    Bit disappointing when too many good tracks are missing, Pray for That Sunshine, I Ain't Been Licked, You Don't Love Me 12" but instead we get 3 x Cry And Be Free, 3x Calling Your Name (and Marilyn said many times he hates that song?) and Raining Again (dub), the only reason I never brought it years ago was the tracks that are missing, Hmmm bit of a silly move there. *but im not complaining now I have it as I just paid $4 in an OP shop on the CD shelf !!... bargain !

      It's all been said . All I want is the original cd including "pray for that sunshine". Until then I will play tape and album.

        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.

            Maz took off "Pray for That Sunshine".
