I may buy it-

It just really sucks that they're blowing this opportunity--

They would be better off making it a 3 CD set (ala Dylan's Biograph) and REALLY include all worthy tracks- that would be enlightening and interesting.

I also wouldn't have a problem if it was SPECIFICALLY touted as "tracks selected in memory of George by his family and closest friends"- that would be cool. But not HITS.

Would have been nice to have some remastered versions of "You", "Dark Horse", etc. Was expecting a bit more. :-(

It seems they've done this ass about face. Surely it would have made sense to have digitally remastered the "Extra Texture" & "Dark Horse" albums first, and then released this. Then they could have included "You", "Dark Horse" & "Ding Dong" instead of the live stuff. Only good thing about this set is the packaging (some great pics) and the inclusion of "I don't Want To Do It" & "Cheer Down".
Man I could smell your breath a mile away.

I think its a very good "VOLUME ONE" disc that desperatly needs a Volume 2. Here's my tracklist for that in this exact playing order:

Crackerbox Palace
Beware of Darkness
Cloud Nine
Living In a Matereal World
Taxman [Live in Japan]
Here Comes The Moon
You
Life Itself
Dark Horse
Love Comes to Everyone
This Song
Bangla Desh
Faster
That's The Way It Goes
Handle With Care [Traveling Wilburys]
This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying) (2000)
Brainwashed

I very much doubt there will be a second volume but there is a better chance of his remaining albums getting re-released at some point. Would be nice to have some remastered versions of "You" and "Dark Horse", among other things.
