As it seems that the band has gotten more conservative in its album-specific anniversary releases (NAIHF, Chronic Town) could it be that material is being set aside for the “mythical box set”, perhaps to be released for the band’s 50th anniversary?
The 2030 anniversary falls the year after we can expect the Around The Sun 25th anniversary reissue and there’s a four-year gap between that and Accelerate, so plenty of room to have a significant anniversary campaign.
Maybe we’ll finally get the Bombay studio session, the outtakes from the Fables album sessions in London, the Pat Biddle soundboard tapes from the early shows in Athens, etc.?
What would you most like to see included on a 50th anniversary boxset, and how would you like to see an anniversary campaign rolled out?
