Best of 1990-2000 also had B Sides

right thats been mentioned. he wants all of them not a handful of the 90s ones.



Your not going to get them all. Collecting is a black hole.

huh? i've got them all though...all the deluxes, the 90+ singles ive got... i mean...i'm confident i'm not missing any.

If you don't have yellow version of x released in Guam in 1982 you don't have them all.

i have all the b-sides. which is what we were discussing. no i don't have a physical copy of every cd printed. you're right...

Agreed. It's a black hole. Took almost 20 years but I have every album release (vinyl/cd) and most of the cd/vinyl singles (though not international variants). Just completed the original 12 inch vinyl singles for JT.  But the Australian single OTH (? I think) still eludes me as does ROK Fire. I love the hunt but it can get crazy. Be warned.  Lol!!

Discogs and Ebay are your friend. I gave up a long time ago then both of those sites happened and I doubled my collection. I got OTH at least 25 years after release.

I get with the proliferation of random remixes and live stuff, it's hard to find all the more recent b-sides and stuff, but the deluxe versions of Boy, October, War, TUF, and TJT should all come with the complete b-sides for each album.  AB comes darn close, barring a few remixes, I think.  But there's way too much material to fit on a single CD, anyway.

\NLOTH had tons of remixes/live stuff and the song NLOTH 2. Winter and Soon were released on vinyl only. Or maybe Winter wasn't released? i dont remember the story on that, outside if being on the Linear DVD.

Yeah, I admittedly lost interest in the b-sides after ATYCLB, though I did download a few from HTDAAB, U218, and NLOTH 2 when I saw I could get them on iTunes for a buck a piece.

Not sure if it fits the B-Sides catgegory completely but the fan club CD "Medium, Rare & Remastered" featured some great B-Sides like "Fast Cars" and "Neon Lights."  It was a fan club exclusive so I'm not sure how hard it is to track down.

obviously you aren't missing much. Winter, Soon and Crystal Ballroom are the best non-album tracks of the past decade.

I did get the version on SOI with the bonus tracks. I just have NLOTH 2 from that album...I'd consider getting the ones you mentioned if they were available, but I'm not much a fan of that album/era.
