      Probably right as far as a proper remaster goes. Who knows? But having a master with this year's date on it is useful from a marketing point of view. You can just have someone make some minor changes to the 2011 versions and call it a new master if you want, so that may well be what we will get.

      When it comes to the Smiths, you can't necessarily trust anything anyone says.

      Funny and true :)
      When you start to think about that, you can't necessarily trust anyone anymore. Period. :(

      Agreed ... and the idea that Morrissey is completely truthful is just silly.

      and is your proof that M isn't 'completely truthful' just as 'silly' ?

      Well that proof is silly as it is nonexistent.

      Well I would say based on the sonics of the Queen 12" and the recent Record Store Day 7" this IS a new remaster. In particular, the Queen is Dead is stunningly good.

      And there goes KS with the predictable response.

      Well, predictable or not, it has been registered, it will be archived, and it can't be denied. ;)

      That's OK ... while I enjoy Morrissey's music ... I don't desire to be his lap dog. Well, maybe slightly, only slightly less than I used to.

      Amazon UK appear to have amended the titles correctly to:
      The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master)
      The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition] Box set

      And they've knocked a tenner off the price. Now all they need to do it knock three months off the release date.

      A blog that includes all I have to say about the smiths (including the queen is dead) in that period of time and what it still means to me today.


      Today, thanksgiving, I got up early and put 52 miles on the bike. Sunny and crisp, in the low 50 degrees for most of the ride. Comfortably dressed and feeling a rise in strength and endurance coming over this specific periodization of base training.

      Family and I then drove to one of our nearest relatives to have dinner with them. We don't see them often and it is a multi hour drive to get there. Had a wonderful dinner, lots of talking. We were all exhausted but loaded into the car for the long drive home. About an hour into the drive home, I find I am the only one still awake in the vehicle. Hurdling down the highway I have a great sense of responsibility to stay alert and protect me and mines.

      I have shuffle playing and a smiths song comes on from the first album. I am sentimental and play the album queen is dead and strangeways from start to finish. I hear so many things in the music and lyrics it is a flood of the past.

      I was 16 when I bought the queen is dead. I was 17 when I bought strangeways here we come. I was 18 when I eagerly awaited and bought morrissey's solo life changer, viva hate.

      Viewing the timeline of my Morrissey fan life, as others may be different, I thought, wow, what a perfect succession of albums at such a key couple of years of my life. I feel lucky for when these albums came out with the formative and questionable years that they collided with. I'm sure each fan has a specific period of time and albums that cemented something in them. Forever imprinting, to never be taken away.

      My wife awoke during strangeways, while I was softly singing away. I looked at her and said, I bought this album when I was 17 and I will probably know these lyrics for the rest of my life. As I softly finished the album by singing I won't share you. It applies today, this zeal I feel, it is my time.


      I will definitely be buying this when it is released
