Helo
Not to be a pain in the arse, but I really cannot do with bonus tracks, unless they're all correct and master-tape sourced. The ones on the Music On Vinyl release are a mixture of both, plus duplicate tracks (Quiet Life Extended Version IS the album version). I know they're on an extra disc, but hopefully there will be a re-release one day with just the album itself.

Zavevidi
Nice to mention Mick on the sleeve. Let's not talk about the choice/naming of tracks though . . .

Kadar
Very fair point!

Kulasius
I agree, 'odd' choice of bonus tracks but hey, I won't quibble when you get FIFTEEN spread across 2 extra slabs of gorgeous, quality vinyl...
