Notes:
1. While this isn't every single television performance I could get my hands on, I thought this was a decent mix of songs and representative of how the band has evolved over the years.
2. Don't expect a bunch of crazy alts, remember these were performed on tv and had small time slots to fill.
3. PLEASE leave feedback. This is version 1 of this compilation and I would love to make improvements and take suggestions.

Some comments for you:

1) You should number the files, so that they easily show up in the correct order when the folder is dropped into iTunes or another media player. Start with (01, 02, etc...) so that track 10 doesn't follow track 1.

2) I think in a compilation of this length, it's worth avoiding repeats unless they're really different versions of the songs. I just don't need to hear essentially the same arrangement of Mr. Jones twice in an hour. These can be segregated off as bonus tracks, or just not included.

3) If I were picking from the repeated tracks here...
A Long December - I'd probably take the Letterman track as more historic.
You Can't Count on Me - I preferred the GMA performance.
Mr. Jones - Of these three, I think it has to be SNL, although the audio hiccups towards the end are glaring. An acoustic performance would be a good addition.
Round Here - SNL for sure, although the longer versions (like Front & Center) are different enough to justify being there.
Accidentally in Love - the arrangements are roughly different enough to work; I prefer that slightly stripped down Nickelodeon version.

4) You might want to do some work on normalizing the volume between tracks - some are quite a bit louder than others.

5) Some of the host banter is interesting - some would probably improve the flow if you cut it, though.

6) Small typo - Daylight Fading is from the Tonight Show, not Late Night.
