Yeah, that's why I love that deluxe version, too. Those added songs and different mixes makes the album feels much more complete.

But I understand why it's not on the normal album. It just don't really fit. Probably because of the 'na na na na' on Luficer's Hands and the 'oehoeh' on Crystall Ballroom.

I've thought about this myself.  Here's what I'd pick:

TUF.  The second disc only has a few misses--the remixes to Wire and the pointless inclusion of 11 o'clock Tick Tock really needn't be there.  Otherwise, it's a great set of music, spanning live stuff, b-sides, and other rarities.

TJT.  Except my enjoyment of the second disc drops precipitously after the proper b-sides.

AB.  Although again, all of the b-sides are great, and a few of the "new" tracks.  But then you get to Everybody Loves a Winner, and Heaven and Hell, which both just slog.

October.  It's a mixed bag, but there's some really good live material, and I love the alternate recordings of those 2-3 songs they did.  That version of Scarlet is great--very ambient.

War.  Too many remixes.

SOI.  Eh.  I don't have patience for the acoustic sessions.  The two "b-side" songs and Invisible are about all I need.
