actually, i can think of at least 12 singles-&-such collections (some consist substantially of album tracks, b-sides, alternate versions, previously unreleased cuts, etc) -- early singles (of which 3 versions exist that i know of), palace of swords reversed, hip priest & kamerads, the collection, the 458489 a- & -b-sides collections, the totally wired 2cd, the high tension line 2cd, a past gone mad, a world bewitched 2cd, psychotick dance hall 3cd, & the new listening in collection of early '90s b-sides & such. jesus, i own something like 45 albums by these guys (nearly half of them pure studio efforts), & i think i'm just scraping the surface, though quite a few that i haven't got (& several, alas, that i have) are nonessential completist-only fare.
