Get yer own fucking ctachphrase.
I'm not a fan of these endless rehashes either, but no one forces you to buy anything you don't ''''''''''need''''''''''. Being a (vinyl) completist made sense in the Factory days cos it was doable and the releases tended to be worthwhile and involve the actual band, even the compilations and mixes. There's no point collecting these days (see what etc) because there have been so many pointless rehashes (International, Best of JD 08, RIAD CD 2 etc) and YouTube is such a free for all anyway.
Incidentally, if you'd like an example of decent repackaging, try the McCartney Archives. You get three options (four if you fucking hate McCartney):
1. The original album remastered but otherwise left well alone.
2. 1 plus a CD of 'surrounding' tracks - Bsides, demos, etc.
3. A lavish, individually numbered de luxe set featuring 2 plus a further CD (rarer material), a DVD (appearances, docs, private footage), a book (not a fucking booklet), links to hidden downloads, and of course the kitchen sink. Unlike my mother, it doesn't come for free, but (like my mother) you get what you pay for.
Oh, and I love the way indie snobs rip the shit out of Spice for having no talent - then get a boner every time that total spaz Bez staggers around like an epileptic. Talent.

If it was one of the Miami shows they were planning to release as a live album, I could kind of understand why they were doing it but no, there is no need to release them all as a box set to cover all the songs the played) but after Troxy, Bestival, NOMC and So It Goes being released as live albums in less than a 10 year gap there is no need to bring out any more live albums recorded in the last 10 years, they're all pretty much the same setlist with just a change of 'hilarious banter' from Mr. Sumner to liven them up. Would be nice to think we might get some amazing numbers played next year when this years shows are rescheduled that get recorded but I doubt it.
