The very very very best of

This must be the sixth best of record by Morrissey. All of them are great but non of them are complete or extensive enough. This is probably to do with the large amount of record labels Morrissey worked with, making all rights are spread all over the place. Until the next best of record appears this one by England biggest troublemaker will keep me satisfied.

The Smiths on Monday

I also found two Smiths LPs. Let’s start with the first American pressing of Meat Is Murder, this one has a promo stamp on the front cover.

I also found a Dutch pressing of Hatful Of Hollow with the nice Megadisc circular labels.

The Smiths on a Sunday

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.

droga interessante

Definitely not the best looking copy, but since this Portugese pressing is super hard to find and I found it in Portugal, I had to take it home. Luckily the price was very reasonable.

This Charming Man

Love this single and it is nice to find the German variant of it. Quite a few alterations compared to the UK pressing at the time.

Have-a-go merchant

The last missing 7″ from my Mozzer collection (until the new single drops). Tough one to find, since it only was released as a promo single.

Earl’s court

Great live record by the Mozzer. This came out on vinyl back in the early 00″s and ever since, it is hard to get hold of it.

A great set with new songs, older songs and the occasional Smiths cover song. Nice thick gatefold with very good looking inserts.u

Shoplifters unite

My collection of Smiths test pressings/promo’s have been growing quite slowly. This is probably due to I already picked all low hanging fruit and from now on it will get increasingly more difficult.

Despite, there is not much too look at besides this nice looking company sleeve. I am stoked to add this maxi single to my collection. The a-side is the classic Shoplifters of the World and the b-side has two solid tunes too.

Stop me but now on white vinyl

I have to admit, I am somewhat obsessed with this Manchester band. Visiting Manchester last February only fueled that fire.

I probably listen to them on a nearly daily basis. One of the songs that really intrigued me is Stop Me… This is one of the few singles that wasn’t released in the UK, but it did see a small release in The Netherlands and North America. The first being slightly more difficult to find. It did was released in higher quantities in Germany on several colors of vinyl, which makes this single a real collectors thing.

Girlfriend in a coma

Nice single I found on our local Craigslist. The single’s cover features playwright Shelagh Delaney. The photo was tinted grayish purple for 7″ versions in all countries, except in Australia where it was tinted green as for the 12″ versions. However this isn’t the Australian pressing, but a regular UK one, I could be that some have discolored into green, this might be one of these. But there definitely is genuine ones out there too.

Further more, I also have a 12″ with grayish purple sleeve. Love this small mistakes.

This was the second time Delaney appeared on a Smiths cover; she also appeared on the cover of Louder Than Bombs album.
