The Smiths limited edition Complete Collector’s Boxset on Rhino


Morrissey continues to get the headlines (for better or worse) some 30 years or so after the group formed, but very soon, you'll be able to re-discover just why he came to prominence in the first place – by grabbing The Smiths Complete Collector's Boxset on Rhino.

It's impressive. Even if you have all the original albums in your collection, you'll be tempted by this. As long as you are a Smiths fan, that is. The collection has been 'reworked' by Johnny Marr and Rhino UK, with the set including all four of the band's studio albums (The Smiths, Meat Is Murder, The Queen Is Dead and Strangeways, Here We Come) plus live album Rank and compilations Hatful Of Hollow, The World Won’t Listen and Louder Than Bombs. Each has been taken back to original tape sources and remastered by Johnny Marr at Metropolis Studios in London.

Woodstock Experience Multimedia Boxset

The Woodstock Experience Multimedia Boxset was actually released in 2009, to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the festival, but we must have missed it then.

The set is an official product, created with the assistance of Woodstock Executive Producer Michael Lang and was published as a signed limited edition of only 1,000 copies. Supplied in a handmade case, it consists of an authorised history by 60 musicians, staff and audience members, illustrated by Woodstock's official photographer, Henry Diltz, unseen photography of Dan Garson, a 7" vinyl record and a fine art print by Peter Max and an authentic Woodstock ticket.

Amazon and Paul Smith both have two copies each in stock, priced £395.
