Beltane, Everything, Quatrain are reasonably good but slightly unfinished sounding
    I think I probably prefer these new Stormwatch tracks to the new ones that appeared on the Heavy Horses set. I like those, but it's a bit easier to see why some of them were left off than it is in this case.

    Good to hear lol. I already know 2/3 of the Stormwatch extras and they’re awesome. I’m expecting a ripper double album. Should be the best of the remixes so far. 71 and 74 were excellent years for extra tracks but 79 might be the winner

    Ditto here. After how quickly SFTW disappeared I'll be sure to get it quite quickly after it's released.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Well, as long as that's all you're fondling.

    This just popped up on YT a couple of days ago, from late in the HH tour. Less than a month before Glascock's last show.

    Nice!!! Shame they didn't put this on the SW set as a DVD extra. But it is great to have in any form. Finds like this is very exciting for me. Like we are archeologists and someone has found a new artifact.

    Otherwise I think the only video from the SW era is the Ohne Maulkorb show which is great for about the first half but then becomes less and less listenable.

    Now if only someone could find the entire LA Sports Arena film from the A tour

    I've long said that I don't think they'll ever bother converting that one to 'book' format, but lately I've been wondering if I'm maybe wrong about that. But who knows? They'd have to determine if it would be worth reissuing again, since it's not one of the bigger selling titles, it's not a favourite of IA's, and there are people who bought the first edition who won't bother shelling out for a new one just so that it matches the others on the shelf. However with the right extra material and a nice, juicy booklet...

    It was $65 the last I saw a few days ago. I'm not sure what's going on! It's not a marketplace seller price either, it's Amazon's...

    So I posted photos of my Stormwatch box when it arrived, and someone on FB asked if I could please upload .PDFs of the booklet, because he's "very interested in reading it". Oh sure, let me just scan 96 pages of yet-to-be-released, copyrighted material that was sent to me in good faith, and upload it to social media so that thousands of strangers can have it for free. People astound me.

    Still another 3-4 weeks for mine to arrive lol. I’m sure there will be a 50th book version of Benefit next year

    No, it is a CD-sized fold-out digipack. At the time they did Benefit, there was no indication this book style series was going to be so popular. Only Brick had been done in that format, and Aqualung (at the time) was a full (LP-sized) boxed set (it was later reissued in the book format, but it's always a big selling title, so I'm sure they didn't think twice). From A Passion Play in 2013 onward, they went with book format for every release, including going back and doing Stand Up and This Was. This leaves Benefit as the odd one out, since it is a smaller set without a huge book and is not uniform with the other releases (despite the same guy re-mixing it and providing plenty of bonus tracks). So it remains to be seen if they ever do go back and convert that one. I'm not so sure, as Ian isn't particularly fond of it (remember, he wanted Wilson to skip over A Passion Play, so he's not a stickler for wanting the full catalogue done this way), and it's tough to say if it would sell the same number of copies as the others, when there will be a contingent of people who think "I've already bought it, I don't care that it isn't a bit taller".

    No, A has never been remixed, it was issued in 2004 as a remaster in a 2-disc jewel case with the Slipstream DVD as a bonus.
