  1. If they really wanted this to sell they would include some multitracks and unreleased takes. Anyone who gives a damn about digging has all these tunes already.

  2. I agree with haroon. Anybody that knows music and vinyl digging should already have these songs…or at least know about them.

  3. Me and my greatest friend was just having a conversation on this very subject and we decided to look it up and discovered your internet site. Quite informative information.
