///Jeane
///Barbarism Begins At Home
In Boston, "Handsome Devil" was dropped from the setlist, but "Jeane" and
"Barbarism Begins At Home" were added for the first time on this leg of the
tour, as a third encore. The latter had been a regular when the band was
playing in the UK, but it had been dropped when they crossed the ocean.
"Jeane" had only been played for a few early dates, then for a short while in
1984 and for some strange reason, ressuscitated to be played as an encore in
the States despite never having been released there.
This was one of the best gigs of the American leg of the Meat Is Murder tour.
Boston really appreciated the Smiths and the crowd gave the band a very
enthusiastic and energetic welcome. The love must have traveled both ways
because Morrissey made sure that the audience knew how much their love was
appreciated. The band came back for three encores before the end was brought
by a massive stage invasion.
After "I Want The One I Can't Have", Morrissey said "Thank you, all you
troublemakers. "How Soon Is Now?" was the song that broke the Smiths in the
USA so it's no surprise it was wildly cheered as soon as the first notes were
recognised. "Stretch Out And Wait" was unreleased in the USA at the time,
Morrissey acknowledged this fact by introducing it with the words "This is one
that slipped through the net... it's called 'Stretch Out And Wait'." The
version performed in Boston was still the single version, not the alternate
one with different intro the band would later be doing. After the song
Morrissey thanked the audience again, this time with "Thank you for your
support, thank you for your letters, they mean a great deal, thank you."
As was standard in 1985, the instrumental outro of "Please Please Please Let
Me Get What I Want" was skipped and Morrissey stretched the song by repeating
the second verse. In "Miserable Lie", Morrissey cheekily changed two lines to
"It means I'd like to be your underwear." After that song which ended the
second of three encore, Morrissey expressed his love again "We love you,
goodbye!" and returning for the final encore, added "Thank you, (...) you're
so sweet, thank you." In "Jeane", Johnny cleverly inserted the intro riff
from the Beatles' "Day Tripper" in the instrumental bridge. At the very end
of the song Morrissey yelped loudly instead of singing "Oh Jeane!". Echo was
used in "Barbarism Begins At Home" to beef up Morrissey's grunts.
BOOTLEGS
A reasonably good audience recording featuring a lot of fan screams and shouts
is circulated on untitled bootlegs. MP3s have made it onto file trading
networks.

Is anyone seeding this anymore? I'd love to get it. It must be the show mentioned in the 33 1/3 book on Meat is Murder.

Will try to keep this one moving along. IMHO it's pretty close to the best Smiths boot around.
