Wonderful cover with a frame from "Il Vangelo secondo Matteo" di Pier Paolo Pasolini

Awesome 12" BUT terrible quality pressing. Has a small but deep warp right at start. Needle skips!!!
Nikok Nikok
Terrible quality pressing. First copy of 12" has a small but deep warp right at start. Needle skips bad. Second copy recieved has pit or dimple same exact spot. Needle thumps and skips. So frustrating, because rest of track sounds more amazing than I've ever heard :(
Darksinger Darksinger
Same here man. So frustrating and it wasn't a cheap record....
Wohald Wohald
My US copy is clean, dynamic, and overall a very well done pressing. They're going fast at my local RS.
Olma Olma
Not very limited my local record store amoeba music had at least 100 if not more and let's just say they're not exactly flying off the shelves

I ordered this 12" on discogs , still has to reach to me ...In Belgium a few shops sold this one but where immediately sold out !Is there anyone who know in howmuch copies this limited edition was released ?
Fenius Fenius
Available in most rsd stores in UK, even found the 12" in FOPP.
Winn Winn
Seems to also be available in the US. Only $13 each from Bullmoose for both the 7 or 12"s.,190295905347

Dubious quality pressing i'm afraid. Just played it and the A side seems to have some heat damage on my copy. Played through but the start of the B side had some skips and jumps. It's from where they pack them so quickly after pressing and seal them in cellophane. The quality control from these people is abject.
Grinin Grinin
mine has a small warp too in the first few seconds of side be. Needles lifts and its audible.

Is that a eastern European EU pressing GZ? Because my local shop had numerous copies with this fault.

Sorry to hear that, mine is excellent heavy flat vinyl and great sound quality
Nightscar Nightscar
Mine sounds amazing with no pops or ticks whatsoever. Flat as a board with no scuffs. I think they did an amazing job!

It is official. i've just picked up copies of the 12 and pic disc for myself but the shops are not allowed to advertise it or sell online. So you have to call in or maybe phone them.

This and the 7" are supposedly getting officially released June 16th. So yes it is official and you hopefully shouldn't have to pay flipper prices.

If we check RSD version of The Boy With The Thorn In His Side ( we can almost conclude it is official. The Catalogue number is similar and also the labels.
Leyl Leyl
We are a 19 year old record store in Hungary. We bought 3 copies directly from the local official Warner distributor, thus I have my doubt this is a bootleg.
Cogelv Cogelv
Coming from a discogs store who has quite a few unofficial titles. Sorry I'm still skeptical
Yanki Yanki
How were these released? Maybe whoever is selling them can help me? How were these obtained on the first hand market? Until I get an answer I am skeptical of this being an official release unless factory workers at Warner are sneaking these home from the press before it "officially" gets released. Too many questions and not enough answers
Mash Mash
Do you own an actual copy? Else you would be less skeptical.
Uanabimo Uanabimo
Can anybody confirm if this is a official release?why there are no information about in internet?Thank you.
Unirtay Unirtay
there's no info about it online cause it's a bootleg.
Thordigda Thordigda
I got my copy last week and I agree, this can't be a bootleg. Superb record and sound!
Broadcaster Broadcaster
I just got my copy, I am 99,9% certain it is an official release. No signs of being a bootleg whatsoever.
Molace Molace
There were rumors about its release in occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Lp. Apparently though last I heard this song was never going to be released as single upon records company decision, in spite of Morrisey's explicit request. Still waiting for new infos.
Samutilar Samutilar
It is official, perfectly legal. The people who bought it will receive their copies soon and hopefully they will also comment on this being an official release.
