Vinyl spotting: The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead five-album box set

Oh yes, this is special. The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead five-album box set is coming our way in October.

Hot on the heels of the Morrissey movie comes a deluxe version of (arguably) his finest album. We can argue that point later. For now, let’s look at how a single album can turn into a five-album box.

Well, this is a replica of the CD set (also landing on the same day) and featuring the remastered album, a bonus set of demos, alternate takes and b-sides, plus a further album, Live In Boston, recorded at the Great Woods Center For The Performing Arts on August 5, 1986.

All of that is housed in a lift off box with two double gatefold albums and one single LP within.

The set lands on 20th October 2017 and is available to pre-order now, selling for £69.99. Track listing below if you want it plus an image of the set itself.
