Edited version of "The Queen Is Dead" previously released on The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?. The three B-side tracks, which are the only Smiths instrumental tracks, have never been compiled for release on one single until now.
Terrible quality pressing. First copy of 12" has a small but deep warp right at start. Needle skips bad. Second copy recieved has pit or dimple same exact spot. Needle thumps and skips. So frustrating, because rest of track sounds more amazing than I've ever heard :(
I ordered this 12" on discogs , still has to reach to me ... In Belgium a few shops sold this one but where immediately sold out ! Is there anyone who know in howmuch copies this limited edition was released ?
Dubious quality pressing i'm afraid. Just played it and the A side seems to have some heat damage on my copy. Played through but the start of the B side had some skips and jumps. It's from where they pack them so quickly after pressing and seal them in cellophane. The quality control from these people is abject.
