Originally released as a U.S.-only compilation in 1987, the expansive 24-track Louder Than Bombs collects The Smiths' stray early singles, B-Sides, John Peel sessions and cuts from the 1984 U.K.-only compilation Hatful of Hollow. Featuring a wealth of material like the non-album singles "Sheila Take a Bow," "Shoplifters of the World Unite," "Panic," "Shakespeare's Sister" and "Ask" as well as B-sides that are virtually unavailable elsewhere in "Half a Person," "Stretch Out and Wait," Unloveable" and "Asleep," Louder Than Bombs is an essential and revelatory Smiths document reissued here on double 180g vinyl!
