This Charming Man again and again

This 12″ EP is somewhat hard to find, it came out in 1992 as part of the represses done by Sire records and thus was only available in the USA. This EP contains all previous released studio recordings of the second Smiths single: This Charming Man, a grand total of 8 different version and a b-side track of the UK 12″ from back in 1983/84.

Same Titled

I really got into hunting down Smiths vinyl these last few years. My collection grew extensively, thanks also to their extended discography and localized pressings.

Still a better thing than spending money on dope or hunting animals imho.

I found two pressings of the same titled record, I didn’t have yet. First one is the 10″ version from the 1993.

This completes my search for the full series of 10″s. All of them came out in 1993, only The Queen Is Dead was repressed for RSD back in 2011.

Also I picked up a Greek pressing with the blue tint on the front of the sleeve and blue lines and text on the back of the sleeve.

Funny enough I picked up a Greek pressing earlier and I always assumed all of them had the blue vibe going on. I wasn’t to impressed when I got my first copy. but since I know had the chance to compare them back to back it was kind of cool too discover there are actually two pressings done in Greece. The front looks totally different and the back has some small differences.

Greek promo

I came across a copy of the Queen Is Dead on vinyl last week, upon closer inspection it happened to be the Greek version. Seeing the condition and asking price, I almost decided to bail on it. Out of curiosity I decided to inspect the vinyl anyway. To my big surprise it wasn’t the red/green labels but these white printed labels coming out of the sleeve.

I didn’t had a clue about the rarity of this version, but my gut feeling told me to buy it. After asking around it is somewhat of a promo version, that doesn’t show up that often. Last one sold on eBay was back in 2014. Nice score for a nice sunny day and I didn’t even went to the cemetery gates.

Another record, I couldn’t resist since it was cheap is this 10″ by Morrissey as a teaser for his latest full length. No special artwork or rare songs. But the best songs of his latest record on a 10″.

Demo’s and unreleased

Great double LP by the Smiths, containing nothing but great quality, demo’s, alternate takes and unreleased tracks.

What makes it even more cool, is the gorgeous marble blue vinyl.

Sing Your Life

Another early 90’s Moz single for the collection. Love the b-side on this, cover of the Jam’s That’s Entertainment. Somehow the colors of this sleeve is super hard to take a picture of. But the front and the back are the same creamy white color.

Another Morrissey record that showed up cheap is this Morrissey 12″ on a lush looking picture disc. 

I always end up seeing it sitting in record stores I visit, but I never want to pay the asking price. So when I played the waiting game for this one, it worked out nicely.

I really enjoy the b-sides of this single more than the a-side. Some great gems are to be found on this record.

Moz in Hamburg

I know the live set featured on this record, when I found an affordable copy on vinyl, this was a no brainer.

Great set list with obviously a lot of the earlier songs. Nice artwork too.

Mauer Park 2

From another seller that did ask normal prices around, I found two harder to find records. 

One is the France version of the legendary second LP by Venom which basically kickstarted Black Metal back in 1982.

I also found the Smiths – Stop Me… 12″ single with the distinctive red German sleeve. This one is on black vinyl, and which is harder to find than the colored editions.

The boy with the test press

I found this test press/promo of the Smiths on Discogs the other day for a very decent price. Nothing much to look at, but still hard to find and nice to have. It could use some cleaning tho, it has accumulated 30 years worth of dust.
