What More Do We Expect?

Post by Carpentologist » 06 Oct 2018, 4:00am

Now that the long awaited anthology has arrived, what more do people expect/anticipate in the future?
For me it sort of serves as a taster of just how much material exists from the various sessions/sources that took place during the “Wilderness Years!”
At the very least I’d be expecting an Earthquake Weather reissue, possibly for its 30th anniversary next year? An expanded Permanent Record perhaps? More Sid and Nancy tracks?
I just can’t imagine Warner/Chappell acquiring the publishing rights for however much they invested without planning to release as much as possible for its investment!
What do others anticipate?

EW will be rereleased. I dont think Ignition has the rights to his original material from that album, which would explain why they only put the covers from those sessions on there. Sony released that Gangsterville record for RSD last year.

I'd love to hear there is some more Rubin material out there. There are Walker demos/outtakes, Permanent Record demos, Streetcore scraps, maybe some Global outtakes.

Given the Meskies played Silver and Gold live a few times, then it surfaces on Streetcore as a Global outtakes, I wouldn't be surprised if there were other studio covers from their live sets that we haven't heard yet...such as Ishen.

The Meskies also went straight from Global sessions to scoring some romcom. There might be a song or two there.

Whatever the case, I'd imagine it's diminishing returns from here.

I won't get my hopes up, I'll just expect them to find full band versions of every single Clash II song from the same sessions where "Do it Now" and "Sex Mad War" were recorded.
