      I also found it interesting that this copy does not have "This Charming Man" on its Tracklist (the Single was added afterwards only to US presses). However, the Song is still first on the B-Side - secretly hidden without mention on Tracklist. Lucky me. Don't know if this is true for other copies, but I would assume so..

        Really odd. I bought this album new in the UK in 1984, in HMV, possibly Virgin late August of that year It has the original UK sleeve, The Smiths printed in grey and Rough 61 on the spine. The record appears to be this promo copy. It was and still is housed in a clear poly inner sleeve. Theres no Z as Fyingnun mentions though.

          Looks nice but it doesn’t have this charming man. Garbage.

            One of the all time great debut albums. Nothing like this before or since. A must own.

              I have the exact same version as photographed except no promo sticker on disk. Anyone have any additional insight or details? Could this just be the standard Argentinian copy and not listed on Discogs yet? I originally purchased off of a third party seller on Amazon (US) around 2011-2012.

                I concur with Lord Rockingham. I think it has been established this blue label version is the rarest of the three (3) UK pressings. The grey label cursive and stencil pressings are plentiful…quite puzzling.

                  I bought this LP on release day but my version has the darker grey/purple text and the "Words: Morrissey" and "Music: Marr". So I think we can say that the 2 versions with the Rough Trade cursive logo and the "Words: Morrissey" and "Music: Marr" were both issued at the same time and it was just luck of the draw which version you got on release day. So I would describe it as one of two original earliest label designs rather than THE earliest original label design.

                    Sensational pressing and package. Dead quiet, punchy, dynamic, instrumentation separation all on point. The insert with the Japanese and English lyrics and Japanese interview + band photos is sublime. Very lucky I scored a minty copy in a shop a few months back. My 1984 US pressing sounds great, but this one is clearly superior.

                      Fantastic quality this pressing. Punchy, breathy, separation between instruments, stereo all on point.

                        Incredible pressing, particularly compared to the newer reissue. Dead quiet, great spacing between instruments, and Morrissey sounds like he’s in the room. The reissue by comparison sounds a little bloated and unfocused.
