Bona Drag is a compilation album by Morrissey released on 15 October 1990. The album features an array of Morrissey's most popular songs from his early solo career, most of which had not been released on any previous album. The album name meaning nice outfits is an example of the subculture slang Polari explored further on the album's first track "Piccadilly Palare". The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on 6 December 2000.
While the record conveniently overlooks some rarities, the selections on Bona Drag are uniformly first-rate and many of the songs - "Picadilly Palare," "Interesting Drug," "November Spawned a Monster," "The Last of the Famous International Playboys," "Lucky Lisp," "Disappointed," "He Knows I'd Love to See Him," and "Ouija Board, Ouija Board" - are Morrissey classics, arguably making Bona Drag.
Supposedly Morrissey contemplated releasing a second solo album entitled Bona Drag, but gave up the idea to release a compilation of singles and B-sides also called Bona Drag. The reception of it was not kind. Well, call me too faithful a Moz-follower, but I think BD is one of several high lights in the Moz career. Perhaps the expectations to a Morrissey album are simply too high if an album like this won't do it?! Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

Bona Drag is a good album. Morrissey is a genius. The lyrics are amazing, the instrumentals are terrific, and Morrissey has a lovely voice. My fav morrissey compilation album was my early burglary years but it was never realesed on vinyl so this became my next choice. Good pick, loved all the bonus tracks. It came with a huge poster of morrissey and i honestly don’t know what to do with it hehe.
