Morrissey is never one to do things the accustomed way, instead throughout his career he’s carved a niche in the musical landscape which only he can occupy. And his decision to curate a brand new compilation at very short notice ahead of his tour dates, with new liner notes and a few surprises in the tracklisting, shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone.
So here it is, This Is Morrissey. A collection of studio classics, live tracks and the alternative Mael mix of the ever-popular ‘Suedehead’, all chosen by the man himself; “The album is so full of life, and worthy questions, and great choruses, and quite playful”.
Housed in a spined sleeve and anti-static Japanese bag, with a four page booklet and brand new liner notes by author Fiona Dodwell. The thirteen track vinyl edition, with additional track ‘Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together’, is complete with identical liner notes only this time written in French, another of Morrissey’s little curio’s.
