Here's a really nice remaster of a great recording of a great gig. Must have been nice to be in the crowd in an August evening at an outdoor venue.
I could have sworn this was seeded here already, but I can't find it. Maybe it came from Dime. The original cassette bootleg of this is in the hands of someone here on the site and there's a bit of backstory, but it's not for me to share.

I finally got around to doing this badly needed remastering. The usual: EQ, volume adjustments, and pitch correction. Sound went from merely good to excellent.
2 songs are missing from the show, I don't believe they circulate otherwise.

Another Porky Prime Cut From Terrapin Station!!!
Notes from PJLM (thanks!!!):
This concert was one of the wildest of the tour. Security had the hardest time restraining fans who desperately wanted to make it on stage. The setlist remained almost unchanged in Laguna Hills, but "Reel Around The Fountain" and "Hand In Glove" were dropped. Actually it is not impossible that "Bigmouth Strikes Again" was dropped as well although it is listed here. It seems the Smiths might not have returned to perform a second encore, given what happened in the first one (read further for details).
Morrissey wasn't very talkative throughout the evening. Besides introducing the lesser known "Panic, "Stretch Out And Wait" and "Is It Really So Strange?", he said "Thank you, you're very kind..." after "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out". Before "Never Had No One Ever", he asked "Any requests?". Titles were shouted from the audience, and to one or some of these he answered with a loud "No!". Before "The Queen Is Dead", other titles were shouted from the audience, and to one of these, Morrissey answered "We don't do that song anymore". In "The Queen Is Dead" he changed a line to "Life is very long, when you're handsome".
After "Meat Is Murder", as the violence was increasing, Morrissey said "I hope that the security don't ruin your night too much, but I'm sure that they'll do their best... never mind, they're outnumbered..." When he returned to the stage for the first encore after the band-only instrumental "Money Changes Everything", seeing how the security manhandled some fans, Morrissey exclaimed "Oh, God!" while Johnny added "Neanderthals, fucking idiots, these guys!". Then one third into following song "I Know It's Over", Morrissey interrupted his singing to shout to a bouncer: "Jesus Christ! Don't be so stupid! Leave him alone, you stupid idiot! Leave him!" He then resumed the song as if nothing had happened. A completely stunning moment.
A very good recording of this concert, probably from the soundboard, is being circulated on the official bootleg "Thank Your Lucky Stars", erroneously credited as being from the previous gig in Los Angeles. It is one of the best bootlegs for the Smiths, for content and sound quality. The whole concert is featured except for "Meat Is Murder" and, if it was actually performed, the final song "Bigmouth Strikes Again".
Fanmade copies of "Thank Your Lucky Stars" have also been seen with different artwork, under the erroneous title "Live In Los Angeles". The cover for one of these shows the four band members standing, same photo shoot as the one that provided the cover for the bootleg "The Cradle Snatchers". The cover to another one subtitled "Live In Los Angeles '86" uses an early photo of the band with Morrissey holding a bouquet of flowers.
In 2005 the tracks from "Thank Your Lucky Stars" were split over a bootleg LP and 2 bootleg 7"s. The LP, titled "Brighter Sides To Life" featured the songs "Still Ill", "I Want The One I Can"t Have", "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out", "How Soon Is Now?", "Frankly, Mr. Shankly", "Panic", "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "The Queen Is Dead", "Money Changes Everything" and "I Know It"s Over". The 7" bootleg titled "Good Times" featured "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want", "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore", "Stretch Out And Wait" and "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" and the other bootleg 7", "Break My Spine", featured the remaining 4 songs, "Is It Really So Strange?", "Never Had No One Ever", "Cemetary Gates" and "What She Said/Rubber Ring".
"Wilde About The Smiths", a factory pressed cd in digipack has "I Know It's Over" from this concert with many other live tracks, rarities and radio sessions.

I remember that I uploaded this here after release, but I cannot find it here now either. It'd be nice if whomever has the original cassette could share it...I'd love for this fileset to be obsolete ;)

I think this concert was on here before - I'd have to check my external HDs for it.
But many thanks David!
