The Best of the Smiths collections didn't work because they didn't have a sense of history and distorted the underlying sense of urgency that helped make the Smiths important. Singles simply collects all of the singles from one of the greatest singles bands since the Beatles. It's essential and influential guitar pop, presented in a way that makes sense and is endlessly listenable.
The Smiths': For The Smiths' self-titled debut, the band used an image of 1960s actor and sex symbol Joe Dallesandro. A protege of Andy Warhol, it's also Dallesandro's bulging, denim-clad crotch that takes pride of place on The Rolling Stones’ ‘Sticky Fingers’ cover. Rank': British actress Alexandra Bastedo was chosen by the band to adorn the cover of live album 'Rank'. Like Morrissey, Bastedo was a committed vegetarian and an advocate for animal welfare – after her acting days were over, she briefly served as the president of her local branch of the RSPCA.
If you are new to The Smiths, this is a fantastic album. yikes, haven't heard that from Britney) and a riff you just never forget. There are other great bands from the '80s, but The Smiths were unique. When they disbanded after the 'Strangeways' album (in 1987 I think), it was a kind of blessing only in that they quit before the energy and creativity left. Their last album is a stunner - nothing half hearted. I've seen this happen in other people's lives, now it's happening in mine.
