Celebrating 100 years of HMV, Morrissey's "Bona Drag" is number 5 in a list of special re-issues.
This limited edition comes in teal coloured vinyl, and includes a poster. There are two discs, plus photographs taken 30 years ago by Linder Sterling in Hoxton Square in London, and also a famous shot of Morrissey taken by Margaret Sison at Hollywood High School on Sunset Boulevard from the same period.
The album includes 7 UK hit singles, plus 6 tracks only recently available.

"You need courage to put your life into song … and in Bona Drag … there is my life."

-Morrissey, 2021.

The new "Bona Drag" is available on July 24.

You know what would make me excited? Seeing a legit rip of that Your Arsenal “for your consideration” bonus CD with the full, extended version of There Speaks A True Friend. This still hasn’t turned up anywhere. I love that song so much. @Famous when dead - do you have that photo of said disc archived anywhere? I remember seeing it in the downloads section years ago.
The Rhino reference disc?

(Luckily Irregular Regular saved the Ebay image - this is the only image of it kicking around).
Yes, There Speaks... remains the only one not shared from this - one day hopefully.

Central's information isn't correct to begin with.

NME: Morrissey announces special reissue of ‘Bona Drag’

Really dislike warped information.
So, for those in the future reading this:
HMV announced the record's use for their event on June 17.
This site carried the story on June 17.
Central made a post on June 26 (where they failed to mention 750 copies only - so not a true re-issue) and then again on July 14 (with nonsense about being number 5 - which is factually incorrect as they didn't bother reading the prior HMV article).
So no, Morrissey isn't 'announcing' anything, HMV did so a month ago.
The above isn't some form of cathartic rant, it's designed for people who actually are using search tools, look at articles for misinformation & the such.
Let's not forget the last HMV product (Vauxhall & I) wasn't even mentioned by Central until 17 days after it was announced and then sold - managing only a comment on its charting.
Petty, but accurate,
FWD.

Hmmmm… why do I keep thinking of it as “extended version”? If it’s an alternate version as listed there that makes it even more exciting! Surely someone must have it sitting on a hard drive somewhere? Oh the frustration.

I don't think you're wrong.
I was under the impression that this was the version without the abrupt ending - asserted to be about 59 seconds longer IIRC.

It has not sold out as there are no preorders being taken ( i work for hmv in newcastle ) its first come , first served on the morning at all stores , only 1 per person . They have kept some back i believe for the website but they dont go live until 4pm on the day.
I cannot say how many we are getting at our store but its not a great deal and we are one of the biggest stores so smaller stores will get less. If u r after one then best bet is to head down pre opening and Q

Nice to hear Morrissey speak of Bona Drag fondly, rather than damning those early years as being hard to think about.

So there is nothing on here this wasn't on the 2010 reissue is that correct ?

Re-issue, re-package, constantly quote Paint A Vulgar Picture, the usual deal.

repackaging of that quote is worse than the reissues
