List: Officially released NEARfest shows

As inspired by tehcrazydiamond, here's what I believe is a fairly exhaustive, but probably missing a few, list of NEARfest performances which have seen official release. Performers with a NFR in parenthesis have seen their show released on NEARfest Records, otherwise the info in said parenthesis will generally list title and/or label the performance was released on.

Pure Reason Revolution (NFR, plus 2 songs on DVD in special edition of Vincit Amor Omnia, Superball)

NOTE: Hawkwind and Magma did not allow filming or recording of their sets.

Rumoured for possible future release (NB: these are just rumours based on best available information, and as such should be taken with as many grains of salt as you'd like):

Yezda Urfa (Marc Miller has been mixing, and in November 2008 mentioned he was close to a final mix)

Banco 2008

Camel 2003 (possible DVD)

Riverside 2006 (possible DVD, original rumour was that it would be packaged in Special Edition of their most recent album)

FM 2006

Please also note: NEARfest is far from the only festival to have some excellent performances released officially. ProgDay, 3RP, and ROSfest, among others, have seen some excellent live releases come from their festival performers and performances.

I'd be interested in hearing the FM and Hackett releases.
John Wetton played w/ Hackett for a minute.
I don't see FM as being prog though ... nor UFO for that matter; anyone know if there are two UFO bands?
