    The promotional advert (clue in the name) is still available on FB official page, but some marketing genius has limited the audience.
    (Link resolves to a digital portal for Apple Music, Deezer & Google Play).

    Not so much a 'release' in the US, but Amazon and indie stockists are supplying the vinyl as an import:


    Amazon, despite still using the Sire cover have added a picture of the back of the record which is the Parlaphone version - the picture isn't brilliant, but the French liner notes can be made out:
    (They also have the CD now tagged as 'UK edition').

    So, it looks like all vinyl buyers gets the 13 track version.
    To help collectors, does anyone have a different version?

      Got mine in the mail from Best Buy a day early (yesterday). Love the cover! Gonna give it a spin tonight after work with a cold beer.

      Mods: I can find no evidence of a US cd release today - it is the same CD that has been available in the UK since the UK release? The indie shops certainly haven't showed any yet.

      I think we can all agree this is the worst ever Morrissey compilation. A money grab. Half the tracks are shit and the album cover is a big yawn.

      The vinyl I received in the US is the same as you pictured.

      Thanks David, it appears to be a localisation issue as the cheaper one doesn't show to me. Have seen it now though. It will be interesting to see images of this product as it will be the only thing released that differs from everything else (excluding individual country's curios that sometimes get made).

      An Amazon "Add-on" item. How sad.

      I disagree vehemently, Morrissey looks great on the album cover! (agree with you on the rest....)

      I suppose this might be worth it simply for the studio version of "Jack the Ripper". (That is the case, correct? It's the elusive studio version?)

      Can’t get over this beautiful cover photo and
      wonderful retro layout. And as always, another compilation is another opportunity for a new generation to hear the unique genius that is....

      Really like how Moz put the titles on the front cover, so ya don't have to waste a lot of time flippin' the thing over.

      The same studio version that is the b-side to Certain People I Know? If so, if hardly call it elusive. You can still get original release of Certain People I Know in all formats, plus you can buy the CD Singles: 91 - 95 boxset, which contains Jack the Ripper, as well as the later condensed re-release of said boxset in the format of Singles 88 - 95.

      What a collausal waste of resources. This is simply mor rubbish for the bargain and recycle bins. 3 good tunes on the album. Everybody who's interested already has them in mumtiple formats.

      Another vulgar picture from the KING of money-grubbing has-been twats.
