I bought the cd for skinny puppy - Dig it version, the version on this collection is different from the version on Mind cds ( issues and Reissues) ,
the version of Dig it on this collection is the version on the Vinyl and the cassette of Mind .
The version here Superior than the version on mind cd, in this version the Guitar is much lower in terms of volume in the mix and all the sounds blend together perfectly, even the vocals are more powerful.
This is the only cd where you can find the vinyl version of Dig It.

I was pleased to discover that the rest of the collection is also great.

best tracks: Throbbing Gristle – Hamburger Lady , Test Dept. – Kick To Kill , Coil -Panic , Einstürzende Neubauten – Yü Gung ,
Cabaret Voltaire – Nag Nag Nag , Front 242 – Funkahdafi , Clock DVA – The Hacker (Video Mix) ,
Meat Beat Manifesto – Psyche-Out ,Ministry – Stigmata , KMFDM – Godlike-Doglike .
