A DeLuxe edition of Argus was published in 2007.
Later some web shops presented information of an expanded edition of Live Dates. Release year was 2025, which to me means Universal put the re-releases of Wishbone Ash albums on hold.
Here's what's known of the planned expanded edition of Live Dates:
