The Smiths, forever.


250 sterline. Edizione limitata in 3mila copie. Tutto quello che gli Smiths hanno realizzato in carriera. 8 album in CD (“mini-LP replica packaging with gatefold card wallets”) e altrettanti in vinile audiophile 180gr, 25 singoli in versione 7″ (con “specially reproduced rarities”), oltre a poster (“a 36-inch by 24-inch poster of all album and single cover artwork”), DVD dei loro video (“‘The Complete Picture’ DVD featuring all of the band’s music videos”), codice per scaricare in digitale “as high-quality, 320kbps MP3 files”, booklet con “expanded liner notes” e “Eight-inch by 12-inch art prints of each album cover’s artwork”.

Dunque i quattro album ufficiali, le tre compilazioni e il live album ‘Rank’ rimasterizzato dai nastri originali da Johnny Marr e Frank Arkwright. Chi non può permettersi questo incredibile cofanetto la Rhino ha previsto un box solo con i vinili in 1000 copie al prezzo che dovrebbe attestarsi intorno alle 150 sterline ed uno con i CD (in uscita il 26 settembre) al costo di circa 35 sterline.
