Judging from how long it's been since the last one, I'd say no.

However, that doesn't mean I won't be overjoyed to be proven wrong...but I'm not feeling very optimistic I will.

I'd bet on the second coming before another archive release.

Makes you wonder. Especially after seeing Kirk West in the vault of the Big House sitting in front of hundreds of recordings sitting on shelves collecting dust.

I've got money, I want to spend it on an ABB archival release....but I guess I could just spend it on another GD release.

Still, I can't help thinking that someone is dropping the ball on this....

If the band took 6 months to get through all of the legal entanglements and remastering that came with the fifteen 2009 Beacon shows, yet have sat on one archival show for two years, I'd say if they wanted to release an archive, they would have.

The first four were really great, especially Stonybrook - while Macon and Nassau were real eye-openers for people who haven't heard a lot from those lineups like me. The Boston show was the only one I didn't buy, didn't grab me, perhaps that's the case with a lot of people and it didn't sell well. Or perhaps the band, perfectionists that they are, didn't want to release any more feeling they weren't polished enough and were over-saturating the market (if Gregg thought One More Try wasn't worthy of release, perhaps he thought the same about the archives).

Just speculation, my point is I'm not holding my breath.

The Boston show, Archive#5, (8/17/71) took a while to grow on me. but I really love it for sure....it has a very special feel to it...Duane & Berry are beautiful -it's a great show......

I agree, the shout out to J. Geils always throws me. I was born in 1967 so J. Geils for me will always be Freeze Frame and Centrefold. Also the comment I think from Duane that they can only play one more song so they go into a 20 minute WP. Classic Stuff

I have to believe there is just no $$ in it. We are a small group and yes we are loyal, but my guess is that 2,000 CDs (est.) are just not worth the time and effort...

so rhino records signs CSN, the doors and the grateful dead but no one will sign the ABB? really weak. i own all 5 archive releases plus the other random archive concerts released like the atlanta pops festival. am i honestly supposed to believe the ABB fanbase is so small now that rhino won't sign them?

Matt, look at the set lists from the Duane era shows you have on those archive CDs. Now look at the set list from arguably their best and most recognizable album/CD of all time.."Live at the Fillmore East"...who else but a "die-hard" is buying these?

Btw, I own them all too.

thats true the setlists are all pretty close with maybe 1 or 2 different tunes per concert. i own them all because duane and dickey played the songs so different everytime. still though the doors have released 3 concerts so far on rhino plus there is a felt forum boxset due in november and the setlists (other then the matrix show) are almost the same because the shows are all basically from 1970. maybe the big selling point for the doors is the studio albums rhino remastered and added bonus tracks. the ABB deserve a good remaster of the 70's studio albums with added bonus tracks.

Of course they are. In a huge way.

Just look at all the archive releases the Grateful Dead have released. Someone earlier referred to the mammoth amount of ABB tapes just sitting their gathering dust.

And apparently the entire Atlanta Pop Festival material was video taped and ready for a DVD...but it sits and sits...decade after decade.

The ABB fans are as rabid as the GD fans, we will buy and buy and buy and buy and buy, but I guess the ABB folks just arent interested in makes lots of MONEY for some bizarre reason.

They haven't signed because the Allmans probably don't want to sign. Just my guess, but the Allmans fought tooth and nail to get the rights to these shows from the vault from Universal Music, I can't imagine, after releasing 5 shows on their own, that they would turn around and sell them right back.

I don't know where to begin...It's extremely frustrating. At the very least have duplicates of the Duane era properly stored at a different location. And maybe before I pass on something will be released.

Archive releases 8/17 Boston & 9/19 Stonybrook
traded shows, 8/26 A&R Studios, & 9/16 Warehouse
I'm happy -- not that I'd be opposed to further releases of course -- they're all real nice

I love the ABB

i don't think they sell them to rhino. i know the deads contract was for 10 years or something like that and they still own all the masters of whats been released. its more like a distribution deal than anything. not sure about the doors or CSN but all of these bands have tons of archival stuff being released that sells pretty well

If releasing actual CDs won't work, just make them available as downloads for those who want them ...

Not sure if I am the only one who feels this way. I came late to the party and have only experienced the mid 90’s line up, and many shows by the incredible current line up.
What I would love to spend money on would be archive shows of the current line up, especially 2000 to present Beacon shows. Add Jimmy Herring’s 2000 summer run.

NOTE: The Black Crowes do a excellent job of this at http://liveblackcrowes.com/

Since this will not happen I will keep spending money like a drunk sailor on the incredible archive release from the Grateful Dead and the Black Crowes!

They do have a strange way of doing things...it would be nice if they'd consider the age of many of long time fans, and release these things now, instead of later.

Considering the interest in this thread, perhaps they are right....there's no enough interested buyers. Of course, our actions here could always prove that theory wrong; post here if you are interested in another archive release.
