Greatest Pretenders album - but missing tracks?

The original line-up of The Pretenders kicked butt. I definitely plan on getting this re-mastered CD, as well as the "Pretenders II" re-mastered CD. But, if you take a look at the 2-CD set being sold on, you'll see a different play list for the "extras" CD. Where is the live BBC recording of "Mystery Achievment" here on iTunes??? Make sure you're buying the complete release here on iTunes before purchasing!

The best album ever!!!

This is a rockin' album. I too have played the heck out of my vinyl. I have it on cd and it was one of the first ones I downloaded on my iPod. Different styles throughout from Brass in Pocket to a techno Space Invader, to the hard rockin Mystery Achievement and TATTOOED LOVE BOYS ( best song ever!!!). Start from the beginning and listen to it all the way through, LOUD. Then hit REPEAT!

Still a classic

I was a sophomore in high school in 1980 when I first heard Brass In Pocket and I thought "Wow, this chick rocks!". When your debut album is this good, you've set the bar impossibly too high for yourself. I still have my worn out vinyl that I will always cherish. I can tell my daughter this is what REAL rock music sounded like. Today's rockers can only dream of sounding as good as Chrissie Hynde. She is a true original. For anyone under 25, download this NOW and compare it to what you're listening to to now.

Over the years, the Pretenders became a vehicle for guitarist/vocalist Chrissie Hynde's songwriting, yet it was a full-fledged band when it was formed in the late '70s. With their initial records, the group crossed the bridge between punk/new wave and Top 40 pop more than any other band, recording a series of hard, spiky singles that were also melodic and immediately accessible. Hynde was an invigorating, sexy singer who bent the traditional male roles of rock & roll to her own liking, while...
