Just to be annoying technically all these songs are now on the albums the way they have been repackaged on CD. I'm not sure though which should have been included as an album track that would require more thinking power than I am capable of right now.

Straighten out was not a b'side it was a double A side with something better change and in my opinion the stronger song

Achilles Heel was a gem ditto Since you went away and Norman Normal. I also really liked the demo version of The Beast.

I agree. My favourite B sides from this era are Since You Went Away, Achilles Heel and In One Door.

Top secret could have made it on The Gospel According To The Meninblack Hugh's vocals are excellent on this one. And Fools Rush Out in place of Longships on The Raven
