A new compilation of music by The Smiths has just been released, and to celebrate, Warner Music have pointed us in the direction of an interview conducted with Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and the studio engineer who oversaw the remastering of 45 tracks from the band's back catalogue, Frank Arkwright.

It's reproduced here in all its glory for you to read - and you'll also find a widget enabling you to see three videos ('Panic', 'Ask' and 'How Soon Is Now?') as well as hear a selection of tracks from the album itself.
