Questionable song selections on many of the bands. Not going to make everyone happy I’m sure, but ACR “the Fox” is not one to remember them by considering the back catalog. Would have been nice to have the Frantic Elevators original “holding back the years” curio before they morphed into simply red. Oversight to leave off The Railway Children? Odd since they were featured with an unreleased track on the cassette version before in 1988? Missing the Smiths is also odd but Moz is here on a solo track along with Marr in Electronic. Surprised label could not get a license deal for this. Oh well. Some obscure inclusions makes this box set intriguing but also incomplete with glaring omissions from the noted above especially when Joy division / new order / electronic / revenge all are featured from their family. Surprised the Other Two did not make it complete from the Jd/no offshoots...
