Just wanted to chime in on this thread. As an advid collector of Priest live boots, I too have experienced the same thing in which many shows proly have a soundboard recording but were never released. The one that comes to mind right off the bat is King Buscuit 1986 St. Louis show. If you didnt record it when it was broadcast over the FM waves, you missed it b/c the recording circulating is an audience one, which is passable at best. I would try to find the best recordings from each tour/era, and yes most of the time they are soundboard, but there are some really poor audience recordings (Reading Fest 75, NY Palladium 77, Hammersmith Odeon both 1978 & 79 are a few). Here are a couple from each tour which represent the best audio boot recordings I have come across. They are as follows:

 1978 - Tokyo (The video release is good, but there are 2 additional ones out there that are vg.. Far East Tokyo etc..)
 1979 - Osaka (recorded a day or two b4 but right around unleashed in the east), Palladium NYC Nov 79 (last date of Killing Machine tour) FM broadcast is vg, vinyl not so good
 1980 - Denver & Syracuse (Not a great recording, but vg)
 1981 - Palladium NYC Aug 81 & London Dec 81
 1982 - King Buscuit was decent, but not great sounding, Memphis/San Antonio official release (Live Vengeance)
 1983 - US Festival May 83 & Dortmund Dec 83
 1984 - Long Beach, King Buscuit Alberquerque, Montreal (extremely hard to find!) 
 1985 - Live Aid (3 Songs)
 1986 - Dallas (Official Release), Gottenburg & Toledo OH
 1988 - New Haven CT

No Painkiller here folks, thats when I stop with the Priest live boots. I hope this helps in your quest. Plenty of good quality traders on the net to add to your collection. On the video side though, IMO: it is a shame Priest doesnt have more in the vault and dont grasp the past. This to me is sad. Thanks.
