Re: creator; or, this magnificent bird will rise

I've written elsewhere on this blog about the noble demise of the original Sonya's Sisters Solidarity Mix.

Kinda rare 7" featured on Disc 2

Brief Liners
I dropped one track—Consolidated, "Dysfunctional Relationship"—because it was an overly elaborate pun that proved distinctly unfunny. Time Weals All Hounds!

I swapped a couple live for studio tracks "Apron Strings" was a studio single on the original, and "Steaming" was a live cut on the original as well

*=CD-only track
+=CD track substitution

So Hope You're Happy Now!
