"Although this can verge on the positively anal. I'm not too interested in the difference in mixes between releases especially if the only difference might be that the guitar was on the left in one recording and the right on another.

As is usual with this sort of collection it's a mixed bag.

But what is "as usual" is my not understanding the poetry at all. I really don't get it.
