I hope this is accurate and it’s 1,000 worldwide. That’s quite a small number tbh and might make it quite collectible down the line.

The Facebook comments had me in stitches, relentless bashing, never seen Morrissey ripped so hard, and I’m assuming by followers & and one time fans. This nicely segues into the “Can Morrisseys music legacy survive his bad press” thread. Judging by the majority of these comments, it would appear not.

This must be better than porn for some people here. Dicks will be rubbed f***in' raw over these comments.

If anyone needs ‘a reminder’ to unfollow someone or remnants of someone then frankly they can’t care enough and are just waxing lyrical on social media

FWIW: my record store contact (who's normally spot on) confirms what you suggest. That this is not available to indies and is exclusive to Rhino & is limited to 1000. Probably worth a preorder.

If all the people who are apparently stopping buying Morrissey records were really buying his records in the first place, he would’ve recently enjoyed a string of platinum-selling albums.

In truth, these ‘boycotting’ music fans are indignant, low life, liars who’ve been gifted a platform by social media. They are the modern equivalents of ‘Disgusted’, from Tunbridge Wells.

THE BEST OF MORRISSEY

The Legendary Singer’s 2001 Hits Collection Makes Its Vinyl Debut As A Double-LP Set With Classics Like “Hairdresser On Fire” And “Everyday Is Like Sunday”

Available From Sire / Parlophone On August 30

Morrissey surpassed the commercial success of his former band the Smiths after the singer-lyricist launched a solo career in 1988. Over the next 10 years, “Moz” released six studio album and a string of hit singles before going on a brief recording hiatus. On November 6, 2001, THE BEST OF MORRISSEY, a collection that brought together his most memorable work as a solo artist up to that point, was released on CD in North America only.
Sire / Parlophone will revisit that classic compilation this year by releasing it, for the first time ever, on vinyl. THE BEST OF MORRISSEY will be available on August 30 as a double-LP set for $31.98. Rhino.com will also release a “clear” vinyl version, limited to 500 copies, on the same day.

Soon after the Smiths disbanded in 1987, Morrissey returned with his debut as a solo artist Viva Hate (1988). The album was certified gold in both the U.K. and the U.S. and topped the album charts in England. THE BEST OF MORRISSEY includes two key tracks from Viva Hate: “Everyday Is Like Sunday” and “Suedehead.”

The singer followed his debut with a series of non-album singles that were eventually collected on Bona Drag (1990) along with several B-sides. The collection was certified gold in the U.S. and reached the Top 10 in the U.K. THE BEST OF MORRISSEY has several tracks from the album, including “Interesting Drug,” “The Last Of The International Playboys,” and “Hairdresser On Fire,” the B-side of “Suedehead.”

This collection also spotlights two key albums from the solo-Morrissey canon with eight songs from Your Arsenal (1992) and Vauxhall And I (1994). Featured songs include “We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful” and “Glamorous Glue” from the GRAMMY®-nominated Your Arsenal; and “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get” and “Hold On To Your Friends” from the #1 U.K. album Vauxhall And I.

All the other studio albums the singer released between 1988 and 1997 are represented on THE BEST OF MORRISSEY with “Sing Your Life” from Kill Uncle (1991), “Do Your Best And Don’t Worry” from Southpaw Grammar (1995) and “Alma Matters” from Maladjusted (1997). Other tracks on the collection include the non-album single “Sunny” and the B-sides “Sister I’m A Poet” and “Lost.”
