After that MFN video in HD, and the streaming uploads, I'd say something is coming with this website...
You might get lucky, now and then

A few hints on Guys website that MK has not totally dismissed release of old material and also that the record company are aware of the shitty bootlegs currently filling the gap they could make money from on Amazon

From Guys website in relation to archive recordings:

"We are well aware of the demand for such recordings. I can tell you that this matter IS being discussed. The legacy of any band of this stature is naturally very important to record labels"

For what it's worth i'd be after:

Mandela 88
A full Live in 85/6 concert (London Dec 85 / NYC 85 / Sydney 86)
Something from the On Location Tour
OES tour outtakes
Demos and outtakes

All issued with a high quality vinyl release

Not aware any of the London December '85 gigs being recorded - July 10th yes, usually referred to as Wembley '85.
Never liked the Sydney show; tired performance, short ToL. 
Must be enough from the OES tour to take up a dozen CD's if you include the Paris, Nîmes and Rotterdam shows.  :P
Let's not forget the Madrid 2001 DVD and the other shows recorded for overdubs - Glasgow, Newcastle and Bilbao(?).

This site is only going to be worth it if they make available the "Holy Grail" bootlegs, some of which I've listed above.  We already have most available pro-recorded performances.  One wonders what is still surviving and what they can lay their hands on and then get rights to... :think

I know a lot of those shows I listed only exist in audience as we know of ; but I'm sure there are more soundboard recordings we don't know about or have access to. Paris 83 and the OES outtakes for example

It'd be good to know if there actually are any gems we don't know of though.  I have my doubts that this site will reveal very much except for better quality than we already have; nothing new.

Maybe I'm getting old (and I am) but growing up in the days of videotapes I could've lived perfectly well with the old MFN video.  That sort of thing doesn't interest me - it's new material I crave.

It seems like Springsteen and E-Street recorded every show they done back in the day. We get a constant flow of archive material from them on Nugs.net

Can only hope DS done similar and we don't know about it (yet).
