    I'm not sure I can help you because I couldn't decide on certain songs because I loved too many!

    So I did two CDs, one of the Roth era (a 19-song collection) and one of the Sammy era (15).

    Damn, it never ends.

    If I was doing this, I'd wait until I get the remasters (if you plan to buy them). I made a compilation CD not too long ago and the Diver Down stuff is much quieter than the rest. I'd wait til they get em sounding bigger.
