Reprise (the Smiths' label in the USA) thought it wiser to release an EP of rarities as a companion to the "Singles" album, instead of re-releasing "Ask" like WEA did in Europe. All the tracks on "Ask" were easily found on albums, making it less appealing to potential buyers than this collection of b-sides previously unreleased in the USA and out-of-print in the rest of the world.
A still of boxer Cornelius Carr from Morrissey's video for the song "Boxers", by James O'Brien. A different still (shown left) is found on the back. It is repeated inside the cd-single, without credits over it.
