    Yes, but none of the ones I'm missing contain tracks that can't be found elsewhere. Any rare b-sides are found on the Singles boxsets, apart from "You Must Please Remember" - which is found on the "Dagenham Dave" single (which I own). I'm more concerned about having a collection that contains every NECESSARY release, in order to have every officially-released a-side and b-side. I'm not concerned about live songs or edits.

    The only reason I have all the Smiths "best ofs" is because there are only a couple, and given that the entire Smiths discography is fairly scarce, I bought them all.

    that's about it from my 7" Moz box, except the usual non UK pressings but they are in the same sleeves, so pointless to scan an post. I s'pose I could have bored you with the back of the U.S. Irish blood single being that it's an e.p. rather than just the normal single (which comes in either black or opaque vinyl) but I won't. Oh & I've got some cover versions but they just aint Moz!

    love

    Grim
    P.s. should I open my Smiths 7" box?

    Does this count??
    I have never photographed my collection but it is something I have been thinking about doing lately. I have also been thinking about insuring my collection. Beau/Jeff, anyone... have you ever looked into this? Obviously the idea of a fire destroying your collection would be a nightmare, the thought of replacing an entire collection of rarities, and then cost of it is a scary one.

    Russ, that's certainly the biggest piece of Moz memoribilia I've seen. I knew you had it. What's the back story on it, exactly?

    I have my watch collection insured against theft, damage and loss. It costs me 1% yearly.

    I did look into insuring my collection. They just wanted anything valued over $200 specifically listed in the rider. This was many years ago. I haven't talked to my current insurance agent about insuring my record/cd collection, though.

    Here are some pics I have of some of my posters. All the posters are original mint, unfolded Rough Trade promos.

    This is excellent, I'm seeing so many great items - I was planning to sort out my collection over the break but may end up joining in with the photos now.

    As for the posters beau (severe envy) they look great, this image may help convince my b/f to "allow" more pictures up in our house - although I've been doing quite well with b/w photos.

    been sorting thru a photobucket & found these...

    I'm not really an autograph hunter & would prefer to have something not autographed, unless I was the one that obtained it of course then I'd know it was genuine. But on this occasion I couldn't pass it by, I bought it years ago for £5, it's a Kirsty MacColl 12" test pressing, the B-side being 'You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby'.

    You guys consider "The Very Best Of The Smiths" to be an actual Smiths release? Both Morrissey and Johnny Marr were very clear that they 100% opposed that release, did not approve of the remixing, and think the cover art is hideous.

    Maybe people still want it as a trivia item, but it is not a Smiths release any more than a mix of Smiths songs I tweak with and burn onto a CD with a cover I chose would be a "Smiths release."

    Where do you get all your posters? I am really considering following in your style if I can get my greedy hands upon copies of those posters. I hardly have anywhere near the extensive collections posted on here but I do have a few decent things plus my bootlegs that have been downlaoded of here look pretty good because I have a sexy printer which will burn high quality prints onto the disc face itself aswell as maximum quality covers. Will post a picture of my collection and memorablilia soon e.g. Cd's, casettes, shirts, dvds and an old Morrissey calender.

    Here is my collection of official release CDs & DVDs. The cover art on some bootlegs is so appalling that I decided to stick to the official stuff for this pic.

    I have also posted a pic of my ticket collection, the centrepiece is a little montage I put together following the April / May dates (the tickets in the montage are Salford Lowry, Llandudno, Manchester Apollo, Manchester Opera House, Manchester Bridgewater Hall & Liverpool Philharmonic). The tickets surrounding the montage are: Liverpool Royal Court (1985), Liverpool Empire (1991), MEN Arena (2004), Blackpool Empress Ballroom (2004), Liverpool Royal Court (2004), Preston Guildhall (2004), Birmingham NIA Arena (2004), Birmingham NIA Arena (2006), Manchester GMEX (Friday), Manchester GMEX (Saturday).
