    Frustrating, to say the least, when you´ve already purchased the Elektra Years coloured vinyl boxset. The inclusion of all this additional tracks in that boxset would´ve made it a much more enjoyable product.

    Just what I needed…

    I thought it was enough to have a boxed set of the first 5 studio albums on cd. Which have and enjoy.
