It is notable for containing a unique remix of "Won't Get Fooled Again" and for being one of the few compact disc appearances of the extended version of "Magic Bus".

my copy of this 2 uk lp set from 1985 states AS SEEN ON T.V in small text on the front sleeve, im wondering was there 2 versions of this compilation as my copy was obviously a collection offered on t.v in the uk back in 1985, .......

All of the releases I've seen have that text, the exception being the first double CD pressing. The album wasn't sold as part of a TV offer, it's just that it was advertised on TV. The hope was that a casual buyer seeing the text would be reminded of what they'd heard on the advert and be triggered to buy the album.The saddest "as seen on TV" type of thing I've come across with The Who was the promotional campaign for the 1996 reissue of the My Generation single. Clearly the people at Polydor thought the British public might be lacking in prior awareness of such an obscure track, so plastered all the promo material with "THE SONG FROM THE CALIPO ADVERT".

thin/tin sound on this one..
