This site has been kicking around for a couple of years now...
http://www.morrisseydirect.com/
Does anyone know what it was about?
Can't see why anybody would register the name and put up the info for it to come to zero?

If you register this site, they used to send newsletters.
I got some emails from them earlier, the last one was informing sale of last tour marchandise.

However, Morrissey no longer signed to Polydor / Decca, no point registering it.

I just about remember signing up - thanks for the reminders.
Very annoying though.
The 'made to order' bit did sound interesting! :confused:
cheers,

Well I feel like a dumdum. :)
 
If you look at the special edition of the greatest hits, a little purple card came with it saying "a very special morrissey release coming soon" check this website for more details. Maybe something was meant to come out that never did
 
According to "whois"-sources - those are the details

The "back-catalogue cash-cow" bit brings up bad memories of yet more repackaged crap.
The EMI 3 album box set being prime evidence- 3 non-deleted albums too!!
Which I pointed out almost ten years ago on here (Time flys!!)

(Third comment).
I'd give an old one a good home before propping up EMI's shares!
But getting back to the mystery site.
Given the theme is similar to the Greatest Hits package - It would be nice to speculate:
I was thinking a bespoke 'choose your own' best of - So they are all unique - which would have been nice.
Would certainly answer the 'made to order' bit of the site.
I guess one will never know now!

What happened to the itsmorrisseysworld item

that was mentioned with the mailing list? I'm sure this is posted somewhere already. Seems curious that it just dropped.
