Well, what you must understand, is that all of what he released is not Machina II. The double LP is the only part of the album, which has: Glass’ Theme, Cash Car Star, Dross, Real Love… <snip>… Here’s To The Atom Bomb.
Corgan said the 3 EPS, which have the covers and different versions of songs were "the b-sides" of the album. They are not Machina II.
Some of your other information was inaccurate as well, I’m afraid. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] Don’t mean to pick but Corgan explicitly said Machina II will not have an official release. It will not be sold. It’s near impossible to do so since Virgin Records has the rights to it and they don’t want to take the time to do so.
I haven’t heard anything about the greatest hits album, and I’m on the Pumpkins BBS near 24-7. I’d like to see your source on that since it’s new info to me. If it will have two new songs, you can bet one will be Untitled, which was the song he released to radio 3 days before the band broke up. Other then that, I’m interested.
Nice to see another Pumpkin fan on the board.
