About the albumEdit

The album covers material released between his 1988 debut album Viva Hate and his 1995 single "Boxers". The track listing bears a slight resemblance to that of 1997's Suedehead: The Best of Morrissey. The album also features a solo version of "Interlude" without Siouxsie Sioux. Strangely, it includes just one track from 1994's Vauxhall and I, Morrissey's commercial and critical high watermark. All tracks have been remastered for the album. The album did not chart in the top 75 but did reach number 80 on the UK Albums Chart.

Release and promotionEdit

In promotion of the album, the single "Glamorous Glue" from Your Arsenal was re-issued on CD and 7" vinyl. It charted at number 69 on the UK Singles Chart, replacing "Hold on to Your Friends" as Morrissey's lowest charting single.[2] It was the last Morrissey single to chart in the UK top 75, until "Spent the Day in Bed" also charted at 69 six years later.
