Personally not sure we need another one, we had the best of, since which Blur released 2 albums, Midlife and 21, that almost every song has already appeared on Midlife and the best of says it all for me.

Perhaps after a new blur album it would be worth making a new one. But yeah, for now Midlife and the Best of have it pretty covered. I'd want a compilation album that (similar to Midlife) didn't just include singles.

Also, welcome to the forum redsalmon :)

I think Midlife covered the diversity of Blur's career better than the Best Of did, by adding songs that were album tracks. It may have been a bit of an empty cash in considering no new music was released around the 2009 shows, but if I was to try and convince someone that Blur were more than just Parklife and Country House, that would be the album to do it. If I was adding songs from TMW to a new compilation, Ong Ong would be the last song if I could only choose one to represent the album, just my opinion. Actually just looking over Midlifes track listing, what a bloody good selection of Blur songs :)

I'd probably make my own when they're officially done, adding some TMW songs. Ghost Ship is a must.

would much rather;
B-Sides Gig Double LP
Live At The Budokan Double LP
BBC Sessions Box Set

or a career spanning Double LP of b-sides that never got a vinyl release

A SIDE: Fried / Down / Badgeman Brown / Pleasant Education (Unreleased) / Never Clever / Peach

B SIDE: When The Cows Come Home / Bone Bag / Beachcoma / Threadneedle Street / Theme From An Imaginary Film / Far Out ( Beagle 2 Mix)

C SIDE: Ultranol / No Monsters in Me / A Song / St Louis / All Your Life / A Spell For Money

D SIDE: Polished Stone / Bustin' + Dronin' / Cowboy Song / So You / Don't Be / Colours

Certainly there are better b-sides than those you've mentioned. I mean, you're not even including their best two, i.e. I Know and Tame.

yes there are better, but as i said the novelty of it would be that they would be on vinyl for the first time

just a best of the bsides would be something like this:

A: Fried, I Know, Explain, Inertia, Luminous, Popscene, Bone Bag
B: Mace, Es Schmecht, Young And Lovely, Anniversary Waltz, Threadneedle Street, One Born Every Minute, No Monsters In Me
C: Tame, The Man Who Left Himself, A Song, St Louis, All Your Life, Woodpigeon Song, Get Out Of Cities
D: Polished Stone, Swallows In The Heatwave, Cowboy Song, All We Want, So You, Don't Be, Colours

and i would kill to get that record!
