In general terms I agree with Tom's above comments.
We have WWW on one CD at the request of some of our fans and Caldonia is
another which is frequently asked for because we usually play it as a encore
and capitalise on all the impulse buyer sales. I don't hate any tunes. I
just like some a lot better than others.
