So near, but so so so far

Great idea, put together all the Roses A-sides and B-sides you can't get on the first album. I had all their 12 inch singles so had all these tracks on vinyl and couldn't wait to have them in one cd package.
That's where the great idea stopped.
This album was put together by a wally in an office with a tash, a Liverpool shirt and a male member tattooed on his forehead. Conspiracy? Has to be. Why else would someone do this?
There were some great alternative versions of I Am The Resurrection released on 12 inch, but to release a version cut short of the amazing play out is blasphemy! Why bother? What's the point? What's the meaning of life?
I haven't given this 1 out of 5 just because it has some great B-sides on it (proving what a superb band they were) and if you're new to the Roses it will impress you but this could have been done so, so, so much better.
Will someone at Silvertone please contact me so a quality 'Complete' can be issued.
