Perfect example of Crap you can find at a Library.

Index on Censorship: Smashed Hits
This really isn't the CD Cover. There really isn't one, but this picture seemed kind of appropriate.
As far as I can tell, this CD really wasn't released in the way you think CDs are released. It was included in a magazine called, "Index on Censorship" Volume 27 No 6 November/December 1998. Issue 185, titled "Smashed Hits" to be exact. I'm guessing the Library yanked out the CD, slapped it in a Jewel Case, and put it with the other CDs to check out. Nifty huh? A Library is probably one of the few places you're ever going to find this one. I've seen a few other CDs that I think came from magazines.
The theme of this Compilation is that every song or artist on the CD was supposed to have been censored in some way. That's all I remember from the liner notes. I think it was just a photocopied page from the Magazine it came from. There's some really nice stuff on this one. The song by Flannel is amusing, it makes fun of the band Oasis. I figure Oasis didn't think it was very funny.

I'm sorry cheesemensch.
I don't really have any policy of re-ups but I tend toward not doing it. It takes what little time I do have to do it the first time.

But don't let that scare you away.
Come back anytinme.
