Most of us will be I think. Sad thought. I'm hoping the release/s happen sooner than later. For example, I know Rainbow was worth the wait for me personally, but it took so long for that to happen.

But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I would say The Game seems the obvious follow up but it surely depends on the sales of the NOTW box. Plus, the NOTW thing seems to have been quite the promotional circus tied in with the QAL tour imagery and so on, which is much less likely to be the case in 2020. And there are no visuals for The Game as strong as for NOTW..

Also, there's no equivalent of the extensive Bob Harris footage.
Therefore I wonder if they'd be more likely to focus on the Game and the subsequent tours including the South American stint. Lots and lots of potential footage there and an actual story /narrative to be told, which takes us from AOBTD/CLTCL and their unprecedented American/worldwide success, through to the trailblazing tour that turned them into a stadium act.

"Gluttons for Punishment - a Retrospective"

There does seem to be a bit of footage of stages being set up, over which some commentary could be added.

After all, the alternative would be concert footage, which is patently ridiculous...

Jazz feels like the album I know the least about, beyond it being recorded outside the UK for tax reasons, and a few of the individual stories behind the songs (eg Bicycle Race).

It's also got incredible visual imagery, and really highlights the eclectic nature of the band, with heavy contributions from Brian and most notably, Roger. Plus it has Don't Stop Me Now, which has gone on to be probably their most popular song in the UK despite not really doing much initially. I think it's got to be a shoe-in if NOTW does well enough.

This maybe, it would certainly work, but then why not do the same with the other albums. Format could be CD booklet CD 1 original album, CD 2 demos rare unreleased, CD 3 live album from associated tour. And a seperate DVD of any gigs from the period.

Too simple and not expensive enough though!
