    Personally, rather than issuing the singles from the first half of his career on vinyl as well as collecting 00's b-sides on 'Swords', I would prefer to see something similar to the two CD singles boxsets, encompassing his releases from '95-Present. The fact that he's been on several labels since then would probably prevent such a release, though.

    This is unfortunate. All the trouble some people have gone through to collect the singles, only to have them reprinted and boxed all nice.

    At least they'll have a different catalog number than the orignals?

    It isn't unfortunate.

    It's all up to individual to decide whether buy them or not.

    Morrissey is a pop singer, his former record company is marketing his popularity.

    Except that they won't be boxed all nice. Just like none of the box sets were.

    if they're boxed like the Morrissey CD boxsets, i'll be happy

    i wouldn't even open them, as i don't own a record player, depending how much they are/how much i have in Oct-Nov, i might buy them..

    All completists will feel compelled to buy them.
    We have no choice, we always have and we always will!

    I don't buy vinyl anymore so I'll pass on this.

    I would have loved it if EMI would re-master all of his albums with extra tracks instead but of course this is bound to happen after these reissues no doubt, LOL.

    Morrissey is losing out on this set and doesn't want people to buy it :(

    From www.true-to-you.net
    Information regarding boxed sets of Morrissey singles, reissued Smiths CDs and LPs
    8 August 2009

    Morrissey would like it to be known that he has not been consulted by EMI/HMV/Parlophone with regards to two forthcoming boxed sets of Morrissey singles. Morrissey does not approve such releases and would ask people not to bother buying them. Morrissey receives no royalty payments from EMI for any back catalogue, and has not received a royalty from EMI since 1992. Morrissey also does not approve of, and was not consulted on, the Rhino box of Smiths CDs, or the Warner releases of Smiths LPs on 180 gramme vinyl. Morrissey last received a royalty payment from Warners ten years ago, and, once again, he would ask people not to bother buying the reissued LPs or CDs.

    everyone bought the cd versions, which i presume were released after 1992...

    so doubt it'll stop anyone buying these, tbf.

    I don't understand how he could get himself into a situation that he would not recieve a royalty from his own work? :confused:

    Is the record industry really that complicated?

    Really Moz! :p
    He's so demanding sometimes :D
    If he doesn't want us buying them then he shouldn't have made such great work in those years :lbf:
