I don't really see the point in reissuing a budget compilation like this. Maybe some VU fans will buy anything with their name on it? At a mere 10 tracks it doesn't represent particularly good value either and the sleeve art is nothing to get excited about. Why anybody would buy this in preference to any of the 4 VU studio albums - or one of the many dozens of comps that are already on the market - must be one of life's enduring mysteries. I did read somewhere that it was the only compilation issued whilst the band were still in existence. Really!? How astonishing. Zzzzz.
