I have to agree with Dr. Ed on the Fishcoteque selections... how can Swell NOT be chosen for this compilation...and Chickentown what about The Best Way or even better Susie. Someone should sit down with Pat and make sure he knows what people really like....!

Although I must say I will be quite happy when it get's here, I just ordered it yesterday from CDNOW.

being a crypto-anal-retentive englishman, I reserve judgement. However, isn't it a bid of an odd and selective, erm, selection from fishcotheque on here? I mean, where are the good ones?

Get It Wrong is (two knock'em'dead clever lyrics aside) IMHO the weakest song on that album and yet it makes it all the way to the compilation.

...Or do the liner-notes explain the selection?
