No no no, you don't get it. At all.
Its not as easy as "digging it up and releasing it". Not by a long shot. The band have released EVERY single concert they've filmed professionally. They've officially stated this many times.
There is NO footage from Unleashed in the East. OR ANYTHING from that time period. NOTHING is official, anything that DOES exist is bootleg or just a few second live performance taped by the BBC or some shit.
THE FOOTAGE DOES NOT EXIST. GET OVER IT.
And no, the majority of us here are NOT fan boys or girls that will buy everything they release. That is so STUPID.
I haven't bought A TOuch of Evil: Live yet, am I fan boy? I Don't overly want to buy it either. I guess according to your theory that instantly makes me not a fan boy.
As for those of us that DO buy every single release the band puts out is because #1, they love the band and will support it to no end, you CANNOT bring someone down for supporting something. That is childish and pathetic.
#2 They have a broader sense of musical acceptability and are NOT "elitists" like you seem to be. They simple have a broader range of music they enjoy, and whether you like it or not doesn't mean its wrong, what you like and dont like is your opinion, it can also make you extremely close minded at the same time. If you listen to a lot of other stuff besides typical metal, forget everything I just said.
#3 Some of us are collectors, its NICE to be able to show off something, like a collection of great music. Buying shit releases is involved in that, but thats all subjective and extremely opinion based.
The band owes us nothing. They give us quality releases (could be better though) nearly every year. They tour the world almost EVERY YEAR many times over just to show the fans there love. Thats all the band can do for us, give us a great live show while they still can, and give us great releases while they still can because once there gone thats all we have left. Personally I'm gonna treasure my Priest collection once Priest are done. Are you? [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE from Sunday, December 06, 2009 6:38:17 AM)

Spapad, you’re a nutswinger who will buy absolutely anything the band puts out. We have nutswingers on this board who even say they don’t care if just KK comes out and bangs his guitar with a stick they will still love it. They don’t care what the band puts out. If Judas Priest graces them with their presence or product they will happily buy it.
But there are some of us who are true fans and we feel that we deserve better. We shouldn’t just give our money away, they should have to earn it. The band should give us something really special. How about a DVD of a live performance of around the time of Unleashed In The East, instead of another dozen crappy best of CD’s? How fucking cool would that be? Don’t fucking tell us that this footage does not exist. Go to the warehouse and dig it up.
They owe us! The extravagant lifestyles they lead, the mansions they live in, the drugs and the alcohol they abuse and the sexual depravity they indulge in is all due to the fact the money they used to pay for it all used to be in our wallets and we were nice enough to give it to them.
