I am having increasing difficulty completing my Smiths 7" vinyl collection. I am short of 'Hand in Glove' and the lilac sleeve version of 'William...' and also the 1992 releases of This Charming Man and 'There Is A Light...'.
It is possible to get ahold of these if you're prepared to stump up £20+ but I would prefer to get a bargain!
The question that this raises, on which I would like some feedback is how many copies of these singles are out there on 7" vinyl. Would anyone have any idea of the numbers issued of something like HAnd in Glove' - it didn't chart in the UK top 40 back in 1983 so I assume there was not a very big run. Maybe 5,000? If anyone has any numbers let me know.
Also, some of Morrissey's solo singles are hard to track down for a reasonable price. The Maladjusted singles on 7" tend to sell for upwards of £20! Were these limited editions? They are very hard to get ahold of.
