    TQID reissue virtual CD 5

    A compilation of 11 live tracks and "missing" demos, serving as a virtual fifth CD of the TQID reissue (the forth CD being made up of the download-only live tracks). I put this together primarily for myself. There's nothing new here, and I'm aware it omits one of the demos of Rubber Ring, but I...

    "Some Girls..." (live, Brixton Academy, London, Dec. 12, '86) released on Spotify

    Doesn't seem any different to the version we all know and love. Still has the slight tape hiss at the beginning. Quite perfect as it is, though. Related item: Share memories using the hashtag to appear on The Official Smiths site; new live track every Monday - July 31, 2017

    What Do You See In Him lyrics

    I googled for the lyrics to What Do You See In Him, but found the internet didn't have anything satisfactory to offer. Here's what I think the lyrics are, but maybe you hear differently. The toughest bit was the end of the second line. It's the only thing I can come up with that both sounds...

    "In Heat" live Smiths compilation, new version

    I posted this compilation a few years ago and it got quite a few downloads, but I've revisited it in the light of various upgrades that have come to light since then. The tracklisting is a bit different, and some of the tracks that are the same are now improved versions. It's basically now all...

    Curious Johnny Marr quote

    From The North Will Rise Again by John Robb, p. 96. The curious part is that these three songs are Morrissey-Duffy compositions, according to Mozipedia, although either Johnny or Goddard has got one title slightly wrong. Considering that Morrissey only performed in public twice with the band...

    Smiths "In Heat" live compilation

    I posted a different version of this a couple of months ago, but this is at least 15 or 16 times better. It's a CD-length MP3 compilation of live Smiths tracks and, this time round, it really rocks. I've almost definitely found the best sources for everything and I've taken some time to tweak...

    Smiths live compliation

    I've uploaded a compilation of Smiths live recordings as a present to the world. I've also DIY "remastered" most of the recordings. So they are better than the versions you already have. In theory, at least. It's titled "In Heat", which was a proposed title for the Rank LP. There's cover...

    "Restored" version of Girl Afraid, Amsterdam 1983

    Thought I would share this MP3 which I made for myself. The 1984 Vinyl Party recording has some sort of glitch about 1 min 20 into Girl Afraid. At least, it does on the version I have. I'm not sure what it is, but maybe the radio station was trying to mask a drop-out or a stage noise. A shame...
