19 Tracks for only ONE POUND.

Part of amazon's Glastonbury promotion, for one day only.

Morrissey will be warming the crowd for U2 tomorrow - either a stroke of genius or a car-crash waiting to happen, let's hope for the former. If Mozzer can overcome his shyness we could be in for something great and he might even get a new recording contract :)

To celebrate Amazon are offering this excellent introduction to Mozzers work for a measily quid.

Totally agree. It'll be good if they play together though, maybe 'Everyday Is Like Sunday Bloody Sunday'

I get the feeling people are probably voting cold because they don't like Morrissey :|

edit: It's warmed up a little since then.

The price for this album is a fantastic bargain.

This is great, since it's 1987 and I'm a pre-Emo depressed American high school girl and only Morrissey understands me.

Ah yes, the appeal of Morrissey extended far and wide. I guess anyone who appreciated highly articulate songwriting full of dark Manc wit would find him irresistible. Even South American migrant communities in the States have their own cult of Mhozz, which is intriguing.

If you are a bit of a knob you'd probably be best avoiding altogether, though,

Aah poor you


Doesn't he write his kitchen sink songs in somewhere like Berverley Hills these days? Like the Smiths more than his solo stuff

Morrissey is without doubt the greatest songwriter of the last 40 years...it's a shame he'll probably only be recognised for this, by the masses, in years to come, long after he's gone....

anyway you either get him and his music or you don't...bit like marmite...

Will be in his presence in Plymouth a week tonight, can't wait, the current tour's set list sounds great, will be my 15th Smiths/Moz gig...genius

I dunno if he's the best, but I can't think of anybody obviously better, and I wouldn't limit it to just 40.

Solo Mozzer is variable, but occasionally vital. However there are a handful of artists - solo & groups - who stand out in the history of pop music and the Smiths were one of them. A very, very special band.

For those of you who roll out the tired 'depressed/miserable/tuneless/etc.' cliches: I felt the same way once, but I persevered due to the reverence they were held in by people I respected, figured I must be missing something.

I was.

I genuinely hope you one day 'get it', like I finally did, and for those of you who do, I envy you that moment of revelation.

Well thanks for your critique, well actually no, that's a lie - if you don't like Morrissey, STFU, move along, you have no business here.

You got that right. I have been waiting for him to die for years, but sadly he has never obliged. Also, despite his narcissistic self image as some kind of 'people's poet', he is really just a tiresome controversialist - manufacturing publicity via cynically planned inflammatory statements.

I am voting hot though as I don't agree with people who vote cold on bargains because it is not to their taste.

Cracking price for the work of a genius. Not got this album yet but have a few others. Will be buying this today. Heat added.

True legend regardless of whether you like him or not.

How many legends can you see coming out of XYZ factor and the likes (pleez.No SUBO mention)

Heat to OP can't go wrong for a squid. Good tracks on the album.

Whilst i like Morissey ( and moreso The Smiths) , i have to concede his Glastonbury performance was dull and boring (though his vocals were good).
Mumford and sons gave a much better performance on the other channel at the same time last night ( and i have never seen or heard them before).

By my maths 2011-40=1971.

I double-checked on a calculator to make sure.

In that time we've had the likes of Bruce Springsteen, The Clash, The Stones, Nirvana and numerous others.

Kinda makes the phrase 'without doubt' seem a bit silly.

Err, and your point is...? Do you seriously consider any of those to be in the same league as Morrissey?? Yes, they may of penned the odd good song, but 'cmon I'm sure you can come up with some tougher competition than that for the last 40 years....( I tell you what I'll give you some help - Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Robert Plant, Pete Tonwsend, Bowie...you get the idea..)

I consider The Clash and Springsteen to be better, and a lot of people would agree. I'd also put Warren Zevon above him too.

Even if you personally disagree, the idea of saying Morrissey is 'without doubt' the best songwriter of the last 40 years is clearly absurd. There's obviously doubt, there are many other artists who have a good claim to that title even though it's such a subjective notion in the first place.

Interesting discussion.
After seeing The Smiths on their first couple of tours and not getting anything out of it I stopped going to see Morrissey live. His Glasto set was OK but lacking something - and let's face it, being over 50 doesn't help, of course.

But as a wordsmith, for me, he was extraordinary, and perhaps unprecedented in pop in the unusual specificity he brought to his song writing - that somehow resonated with a generation, when it could easily have been ridiculous and irrelevant (and which it clearly was, for some). All the other greats that have been mentioned - and a ton more - I might love their songs but on the whole they at some level are impressive 'generic' pop and rock lyrics - which isn't a bad thing.

Only by comparing 'fave lyrics' from any of the greats would help clarify the difference but arguing over 'old music' is maybe even more sad than still listening to it : )
