AFTER MAKING A SPLASH WITH THEIR FIRST TWO 12-INCHES, “Hand In Glove” and “This Charming Man”, The Smiths quickly retreated to the studio to record their self-titled debut full-length. The album was met with lukewarm reviews (mostly citing the unsatisfactory work of producer John Porter) and failed to produce a worthy successor to their string of successful singles, but the band had a plethora of additional material leftover from a handful of John Peel sessions and b-sides. Dissatisfied with their tepid entry in the album charts, Rough Trade collected these tracks and took another stab at a worthy Smiths full-length, and with the arrival of Hatful Of Hollow, their prior false-start was instantly forgiven by fans and the press alike. Hatful contains definitive versions of some of The Smiths’ best songs: the acoustic version of “Back To The Old House”, culled from a 1983 Peel session, is an uncharacteristically intimate and haunting entry in The Smiths’ catalog; with a very rare use of echo on Morrissey’s voice during the coda particularly hair-raising. Hatful Of Hollow is a unanimous favorite of all Smiths enthusiasts, and a terrific point of entry for anyone looking to see what the fuss is all about.

Black vinyl gatefold edition.
