I think it's probable that the market is not strong enough to support these "collector" releases. I buy them and you all do, however if they don't generate more mainstream interest, I expect there is little motivation to get them released or available. We have all seen and heard the hype to generate more interest ("Year of he Doors" etc), but in the end, the hype fizzled out and die-hard fans were left scratching our heads about all the titles we were told were still coming. I suppose "Best of" Cd's, T-shirts and coffee mugs help keep the Doors "brand" out there, but it doesn't really do much to keep the music relevant and interesting.

The live recordings and studio extras keep the fans excited and the music (and band) interesting. It's unfortunate these archive releases - of new and interesting performances - have ground to a halt or are being shelved. I think that's a shame because if properly handled and promoted, I think it has the potential to be quite successful...


You are so right! They market to the masses, not the hardcore fans. It is too bad. They don't seem to listen to anything the fans want.

Maybe someday!

And do you think that releasing by 6345th time the videos of Break on Through, Touch me, Wild Child, Light my Fire etc etc in the latest DVD has more market than a new live release? The DMC management has ruined the situation many times, they can´t blame anyone but themselves for the failure of many announced-never concreted live releases. that is only my opinion.
Bring back the Q&A thread!

If The London Fog is going to be a limited release, would Record Store Day be a good day to release it? Many artists release rare and limited recordings on RSD. Just throwing it out there as a possibility. If the demand for this release is high on RSD, a later standard release could be considered.
