Ranked 216/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Widely considered to be both The Smiths' finest work and one of the greatest albums ever made, ‘The Queen Is Dead' has cast a significant influence over subsequent generations since it was first released in the summer of 1986. Now Warner Bros. Records can confirms the details of a newly mastered and expanded version of the album.

The album features several of the band's finest moments including the title track and ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out', as well as the iconic singles ‘The Boy With The Thorn In His Side' and ‘Bigmouth Strikes Again'.

"You cannot continue to record and simply hope that your audience will approve, or that average critics will approve, or that radio will approve," says Morrissey. "You progress only when you wonder if an abnormally scientific genius would approve – and this is the leap The Smiths took with The Queen Is Dead."

Johnny Marr adds, "The Queen Is Dead was epic to make and epic to live."

5LP Vinyl Boxset - featuring the 2017 master of the album, additional recordings and the ‘Live In Boston' recording. Housed in lift off box with 2 double gatefolds and 1 single.

VINYL RECORDS

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.

VINYL REISSUES

Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
