Swords is a fantastic collection of b-sides, all hand picked by Morrissey, available together on one cd for the first time.
It draws b-sides from many of the singles taken from You are the Quarry, Ringleader of the Tormentors, Greatest Hits and Years Of Refusal.
Although these tracks were originally released as b-sides, heard together and alongside each other on this cd they sound superb as a collection in their own right. Opening with The Never Played Symphonies, the b-side to the top 3 hit Irish Blood English Heart, the album is a wonderful journey through some of Morrissey’s lesser heard tracks recorded over the last 5 years.
The initial orders come superbly packaged with a bonus disc recorded live in Warsaw. It contains 8 tracks never before released, recorded during his current 2009 world tour and captures Morrissey on awesome form.
