First Smiths deluxe ? 3CD+DVD ? 5LP vinyl ? hi-res on DVD

Warners will issue multi-disc deluxe editions of The Smiths' 1986 album The Queen Is Dead on vinyl and CD, in October this year.

The album is generally considered to be the band's best work (although for this writer Strangeways, Here We Come gives it a good run for its money) and features the classic There Is A Light That Never Goes Out (only a single in France at the time, fact fans).

There are three physical formats for this release - which as you will note has updated artwork - a 3CD+DVD deluxe includes the remastered album, a bonus CD of demos, alternates and b-sides, a further CD: Live In Boston (recorded at the Great Woods Center For The Performing Arts on August 5, 1986) and a DVD featuring the 2017 master of the album in 96kHz / 24-bit PCM stereo. The DVD also includes The Queen Is Dead - A Film By Derek Jarman.

A five-LP box set includes all the audio listed above and is housed in lift off box with two double gatefolds and one single LP. A two-CD edition pairs the remaster with the bonus disc of demos etc.

All formats of this The Queen Is Dead reissue will be released on 20 October 2017.

Update: 7pm 20/7/17 - prices have increased already for both 3CD+DVD and 5LP in the UK. However, I think the former will come back down again, although perhaps not the latter.
