Whatever the case, there's no excuse for leaving it out. This kind of omission can greatly disappoint an unsuspecting buyer who expects this to simply be, a nicely remastered version of the original, with no changes.
All I would ask is , if they're going to EXCLUDE tracks that WERE INCLUDED on the original release, just change the title to something like "MOST OF THE BEST.." or "THE PERSONAL FAVORITES OF RAY DAVIES."
All this being said, "Come Dancing: The Best Of- 1977-1986" is STILL a good collection that DOES include most of the great tracks from this era. Hearing great tracks like "LOW BUDGET", "SLEEPWALKER", "A ROCK 'n' ROLL FANTASY", "CATCH ME NOW I"M FALLING", "DO IT AGAIN", "DESTROYER" and "FATHER CHRISTMAS" in glorious 20-bit remastered fashion is a JOY! I just wish that for the 'casual' KINKS fan, "JUKE BOX MUSIC" was here too.
I recommend this KINKS collection, as long as you purchase the "SLEEPWALKER" album with it; so that you can enjoy the rollicking "JUKE BOX MUSIC."
