Be aware! Anarchy Music's Richard Hung Himself: The Very Best Of (2007) should be avoided if you're expecting the very best of, or even just the normal best of, or even old stuff: it is a collection of stuff from the 1990s onwards, and even bits from a Casey Royer solo LP, including re-recordings of old so it looks like you're buying old stuff. The 2007 single Richard Hung Himself is also from this LP.
