good CD, but not their best

For a "best of" CD this is not a very good one. You can't go wrong with the Pogues and every song on this CD is good. However it does not cover their whole career and the many styles and phases the band has seen over the years. Songs like "White City", "Fiesta", and "misty morning", while being good songs hardly deserve to be on their "best of" CD when better songs such as "Lullaby of London", Summer in Siam" and even "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" are missing.

Sayonora, Lorca's Novena, Hell's Ditch, Sunnyside of the Street, and Summer in Siam are missing. Unnacceptable.
