aha !
There are quite a lot of killer bsides. For exemple the bsides for the Pavement's terror twilight singles are way better than the actual LP, in my opinion. Roll with the wind, harness your hopes, the purpose and the handgrenade...such great tunes.

THat's a good example... the Fall collection of B sides is great too.

I love a good b side. When I was a youth and these things still existed I used to trail round record fairs in the south of England looking for b side bootlegs from all my favourite bands. Happy memories!

I guess even the idea of a "b side" is a bit crazy today, like when a CD "single" has a "b side"... it's only the physical fact that a piece of flat vinyl happens to have two playable sides that creates the fact of a b-side. And I'm not a big fan of 45s, singles, it's just as much searching through records to find something you want, but even if you find something you're only finding 2 songs! If I'm going to spend time looking through albums for something to buy I'd much rather be looking through full albums, because then if you find something you're at least finding a whole album's worth of songs! The searching takes just as much time either way.
Plus, listening to singles is basically annoying... you can't just put it on and sit back and listen, by the time you sit down it's time to stand up and flip the side!
I can see how the 45 single format is very useful a DJ though... if you're bringing songs to spin for a DJ event it's a lot easier to bring a box of the exact songs/singles you want to play, instead of having to carry whole big heavy records around, just to play one song from each one.

Ohh mastered versions of the demos do sound appealing! I have all the message board CDs on my phone but having to adjust the volume for each song gets quite annoying. The quality is very different from "real" recordings anyway but I think it'd be a lot easier to listen to already if the volume was evened out!
