I find it quite strange that the loudest and most persistent demands for the release of downloads of the recent KC concerts is coming from those who attended performances!
Seems some people are never satisfied, those of us who couldnít see them for a myriad of reasons are willing to wait. And if they never appear, then that is the choice of the performers.
Any chance those that did attend can have more to say about the performances (other than wanting downloads)?

A download release helps me to keep the event fresh as well as sonically fill in what I missed by bad acoustics (a lot of Mel Collins in my case). I guess weíll have to wait... sigh.
2014 Tour downloads
:: Posted by Hengus on October 20, 2014
Iím genuinely surprised by the decision not to release at least one show quickly...especially when there is clearly such a strong demand for one (from memory a 2008 recording came out very quickly after the show...and is, I think, the highest selling download to date on DGM?).
Unfortunately I guess the demand will be filled by the unofficial recordings which do exist, and in reasonable quality.
An opportunity (both for income, and to fuel interest in any upcoming activity from the band) missed, in my opinion.

if I were lucky enough to attend one of those recent 2014 Crimson performances, I would be more than content to live in íthatí moment for a lengthy period of time. A download or recording of another live performance would to me, possibly be a downer in many aspects! Whenever I attend a decent concert that blows my socks off, I donít listen to any music for weeks after, in an attempt to remain in that ízoneí for as long as possible! Alas, time passes & the ízoneí slowly fades into a memory, but usually a good one at that! Cheers.
Sid - thanks.

Thanks for the clarification. It sounds more like there arenít plans for immediate release as opposed to any downloads. Itís the difference between "wait for the goods" and "there ainít no goods."

Only in the event that DGM might use this message board to gauge interest in such things, Iíd like to state that I would prefer to be able to buy KC2014 downloads as soon as is possible prior to the release planned for spring. I havenít stopped thinking about the two shows I saw on the tour and yearn to hear that music again. Enormous, unceasing yearning.
did I miss something?
:: Posted by DanAnderson on October 19, 2014
Whatís this about no downloads for the recent tour? I keep my eyes open on this site and I donít recall any mention of no downloads. Did I miss an announcement or something?
Sid or Stormy - please clarify.
There was a news item I posted yesterday and Mr.Stormy also responded to a guestbook query on Oct 16th. "At this time there are no plans for a download from the Elements
Tour, as the multi-tracks are with jakko, and the band want to go
through all the material before any release is made."

Sid Smith sez: "there are no downloads of the 2014 tour envisaged at this stage."
As stated Jakko is working through the tapes of the concerts. Once that's been done there'll be a discussion as to the most appropriate format for release.

Your 13th October post has got to be one of the most genuine posts Iíve ever come across on this site ó thank you. I took the liberty of forwarding the entire contents of it to a very meaningful person and they were quite moved by it. Thank you again.
(On an unrelated note, and regarding the rather lame "KC DVD release" posts I made a few days ago , I wonder how I could possibly have left out Exiles, such a meaningful track which formed part of the soundtrack of my life at a very key moment in, er, my life)

Well, we have been waiting 40 years to ear One More Red Nightmare live, I suppose we could wait a bit longer. Still, no plan download with spring 2015 as a soft date is a sad news.
