2 or BITUSA box this year?

Such an album should be called, ´I Hoped Not’. ;)

I think I read that 40 songs were recorded for Western Stars . How about Western Stars 2

I’m definitely in for that. But “horseless” this time, please.

He did already release an album with the ass of a man (himself) on the cover and an album with the ass of a horse on the cover, so what's next?

Well, I know I shouldn’t bite, given that somebody mentioned it:

how about a classic rodent’s ass for ‘High Hopes 2’? ;)

I should have anticipated Commie Tommy coming up in any mention of HH.  I'm surprised it wasn't Daisey mentioning him.  I would love to hear some tasteful Morello guitar solos over Sugarland, Richfield Whistle, Klansmen etc.

We're going ok over here Daisey.  As usual when we follow the Kiwi's lead, it works pretty well. 

My work lends itself pretty well to the Work From Home thing.  I've never been busier.  And I haven't been on a plane for months, so as the great philosopher, Mark Gillespie once said, "You know you should be grateful for small mercies".

 

Are the family in Nelson ok Mr Bear ?

Just for the record;)

Because i like to read posts in the accent of the country of origin-

Im confused by the Swiss accent because you have German, French and Italian as offical languages  and im not sure what  Romansh sounds like ?

But what did you grow up speaking with your mum and dad ?

I'd take any of the two in an instant! But I think BITUSA in November would make more sense? And he could do full album shows next year then. Same strategy as The River 5 years ago. 

But I would prefer Tracks II, or The Vault, or whatever you want to call it :P

The vault has a great sound to it

Bruce could have a little fun with the bootlegging aspect of his fanbase and call it "The Lost Masters".

It might have been pretty good, by all accounts we have. He was working with Roy, Tommy Simms, Shayne Fontayne, and Zach Alford. I think Streets of Philadelphia must have been the spark that started the project. Missing, Nothing Man, and Waiting on the End of the World all date to that time (indeed, the working album title was Waiting on the End of the World) and I like those songs. I personally think Secret Garden and Back in Your Arms would have been part of that album too.

Apart from the fact that he over sings  He's no soul singer, but he's trying to be.  He does it on a few other songs, too.  Doesn't work.

It's something of an anniversary year for BITUSA, so I'd vote for that. Besides, there's a ton of outtakes and video footage that need to be liberated from those sessions and tour.

Certainly an anniversary for when the thing blew sky high in 1985, although album itself of course came out the year before.

The video footage is what I want... I'd love to see a full show (most likely LA 85) augmented with other pro shot footage from other shows. Plenty to choose from, based just on what is floating around on You Tube now. They could fill 4 DVD discs (or three Blu Rays) with this material alone.

But I repeat my post from earlier in this thread... is producing a box like this realistic this year? In terms of presentation,  I expect a BITUSA box to look a lot more like the Darkness box than The River or BTR boxes... is mass producing a set like that on anyone's radar at the moment?

I can take the over-singing on Back In Your Arms - what I really can't stand is the way he shoe-horns in the lyrics to fit the music. Something is off about that song, to my ears.
