///You've Got Everything Now
The Smiths' "Meat Is Murder" tour brought them back to their hometown where
they gave their local fans a slightly longer setlist of 18 songs. "You've Got
Everything Now" was added as a third encore to the typical 17-track setlist.
The audience was appreciative, but apparently not to Morrissey's satisfaction
as he commented a few times about their shyness.
"That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" was presented by Morrissey with the words:
"This is a song off our LP 'Breathing Is Murder'" while recent single
"Shakespeare's Sister" was introduced with "This is our new single... which no
doubt Piccadilly Radio are playing non stops [sic], I don't thinks [sic]...".
Just before launching into the song he said "Don't be so solemn, don't be
shy...".
Returning for the encore, Morrissey seemed again very unimpressed with the
crowd's apparent lack of enthusiasm, saying, "We hope you're just shy and not
bored". For some reason, he didn't sing the final "I need advice! I need
advice!" at the end of "Miserable Lie". The crowd must not have been so
unenthusiastic as they were given a third encore. As he often did for that
song, Morrissey took many lyrical liberties in "You've Got Everything now" and
whooped and yelped plenty. He sang "You've got nothing now", "No I never had
a job because I've never even had an interview" and "It could be true it could
be false I dunno".
BOOTLEGS
There were a few 'official' bootlegs for this concert, the best of which
being "Rusholme Ruffians Play At Home". It includes the complete concert bar
the first three songs and "Barbarism Begins At Home". The latter is actually
listed but not present. The recording is an audience one, of fair quality. It
was a reissue of the LP bootleg "Rusholme Ruffians" which lacked the same
tracks plus "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore", "Rusholme Ruffians" and "The
Headmaster Ritual".
"How Soon Is Now 85 Reissue 91" available on cd was produced from the same
recording. It lacks the first three tracks and the final four ones that were
performed, making it less interesting than "Rusholme Ruffians Play At Home".
MP3s from both cd bootlegs described here have made it onto file-sharing
networks.

Hang on - the text from www.passionsjustlikemine.com says this is from a fair audience source, yet recent comments on the thread for Steve's torrent of the same gig have listed this as an FM broadcast.
So who's right? Which is it?
And how does it sound?

The text quoted from "Passions Just Like Mine" was since corrected. It appears that the "Rusholme Ruffians Play At Home" bootleg is indeed produced from the radio broadcast.

Strange. To my ears it's not as good as a lot of the audience recordings seeded here.

I know, this is why it was first mistakenly identified as an audience recording. But the track listing matches that of the radio broadcast.
This was the 1980s, shows were usually recorded on a cassette before being transfered on any other support. This is where the FM quality was probably lost.
It's still quite listenable, it must be said.
