After an excruciatingly-long pre-order period, I finally got my Cake CD in the mail! This collection is exactly what the title says, combining a bunch of songs off of various compilations, singles, and promo CD’s. I had a bunch of these, but not all of them. Some that I didn’t have are their cover of War Pigs (which shows up again as a hidden live track at the end of the CD), and a weird original song called Thrills. The three songs from the Pressure Chief Extra Value disc are here (Ruby, Strangers In The Night, and Conroy (albeit a remixed version)), Mahna Mahna, Multiply The Heartaches, an awesome take on Barry White’s Never Gonna Give You Up, and Excuse Me (I Think I’ve Got A Heartache). There’s also live versions of Short Skirt Long Jacket, and It’s Coming Down. And to top it all off’ a scratch and sniff album cover’!’! How cool is that’ In any event, definitely worth it if you’re a Cake fan! The only thing I wish would have been included would be A) the vocal version of Arco Arena, and B) Half As Much. Can’t have everything!
