Death of an Unpopular Poet

Post by jbfins »

Does anyone know why this was left out of the song selection for BBB&B? I think it is universally agreed this is one of his best songs. Who the heck thought it should not be included with the box set?

"Death of an Unpopular Poet" is just one of several curious omissions from the boxed set, a couple of others are:

Banana Republics
God's Own Drunk
