Good comps without the bleedin' obvious

Spinning the Bobby Darin set in Capitol's Ultra-Lounge series, and no sign of "Mack the Knife". Now, nothing wrong with that song, but I don't need it on every CD - so, thank you, Capitol!

He didn't record that for Capitol - that's why.

I always thought that "Gloria" (Shadows Of Knight version) was a startling omission from the first Nuggets box.

Well, that explains it. No noble motive, then.
