Re: New JBC Comp. CD on Rev Ola..Taking Track Requests!

Yes, it would be great to have these obscurities available on CD, but are muffled demos and live cover versions really going to bring the JBC any new fans? If someone had tried to turn you on to the JBC by playing ALMOST BROOKLYN, do you think you'd have given them a second chance?

That said, SPOOKY should certainly be there, and the version of GROOVING IN THE BUS LANE from the vinyl *Big Questions* also has a lot to recommend it. But why a live version of SWEET JANE when one could be recommending GIRLS SAY YES? Why CHRISTMAS WITH THE PYGMIES rather than PINEAPPLE TUESDAY?

One could continue, but you get the point?
