    The one that almost ended up being the last appendix...

    A rush and a push...

    "Passions Just Like Mine" (link below)
    > 'official releases'
    >> 'collectors appendix'
    >>> 'Morrissey'
    >>>> 'World Of Morrissey'


    Or take the shortcut

    For more info on this series, please read this.

    thanks,
    Stephane

    Information about the inner side and back of the front insert as well as the disc is needed.

    Well.. as I'm not at home, I'll describe mine and later I'll post the pic.

    The disc has Parlophone's black label as well as Vauxhall & I and all singles from this age. The inner sleeve contains a orange print with credits of the songs above. And the inner pic is the same of UK edition. Besides, the back is all the same. I promise I'll post pics quite soon.

    Fantastic work (as always) - many thanks, Stephane!

    But why the peril about it potentially being the last collectors' appendix? I really hope not...

    Finally, regarding the two variations of Have-a-go Merchant promo 7", could it be plausible that the "mispressed" version was produced to promote the single (Boxers) and the other copy produced to promote (two other tracks from) the album? It seems there are less copies of the intended version (understandably so, considering this was a special vinyl pressing), however, does anybody have an idea of how many copies were pressed in total (both editions)?

    p.s. I'm aware of the straw poll which was carried out here previously pertaining to each version

    I think that the Our Price instore CDs are lovely :)

    UK various artists Our Price instore cd [Our Price]
    The release of this album was also also promoted with the inclusion of "Boxers", "You're The One For Me, Fatty", "Certain People I Know", "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys", "Have-A-Go Merchant" and "My Love Life" on an instore cd meant to be played in shops of the Our Price chain. The cd contains one track only, lasting over an hour and meant to sound like a radio broadcast: "Hello, I'm Mark Goddier, here are this week's new releases..." The disc is white with black text and logos. The Our Price logo is at the top, "New Releases" at the bottom, a Compact Disc logo on the left above Disctronics logo and slogan, and date (30 January 1995) and promo warning on the right. The disc comes in a white card sleeve with the Our Price logo at the top, "New Releases" in the middle and Disctronics logo, slogan and phone number at the bottom. Information about the back of the sleeve is needed.​

    In terms of the reverse of the sleeve - the photo I uploaded last week of the two CDs side by side had the front of one and the reverse of the other on show - the only difference being the phone number - not sure which is front or reverse. The sleeves for the Boxers CD and the World of... are identical.

    But then why would they not have properly labeled the contents?

    Are you talking about the cd. If it's I put it in an attachement. I tried to upload the back cover but it was not allowed.

    Yes the cd.

    Where? An attachment to what?

    That's alright, I didn't ask for that part, I have it.

    thanks,

    Never mind Raphael, Mikael sent the image of the disc to me. For some reason I can't see it in your post but he can.

    thanks,
