The Smiths
Rarities, B-Sides & The Beeb CD2
BBC Interview
Source: ??? > Silver CD > EAC WAVs > FLAC
Confirmed as non-MP3 derived, by Tau Analyzer 1.2.
Torrent created on 23rd July 2006

Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A good, 1 hour BBC show presented by Bob Harris which includes interviews
with Morrissey (from 1983), Marr, Scott Piering, John Peel and John Porter.
All of the tracks are from Peel or Jensen sessions. The recording is good
quality, but the presenter sometimes talks over the start of the tracks.
I didn't include CD1 of this bootleg which includes some of the rarer B-sides,
partly because they're of better quality elsewhere and partly because Tau
Analyser tells me they derived from MP3.
The bootleg says that that it's an "Ultra rare unbroadcasted BBC special -
Smiths BBC Documentary 1992. Due to a legal battle between Johnny Marr and
The Smiths, the broadcast was never aired. It is in its entirety, unedited
and uncut sourced directly from the BBC master recording." As far as I can
tell, it's the same as the version broadcast on BBC Radio 6.

Glad to get this one lossless now ...
This is my favourite Smiths documentary, absolutely fantastic interview parts. I guess I listened to it about 30 times in the last 2 years. Did anyone notice that the sound of the peel session tracks is much clearer and has more depth? Seems to me like the tracks had been remastered for this never broadcasted documentary.
As I adore this recording so much, I made a custom cover with front and back. It shows my favourite actress (Emmanuelle Béart) in my favourite movie (Un Coeur en Hiver).
Download them in high quality:

Thanks for the artwork ourfrank, it's really good. The ones usually supplied with this bootleg have incorrect tracklists, information and spelling mistakes so this is much better!
As this bootleg was sourced from a BBC master reel, this is how the songs were intended to have been played on the radio. This is why the songs seem to have been remastered in this way.

Sorry about that. Quite correct: track 4 was These Things Take Time.
I've uploaded a new version of this torrent, the only changes being a rename of the file and a small change in the info. I don't know what this means for the existing seeders, but hopefully things will work out.

Thanks for the covers Our Frank, very stylish.
Although - god I hate to be a pedant - on the back, shouldn't it be 'unbroadcast' rather than 'unbroadcasted'?

thx, as 'broadcasted' is concerned: although I'm not a native speaker I know that 'to broadcast' is an irregular verb, but the regular form usage is quite common as with some other English verbs. Maybe it's more strict when it's used passively as in this case ...
By the way: John Peel mentions in the interview that he still has 'the original demo tapes' at home and is waiting for bids. Is he speaking of one of the Troy Tate demos or the Rough Trade demos or a third version?

I posted this on DIME and the mods banned it & claim it's the same tracks as Hatful of Hollow.
Is this true?

Yes, quite a few are on Hatful. After all, Hatful is a compilation of BBC sessions and this is a BBC show.
Did you know that the Peel Sessions came about because the BBC were bound by a 'Needle Time' legal directive which meant the amount of pre-recorded music (i.e. records) was restricted. The idea was to create more employment for musicians. The BBC got around this by re-recording tracks in their studios and broadcasting those instead, which weren't considered pre-recorded. I guess that without this weird directive Hatful wouldn't have existed.
