Comments:Ok. Here's my selection. I would have preffered a 4 CD collection (similar to The Who's 30 years of maximum R&B) with the face of each member on each CD, accompained by a big booklet plenty of photographs. But being that it had to be 3 CDs, I decided it could be 1 CD of rockers, 1 CD of ballads, and the remaining one of live performances, rehearsal sessions, rarities and solo demos. They could be enhanced CDs that include the lyrics and all kind of stuff enhanced CDs use to include. Booklet cover should have picture of Ron, Pete, Joey, Mike, Tom and Bob (Jackson) (similar to Let it Be cover) NOTE 1: I don't have the CD (nor LP) "Ass" so I only knew some of it's songs from the "Day after day" and the tribute CD. NOTE 2: It was hard to chose running order so I did it alphabetically. :
