Why bother issuing a 2-on-1 CD if you are going to omit songs? (As noted above, they left off "Pretty Smart On My Part" from the Diablo Guapo album.) It was most likely a licensing issue, but come on. It's also strange how rare this CD got in a relatively short amount of time. I know Homestead has a bit of an infamous reputation, but in this case it's definitely better to own the originals of the 2 albums - whether you prefer CD's OR vinyl. The one good thing that came out of the mid-decade revisiting of Bastro's work is that we got the "Antlers" live album.
