I found this collection dissapointingly typical of many of the "official" Smiths videos and memorabilia being released. It's a good collection of their popular/best songs, but sadly recycled from old BBC tapes in the form of Top of the Pops performances and the like. Most of these videos appear on VH2 with such frequency, you'd be wise to have a night in and capture all of these videos on your trusty VHS for next to nothing.
However, if you are new to the Smiths and been unable to see any of their videos, buy it, not least for the improved sound quality. But, if, like me, you are tired of the same material being reissued, you are wasting your money buying this, which is a shame because I'm still waiting for something a little bit more revealing.
For reasons that are unknown to me, there is some brilliant material on the smiths that is available on bootlegs and from other performances on TV that are rarely aired such as Morrissey interviews, and numerous performances from the Tube, etc that rarely get a mention, not to mention some good quality concert footage.
Can we have something new and different please?
