Dazz posted:So to ignore it, or anything that was previously issued, seems to be another way of saying it never happened and we only ever issued real good stuff that we liked. In some cases you can understand why a band would rather not acknowlege some excrement that they issued but there is nothing at wrong with CH's version of "She's Not There" other than a member doesn't believe it's as good as the original (or even Santana's 1977 version apparently, so abhorrent is the CH version). Which in plain language is a carp assertion.
Wow. What about the many live tracks included on B-sides over the last 30 years? I'm pretty sure many of those aren't included with the reissues either. Is that also some insidious attempt to rewrite history? Sorry, but that's some supremely paranoid thinking, and I can't make much sense of it.
Maybe Neil's viewpoint has changed in the course of 20 years? Does he need anyone's permission anyway? I don't see any justification for attaching sneaky motives to these decisions.
I once had an mp3 of that track, and honestly, I remember thinking it was quite a generic, serviceable version. Yes, well played and sung of course, but forgettable. So I can't agree that it's anything special and personally don't care at all that it's not included.
