here's what i want, in no order

dirty mind/controversy sde's. i don't wanna hear it from anyone about how "there's not enough material" or that they should "bundle the two together" because we both know that's horseshit. second coming, which was woefully incomplete btw, would be excellent with the controversy sde only for that delicious shot-in-film footage

i want whatever's left outtakes wise from 93-95, but i don't trust the estate to handle it properly and with the nuance it requires. it would be futile to attempt a standalone come or tge sde, this era is one they will surely struggle with unless they wise up overnight.

similarly, the early graffiti bridge period is one i don't trust the estate to handle well, but if it were done correctly it would yield a revelatory and one of a kind archival release... this weaves in and out with rave 89' thus complicating things further.

my request is no more bullshit one-off albums (to clarify, i'm speaking on things like piano and mic and originals... stuff like W2A is a-ok with me cause it's the real deal), no more half assing deluxe packages, and change your view of what an archival releases could and should be. take notes from dylan's team, and by that i don't mean release everything, but rather consider what you're releasing and adjust contents accordingly. the guy is gone, this is for the benefit of the scholars and music listening public, spinning everything into some masterpiece and elaborately constructed narrative to sell people hype is doing the music a disservice and actively hindering actual deep dives into his work, of which we should've gotten several by now.

word.

did i say all this? what i really want is more makeup

Your wish has been granted. wink
