The Smiths
London, Westfield College
1983.11.17
Recording source: cassette -> WAV -> FLAC6 (that's all I know)
This recording, brought to us by taper Dik.dik.dik, has not been shared before. There is a slightly better recording of this show already in circulation, but this one is still not bad. Check out the recorder's blog at http://2001punkgreats.blogspot.com/2010/09/smiths.html . His recording of Camden Dingwalls offered for download there is in low bitrate MP3. A lossless version was put up by me here a few days ago.
This should not be MP3-derived.
Torrent created on 18 December 2010.

Notes from PassionsJustLikeMine.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Smiths supposedly tried to pull out of this gig, but this is unconfirmed. The show was one of the best of this period. The audience kept shouting requests and had to be shushed a few times. Only students of the College could attend.
After "Still Ill" Morrissey asked "Does anybody feel very charming?" and this served as an introduction to the next planned number, "This Charming Man". After the latter song, as people kept shouting requests for "Miserable Lie" or "Reel Around The Fountain", he said "Well well well..." and shushed them. He had to do more shushing after "Pretty Girls Make Grave". When it was finally time for fan favourite "Reel Around The Fountain", he introduced it with the words "So, I think it's time for 'Reel Around The Foutain'..."
After "Miserable Lie" Morrissey shouted "Goodbye!" and he and the band left the stage. They soon returned under a thunder of applause. Morrissey just said "Well?" before the band launched into first encore "Accept Yourself". Following a second helping of latest single "This Charming Man" he said "Thank you! Bye-bye! Thank you!" and the Smiths left the stage again. They finally returned for a second encore and did "You've Got Everything Now", which was introduced by Morrissey screaming in a high pitched voice the 'Now' in "You've Got Everything <em>Now!!!</em>".
