    Just thought some of you might be interested in reading a thread about The Smiths from an obsessive sound-quality bunch (myself included sometimes) regarding different CD pressings. It's a lot to go through, but I've been going back to Stepanie's site quite a bit lately (THANKS STEPHANIE!) and well....check it out if you want.

    Sorry...Stephane....my bad. Regardless, I'm very thankful for your site and have been referring to it lately. I have some deadwax information that is slightly different than what you have listed for a couple 12" singles, and was wondering if those stamper numbers like RTT 146 A1 are just copies you have or have been reported to you?

    Also, do you know why some might have the A1 vs. the 1AU-1-2-1 (just an example). Do you think it was different pressing plants or different masters used for those pressings or why the differences?

    Thanks, and sorry about the name. Just don't call me Randi to get get even.

    Don't worry about the name, you're not the first one. Every other week I get some American hitting on me thinking I'm a woman.

    If you have any different matrix numbers, please submit them.

    As for you question regarding the A1 vs 1AU-1-2-1 numbers, it's a question of pressing plant I believe. They each have their system.
