A general discussion point, but could well go in collector's corner too - looks like there's a quantity of items to collect alongside the box set.
Several IG posts would imply the items will be given away with the set - let's hope so.
Regards,
FWD.

Doesn't seem any different to the version we all know and love. Still has the slight tape hiss at the beginning. Quite perfect as it is, though.

Not sure if anyone else has noticed this but partially visible on the box set product overview on Amazon is the cover of the Live in Boston disc which features this photo of Jack Kerouac listening to the radio.

Nice. Now why can't Morrissey follow the same aesthetic with his own solo records?

Sadly, this has just appeared with no fanfare or (as yet) link on the Official Smiths site.
4 wonderful minutes!
Probably would have been a better idea to release this Monday instead of Take 1. It is presented as part of the box set pre-release promotion - so may appear on the 'memories' site yet.
Available on Deezer & iTunes too
(thanks to GMS, Anon & a friend for the info).

FWD.

From Autobiography:
"Of course, I have always loved the Aragon Ballroom, with its gangster slop of menaced glop. When I first played here many lifetimes ago, I sneaked a peek at the queue – confrontationally all over the street, disrupting traffic, shouting back, unctuous and effusive, and there stood an army of male blond quiffs, tattooed arms and Hatful of Hollow t-shirts. Nothing, now, could hurt...

Almost worthy of Terrace Stomp... ;)

Posted on the OffMoz FB page. The 'art print' offered by HMV with Green vinyl.

Same kid í think, so probably another Tony Molina shot.

So now all í have to do is print off a dozen or so of these and replace the official art with alternate.

Stereo...For the man who has nothing...
