If we're still talking about B-sides of singles, then is this really
fair. To my knowledge I have seen a grand total of *1* Jazz Butcher
single ever... I think it's a vinyl version of Girl Go. Were there singles
for Condition Blue? I wasn't aware of any of them. :( Let's face it, in
the past (and hopefully this will change), availability of JB albums and
singles really stinks. And I've read that supposedly Canada is better
than the States, in this respect? I mean - I seriously doubt I will
ever be able to obtain ANY Jazz Butcher singles at this rate. And for
some people in cultural wasteland (you pick your choice of wasteland -
I'm not trying to single out anyplace :) the chances are even slimmer.

I've never seen a JB video, for that matter!

(Yes, I haunt used record stores, and that's why I *do* have most of the
albums. Are we all supposed to have so much money that we can import-order
everything we don't have? :)

What about the possibility of an official release of a B-sides compilation?
Or would there not be enough market? *sigh*

Well, just my $0.03 Canadian. :)
