The section on completeness states that only ten recordings are missing. A complete collection would also bundle authorized remixes, live recordings, etc. These aren't addressed here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:16, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
John Ritchie (aka Sid Vicious) only "plays" on 1 track out of 64. Should this be pointed out? I mean, many believe Ritchie actually was the only bass player of the Pistols. On the recent Combine Harvester tour members of the audience were heard asking "Who's the guy on bass?", for instance. Matlock played on and wrote most of the Pistols material anyhow. For example, Pretty Vacant is all his, except for one (1) line of text by Lydon. God knows how much he really wrote. History seems to suggest Ritchie wrote nothing, not even "his" song "Belsen Was a Gas". Et cetera. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:19, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
- That's not true. Sid plays on "Bodies", the last track recorded for "Never mind the bollocks", he also played on a studio recording on "Submission"; it's not certain if the outtake on this box is that recording, but to these ears, it certainly sounds that way.

I don't want to sound rude (pun intended), but what "your ears" or indeed "my ears" tell us is of no consequence. Only references and sources are. According to everyone involved in the recording of NMTB John Ritchie did not play a single note on the album. You might want to buy the "Never Mind the Bollocks" part of the "Classic Albums" series. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:47, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
- It might not mean anything regarding Matlock's input and all, but it is certainly of service to note the Sex Pistols managed to churn out a mighty total of two (2!) new songs between Matlock's departure and the rather public implosion of the band. Make of that what you will. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:29, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
The article says that there are two outtakes not in the Box, of wich one can be found on the Spunk/This is crap bonus disc from never mind the Bollocks. The other outtake has not been released. Is there any information about what the second outtake is??? Dhcmeyle (talk) 16:05, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
- It is an alternate take of "Bodies". The difference is hardly notable, restricted to a slightly different bass guitar take. It's hard to notice at first listen, but it's there. The studio charts do not reveal anything, but it might be the fabled, almost mythical Sid Vicious/John Ritchie bass guitar take. The released version has Steve Jones playing bass, of course. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:43, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Ok, here goes, in case someone likes to know. The "Lydon-era Sex Pistols Studio Recordings" not included on the Sex Pistols Box Set are "Lazy Sod", "Satellite", "I Wanna Be Me" and "Anarchy in the U.K.", all from Denmark St. July 13th to July 30th, 1976, plus "Problems", "Pretty Vacant", "Liar" and "EMI" from the 17-24 January 1977 Gooseberry Studios session, and lastly "Bodies (Alternate Take)" and "Submission Demo #2" from the NMTB sessions at Wessex Studios starting February 1977. That's it. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:33, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
