Sounds like an audience recording which has probably been through cassette at
some point, so the quality isn't great.
I received this CD-R in a trade some time ago.

02. Nowhere Fast
03. Girl Afraid
04. This Charming Man
05. William It Was Really Nothing
06. Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
07. I Don't Owe You Anything
08. Still Ill
09. Jeane
10. Barbarism Begins At Home
11. Hand in Glove
12. What Difference Does It Make
13. You've Got Everything Now
14. Pretty Girls Make Graves
15. Miserable Lie
Ken Livingstone: "I learnt a very important lesson at a music festival. It was
the early 1980s and we - the Greater London Council - were holding an open-air
gig with the Smiths as the main attraction. I was expected to go on and make
one of my fascinating political speeches just before the Smiths were due to
perform, by which time the gathered crowds had been waiting for hours for them
to appear. It was at this point that I learnt the importance of keeping the
politics brief when you're standing in front of a huge festival audience that,
however politically sympathetic, really isn't there for the rhetoric. I risked
five quick minutes of viciously denouncing Margaret Thatcher before
introducing the band to plenty of applause. Any more and it might have been a
different story. A good time was had by all. This lesson stood me in good
stead when I had to speak just before Run DMC, De La Soul and Public Enemy in
successive years at our annual anti-racist festivals."

This concert was free, it was funded by the GLC (Greater London Council). The
Smiths were booked after Misty Roots, the Redskins and a few more acts. During
the Redskins' performance, a fight broke out in the audience and ended up on
stage. Despite this being a multi-act event, the majority of attendees were
there for the Smiths.
The concert went extremely well and the sound was excellent. The stage was
littered with flowers brought along by fans. After entering stage Morrissey
greeted the audience "Hello we're the Smiths!" and then the band launched into
"Nowhere Fast" which was getting its UK premiere. It would become The Smiths'
opening number of choice in subsequent shows. This early version had a
rockabilly feel to it and featured instrumental pauses that were dropped in
the studio version which was to be released early the following year. After
playing the song, Morrissey acknowledged the crowd's unfamiliarity with it by
introducing the next song with, "Okay, you know this one, I think,
probably...".
That next song was "Girl Afraid" which was returning to the setlist after
having been dropped for over a month. It had meanwhile been beefed up by
Johnny and sounded better than ever. Actually the live sound of the Smiths was
getting more and more refined at this point in time. Some numbers were given a
rockabilly-ish sound while "Pretty Girls Make Graves" was played at that time
with a reggae-ish bridge. During this concert, the latter song was played when
the Smiths returned to the stage for their second encore, just after Morrissey
led the crowd into a chant of "Smiths! Smiths! Smiths!"
Some of this information was provided by Mark Kencroft.
BOOTLEGS
This show was recorded and supposedly later broadcast on FM radio. However the
recording available on bootlegs is an audience one. The only 'official'
bootleg was produced on vinyl and is titled "GLC Jobs For A Change Festival".
Fanmade CD-Rs of this LP are available from bootleg traders. MP3s have made it
onto the digital trading networks.

You seem to have downloaded the file fine. If you click on 'Show peers in full details' at the top of this page, you'll see that both you and WaxyMolding have downloaded it. You're not uploading at the moment, because no one else has requested it.
All seems to be working fine from my point of view.
