Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?


So, I'm annoyed. So many record companies have done the reissue thing right. The Jam box set is one great example. They took pretty much every studio track and put it in the box. There was an earlier rarities disc, and they didn't double anything from that. Smart. Easy. They figgered that most fans already had the earlier disc, we did ...

Now let's go on about folks doing it WRONG !!!

I love the English Beat and am about to spend an Amazon gift certificate to get their complete output. It's simple. They only put out 3 LPs in their very short career. The reissues are the british versions, so some of the single tracks that ended up on the US LPs are missing. I guessed that and figgered that they would be on the Best Of, you know, to get you to buy another CD. They are ... minus ONE FRIGGING SONG !!! For that I need to go track down a long out of print best of CD. I can buy it on Ebay, but ... who wants to buy a CD for one song?

Yeah ... me ... like it's a surprise that I am obsessive about these things.

So does anyone have the What Is Beat? compilation CD? I just need one track off it ... grumble

and don't get me going about the Joy Division box set ...
