This should have been the ultimate issue of two classic Swans albums, with the inclusion of the beautiful track "Blind" which was left out on the original release of White Light.
Disappointingly however, for some unfathomable reason, several tracks on the White Light disc are not the original versions, but rather the (imho) inferior versions off the "Various Failures" compilation. I would recommend getting the originals instead.
