  • It looks like they left out the two shorter songs and the secret song from Pirate Prude, which is ridiculous. That EP is a classic. This is the kind of release that is only for completists anyway, so why leave out stuff? Mary has said that she dislikes American Jean, so I guess there was never any hope of us getting a nicer-quality version of Helium’s very first single.
