It would appear that the Mothermania versions of "Mother People" and
"The Idiot Bastard Son" are not included.

Also, this does not totally render the WOIIFTM/LG two-fer obsolete
because the stereo version of "Oh No" is not included either.  That
is, unless, it is included on "How Did That Get In Here?".
