Soundsville Paul sent me FLACs from his master tape, so this is a generation upgrade on the version that Steve seeded previously. Here. This version sounds slightly slower.
Since the information is the same, here's what Steve had to say.

What She Said
It was 10 years since punk hit Manchester, and someone had decided to put on a commemorative concert called "The Festival Of The 10th Summer" and the Smiths were going to play. We immediately got tickets. They also added 3 more dates, presumably as a warm up to the Festival ... and to the upcoming US tour. The first date was in Glasgow and we were driving up .. which is a good 9 hours. We decided it would be easier to do it at night, so we set off from London about 10pm. I did all the driving while everyone else tried to catch some sleep ... I think I had a little 'help' staying awake. We drove into Glasgow between 6 and 7 in the morning ... had no problem finding a parking space, and wandered round the city streets waiting for the Tourist Office to open so we could book our B&B for the night. Surprisingly, we were their first customers of the day, and we were soon driving off to find the hotel ... and immediately decided to have a quick snooze. The others decided to go down to the venue in the early afternoon ... but I was still shattered from the drive, so decided to sleep a bit more.
Paul had just bought a new mic ... a tiny one that was a mic and plug in one, and just slotted into the top of the tape deck. He thought it would make it easier to tape un-noticed. He took it down to the venue, and they managed to get into the venue. The band were already soundchecking and Paul switched on his recorder. The band (minus Morrissey) seemed to be running through their set. He told me he had the recorder poking out the top of his jacket, and just left it running until the tape ran out ... which is why there's only 45 minutes of it and the last track cuts out half way through. I remember him coming back afterwards quite excited and playing me the version of Purple Haze that they had played.

I think this version is a little slower than it should be. Anyone else agree?
