Dear Cherry Red, if you ever reissue this set, it's perhaps best that you make it more easy to be handled so that apes like me don't break it within the first five minutes of handling the digipack. Thanks in name of all apes.

Dear Cherry Red, I can understand not including the Smiths or New Order, or even no Go-Betweens or Orange Juice... but no Felt? Why!?
