Vauxhall and IMorrissey, Vauxhall and I: 20th Anniversary Definitive Master (Parlophone/Rhino)

It would appear that Moz and I share the same opinion of this record: so good, the track list doesn’t need to be played with. Add an unreleased live show from 1995 on a bonus CD, and this is a heck of a set for the discerning fan.

2CD: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K.
Vinyl: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K.

  1. Man, I’d love that Soundgarden. Problem is, the big Deep Purple Made in Japan box set just arrived at my door a few hours ago!

  2. I received the “Earthbound” CD today. (Great liner notes, Joe!) I thought it was supposed to include bonus tracks including the Love Hangover single. It was originally announced as “The Complete ABC Recordings.” I don’t recall seeing any announcement that the track listing had changed.

    On a less important note, I was also a bit disappointed that they didn’t reproduce the original ABC Records label art on the disc.
