Available here is a 12” vinyl LP by The Smiths A Nice Bit Of Meat. An unofficial pressing, it was issued in the UK by Veg Records and bears the catalogue number MEAT 006. Undated, it probably appeared in the late 80s. Please see the rear panel image for the track listing.

Matrix / Runout - Side A - Etched - VG-1
Matrix / Runout - Side B - Etched - VG-1

Condition - Very Good- - The vinyl is reasonably bright and clean and while a few light surface marks are present, there are no worrying scratches. Having listened all the way through, sound wise quality is variable but pretty commensurate with a release of this nature but still quite listenable. There is no jumping or sticking but there is a degree of background noise and crackle, perhaps most noticeable at the start of the first side. For the most part this is not excessive and may be partly due to the actual pressing. Expect to hear additional light clicks on occasions, some of them running sequentially.

Cover/Sleeve Condition - Excellent- - Original nude Marilyn Monroe picture sleeve with just minor signs of wear but no damage. Inner plain white sleeve is comparable.

It is not my intention to profit from postage. If possible I use good clean recyclable material but I also buy bubble wrap, brown paper, packing tape and glue and all items are well wrapped and protected before posting. Items are also weighed and postage calculated before I list at auction and a small percentage of the charge does go towards packing costs.

I will accept returns on any item which is not as described and refund all costs upon safe receipt. See “Me” for further general despatch information.
