there is just no reason to justify releasing something from 2005, not even "library diversity." the SU songs absolutely sucked in 2005. some of them are good now, but they all were dreadful back then. nobody is going to listen to bad versions of bad songs just to hear something different.
and then being that it was an album tour, the only other songs besides SU songs that you'll get are ants, rapunzel, two step, nancies, etc, that you and everybody else already has a ton of.
my first concert was scranton 2005 (6.22). there was a great core of classic songs that night: OSW, DDTW, nancies crash, everyday, BOWA, warehouse, jimi, too much, and two step.
that is a solid starting point for a show. throw in songs like BEF, bartender, what you are, PFWYG, rhyme & reason, the stone, and say goodbye and you'd have a really good show worthy of release. but instead of those 7 songs, they played 7 SU songs. we don't need more releases of that starting core, and nobody wants releases of undeveloped SU songs, so there is no point of releasing that show.
