Default B sides/12" album idea

even if it was just an mp3 only download, could be superb...

CD 1

1. Folitician (12" single version)
2. I wont close my eyes (12" single version)
3. So here i am (12" single version)
4. Love is all is alright (12" single version)
5. One a penny
6. I've got mine
7. Dubmobile
8. Sufferin'
9. Frilla
10. Nkomo a go-go (dance mix)
11. D.U.B (dub mix)
12. Mek Ya Rok

CD 2

1. Sing our own song (version)
2. All i want to do (12" mix)
3. Dread dread time
4. Gator
5. Crisis
6. Lickwood
7. Splugen
8. First shot
9. Misspent youth
10. Council house
11. Jungle love
12. Chronic
13. Bad ekko
14. Its true
15. In the park

CD 3

1. Now you see it
3. King of the hill
3. High on a breeze
4. Dont forget to smell the roses
5. Destructive dub
6. Shotta dub
7. Reasons dub

Cd 3 is a bit thin, obviously there are dozens more different mixes you could add in, but this is pretty much every b side i think

Just a few missing off your list there

But yeah I agree, it would be great to see the b-sides / remixes / 12" Versions get an official release, be it on CD or download

All for the instrumentals on an official release, but not really interested in the thought of the older vocal mixes. I think it's best to leave them to rest.

Well something like that I think would be better then the countless bargain greatest hits compilations which seem to have appeared since the bankruptcy case . Come on Virgin/ Universal use your imagination .

I love the old dubs and mixes, but the problem these days is this: The band would owe royalties to Ali, Astro and Mickey, if they ever re-released any of these old songs that featured them. I really don't think UB40 wants go putting money in their pockets...

The only argument to that is well surely Virgin/Emi/Universal are still putting money in their pockets by releasing greatest hits compilations after greatest hits compilations under different guises .
