Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds will release triple CD album spanning the full 21 years of their career - on March 21st, 2005. This comprehensive three CD set, entitled «B-Sides & Rarities», presents a retrospective collection of material by the band, some of which has been deleted, featured on a disparate number of soundtrack albums or has never been officially released before. The 56 track compilation includes for instance «The Moon Is In The Gutter» that appeared on the flipside of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds' first 7" inch vinyl release, a cover of Elvis Presley's «In The Ghetto». Also to be found on there are «Under This Moon» (a track that was previously only available on the B-Side of «Breathless» / «There She Goes My Beautiful World»). «Basically, this is material that was B-sides, outtakes or extra recordings,» states Mick Harvey, a founding member of The Bad Seeds. «We tried to include everything that came under that criteria. The other criteria was that it was a Bad Seeds recording not a Nick Cave recording. There isn't anything by Nick working with other people or by himself, it's just Nick with members of The Bad Seeds.» The only real diversion from the theme is «God's Hotel» and «O'Malley's Bar», which are radio sessions. The band decided to leave the B-side from the «Loverman» CD single because the band considers this to be an editing exercise rather than a song. Also «Where The Action Is» was ommitted because it was too long and sprawling.
