Marilyn - Despite Straight Lines: The Very Best Of cdsingles

10 years on from the Cherry Pop edition. It must be time for another revisit of this great album. A new edition including the 12" of "You Don't Love Me" and maybe Marilyn has now mellowed regarding including "Pray For That Sunshine"? We can but hope...

Aside from missing the single "Pray for That Sunshine" (which Maz requested to be removed, even though the song title is still listed in the back of the booklet from the original LP sleeve), this reissue is also missing Maz's ace cover of Diana Ross' "I Ain't Been Licked" (from 1979's "The Boss" LP) - too bad, as otherwise, it's nice to have on CD.

Sloppy track listing errors, the erroneous 'Very Best Of' retitle and the loss of "Pray For That Sunshine", not to mention other still missing b-sides, marr this otherwise welcome reissue. Ideally this should have been reissued as a double CD with the complete album on disc 1 and ALL the mixes and b-sides on disc 2. As it is, it's a lost opportunity.
