It was nineteen years ago when Steven Morrissey and Johhny Marr began writing together. They signed to Rough Trade and released their first single.
For a few years they were the biggest band around, they had some of the most passionate fans in rock history, yet hardly a Top Ten hit to show for it.
Five years later The Smiths released their last studio album and split up.
Since then we've had the The Best Of (note: this is The VERY Best Of...), the Singles collection and each studio album has been re-released.
This time we've got twenty-three tracks including What Difference Does It Make?, How Soon Is Now?, Bigmouth Strikes Again, This Charming Man, Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now...
No rare/unreleased/remixed tracks but this is fantastic music from a fantastic band.
