Morrissey‘s third solo album, 1992’s Your Arsenal will be reissued on 25 February 2014 by Parlophone Records.
The Mick Ronson produced long player was a return to form following the disappointing Kill Uncle and featured five singles including We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful and You’re The One For Me, Fatty.
This reissue is being branded the ‘Definitive Master’ and is a new remastering of the album. The CD will include a bonus DVD, featuring a previously unreleased live concert recorded at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California on 31 October 1991, with the band that would record Your Arsenal.
Being Morrissey, he has to tinker a little bit and the original version of Tomorrow is replaced by with the US Mix. Thankfully the cover photo has not been changed, but like the Viva Hate reissue, perfectly good typography has been needlessly altered. Also, the lets-pretend-this-is-a-sixties-record placement of the Parlophone logo (top right) is getting a little tiresome. The original cover looked cleaner and more attractive than this new treatment.
The Your Arsenal ‘definitive master’ reissue will also be available on heavyweight gatefold vinyl.
