The two versions of "Wish" in England-I'm getting a little tired of having to buy imports of U.S. bands such as Belly, Bad Religion, etc., get with it U.S. record companies!!!-are now no longer worth the dough, despite the nice little box they give you (bless their generous hearts, choke, wheeze) for ripping you off, making you buy two CDs when all six tracks would obviously have fit on one. What you do get are interesting demo versions of that dazzling a-side (rawer, and more live, but less go-for-broke and grooving), and "The Revolving Door" (more sparse), but the rest is the two tracks now found on "Hello Amsterdam," and, inexplicably, the LP's "Cape Canaveral." For super-fans and the idle-rich only.
