"Les indispensables" is a collection edited by Sony Music. But it's true
that these "best of" present songs not well-known, even for french artits!
 And the only hits of Oils in France have been songs from Diesel and dust
and Blue sky mine. Maybe that explains the choice...


> It's the strangest Best Of I've ever seen. What record company releases a
> best of (which is almost invariably a cash-in) without the band's biggest
> worldwide hit.  And much as I like the songs, Bells and Horns, Jimmy
> Sharman's and Safety Chain Blues on a best of - something very strange
> about this album.
> Either way, I've just ordered it.
> While looking for more info about this release I decided to browse
> Amazon.co.uk and I found a DVD called "Midnight Oil - Ultimate Clip
> Collection"
> It's only 8.99UKP so I'm ordering it as well - the track listing is
> unimpressive (8 songs listed below) but I've bought it any to give the
> band a bit of support here in the UK (probably a useless effort, I know.)
> Interestingly it seems that 20,000 Watt RSL has been released in the UK on
> DVD - it's available from Amazon.co.uk for 12.99UKP.
