There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

No link mate, just the pic.

Potentially very exciting.

I personally would have preferred another career overview comp, but more unreleased/rare stuff can only be good.

Heston always got the scoop.

001 was well done, so I have high hopes for this. Hopefully not just reissuing the Meskie stuff with Acton again.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

This looks like a leak done by mistake, rather than a legit promo. Still no sign of it anywhere yet.
But looking at the image, and the title, I'd suggest the first two pink-label LPs are the 'Rock Art' album, the next two white labels are 'Global a Gogo', the orange is 'Streetcore'.... so that leaves two mystery LPs.
Acton gig? (already released a few years ago for RSD)
Remixes/ B-sides?
Further live tracks from the few recorded shows that have given B-sides etc? (100 Club, Brixton Academy, er, can't remember any others)
Studio outtakes??

Someone mentioned pre-release in the post, if that's any help?

Trying not to get my hopes up for any Streetcore outtakes/half-finished tracks like Dakar Mean Time or Guitar Slinger Man.

I'd be happy with soundboard live recordings of those tunes. I'm looking forward to this. Especially any outtakes/alternates from Global A Go-Go. There's hopefully some good live material, too. Most of the live b-sides and bonus tracks have focused on cover songs. It'd be great to hear some of the original tunes, too.

Cool! With 002 reference too. Where’s the announcement?
