    The whole 3 CD version is a tagging nightmare [2]. But I definitely don't agree with MattWhitby. Good to hear a few new gems from the BFF treasury and Ben has so much character in his live shows that it completely justifies hearing an old track again for me. I'm really enjoying the compilation.
