Imagine the "Opening '72" CD, with a killing performance of Elvis. The sound on this release is way too soft. This could be the chance for '2001' to do justice to this incrible show.
Same goes to the "Birmingham In Birmingham" release. The show is better than the "a Hot Winter Night In Dallas" (Fort Baxter), but the sound isn't as good as it could be with some remastering.
I can understand that they won't do anything with the excellent "Stand By Me" set, since '2001' released the "How Great Thou Art Sessions" CD's. But it would be a golden opportunity to re-release remastered versions of "Burning In..." and "Opening Night '72"...
Will we ever see this happening? Just a few import labels have re-released their CD's with improved sound or artwork.

Sometimes I think we fans are far too critical of the sound quality on both imported and FTD releases. The quality of soundboard tapes varies, but in most cases it is quite acceptable, and a little tape hiss or distortion on a soundboard tape is better option to me than an audience recording of the same show that was taped from under somebody’s overcoat at the back of the hall.
Neither BMG or the bootleggers can remix soundboard tapes, so in most cases what you hear on these releases is as good as it gets.

Which ones do you have in mind?
Personally I prefer a good audience recording to less atmospheric soundboard (oh no, the old discussion again! ).
Well, if you listen closely to New Years Eve '76 I pretty much think they did by parting different frequency ranges to different tracks and "re-mixed" the whole thing this way. At least this is what I can imagine. But I think you need some know-how to do this.
