Not included in this survey are 'compilation' albums that are not selective Ö ie, ones that compile whole albums, or amass all 'A' and 'B' sides indiscriminately. It need hardly be said that it is not surprising that the early albums have been most plundered for compilations; the compilations started in 1969! Equally there are permission constraints that have made it evidently much easier to recycle material from the Regal Zonophone years. Yet it is still significant to see which songs, from the later material, have been used, and which have been (almost entirely) overlooked.
