Best Live Gigs?

All about The Smiths' music, gigs, stories, anything.

Postby elko » Tue Nov 02, 2004 12:16 am

Ok, so recently I have been on something of a Smiths download spree, and just getting any live gigs I can get my hands on. For those who have heard a few live Smiths mp3s, what gigs would you recommend? So far the Cardiff Uni gig has been the best quality/best performance I've found, I love it when the crowd sing along. Any recommendations?

What sources have you used for your downloads? Lucky enough to get them off one site? Of the 4 live gigs I have, the Apollo gig in '85 (Same Day Again bootleg) has an excellent soundboard quality (as also rated on a Smith bootleg site).

It's a program called Soulseek (from soulseek.com I presume). Very good for music.

I've got a reasonably good one called College Heroes '83, and it's a mixture of two gigs, I think. The best reason to get it really is the instrumental This Charming Man, played as people are leaving. There's quite an amusing bit where one person in the audience is like "Are they recording this?" <!--emo&:lol:-->Image<!--endemo-->

Obviously, the best one to look for is Thank Your Lucky Stars, complete with 'Angry Moz' in I Know It's Over. I haven't found it on Soulseek yet, but it's been on eBay a few times (I know that doesn't really help you though, Elko...).

As luck would have it, just as I pressed the 'submit post' button, I found TLYS on Soulseek! I really do recommend it (Soulseek, as well as the bootleg), there is SO much rare stuff on it.

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

I got TYLS and the Girl Afraid bootlegs from LokiTorrent. It's still there, it has the complete Smiths Catalog as well as Hatful, Louder, and the Peel Sessions. College Heroes doesn't sound familiar. The instrumental Charming Man sounds like a rare find!

Yeah, it is a good 'un, would be quite good for karaoke <!--emo&:lol:-->Image<!--endemo-->

Thanks for the Charming Man instrumental! Thought there was a lot of unnecessary banter at first, until I heard the crowd singing along half way through. <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo-->
