This disc annoyed me. It was a stripped-down, single-disc version of the With the Lights Out box set, manufactured for mass consumption. Fine. I never felt the need to pay much attention to it. Oh, but wait, they put three exclusive tracks on it, because of course they did. The three exclusives were the Spank Thru demo from the original Fecal Matter cassette, the 1990 demo for Sappy, and a boom box version of Come as You Are. There were a fair amount of variants of this one, but zero vinyl, so I'm only going to list the main U.S., European, and Japanese CDs (because there was an SHM disc in Japan). If you are chasing variants of this one, you may have gone too far.
