Rectangular Japanese 'sample' sticker on rear, plus around disc inner stamped wording.

Comes with obi-strip and includes fold-out b&w insert with Japanese liner notes and lyrics translation.

This new Japanese edition was released by WEA who had just purchased the rights to the complete Smiths catalogue the year before. It was modelled on its European counterpart and the packaging is superior to that of the Victor releases. It finally shows the cd artwork on the front which was not the case with the earlier Victor compact discs. Unlike its European counterpart, the Japanese cd has the barcode on the back of the obi instead of the back of the cd tray inlay. The obi is light blue-green and beige with a blue "Smiths Original Catalogue" crest common to all re-releases in the series. Its back covers the complete backspace and displays over a beige background "The Smiths Original Catalogue", an illustrated list of the eight albums being reissued by WEA. The disc is purple/maroon with grey text. The cd tray is made of white plastic. Information about the booklet is needed. Some copies included a mail-in card to order t-shirts and caps.

Recorded live at the The National Ballroom, Kilburn in London, October 1986.

Entrance: "Romeo and Juliet" - The Philadelphia Orchestra (Prokofiev).
"(Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame (Medley)" by Pomus, Schuman.
Exitus: "You'll Never Walk Alone" - Shirley Bassey (Rogers and Hammerstein).

Rank is the only live album by English band the Smiths. It was released in September 1988 by their British record company Rough Trade, and reached No. 2 in the British charts. In the United States, the album was released on Sire Records and made No. Rank was released as a contractual obligation. It was recorded almost two years earlier on 23 October 1986 at National Ballroom in Kilburn, London, and is a fourteen-track distillation of 21 songs by singer Morrissey from the complete concert. The Smiths is the self titled debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records. After the original production by Troy Tate was felt to be inadequate, John Porter re-recorded the album in London, Manchester and Stockport during breaks in the band's UK tour during September 1983. The album was well received by critics and listeners, and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks. The Smiths The Smiths were together for a little over five years, and their career moved at such incredible speed, even they sometimes struggled to keep up. This is very much the story of their debut album. Originally recorded with producer Troy Tate, Morrissey and Rough Trade were underwhelmed by what they heard and hired John Porter to fix it, who felt the albums problems were so severe that it should be re-recorded from scratch. Listen free to The Smiths Rank The Queen Is Dead, Panic and more. 14 tracks 48:06. For many Smiths fans, Rank is as close as they will get to a live performance from Morrissey, Johnny Marr, and company. Recorded live at The National Ballroom in London in October of 1986, roughly six months before they disbanded altogether, these 14 songs capture the Smiths performing in full-on rock-star mode. Though Grant Showbiz's production and engineering work consistently places Morrissey's voice too loud in respect to the rest of the band, the performance is suitably epic, hit-packed, and engrossing.
