  The Complete Guide to the Music of The Smiths & Morrissey/Marr by Johnny Rogan
ISBN 0-7119-4900-X
UK order number OP 47768
Notes: it's only small (about the size of a CD, it fits rather nicely on my CD rack) but it contains reviews of all the Smiths' albums (except the Peel sessions) and all of Morrissey's work up to and including World of Morrissey. There are some very interesting tidbits of information in this book - lots of stuff re where Morrissey gets his samples from. Of course, the interpretations of the songs are only Rogan's opinion, but then he does know a little about Morrissey and the Smiths. It's always interesting to here someone else's reading of a song. There are also some delightful photographs (eight pages of colour - oooohhh!), both of Morrrissey, the whole band, and each individual, most of which I've never seen before. I guess what I'm saying is, I highly recommend this book! - Mark Collins
