    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    I suspect the shrieking was more due to the amount of drinking that took place during this recording session :) Morrissey's take: What's the wailing sound that opens the album on "My Love I'd Do Anything for You"? Do you still turn to the BBC sound effects albums for audio samples? The...

    HMV: "hmv's 1921 Centenary Editions - second batch of exclusive vinyl revealed” - Bona Drag LTD 750 copies / transparent green vinyl (June 17, 2021)

    I think HMV Bona Drag (and the previous HMV Vauxhall.. offering) come under the heading of 'because they can'. Central never advertised the Vauxhall vinyl, but managed a post about its charting. This may be the same thing. The murky waters surrounding which albums can be produced & made like...

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Insatiable One"

    From my previous post about Brett's Afternoons With The Blinds Drawn as relevant: "To be honest, ‘My Insatiable One’ was a bit of an afterthought. It wasn’t until the record was released and the song started gathering attention in the press and cover versions by Morrissey that we belatedly...

    Far Out: "A track-by-track guide to The Smiths' 'The Queen is Dead' from Morrissey and Marr" (June 16, 2021)

    On 16th June 1986, The Smiths would release their near faultless third album, The Queen Is Dead, which, for Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce, would confirm themselves as being the most important voices of a generation.
