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. This reissue represents the first time that The Smiths’ back catalogue has been revisited in such a way. 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.
