    The notes say 'embossed titles' but on mine only The Smiths is embossed. The LP title isn't. Anyone know if 'strangeways here we come' is embossed on this version as the notes say?

      The Smiths faded in with a harmonica intro on "Hand In Glove" and faded out with a harmonica outro on "I Won't Share You".

        Unbelievable quality. The definitive pressing. Bought in Manchester for 5 pound in a second hand shop 1992.

          This pressing sounds absolutely glorious. I'm speechless with how good this sounds... Incredibly black background, spacious, engaging and crystal clear. 10/10

            Does anyone who has a copy of this also think their vinyl looks kind of dark grey more than black?

                I wish this was Morrisseys solo record..It plays more like Morrissey record than a Smiths record
