Surprised that Open Arms didnít make it. Nor the olympics coverage theme from 2012.

The Olympic theme may be missing because of an issue with the rights. Was it released on Elbow's normal label or on the BBC label?

It must be a legal thing as otherwise it should certainly be on the track listing.

I hope this does well for them as they have released so many good tracks over the years.

This must be one of the few Greatest Hits collections that leaves off the band's highest charting hits. Asleep In The Back, Fallen Angel & Lost Myself, all top 20 hits, didn't make the cut, on either the standard or deluxe edition! I wonder if there's rights issues around these tracks as well (as I recall, their first 3 albums were released on a different label, therefore it's probably more expensive to licence them for the GH, hence why they've might have stuck to minimal tracks from these releases).

I didnít even spot the omission of Asleep In The Back - one of my absolute faves of theirs.

There is a reasonable amount of variation, it's only The Seldom Seen Kid which has a lot of representation.

02 Cast of Thousands
02 Asleep in the Back
04 Leaders of the Free World
08 The Seldom Seen Kid
04 Build a Rocket Boys!
04 The Take Off and Landing of Everything
03 Little Fictions

They have left singles off from all albums (only 2 of their 4 from Little Fictions, 3/5 from The Take Off... and just 1/3 from Build a Rocket Boys) but then it is a Best Of, rather than a Greatest Hits, which I think makes sense when you look at some of the stuff that weren't chosen as singles. Really interesting choices overall.

For me Asleep In The Back and Cast Of Thousands is when they were TRULY great, it's a shame they're not really represented here. sad.gif
