Smiths3

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.
