I am still not convinced that "more is better" Phil. Have you heard some of the garbage Prince has been putting out in recent years? Do we need endless streams of Live Pearl Jam CD's from every show they have done? Probably not. I am a collector too, and I buy my share of obscurities by bands I like, but there comes a point of oversaturation in/by the market in general.

The Boston contractual situation with CBS/Epic is one that has been well documented and was settled in court- hence the last 3 albums have been released on MCA, which includes the "Best Of". So really the deal from 1975 (when they were signed) doesn't apply, and hasn't since the mid-80's.

I am also not of the mindset that AOR needs a shot in the arm by bands like Boston, Styx and Journey. It won't happen. These guys have had thier time, and the world has moved on, but this has been touched on many times here before....
