Compiling all of the Morrissey Solo Loose Ends

After listening to Bona Drag, World of Morrissey, My Early Burglary Years and skipping over the album tracks, I decided to put the tracks that were unique to these three CDs onto one CD.

Unfortunately, they don't all fit on one CD, plus I have a number of other singles lying about that I would like to include as well.

Has anyone found a good solution to the "Morrissey spreads his output all over the place and often repeats songs on multiple releases"problem?

I don't do ipods or I would just create a big playlist of these songs. I prefer to make some CDs (2 or 3) but can't seem to find a logical way of organizing it.

I quite liked the bootleg "Talent Borrows, Genius Steals" as it compiles about 20 or so unique songs (along with The Draize Train -studio and Jack the Ripper studio). Perhaps you could adopt that CD as a starting point and work your way chronologically?

I've always kept my odds and ends seperated by time period (at least on my computer). Such as Viva Hate B-Sides and Other Tracks/Outtakes etc etc etc.

It's been pretty handy for me that way...

yes.

you could put all the singles in order on an mp3 disc. that is what i have done to listen in the auto but your player must be able to play that format. what's an ipod? just kidding.

I've found the mp3 CD players to skip a lot, so I stick with the CD only players. That would be a brilliant solution, BTW.

Thanks, I'll see if I can dig up that list.

I never got my hands on The Draize Train...:(

funny, never had the skipping problem. i've only just installed the cd/mp3 player a few months ago. of course the next time i am in the car, the player will probably skip all over.

Oh, you're in a car. I am talking about the handheld, portable players.

if you don't have it by the time i get home from work(Sunday night) i'll upload it for you and i'll get that list for you, too.

Thanks, I already found the list. There's at least a few others there that I don't have, but a quick search through this site yielded a download of the CD. Unfortunately the person uploaded it at only 160 Kbps. Am I alone in thinking that this is too low a bitrate for repeated listening? :(
