      Can't take it serious when two of em say Viva Hate is better.

      Vauxhall and I is a masterpiece, one of the finest album ever produced. Every time i look at the sleeve i'm in awe, it takes me to some incredible places, some happy and some sad. Im so fucking proud of it.

      I just bought the 2 cd definitive Vauxhaul and I reissue. It is my second favorite Moz solo album just a tad behind Your Arsenal. Love the music obviously but was disappointed that there was no booklet just the cardboard and 2 cds in the package. Was mine missing one or was there just no booklet for this release? I like to have all the credits, lyrics and who played what etc... Can someone let me know if this is the case or mine was missing a booklet.

      Also I have Your Arsenal Definitive 2 disc reissue on order. Does this have no booklet as well.

      Big thanks to anyone who can help me out with some info!

      Cheers,

      Thanks Kewpie!
      Gave it a read. Puzzled by the lack of info / booklet but otherwise very happy with it so far. I like the mastering better and the bonus concert sold me on it. Does anyone know if Your Arsenal also has no booklet or info?

      Cheers,
      Rich

      I have the vinyl of both “Your Arsenal” and “Vauxhall and I” reissues. Neither of them have any extensive liner notes or anything. They look amazing though.

      It doesn't - apparently Morrissey's standard operating procedure for reissues these days. I believe the last to include musician credits was Maladjusted.

      It's a bit of a bumout that 1) the reissues don't have more "stuff" in them and 2) certain reissues tamper with the track list. In fact, if I recall correctly, the Vauxhall one is the first that doesn't change the track list/versions at all?

      Finally read this. It was an interesting read but I don’t agree that “Viva Hate” is “clearly” his best solo release either.

      Also, I had no idea the live set was missing songs. That ticks me off.
