Not so fond of "Rattlesnake Shake" and the two "Madges", the live performances are better, but they DO belong to the album. My album does not include "Oh Well".
I have a copy of that original UK vinyl too, Wouter. It's much different album in its original form than any of the vinyl or CD versions that have come since. I hadn't listened to that original version of the album in some time before a couple of years ago and it's stunning how differently you hear the music with the original track list and track order. Presumably, this is how the band wanted the album to be heard.

FWIW, can't say that I enjoy "When You Say" at all - I'd say that might well be among the band's all-time weakest tracks, almost unlistenable to my ears. Also FWIW, I prefer Christine's version, at least I can sit through listening to that one Needless to say, YMMV.
