1. Natural Blues (Mike D Remix) - Moby

Beastie Boy's remix of Moby's Top 20 hit from the Play album. This full length version hadn't been commercially released in the UK, though an edited version appeared on the Natural Blues CD single.

2. Ymaelodi A'r Ymylon - Super Furry Animals

From the best selling Welsh languge album ever, Mwng, this, one of the album's highights was released on this CD before the album release. The title translates as 'Joining The Periphery'.

3. T-Spot - Bentley Rhythm Ace

BRA's second album For Your Ears Only was ignored on release and more or less signalled the end of the big beat duo. This track was, again, released on the CD before the album. It turned up later on a Nik-Naks advert which probably earned them more royalties than the album itself...

4. Swastika Eyes (David Holmes Mix) - Primal Scream

Awesome Holmes remix of prime Scream Team from the classic XTRMNTR. Inexplicably only released on 12" promo, this is still the only official place to find this remix.

5. Everybody's Stalking (Demo Version) - Badly Drawn Boy

Another coup for Select. Back when BDB was the ultimate name-drop artist after a slew of EP releases, this rough cut preceded the album version on his Mercury Music Prize winning debut The Hour Of Bewilderbeast. It's still only available here.

6. The Sound Of Fear - Eels

Taken from E's third, Daisies Of The Galaxy.

7. Second Foot Stomp - Clinic

Another album trailer, this one preceding Clinic's debut Internal Wrangler.

8. Holy Calamity (Bear Witness II) - Handsome Boy Modeling School

A collaboration between De La Soul producer Prince Paul and Dan The Automator, this was lifted from the album So...How's Your Girl?

9. A Tribute To - The For Carnation

Post-rock from former Slint member Brian McMahan. This is taken from 2000's self titled second album.

10. The Distance From Her To There - Lambchop

A straight lift from the critics' favourite, 'Nixon'.

11. New Paths To Helicon (Part 1) - Mogwai

Rare Radio 1 Evening Session version of Mogwai's 1997 single recorded on March 10th 1999. Formerly exclusive to this release, it has since appeared on the BBC Sessions compilation Government Commissions.

12. Happiness - Elliott Smith

Another preview track - this time for Smith's album Figure 8.

But that's not all: this one is also a CD rom and contains the videos to Stereophonics' Hurry Up And Wait and Slipknot's Spit It Out UNCENSORED!! Woooh! NEXT.....

  1. Eff-yr-eyes, the D. Holmes remix of Swastika Eyes can also be found on the Sonic Mook Experiment compilation. (thankfully, since I let a workmate/Stereophonics fan borrow my copy of the Select disc and it was never returned/thrown out by his mum)

    None of this matters at this point, obv.
