During the course of their career, The Smiths released 3 compilation albums which every fan worth their salt felt obliged to own, even though two of them were originally only available in the UK and one was only available in the US. The first of the UK-only releases was the immortal Hatful of Hollow, and the other was this one, which came out in February 1987, and was intended as a collection of the band's singles and B-sides released between 1985 and 1987. In the end, it actually ended up featuring a couple of other tracks, too: "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby," which was intended as a single but ended up being passed over in favour of "Shoplifters of the World Unite," and "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," which was talked up as a single from The Queen Is Dead but never materialized as such.
