That's the version of "Problems" with the horn intro.

More! I've got some bonus discs I made for already existing anthologies (John Cale's "Seducing Down The Door", Richard Thompson's "Watching The Dark") and one for the Eno Vocal box but that's just the tracks they left off his first 4 albums plus his Peel session. Anyone else got something useful?

I'm looking for a good compilation of Deconstruction era Kylie Minogue,
there has to be a good 60 mins of her songs when she was aiming to be a credible artist, and working with the Manics etc.
Stuff like her work with Towa Tei and the like....

when she was aiming to be a credible artist
As opposed to those years she was aiming to be an incredible artist? WTF does this rockist shit even mean?

I mean after the SAW days, when there was a definite push from deconstruction to get her seen as a songwriter and artist.
Definitely the record label positioning of her immediately post SAW.

It gets slagged off, that period, but the whole reason it failed was down to the record company going bust.
Yes, that only happened some years after she'd left, but it does seem that the slide was happening already.
It started fine with "Confide", number 2, but the rest seemed to get underpowered marketing...

Cover art and title:
Want to prove to the world that there's more to Daler than just "Tunak Tunak Tun"!? Okay, I left it on in the end, but seriously, paring this all down to an hour, you get a pretty amazing set. Daler Mehndi takes you to the clouds and back to the safety of your own home. Since his newer stuff is less well known I decided to start with that, then end with some real classic tunes.
1. Bhootiye (2011)2. Jogi (Tumba version) (2011)3. Koi Dheere Dheere (2007)4. Rang de Basanti (2008)5. Kach Tutt Gayi (2007)6. Patti Pudina (2001) 7. Boom Boom (2000)8. Hum Tere Hi Deewane Hain (2000) (gettin into some Daler slowjams now)9. Yug Beet Gaye (1997)10. Bolo Ta Ra Ra (1995)11. Dil Mera Nal Nal Nal (1995)12. Tunak Tunak Tun (1998)
All of these tracks are great and I stand behind every one. He's definitely done a lot more great material than this but for approximately 60 minutes I couldn't get it any better!

Ooh, I'd like to see that - I'm actually not that familiar with the ins and outs of their catalogue, but I like what I know (and obviously love a lot of related bands).
