      Does anyone else notice what appears to be tape on the second picture. Which is the first picture of the vinyl label. I see what could be tape at 2 o'clock. When I saw it the first time it did look strange but then when I saw it again it looks like tape. This is starting to smell bad. WEA has not put markings on the back of releases since the first Best of...

      I've just chcked out Warner UK and WMG web sites and there's no information about this release.
      I'm thinking it's a pretty well done bootleg.

      Quite unusual to release a 12" single at 45rpm.
      Certainly not unheard of, but not something you see everyday.

      If I'm not mistaken, my "Satellite of live" 12'' is 45 RPM.

      Looks like a transparent inner sleeve to me

      Morrissey put together the sleeves for the 'Sound of the Smiths' compilation, post-court case - not only was Joyce still in the credits, but he chose photographs of his face to put on the covers, so I don't think he's THAT petty.

      Two quick notes:
      1)What is the point of this release? 'The Boy With the Thorn' 7" makes sense, as it's got unreleased material on it, but - unless it's to tie in with some anniversary - I am struggling to see the commercial sense in this.

      2)As Johnny Marr gets sole songwriting credit for two of the four songs, he'll presumably end up earning twice as much as Morrissey for this release.

      3)Why does Morrissey get 50% of the royalties for the instrumental 'Oscillate Wildly' anyway. Just for the title?

      Ooops, I stand corrected. :o

      Self proclaimed Off Topic.

      That is one beautiful woman. I loved that pic instantly when he started using it as a back drop. If I remember correctly, I saw him use it a couple years ago in Seattle, maybe during Alma Matters (yes, I know he used it a lot).

      He could have been singing 'Rocky Mountain High'. Didn't care. Just stared at the back drop.

      I digress...

      Ok..I haven't seen the sleeve of that compilation but I could certainly believe that petty, rather than action, is his middle name

      1) I think everyone is hoping that it is part of promoting re-issues. A bit disappointing that there is no new material on this 12". Morrissey wanted TQID to come out as a single for the Queen's diamond jubilee, five years ago, but didn't get his wish.

      2) No, but he'll presumably get 75% of the songwriting royalties.

      3) A lot of songwriting partnerships work on the understanding that both songwriters get a credit for everything the partnership produces. e.g. Lennon and McCartney are always co-credited even thought they often wrote separately. Morrissey and Marr must have worked in this way at the time Oscillate Wildly was written, but not later on.

      No he didn't. He was supposed to, but dropped out of the project. He came up with the title "The Sound of the Smiths", but the design was done by something called Mental Block Design.

      Her name is Margherita Caruso, and I hope you haven't been having naughty thoughts, as according to her IMDb page she would have only been 13 or 14 years old when this film was made.

      Obviously, there was a designer involved to do the actual legwork - I'm just saying Moz chose the photos (I don't think it's by chance that the cover on the main 2-CD release has Moz, Andy and Johnny with beaming smiles, but Joyce looking glum https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sound_of_The_Smiths#/media/File:SmithsDeluxe.jpg )

      Passions Just Like Mine also states that "This album's artwork was supervised by Morrissey." http://passionsjustlikemine.com/disc/soundofthesmiths.htm

      Didn't Moz express his appreciation about John Denver once?
      Not sure if it was about that song Rocky Mountain High.
      Maybe he considered to cover it life once.
      But I doubt it cause of the high pitched yodel.
      A pity cause I really love it when he does it! :brows:
      Yodeling, I mean. :p

      No, he was supposed to but he didn't. PJLM is great in many respects, but it isn't infallible on fact.

      I reckon sometimes I hear "Annies Song" when there is a Morrissey family tofu Bar-B-Que down on the beach.

      Uncle Steve sure loves Italian women. I always pictured him married to a hot Italian super model, but I guess Aunt Nancy stole his heart years ago.
