No Islands on the 70s list? I used to love that song, I have to go back and listen to it, it's been too long.
I don't mind that one, in fact in doing this comp I rediscovered how much I like that album - Red is the only other one to boast 3 tracks. But my preference lay with the 3 tracks I've included. As I use 80-minute discs I always have to "murder some darlings" and frustrating as it can get, I quite enjoy the pruning and honing it down. Just running this one through, I'm really pleased with it. I stuck the tuning-up/rehearsal bit (edited down) from the end of Islands on to the start of Prelude and the whole thing made a very nice tranquil conclusion following the fury of the live Schizoid.
