Reply to "Does anyone else feel a bit let down about these Archive Releases?"

Something is bizarre about the whole Nassau official releases.  The Live 75-85 versions are spectacular.  Then we get Held Up Without A Gun on Essential, which, I'm certain, was lifted right from the Nassau Night bootleg.  I'm certain that they released a bootleg.   Why didn't Clearmountain handle that song?  I guess it was cheaper to download Nassau from Jungleland and release Held Up for the 7 of us who don't know what Jungleland is.  Then we get the nugs show, which we all assumed would be something akin to 75-85...hopefully...and it's not even close.   They should admit their error - and just let J.A. fix it and re-release it - let us all download it again.   It's just a travesty that such a classic show remains less than stellar.  Much less.  Especially after listening to Rendezvous, Sandy etc...from 75-85.  

I, for one, love the piano at Nassau.  It gives the show a flavor.
