"The Very Best Of Morrissey" bonus DVD and "Glamorous Glue" CD video quality

I got my Glamorous CD yesterday and the promo video on it has been taken directly from the Malady DVD, you can even see the title in the first split second! Does that mean that the new DVD will be pieced together from the three DVDs we already know? That would be disappointing, to say the least!

I don't understand why he won't release a COMPLETE collection of promo videos anyway ... at least up until the seven year break.

...I received the album yesterday, and the DVD really is in NTSC ... and naturally, the videos look worse than their respective counterparts on Hulmerist/Malady. What the hell were they thinking?

Credit for this is given to hipsterdisco.

A veteran opera singer gives her final performance, intercut by 8mm home movies of an early love affair. Directed by Derek Jarman & starring Tilda Swinton.

This promotional Video was put together in the early 1990s for a multimedia exhibition organised by Rough Trade which would have raised money for the Terrance Higgins Trust.

The planning ended when Rough Trade went into liquidation & The video was therefore only half finished. It would have had band footage over-layed {like the "Ask" and "Panic" videos}

...Well, I get my fun. And most of the fun I’ve managed to extract from this foul publicity stunt/dastardly power harnessing ritual has involved making this remix, which I did for Eddy Temple Morris’ XFM show last week. I now present it to you, as a present. Feel free to smash some television sets to it.

Radio 5 Live have just played part of an interview (presumably the Dermot O'Leary one) where Morrissey says that the Royal Family are benefit scroungers. Nicky Campbell commented "There goes his Knighthood!".

May be worth listening to Radio 5 Live, as I got the impression they were going to play some more.
