The Smiths compilation album The World Won’t Listen was released on February 23rd, 1987, and was one of the last few releases while the band were still together. The album’s title was chosen by Morrissey as a reaction to the ignorance of the mainstream press and audience towards the band’s output, and ironically enough, it reached no. 2 in the UK charts. Despite the compilation being a very necessary follow-up to Hatful of Hollow, the record became redundant with the release of the perhaps superior US compilation Louder than Bombs, which was eventually issued in the UK as well. The World Won’t Listen, despite this, has an impressive track listing, and arguably the better album cover. Tracklist: Panic (Single A-side) 2:21. Ask (Remix of single A-side) 3:15. London (B-side of Shoplifters of the World Unite ) 2:07. Bigmouth Strikes Again (From The Queen Is Dead) 3:13.
