I'm thinking of buying the MOFO 2 CD set, I've been considering it for a while, how good is it really? will I be pleasantly surprised by the different tracks? any feedback from owners of the said set is very much appreciated!

I got the four disc set when it first came out... it's an occasional listen kind of thing for me, but there are some cool things on it...not sure what's on the two disc vs four, but I'm sure there's the better content, and less redundant things... but yeah as someone else said...check it somewhere before laying down the cash.

Thanks, I have been checking it out and am just waiting to find it for a decent price before I buy, it's not cheap in the UK

It's not that simple.
For a start, there's about 6 tracks on the 2CD that ARE NOT on the 4CD.

To be exact: There are 7 tracks unique to the double-cd release.

All from Disc 2:

02. Who Are The Brain Police? (mono single mix)
05. How Could I Be Such A Fool? (mono single mix)
11. Hungry Freaks, Daddy (Basic Tracks)
12. Help, I'm A Rock (1970 FZ Remix)
13. It Can't Happen Here (1970 FZ Remix)
15. Watts Riot Demo/Fillmore Sequence
16. Freak Out Zilofone

I hate it when they do that with releases, for the completist has to have everything so why not release a 5 disc set in the first place and be done with it.

That was my beef with McCartney's "Tripping the Live Fantastic". The single CD had a song not on the 2CD version, and the the vinyl had a song not on either CD.
Same with Zappa's "Strictly Commercial". Had to get the vinyl for 1 song! (I'm so weak....)

Speaking of Strictly Commercial: The US and Japan cd versions were different.

It's almost like a mental abuse of fandom, they know we'll cave in at some point just to get that extra 25 seconds of whatever that ain't available anywhere else, aarrgghh!!
