I was traveling with a friend last week and was amazed to hear California Saga sandwiched on a compilation called Sail Away 70s beside such stalwarts as Everybody's Talking by Harry Nilsson and Sailing by Christopher Cross. Was this a case of a BB track just being used as compilation filler? Have you had a similar experience? Here is a link:

Seeing Cabinessence pop up on a psychedelic 60s compilation was a nice surprise:

Leo Blokhuis is a Dutch TV personality who has compiled several double CDs with (mostly) obscure songs that he likes. 'Time To Get Alone' is on one of them:

About a year or two ago I was watching one of those PBS 60's music specials, and they were offering a multi cd set for their pledge program.  The cd's offered much of the typical nostalgic hits, but included the BBs' "DARLIN'", which I was surprised to see on such a comp.  Very cool!

There was an EMI patriotic compilation CD back in the '90s called IT STANDS FOR US ALL that included "Fourth of July."  I think I still have a couple of copies of that.
