    Rolling Stone Germany: April, 2020 - free CD with a Morrissey track

    Not something you see too often these days, but I Am Not A Dog On A Chain features as a free track. Minor in collectible terms, but some will want it for novelty value I'm sure. Thanks to Krix for the info. Regards, FWD.

    "I Am Not A Dog On A Chain" released (March 20, 2020)

    Funnily enough, HMV (Birmingham) had more stock of red vinyl than black which was odd. Not sure how the amounts panned out for dedicated indie stores though. But, more than likely, yes it will probably be worth snagging a black vinyl if collectors haven't done so already. Speaking of formats -...

    Darling, I Hug A Pillow - The trumpets are from what song?

    Danny Levin is quite a prolific musician and is credited as playing on it - so probably not a sample at all.

    Poll Opening songs

    I have a fondness for Teachers... as, having grown up surrounded by classical music, hearing Shostakovich in a Morrissey song coupled with the way it builds always stuck with me. Probably not the 'best' opener, but one I appreciate. Regards, FWD.

    What does Morrissey do?

    The basketball shots are simply because Sunset Studios has a small basketball court. Prince used it too. So just snaps in between recording L.P.'s vocals is my guess. In the daytime: Regards, FWD.
