  1. Regarding the Bauhaus 5 albums box:

    It is missing the following tracks which were released on the expanded CD reissues:
    In the Flat Field
    Untitled 1.24
    God in an Alcove (flexi version) 4.08

    Harry 2.47
    1. David Jay 2. Peter Murphy 3. Kevin Haskins 4. Daniel Ash 6.37
    Satori 4.36

    The Sky’s Gone Out
    Patry of the First Part 5.26

    Burning From The Inside
    Here’s The Dub 3.19
    Departure 4.49

    It does include a handful of tracks that weren’t on those reissues. Most are included in either ‘1979-1983 Volume Two’ or the ‘Crackle’ best of comp.

    ‘Poison Pen’ is included. Not sure if it is the BBC version from the Swing The Heartache comp.

    ‘Spirit in the Sky’ is included which is rare.
