Morrissey Bona Drag on 180g 2LP
Originally issued in 1990, Bona Drag brings together the former Smiths vocalist's first seven singles, four of which went Top 10: his Top 5 debut, "Suedehead," the anthemic "Everyday Is Like Sunday," "Interesting Drug," and "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys." Rounding out the album are the Top 20 hits "Ouija Board, Ouija Board," "November Spawned A Monster" and "Piccadilly Palare" alongside a selection of high quality b-sides from all the singles.
With Morrissey's full involvement, the original album was remastered and expanded in 2010 with six previously unreleased tracks including: "Happy Lovers At Last United" (outtake from 'Sunday' sessions), "Lifeguard On Duty" (outtake from Viva Hate sessions), "Please Help The Cause Against Loneliness" (demo) (outtake from Viva Hate), "Oh Phoney" (outtake from Bona Drag sessions), "The Bed Took Fire" (early version of "At Amber") and "Let The Right One Slip In" (alternate long mix).
Directing the artwork for the reissue, Morrissey also chose to return the cover art to its natural color and to update the back and inner artwork with a selection of favorite, hand-picked and rarely-seen photos.
