Because I don't know what Verlaine's official title for the song is. No 
tracklisting was given with the tape. Until it was official released I 
thought 16 Tulips was called 16 Tears.  ? has never been released and 
is a genuine outtake.

>and why is one track or the other clearly missing?

Ask Mark Wallis. This is what was on the tape I was given.

No tracks are rips from b-sides and it depends on how cosmetic you 
think different guitar parts, lyrics and song lengths are. Yes, some 
tracks were given an official release. I'm too tired/busy at the moment 
to do a strict a-b comparison.
