    Recieved this e-mail today from the SPFC, thought I might share it with all four of you other Pumpkins fans on the forum: [​IMG]
    quote: THE SMASHING PUMPKINS GREATEST HITS ROTTEN APPLES TO BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 20,
    2001
    SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION 2-CD PACKAGE TO BE AVAILABLE FOR SHORT TIME
    On November 20th, 2001, Virgin Records will release the long-awaited
    Smashing Pumpkins Greatest Hits, entitled Rotten Apples, in North America
    (release dates for other areas may vary.) To coincide with this event,
    Virgin will also issue a limited edition, two-CD package that will include
    the Rotten Apples disc as well as Judas O. Judas O is the follow-up to
    Pisces Iscariot, the 1994 b-sides release by the Pumpkins. The new
    compilation will feature b-sides and rarities culled from the band's
    sessions which produced Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and
    MACHINA. As an added bonus for true Pumpkins fans, the artwork for the
    Greatest Hits will contain never-before-seen photos of the band.
    In addition to the CD set, a special DVD will be released to coincide with
    the Greatest Hits. The DVD will include the Smashing Pumpkins' video
    collection from their albums and a documentary on the making of those
    videos.
    Following is a complete track listing for both CDs for North America:

    Initial reaction: No Cash Car Star?!?!
    After a couple minutes' thought: For a release that's aimed at the die hard fans of the Pumpkins, there are far too many songs included on Judas O'Reilly that have already been released. I'm a little disappointed, because I know Billy Corgan could fill a solid ten discs with truly never-before-heard tracks...
    It would've been nice if more of the Adore Demos had been released (My Mistake is good, but Do You Close Your Eyes is fabulous), because the copies that have circulated aren't exactly high quality, and... well... there are just so many more songs that could have been included. I liked this b-sides idea a lot more when rumor dictated that it would be a box set with hours and hours of material... Oh, well. Come November 20th I'll still be snatching up two or three copies.
