A lot of work in that one, Jeff. Some great oldies, many I do not recognize.

I thought 50 was too much, but some of you sound like you could have doubled that.

That too has a lot of work in it, Davis. I did not know some of those B sides, like Steely Dan and the Monkees.

cw is not referring to the All I Wanna Do on Sunflower. He is referring to the very different All I Want to Do which is on 20/20 and was also the B-side to I Can Hear Music.
