I chipped away a few wants in recent weeks. But due to the holidays I didn’t got around picking up the records and posting about them.
First a batch of Smiths singles and EPs. The Peel Sessions 12″ EP is reasonable hard to find, due to the majority of the songs being made available on the Hatful of Hollow LP and other records.
Back in 1987, the 1984 single William, It Was Really Nothing was reissued with a totally different sleeve. Not sure why and how come it is so hard to find a copy nowadays. Probably didn’t press too much of them.
Probably told the story of the Sandie Shaw 7″ a few times before. But this single is basically The Smiths with 60’s pop singer Sandie Shaw covering The Smiths songs. I got this one for free.
The final single is this Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore released in Canada. The 7″ version was only issued with a company sleeve and gets often mistakes for the UK version which is commonly available and has an identical layout of the labels. This Canadian pressing is actually pretty rare. I got this one cheap since it was poorly advertised and it is missing the company sleeve. Luckily I have a spare of the company sleeve.
