The Smiths being that rare band who consistently churned out singles what were the equal or better of their albums, here is a Smiths singles discography. Due to the fantastic number of singles the band released, I'll be arranging the discography by country, starting with UK releases. UK Singles (All are on Rough Trade records unless otherwise noted): In the early 90s, WEA (which I think had perhaps aquired the Smiths' US label Sire) began (re-)issuing cd singles to accompany the release of the Best...I and Best...II compilations. These singles follow the common british practice of appearing in several different versions to enourage fans to buy all of them (in part because the sales of each different single contributes to a single chart position listing). The next single accompanied the release of the Singles compilation.
  • Ask 7"/CD (February 1995). 7" is as original and CD is as the original 12". Cover art is the same.

For future noding: US and other international singles of interest. 1/17/03
