I've just checked my copy of the cd, as you say Sugarman, the two extra tracks aren't listed.

They show up correctly when I've ripped to iTunes, but don't appear when ripping to Media Player.


I didn't know the extra tracks were on the cd until I actually played it, It's strange that they never appeared again on any other More Specials CD Reissues? Smile

I would have thought that Why Argue In Vain.would have been included on the MOR Specials release, as it is a museum piece, in that it included a guide vocal that wasn't used, but the music was (Holiday Fortnight).

Agreed. It would have been interesting to have had demos of songs especially Can't Argue With Fate / Holiday Fortnight - maybe they could do an Anthology (like The Beatles did)?

The release of those Deluxe edition cd's was a missed opportunity to unearth unheard material, demos, sessions, rehearsals, live recordings?

Thankfully In the Studio did include some unheard Instrumental versions Smile

Why Roddy's song wasn't included on More Specials will remain a mystery?
