Moving Pictures is obviously going to get some kinda 40th anniversary stuff, but I think it would be cool for Rush to put out a box set of bootlegs sometime down the road.

Yeah I see Tull in stages. Roughly speaking - the early stuff with Clive and Glenn 1968-71, part 2 with Barlow/Hammond renaissance/minstrel Tull 71-75, part 3 1976-78 rustic countryside Tull. For me Stormwatch was the last Tull album. Not saying what follows isn't very good, I thoroughly enjoy Broadsword, "A", Crest of a Knave, but it really seems like the band thing was dropped after Stormwatch and it was just Ian bringing along Martin to do solo albums. Not a criticism, just my opinion.

Absolutely, the first album of Tull is a different beast from the rest. I liked Glenn cornick on bass.

I'd much rather hear demos, re-mixes, music only mixes or live stuff than other bands interpreting their music.  I definitely DON'T want to hear Dream Theatre doing Hemispheres, or Foo Fighters doing the Trees, or whatever.  Also, instead of commissioning new album art, I wish they could spend the money on really good quality colour reproduction of the original covers.

If they do Hemispheres, the vinyl must be RED, too . . . and include the poster.

Yes i would like to see the covers fully restored including extras like the poster in Hemispheres,something that Jimmy Page didn't get right with the deluxe Zep reissues among other things.My wife likes the new cover of AFTK,i do not.

Foo Fighters would be OK but not on Trees. I think the lyrics are too much in the Peart Randian era, but the song itself is OK. I don't skip it. A cover of it, I would not play it.

Well knowing that there ARE demos, (and cassette mixes) I think there would be possible pre-release versions of most albums....  Now I'm hoping that they continue this trend, and we possibly get the demo of "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" in a Permanent Waves anniversary....

But I am bummed that we haven't received anything from Caress of Steel.... I'd be willing to bet that some live stuff exists in their vaults.....
