Quote from: RAY4583 on December 03, 2017, 05:25:36 am Just a follow-up here. 1) When you claim that, "they" went through the archives, who, exactly do you claim "they" to be?2) You claim, "...all they could find..." was some unreleased material from the Hammersmith '78 show. How do you know that's all that was found? Perhaps more was indeed found, but, this is all that was chosen to have been worthy of use.3) Like the bands who recorded cover versions or not, they're certainly, "somebodies", and not, "nobodies". Just because you may not have heard of some of them, to call them, "nobodies" only shows ignorance.4) "Hardly a labour of love"? Ummmm,...do you know exactly how long it took, from stem to stern, to finally have this box set see the light of day? Labor? Most definitely! "Of love"? Well,...there certainly must be a depth of admiration, enthusiasm, and passion, to devote almost a year-and-a-half (true labor!) to a project. Seems to me like this beautiful, abundant, celebrated set was a true, "labor of love", in the truest sense of each word.

Quote from: RAY4583 on December 08, 2017, 07:10:06 am Isn't anybody who checks in here...who contributes here....who shares or debates here, exactly that? "Fanboys", or, "fangirls", that is?
Quote from: The Old Dog on December 03, 2017, 12:31:42 pmIt really begs the question though Dods why not release the 5.1 as a standalone and not as part of an expensive box set ,which is pissing a lot of folk off so I've heard.I'm certainly not going for this as we already have the studio re release from 2015 in the vinyl format and I'm not altogether that fussed about a couple of extra tracks from a live recording that is available as a roio ,definitely don't want a reprint of the 1978 tour book nor the the tacky ring thing nor the slip mat for that matter.
Quote from: Bisto on December 15, 2017, 20:37:07 pmWe all know the answer to that....kerchiiiiiing!Not interested in the slightest in the cover versions...or the tat....just give us the back catalogue in blue ray 5.1 and 200 gram half speed mastered virgin vinyl and we may still grumble in our boots but we will still pay over the odds for it
Quote from: The Old Dog on December 15, 2017, 20:56:22 pmDon't be daft Rush would never release a decent sounding version if the fanbois are paying over the odds for crap like this .
Quote from: RAY4583 on December 08, 2017, 07:10:06 amHmmmm. Interesting. Well,...I considered your verdict that my reply was, "fanboy nonsense". I re-read what I had written, and, upon further review, have decided that you're just plain wrong. My reply included merely questions, or, facts. My first point was just a question, which has gone unanswered. Similarly, my second point also simply posed a question, with a logical conclusion. My third point was a simple citation of definitive ignorance. And, my final point was in fact, an accurate reference to the time it took, from stem to stern, to put this fantastic package together. So, "fanboy"? Sure. But,...aren't you? Aren't we all? Isn't anybody who checks in here...who contributes here....who shares or debates here, exactly that? "Fanboys", or, "fangirls", that is? So, I won't disagree. I'm a definitive, "fanboy", and quite proud of it. "Nonsense", though? Clearly, that's just wrong. I hope this helped...
