A missed opportunity, I feel. It's a shame that a lot of the UK 12" mixes were omitted in favour of the oft released US ones, what with it being the country where the band are from. The UK 12s of Shout, Everybody... and Mothers Talk are all missing and these would be great to own on CD. I've given this one a miss and await the next re-release!
