I do not personally have this record, though I thought I should let you know about it because it is a greatest hits compilation of everything from Forever Since Breakfast (1986) through Same Place The Fy Got Smashed (1990). Other than glaring ommisions Land of Danger, The Tumblers, and A Portrait Destroyed By Fire, this is one hell of a collection, and an excellent portrait of early Guided By Voices. I'm assuming it is also extremely hard to find nowadays, especially since it was made in Germany. However, for someone just getting into the Box boxset, it is a virtual guide to its contents...
Every song except Crux, Hey Hey Spaceman, and Liar's Tale made my personal GBV playlist. Crux didn't make the cut do to its instrumental nature, and I still can't figure out how Hey Hey Spaceman got thrown onto this collection. I revisited Liar's Tale and have grown to appreciate it bit more, however not enough to put on the list. The only three songs I took for my playlist from Sandbox were also the only ones included on this album. I may have to make myself a copy of this greatest hits package (using the songs I own of course).
