5LP Box Set Includes 2017 Master of Seminal Album & Previously Unreleased Material!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 218/500!

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. Warner Bros. Records now releases a newly mastered and expanded version of the album in this 5LP Box Set.

This 5LP Box Set features the 2017 master of the album, additional recordings and the 'Live In Boston' recording.

"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."
