Morrissey latest album available on vinyl and "vinyl"

The recent release from Morrissey, former singer of The Smiths, entitled "Year Of Refusal" is not only available on vinyl LP, but the CD is made to appear like a vinyl record.

Not since his time with The Smiths have I really enjoyed so much any of Morrissey's work. This album is brilliant and deserves a listen. Pick it up now on Attack Records/Lost Highway.

It was the last album produced by the young legendary punk/alt-rock producer Jerry Finn, who died at the age of 39, shortly after finishing this album, from a cerebral hemorrhage.

The album features:
Jeff Beck (guitar legend)
Mark Isham (jazz trumpeter legend famed for his movie scores and new age albums)
Boz Boorer (guitarist from 80's new wave rockabilly group The Polecats)
Jesse Tobias (guitarist for Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1993)
Matt Walker (drummer for Smashing Pumpkins, Filter and Garbage)
Chrissie Hynde (lead singer of The Pretenders)*

* the track Chrissie Hynde is on, "Shame Is the Name" is only available on the iTunes version and not on the CD or vinyl.
