Pat Dull - this year I am looking forward to the Cheap Trick 2x lp of *somewhat* rarities (many already on CD bonuses), and anything on Parlophone! In the future, the Steve Abini re-recording of In Color would be the perfect RSD release! Also the legendary 2x lp version of Combat Rock (my least favorite Clash LP tho) called "Rat Patrol From Fort Bragg."
