Two slightly different sleeves were released in Holland for this single.
This rarer second sleeve came with a much darker orange tint than the standard issue. It was housed within a gatefold sleeve, which opened out to reveal a black-and-white image of the band, taken by Lawrence Watson at their last-ever photo shoot. One features text only, the other repeats the front cover photo. The German release of this classic song, has 60s pools winner Viv Nicholson on the sleeve. The initial CD of Hatful Of Hollow was similarly styled to the vinyl copy, with its predominately blue cover.
Barbarism Begins At Home is one of the most popular. One-sided promo sent to Dutch radio in to support the newly-released Meat Is Murder. It comes in a plain white die-cut sleeve. Rare CD edition of this uninspiring Australia-only release and still remarkably collectable though. The Japanese had the same idea as the Australians see previous entrybut called their 2CD Super Twins and added an essential obi strip.

The Dutch got round this by pressing one-sided white label copies of the single and including them in initial LP pressings. She complained, and it was quickly withdrawn. More German coloured vinyl, this time in an attractive green. Heavily imported into the UK at the time, but still highly desirable all these years later.
Unsure if you have a first pressing? Look for a solid centre, Capitol logos, no anti-slip serrations around the label edge, and a Manchester address on the rear of the sleeve.
If you can tick all four, bingo! Of all the many different issues of this single around the world, the most coveted is the orangesleeved edition released in Australia. Japanese vinyl pressings are in demand from collectors of all bands, due to the high quality of their manufacture, and the pressing of This Charming Man released a year after the UK is no exception.
When the single was reissued in the 80s, The Smiths was on the front. Sales were minimal, making this tough to find. This was unknown to the previous Top listing but is an absolute joy to own. Some copies were misprinted with the wrong colour schemes, resulting in bizarre colour tints for many of the covers featured on the inner.
The backing colour was magenta instead of yellow and the photo of Pat Phoenix was a pale green instead of lilac.

Both use the original William It Was Really Nothing artwork but changed from green to a pretty lilac colour. Due to the thin paper that these sleeves are printed on, both versions are very hard to find in Mint condition.

The alternative How Soon Is Now? For Bigmouth Strikes Again, the rare version has the text on the front in blue rather than the standard grey as expected. In addition, the labels are silver. This Dutch test pressing is a good example. Of all the many strange and wonderful The Smiths records released around the world, this one takes the biscuit.
Some test pressings of this album come with a misprinted sleeve with no image on the front cover. Only three copies have ever appeared on the market. This green label test press is significantly more. The image was first used for the promotional posters for the The Queen Is Dead tour in a green tint, recycled in blue for this release. The rear of the sleeve is available in two slightly different designs. It does, but in minuscule numbers.
Another case of two sleeves for one single from Dutch Megadisc. This record and sleeve combo has been re-pressed officially three times in recent years, but collectors hanker for the original.The Smiths - This Charming Man (LP)
There are a few exceptions, including this one with Mayking labels. A handful would have been made. Another test pressing of The Queen Is Dead has plain white labels but is wrapped in a folded proof sleeve. So a new pressing plate was required for the B-side, resulting in this very rare one-sided blue label test pressing. This version has a test tone on the B-side. One of the all-time classic The Smiths rarities. The wrong tapes, which included an out-take of How Soon Is Now?
When it comes to non-UK test pressings, most are exactly that a handful run off in the factory to check the quality of the press, and frequently discarded afterwards.
As a result, they are very scarce. In particular, look out for test pressings from Sweden and France, as well as Germany, where this beauty is from. Pressed on black vinyl when it was only commercially available in three coloured versions.
Two versions of this specimen exist, one with Mayking labels and the other with blank pink labels. This rare set of ttest pressings features the long version of the song on one disc and the edit on the other.
This was caused by ink failure similar to the green text on the front of Strangeways Here We Come and have only a novelty value. An essential item for any serious The Smiths collection. This release is frequently paired with press material.
Manufactured by K-Disc Mastering on Sunset Boulevard, this set of two onesided acetates has custom labels and a custom white sleeve. Only a couple would ever have been manufactured, for use at the offices of Sire. He rejected it, suggesting the band re-record the song, which they did in a studio near Manchester. This version was their first hit. The original rejected pressings are incredibly rare.
Both sides of the vinyl are in excellent condition, should sound amazing Jacket has some very light edge, corner ware.
