Recently new member and an FTD consultant Ciscoking started up a topic called "Still Interested". This poll is dedicated to -in the main- on what live years most of us want to see covered in the future ?

P.S. Thanks Matt Helm for the idea. You're a legend mate :D

I’ve gone for ‘69 - ‘71 and the ‘61 concert (fat chance). I might accept ‘72 for the EOT material, but I reckon laziness and boredom was slipping in.

Well Joan Deary once claimed that she was aware Memphis concerts was recorded but original tapes was "unusable". The question then is, are there any tracks from the concert(s) that could be salvaged, i guess fr the next life in music multidisc package ?

I went for 61/69/70.

61 for obvious reasons. 69 for powerhouse performances - hoping that his cover of "I Saw Her Standing There" will turn up, whether its a rehearsal or from a live show. 70 because he was still committed, though towards the end of the year it was slipping - though i hope his version of "Delta Lady" turns up.

After that forget it.

I think ultimately the EOT audio will be one of those that everyone has waited for, will play one or twice, and then put on a shelf. We already have to shows from MSG from the same period, and one officially from EOT. The other concerts are ultimately more of the same, unfortunately. Maybe a different song or two between the concerts, but that's about it.

I have no objection to more material from 1972, though. The Jan/Feb season has been royally cocked up by FTD, both with regards to mastering (American Trilogy FTD) and how it's been released in dribs and drabs. If FTD are going into 3CD sets, then that season is certainly a worthwhile candidate - the opening night on the first disc (soundboard), and then then the multi-tracks and any extra songs only on soundboard on the following two discs.

So far 1971 leads the votes,followed by 1970, the pre JD Sumner and the Stamps quartet era. Could one of the reasons be that fans become fed up of JD voice and his dive bombs, i wonder :|

If it's an option. And a real choice I would definitely chose the February 25 '61 concerts. No doubt about it. I don't think they exist, but if they do i would pay a lot of money to get them.

I didn't select 75 but should have. An oversight on my part. He gave sone really good shows during that year. It was certainly his last consistent year of touring quality wise. He was generally upbeat and in good voice.

Out of what remains unreleased as far as can be 'guesstimated', and given that 1961 shows are unlikely to be available to begin with, 1970 and 1971 would be the most interesting live concert years to get new releases from.

I would like to think the Memphis '61 shows will show up somewhere. 1969, 1970, 1971, and 1972 should be a priority. After that, I hope there's a final 1977 compilation.
