Slicing Up Eyeballs points us to a recently unearthed 17-minute documentary about the band who would one day release a $410 box set. According to the Rhino UK, the ‘lost’ ‘for press’ video’ was reportedly commissioned in 1992 to support the Best album.

The Smiths – Complete, which includes remastered versions of the band’s eight albums, in addition to all 25 of their singles on individual 7″‘s, a DVD, prints, and more, is due out October 3rd via Rhino UK. Less expensive vinyl and CD editions will also be available. Pre-order your preference here.

I would pay thousands to see them play live.  One of the greatest bands of our generation, still influencing so many new artists.
